Product Description

Amazon.ca

Martin Scorsese handles directing duties in this 1986 sequel to the classic 1961 film The Hustler, which marks the return of Paul Newman to the role of pool shark Fast Eddie Felson. Anxious to break into the big time again, Eddie finds a talented protégé (Tom Cruise) to groom; but with the addition of the latter's manipulative girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) and the wild streak in Cruise's character, the trio make for a fascinating portrait in group psychology. The cast is brilliant, the script by Richard Price (Clockers) is a paragon of tightly controlled character study and drama (at least in the film's first half), and Scorsese and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus make an ornate show of the collision and flight of pool balls through space--something of a metaphor for the dynamics among the three principals. The film is generally regarded as weaker in its second half, and rightly so, as everything that was interesting in the first place disappears. Still, Newman won a deserved Oscar for his performance. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Experience legendary actor Paul Newman in the role that earned him an Academy Award(R) (Best Actor, 1986, THE COLOR OF MONEY). Newman joins Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE -- GHOST PROTOCOL) in Academy Award-winning Martin Scorsese's (Best Director, 2006, THE DEPARTED) brilliant and powerful drama, THE COLOR OF MONEY -- now available for the first time on Blu-ray with an astonishing digital transfer. Revisiting one of his most memorable roles, Newman stars as Fast Eddie Felson from THE HUSTLER. Eddie forms a profitable alliance with the flashy and talented young pool shark Vince (Cruise), but all bets are off when Vince's arrogance costs them more than just a few matches. Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this dazzling classic -- now better than ever on Blu-ray!

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this release! June 23 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This might be the worst transfer I've ever seen on a blu-ray. This is no better then the dvd, so stay away from this release until a new transfer comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong, solid sequel to the Hustler ...... June 22 2013
By JT TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's Back! Aug. 5 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Paul Newman's back as Fast Eddie Felson, crackshot pool hustler. This is the sequel to the 1961 classic "The Hustler" (a film I still have to see.) Fast Eddie is back 25 years later; wiser, sharper, and better-looking than ever... This time, he's mentor to a naive, yet obnoxious, Tom Cruise. He finds out from Eddie he still has a lot to learn. The two make a cool pair. No wonder Newman won the Oscar for this one, although he should've won years earlier. One of his best performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite movie of all time July 14 2003
Format:DVD
This is my favorite movie ever (chased closely by Apocalypse Now). I have watched it dozens of times, and i never seem to get sick of it. I am an avid pool player, but you don't have to be one yourself to appreciate this masterpiece, which IMO rivals anything else Scorsese has done in his long distinguished career. The whole movie exudes style from start to finish, and Paul Newman is quite simply the epitome of cool. His performance is intense and laid-back at the same time, and he never over-acts (the most widespread chronic disease in Hollywood). Cruise is great as the young cocky upstart, Mastrantonio does an admirable job as his tough girlfriend, and the movie is sprinkled with a whole host of really great supporting performances, including one by Forrest Whitaker as the hustler who out-hustles the master, and a great (quick) one by Iggy Pop of all people in a barroom scene. The movie flows and is filled with energy, the cinematography is spectacular (in particular in a scene where the camera follows closely behind the pool balls as they scatter all over the table). Newman is as classy as he's ever been, and was wholly deserving of the Oscar for this performance. The plot is riveting, and takes us from ex-legend Fast Eddie Felson's discovery of a new prodigy (Cruise's character Vincent) through Vincent's initiation into the Art of Hustling and a whirlwind tour of east coast bars and poolhalls, all the way through to the stirring conclusion as the Master battles the Student in a winner-take-all final game of 9 ball. Perhaps my favorite scene is when, in the midst of an ongoing moral dilemma, Eddie looks down to take his shot and sees his reflection in the 8-ball. He pauses, then straightens up, unscrews his cue and forfeits the match, unable to face himself. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The best pool movie ever! Jan. 18 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Paul Newman and Tom Cruise, some of the greatest actors of all time team up to play of pool. And Paul Newman takes Tom Cruise to pool tables for lots of pool tournaments. Newman won an Oscar for the betrayal of a pool shark who trains a hotshot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome Dec 27 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Just a classic movie and made during the prime of the 80's. I love this movie, it's inspired me to be great pool player. This also inspired me to play 9-ball like crazy. This is right there with Aliens, Godfather II, T2 as the best sequel of all time. I first saw this movie in school for Film Class, didn't think much of it at first, but after I got done watching it I said to myself was great movie. This is one of those movies ya take out every now & then, sit on the recliner or sofa, eat your favorite snack and enjoy watching. Newman's performance alone is one the best I've seen of him. Cruise & Masterontonio give notable performances as well. One movie that should be on everybodys TOP 10. After watching Scorsese's great job directing Raging Bull (he is my favorite director by the way) he equaled that with The Color of Money, just look at some of the pool shots he got, classic cinematography from one of best directors ever. Even if you don't like 9-ball or Pool, get this movie and you'll have a new found understanding of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels Like A Guilty Pleasure July 5 2002
Format:DVD
This is one of my all time favorite movies, but I'm always a little embrassed by that. It's Tom Cruise afterall. It should be packed with Cheese, and not the good "Big Trouble In Little China" kind, more like the "Cocktail" kind. But, it works. It's the old pro and the eager kid and stuff about hustling, and making a quick buck, and competetion, and men and women and men and their Dads (if Paul Neuman isn't Tom's dad-symbol, I failed out of psychology 101), and so on. It's not so much about the plot as the people. If you want action and special effects, move along, this movie isn't for you. If you aren't into guy movies, move along. The subject of machismo is never mentioned, but it's present, not in a chest beating way but in a strong competetive learning-to-be-a-man sort of way, so if that doesn't work for you, wait for the ya-ya sisterhood to come out on DVD.
