Synopsis


The Color of Money
Oscar-nominated in 1961 for his performance as pool hustler Fast Eddie Felson in The Hustler, Paul Newman won that award a quarter century later when he reprised the role in The Color of Money. At the end of The Hustler, Felson was banned for life from playing the game professionally. In the intervening years, he has become what the despicable George C. Scott was in the 1961 film: a front man for younger hustlers, claiming the lion's share of the winnings. His latest "client" is arrogant young Tom Cruise, who is goaded into accepting Felson's patronage by his avaricious girl friend Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Cruise learns not only the refinements of the game, but also the dirty trickery that will help him lure in the suckers. As Cruise becomes successful on these terms, Felson seethes with jealousy, hitting the bottle and carelessly allowing himself to fall victim to another hustler. He tells Cruise to get lost, and vows to make an honest comeback. It is inevitable from this point onward that the younger and the older player will square off in a game for the biggest stakes of all: Fast Eddie Felson's self-respect. Both the original Hustler and The Color of Money were based on novels by Walter Tevis. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Just got this and The Hustler for the entire Fast Eddie story. This movie is easily 5 stars, but I only give the blu ray 4 stars due to the lack of special features, especially considering its the Anniversary Ed. (also just realized that the cover has them playing with the wrong hands. Newman shoots righty and Cruise shoots lefty. The cover has it switched)

    The color of money is a really good movie about a young and upcoming pool hustler played by Tom Cruise and his teacher played by Paul Newman. Good acting by both great music and nice transfer to blu ray. If you are a fan of the 80s movies then this is one for you.

    Most sequels are just so-so but this is great. My wife who is a Tom Cruise fan loved it.

    Paul Newman is one of the main actors, need I say more? I have always been a Tom Cruise fan and the combination of these two actors was great. Check this one out.

    Paul Newman and Martin Scorsese should be all you need to know, but the review required more than that. This is a fantastic movie.
