Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: So is Perdition still a must-see? No question. But it's tough to fuss about it much when a picture is this fussy. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Apr 14, 2013

Fresh: While crisply edited and unindulgent, Mendes' work is gratifyingly old-school in its rejection of modern-day stylistic agitation, the better to achieve a slow but inexorable build to its climax. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Feb 17, 2011

Rotten: Visually, the picture is all of a piece, but it's a self-conscious piece of work -- all dark-toned academic classicism. – David Denby, New Yorker, Apr 14, 2013

Fresh: What makes the movie pay off is moving pictures of real action and of intimate scenes between man and boy that are all the more moving for being understated. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Apr 14, 2013

The book was better….

Another graphic novel turned into a big screen film….They should have stuck with the original ending for the story line, it had a far deeper meaning.


It's really an amazing movie. It's filled with emotion and has a great story. Absolutely beautiful!

i have been waiting and waitng.

This is by far one of the best movies created. The story line of good and evil...the fasntastic soundtrack (which i have had since the movie came out) makes the movie even better..Tremendous performances by Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig, Paul Newman and Jude Law...make up a all star cast.... Highly recommend this for any digital library.
