About Road to Perdition

In the captivating movie "Road to Perdition," we are introduced to a cast of compelling characters that drive the narrative forward. Tom Hanks delivers a powerful performance as Michael Sullivan, a stoic and skilled hitman who works for the Irish-American crime boss John Rooney, portrayed by the talented Paul Newman. Alongside Hanks, we see the young and promising Tyler Hoechlin as Michael Sullivan Jr., Sullivan's impressionable and innocent son who becomes an unwitting witness to his father's violent world.

The plot of "Road to Perdition" is a gripping tale of loyalty, betrayal, and redemption. Michael Sullivan, a man of few words but with a deep sense of duty and honor, serves as the right-hand man to the aging crime boss John Rooney. Despite the nature of their work, Sullivan holds Rooney in high regard, viewing him as a father figure and a mentor. However, this bond is tested when Sullivan's son, Michael Jr., inadvertently witnesses a brutal murder committed by Rooney's biological son, Connor.

In the aftermath of this harrowing event, Sullivan finds himself torn between his loyalty to Rooney and his duty as a father to protect his son. With his family's safety hanging in the balance, Sullivan makes the difficult decision to go on the run, seeking refuge from the criminal underworld that threatens to engulf them. As he navigates this dangerous journey, Sullivan is driven by two powerful motivations: to ensure the survival of his son and to exact revenge on those who have wronged him, setting the stage for a tense and thrilling climax.
