Great Movie Making, Lousy Movie
A review of Road to Perdition
by Matt Mason

First off: yes, it was gorgeous; Yes, the music made me swoon; Yes the acting was top-notch. But when you come down to it, it was a movie little different from, say, Pretty Woman... just with a Hitman With A Heart Of Gold instead of a Hooker With A Heart Of Gold and, you have to admit, Tom Hanks looking far less sexy than Julia Roberts.

Director: Sam Mendes

Stars: Tom Hanks, Tyler Hoechlin, Paul Newman, Jude Law, Daniel Craig

Rating: R

Release: 07-12-2002

Time: 119 minutes

Buy Movie at I never believe there's any chemistry between the Tom Hanks and his son other than they occupy the same space for much of the movie and speak words to each other sometimes.

Then we're supposed to believe that a man whose occupation is murdering men becomes more human through his work as he really means well. Sure.

This is the kind of shallow white bread masquerading as art which just annoys the hell out of me as it suckers people into believing in it when it essentially shows us plenty of glamor and glitz but tells us nothing.
