Format: DVD
By Scorsese's standards this film could be described as reletively unheard of. After all he has been responsible for directorial masterpieces such as Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Goodfellas. Yet The Color of Money can also be cosidered a classic. The perfomance from Newman is stunning and Cruise gives, arguably, his best performance as Vincent a Pool protege to Newmans teacher as he returns to the role from the 1961 classic The Hustler, as Fast Eddie Felson, the original Pool Hustler. The story develops after Fast Eddie discovers Vincent, seeing his incredible talent for the game of pool. The aging former pool player takes Vincent under his wing in which Eddie takes him round his old haunts with Vincents girlfriend, Carmen (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) to teach him how to win and become the underdog, to culminate in the world championship in Atlantic city. Things However dont go to plan leading to the resurrection of Fast Eddies Pool playing ways. However the most interesting aspect of the film is that it is fantastically unpridictable as it changes direction at every moment, that never fails to suprise. With its slick camera angles excellent mood setting soundtrack and intrigueing ending, this is definately a must see movie.

Ok this is not the most profound film ever - pool as a subject matter, but it is a truly underrated flick. Much as other films get the rave reviews from the 80s this flick really does capture some of the zeitgeist as well as any other films of the era and Newman's performance is for me the best of his career and well worthy of the Best Actor Oscar. Whether you are a pool player or not his performance is worth seeing this film for alone, but even if you are'nt the tournament at the end is fantastic also. Slightly unsatisfying ending, but we'll forgive that - this is a great film.

The more of his movies I see, the more I think that Paul Newman may be the best actor of modern times. Here he is Fast Eddie Felson, a well-off liquor salesman, a former pool hustler, was one of the best. As he explained to young Vincent (Tom Cruise, 23), "Money won is twice as sweet as money earned", and that is what this movie is about. Although by his own admission he "has quit", Eddie misses the action and sees an opportunity to get back in by teaching the hustling game to brash, fiery, and talented Vincent, when he witnesses Vincent demoralizing one of the hustlers by beating him so easily. But Vince is a tough case, he is so competitive that he can't lose for the sake of suckering in a mark. By Eddie's accounting, if you lose a few hundred then you might win a few thousand when other hustlers think you are an easy mark. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is Carmen, Vincent's girlfriend. Helen Shaver is Janelle, Eddie's girlfriend. Good movie, especially for Newman and Cruise.

Yet another minor masterpiece from wunderkind Scorsese, however this movie is somewhat dated. The music is without a doubt 1980s. Who could forget Tom Cruise running the table while "doing the Wearwolves of London." Not an image that leaves my head with any immediacy. The director (have I mentioned its Martin Scorsese yet?) seems to be quite inventive with many different types of camera shots on the pool table.

The Hustler was a little more down to earth than this 1986 sequel. It was more of a drama about alcoholism and self-destruction; where as The Colour of Money is more of a fun pool-action and redemption of character film (more akin to Rounders- same writer as Colour of Money). It still has the layers of drama; they just strike a different chord. Regardless this is still a brilliant little piece of film making and establishes Tom Cruise as a young talent as well as reestablishing Paul Newman as one of the all time greats.

Format: DVD
Following on from "The Hustler" 1961, Paul Newman re-creates his role as "Fast" Eddie Felson, who now appears to be a successful Liquor salesmen after being forced to give up active playing in the first movie. He know is found hanging around Pool Halls staking talented players rather than playing, by all accounts comfortable in terms of earnings and career.

Tom Cruise, playing shark Vincent Lauria, is scouted by Newman and they hit the road as he re-discovers his lost love of both Pool and hustling, gambling their way around the state towards the big tournament at Atlantic City. Felson sees himself in Cruises character, and teaches him the ropes on being a pool pro. One of the criticisms of this movie is that when asked about his pool playing days (I.e. The Hustler) Eddie replies "Actually I was retired. Sometimes you get involved with the wrong people. Way back West, it's dead and buried, I don't even think about it anymore", and that's just about the only link to it! One of the characters in the first movie makes an appearance however.

Creating Lauria into the best player, gives Eddie the platform to test himself against his best game, that is the message of the movie in my opinion. Felson creates his biggest adversary, and the movie explores that perhaps in life the biggest obstacles are ones that we create ourselves.

On a simple level it is good to see Tom Cruise, & Paul Newman in earlier roles.
