Road To Perdition

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.

Suggested correction: There is a bullet hole in the rear view glass.

Factual error: When Tom Hanks is removing his belongings, his son sees him unload a .45 calibre pistol. That type of gun was not available until 1940.

Suggested correction: Unless you're talking about a different gun, Michael Sullivan uses a Colt M1911A1. The M1911 has always been a .45 caliber weapon. The M1911A1 became available in 1924 (and still a .45).

Suggested correction: The classic shape of the semi-automatic pistol Tom Hanks uses is a 1911 series available in 1911 and onwards adopted by the US Army. In 1924 it was slightly revised and known as the 1911A1 series. Both were double action with 7 round magazines. Either gun looks very similar at a distance and were both available in 1931. Imfdb.org has identified the Tom Hanks pistol as a 1911A1. And the same for Daniel Craig's gun.

Factual error: Tom Hanks is driving his car over a bridge in downtown Chicago in 1931. In the background is the elevated train structure. An aluminum bodied train passes on the trestel in the background. This aluminum bodied train is of 1980's contruction. In the 1930's the train cars were of wood construction and painted brown. They were still in service in the 1950's.

More trivia for Road To Perdition

Question: I'm guessing that Jude Law's character's face at the end of the film had something to do with the fight they had in the hotel, where Tom Hanks's character shot him in the face. But why did he have all those little marks, if Tom Hank's character only shot him once?

Answer: Tom Hanks shot at a glass lamp, which shattered right before Jude's face, causing lots of shards of glass to cut his face.

Were they scarred or stitched because it bothers me.

I think that's why McGuire shoots Sullivan out of revenge... He wasn't ordered to but after his disfigurement he wants revenge and kills Sullivan That's my take... After all Al says it's over after Connor Rooney goes down but it's now personal for McGuire.

Answer: I think that McGuire's last kill was personal. I think that after Sullivan deforms his face McGuire is out for blood. After all Al said after he kills Connor it's over. So it probably was but McGuire's kill was personal because of his deformity. It was not because he was instructed to kill Sullivan.
