This is a great sequel to the Hustler. Paul Newman returns older, more experienced, wiser, and jaded. Tom Cruise is young, cocky, and Flaky. His flakiness is part of what makes him so good. Elizabeth M. is sexy, confident, and intelligent. These three actors combine to support and move along a very solid storyline that is never boring and always entertains. Again, like the Huster, the pool shooting scenes are just great. This one of course was shot in color, so there is some old nostalgic movie loss.
But still, this is a great, strong sequel to the Hustler. Best watched one right after the other. Could also be enjoyed alone, because I think that both movies can stand on their own as individual stories. Anyway, lots of fun, and if you can pick it up in the eight to ten dollar range, worth it and then some.
