David Edelstein
Law gives a doozy of a performance: He's fond of bulging his eyes, curling his head like a gargoyle, and displaying a set of rotten yellow teeth. This is some of the most flamboyantly bad acting since Brad Pitt in "Twelve Monkeys" (1995). An Oscar nomination would appear inevitable. Full Review

Washington Post
There's something impressive and yet lacking about everything. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Romanticizes gangland Chicago, but no more so than other films set in the same period. And, like almost every movie about the mob, this one deals with themes of family, loyalty, and betrayal -- albeit without the intensity of some of the great ones ("The Godfather," "Goodfellas"). Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Long and winding though it may be, Road to Perdition gets to places that are well worth the trip. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Mendes' second effort plays like a familiar song transposed to a minor key, a gangland fable soaked in portent and fatalism until its familiarity ceases to be an issue. Full Review
