Road to Perdition Tom hanks

Road to perdition

First, let me start off by saying Road to Perdition is a simple story. It can be summed up as follows: (warning spoilers ahead)

ROAD TO PERDITION

FADE IN:

EXT. BEACH

FUTURE DRUG ADDICT PORN STAR EVENTUAL SUICIDE CHILD STAR TYLER HOECHLIN is standing on beach looking at water.

TYLER HOECHLIN:
Let me tell you a story about my father, Tom Hanks…

FADE IN:

INT. TOM HANK’S HOUSE

TOM HANKS:
I am a ruthless assassin who works for my father figure PAUL NEWMAN, leader of an Irish gang in which no one has an Irish accent.

TYLER HOECHLIN:
Oh ok, I didn’t know what it was exactly you did.

PAUL NEWMAN:
I love you Tom Hanks

PAUL NEWMAN’s EVIL SON:
I hate you Tom Hanks

PAUL NEWMAN’s EVIL SON kills Tom hanks wife and other kid.

PAUL NEWMAN’s EVIL SON:
HA HA!

TOM HANKS:
Bitch, now you die.

TOM HANKS kills everyone in a cool, dramatic fashion involving machine guns and stuff. Lots of shit blows up. Oh yeah, Jude Law appears for no reason.

JUDE LAW:
Die Tom hanks

Jude Law kills Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks kills Jude Law.

TYLER HOECHLIN:
Well, guess I’m an orphan now. Life’s a bitch

SAM MANDES (Director)
This wasn’t ANYTHING Like my other film, AMERICAN BEAUTY. In that one I don’t have the main character die in a surprise fashion at the end of the film right when everything is going right in order to drive home a poin..oh wait I guess both films are exactly the same. My bad. Oh wait! AMERICAN BEAUTY has a dysfunctional family while this one dosen….FUCK…hmm..Well AMERICAN BEAUTY has a creepy secondary character who likes to record strange things on camera while this one has..JESUS CHRIST I made the same movie twice!!!

THE END

So yeah, it’s a simple story. What makes it worth watching is the acting, cinematography and themes. It’s a very well-told story, beautiful to watch, and really made an impact on me.

I have 2 Major Complaints tho:

1) Why didn’t Tom Hanks finish off Jude Law? Tom Hanks is an assassin himself, he knows how ruthless people like him are, why didn’t he walk the 2 inches over to jude law and shoot him in the head? it was out of Character for Tom Hanks to not finish someone off, especially someone who has been sent to kill him. I can’t get over this plot hole.

2) The snow was fake as shit. C’mon Sam Mendes, how much does a snow blower cost? Usin that fake shit was insulting to our intelligence. Maybe it’ll fool the LA folks, but not us East Coasters.

And although this film is basically American Beauty: 30’s Gangster edition..it was good and had some beautiful scenes.

The one that stood out for me was when Tom Hanks kills Paul Newman. Best massacre ever. Should have ben FAR bloodier though, especially cus it was rated R. C’mon, let the red stuff flow.

Highly recommended, please go watch this.

    Aaon and I tried to watch it twice, but it has a realllly sloooowww start. We planned on renting it again but haven’t gottne around to it yet. Maybe we eill try harder now that we know it doesn’t all suck. Then again, he wasn’t a big American Beauty fan. I’ll make him watch it though. Hehe.
    And I also noticed in the first half hour that the snow was very fake. Hehe.
