HMV DVD Editor

In an effort to escape the "good guy" tag, which has followed his career, Tom Hanks took the lead in this dark gangster movie, a ruthless killer no less.

Here, Hanks plays Michael Sullivan,a devoted family man who also happens to work for John Rooney(Newman), a major Irish gangster. When one of Sullivan's sons curiosity of what his fathers' job is leads him to witness his father at a mob hit, Michael realises the danger to his family. Sure enough, when his wife and other son are gunned down, he has to take his elder son on the road, to protect him, and find retribution against his family's murderers.

American Beauty director Sam Mendes once again makes a film that is beautiful to look at: Chicago in the 1930's is brought to life with a staggering realism. The heart of the film is the relationship between father & son, as the boy looks at his father in a new light, and the bond which wasn't there to begin with is tightened through the tragedy that unfolds. Hanks makes an assured bad guy while Tyler Hoechlin makes an impressive debut as his son. Paul Newman reminds us just what a superb actor he is in a relatively small role, while our own Daniel Craig brings real menace to the role of Newman's son.

Road To Perdition is an all round class act of a movie. Steve Waites, HMV Middlesbrough
