Running Time: 117 mins

Road To Perdition is an American film about a boy who travels with his father, who is a hitman, to a job in another city, which prompts him to question whether his father is truly a good man or not.

I enjoyed this film because of its intriguing story, and also its realistic fighting scenes, as well as Tom Hanks’ performance as he tried to keep his son loyal to him while keeping up his job.

However, the film did seem to go on for a bit, and there were lengthy periods of time in which very little actually happened that was crucial to the overall storyline, however the ending was truly shocking, which made up for this.

Overall, this gets a 7.7 because it was enjoyable and quite cool, however it did get a bit boring at points for a gangster movie of this accolade.
