  1. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Color of Money

    The good book says that this is Scorsese in workman mode, building B.O. cred for Last Temptation of Christ. Yes, it's frivolous, even with the big themes it flirts with, but the dialogue crackles, and the tag team of Ballhaus/Schoonmaker ensure it's never boring to look at. Newman is great—he could do this in his sleep—even if that means Cruise looks painful next to him. When naysayers trash it, they're hustling you.

  2. Ethan's rating of the film The Color of Money

    In the hands of anybody else this would be a shitty movie but Scorsese turns an unnecessary sequel into a very watchable and enjoyable film.

  5. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Wäre The Color Of Money nicht von Martin Scorsese, hätte ich ihn vermutlich anders betrachtet. So erwartete ich nichts weniger als einen aufregenden und aussergewöhnlichen Film. The Color Of Money ist weder aussergewöhnlich, noch besonders aufregend... mehr auf cinegeek.de

    "You gotta have two things to win. You gotta have brains and you gotta have balls. Now, you got too much of one and not enough of the other."

  7. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Scorsese's worst. It's not one of the worst films ever but it's certainly one of the most pointless. Well, except to get Newman an Oscar. Only 1 star for Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and that's it. Worst ending ever, seriously what the fuck was accomplished in the entirety of this 2 hour trainwreck. Even as a massive fan of Scorsese, I urge everyone to avoid this at all cost and revisit Rossen's masterpiece instead.

  8. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film The Color of Money

  9. Easton Dubois's rating of the film The Color of Money

    I wish Paul Newman held me like he held that pool cue.

  10. Lee Belcher's rating of the film The Color of Money

  11. Matthew Montgomery's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Vastly underrated work in Scorsese's oeuvre. From the director's opening narration, to the kinetic camerawork to the fantastic ending, this is a great movie. Not the best in Scorsese's career, but not the worst.

  12. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Color of Money

    The first honest letdown in Scorsese's career, mainly due to its formulaic screenplay. The ending is especially disappointing with no payoff at all.

  13. Samuel Righi's rating of the film The Color of Money

  14. a Smith's rating of the film The Color of Money

    The allusions to Eddie becoming Bert seem forestalled by the necessity(?) of making Newman's character likeable, though his corruption of Vincent (itself a bit obfuscated by the structure), and his (and the film's) callousness toward that make it almost worth being sequel (almost adding to the original), but probably worth a watch as a standalone picture/story (almost a great one). Overall, it is a movie of almosts.

  15. PolarisDiB's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Everywhere The Hustler evokes sadness, this movie tries to be stylish. Everywhere The Hustler captures your interest, this movie makes you want to break a pool cue over Tom Cruise's neck. -- PolarisDiB

  16. Joe Godburn's rating of the film The Color of Money

    A solid movie featuring engaging performances and Scorsese demonstrating his love of film by taking his tremendous skills to do exactly what should be asked of any director: tell a story and tell it well. Nice early performance by Forest Whitaker as well.

  17. Tony Zhou's rating of the film The Color of Money

    It's pretty fun, and Scorsese goes nuts on the dolly. But I mean, why not just watch The Hustler instead?

  18. Ssssssss's rating of the film The Color of Money

    the way scorsese shot the movie is is truley brilliant, it may not be his best but its his most well shot movie..... the pool scenes are a prime example and also paul newman is great as always

  19. Roscoe's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Entirely useless, of no value or interest whatsoever. The idea of a follow up about Fast Eddie Felson is promising, but without George C. Scott reprising his role as Bert there is simply no reason for the film to exist. See THE HUSTLER, if you haven't already.

  20. CJ Roy's rating of the film The Color of Money

    The Hustler is an incredible film and after watching The Color of Money, you not only appreciate it more but realize how unnecessary Color really is. The acting is pretty strong but it is very obvious that Scorsese's heart is not in this material, I believe he admitted to doing it to help fund The Last Temptation of Christ and it is quite obvious, if so. Also, one of the worst endings I have seen in some time.

  21. Mr. Wills's rating of the film The Color of Money

    I love Paul Newman and some of the shots in this movie. But Tom Cruise is a total D Bag and only mildly successful in portraying one in this film. I agree with you Pierluigi Puccini that this is a "sequel to an undisputed classic."

  22. Phil Worfel's rating of the film The Color of Money

    It suffers some in comparison to The Hustler but Color of Money is a really great film in its own right. The performances all around are really tightly observed and the plot is exciting and surprising. A cool follow up the the Fast Eddie character.

  23. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Color of Money

    Sequel to an undisputable classic. Scorsese delivers a fine cocktail, great timing, photography, and performances, especially Paul Newman's "fast" Eddie Felson the one and only hustler, this time back for some more struggle against himself.
