Revealing mistake: At the end when Sullivan is shot in the back while looking out the window, you can see blood come through the front of his shirt, meaning the bullets must have exited his body, yet the window he is standing in front of isn't shattered by the bullets that had passed through him. Also, immediately after this when Jude Law sets up his camera to take photos of Tom Hanks dying, the blood all over the glass is completely gone. The window is clean.
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.
Michael Sullivan, Jr.: I couldn't do it.
Michael Sullivan: I know.
