Ghosts: Road to Perdition

Hello all. I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been very busy with life. but I've managed to get enough time together here to post another great scene from another great movie.

One of my personal favorites, and possibly one of the most underrated films of all time, Road to Perdition (2002).


The film is the follows a American-Irish Gangster Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks) and his son Michael Jr. (Tyler Hoechlin).  Michael Sullivan works as a hitman for mob boss Rooney Sullivan (Paul Newman) and his son Connor (Daniel Craig). Conner turns against Michael and his family when Michael Jr. witnesses a crime he committed, a which point Michael and his soon flee to Chicago.

A couple of points to note here. Mainly that the whole of the main cast, Tom Hanks, the great Paul Newman, Daniel Craig, and Jude Law (who makes an appearance as an assassin) are all at the top of their game here. Thomas Newman did the soundtrack here, and as is always with him, it is great.

WARNING: this scene contains spoilers.
In this scene I have chosen, Michael Sullivan has no options but to take revenge on his previous boss. This scene is very well shot, with the poetic weather and a great piece from the soundtrack. My favorite scene from the movie.
