Road To Perdition

Sullivan is nursed back to health by an elderly couple on a farm. He and Michael then leave, leaving them alot of money. Sullivan tracks down Paul Rooney and kills all of his men then confronts him face to face. Rooney senior then tells him he is glad it was him. Sullivan guns him down, although he does it reluctantly. Sullivan then makes a deal with the hotel guy Nitti and goes to a hotel to find Connor Rooney taking a bath. He shoots hiw twice, straight in the head. He and Michael then make it to Perdition. Everything then points to a happy ending until Maguire shows up, shooting Sullivan twice. Maguire is horrifically disfigured because of Sullivan shooting him in the face. Michael then shows up, holding a gun on Maguire. he can't pull the trigger however so Sullivan, realising this, shoots Maguire while his back is turned. Sullivan tells Michael he is sorry and dies, glad that Michael could not kill. Michael is then heard in a voiceover saying that all his father ever wanted was for his son not to turn out like him and that he never held a gun again after that. He goes back to the elderly couple on the farm.

Continuity mistake: In the end of the diner scene Jude Law fires after the car with Sullivan and his son. A bullet goes through the rear window but not through the windshield. We see the bullet path go by Tom Hanks' head. Regardless, there's no bullet hole anywhere in the car afterwards.
