The Color of Money Reviews

James Plath
Movie Metropolis

It's entertaining and at times even insightful, but nowhere near as powerful-or memorable-as "The Hustler."

Creative Loafing

Working with his crack technical team, Scorsese turns the film into a high-wire act, using everything from the crack of the balls to the soundtrack (best bit: Cruise playing and preening to Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London") to pump up the action.

A gamble that teens will get this adult's movie.

Matt's Movie Reviews

As a standalone movie, it is a memorable entry in Scorsese and Newman's filmographies. But as a companion piece to The Hustler, it is an exceptional example on how to revisit an iconic character with respect, and above all, with a healthy new vision.

A joy to see two masters (Scorsese and Newman) at ease with their work, and one, Cruise, in the making.

A hard act to follow, but Scorsese does it in style.

We are not on Rocky's side of the street, but in Martin Scorsese country, where bent character, not sentiment, shapes destiny, and the best the struggling human spirit can hope for is a split decision.

Lacking the urgency, dramatic momentum, and mood of the wonderful 1961 The Hustler, Scorsese's sequel is an enjoyable but ultimately disappointing sequel, and one of his most generic and least personal works.

Word is that Paul Newman gave Iggy Pop the cold shoulder during the filming.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Boasts two bravura performances--from Newman, who finally -- and deservedly -- won an Oscar for Best Actor, and Cruise, who is a joy to behold. Watch for Forest Whittaker and Iggy Pop in colorful bit roles.

Pic has a distinctive pulse of its own with exceptional performances by Paul Newman and Tom Cruise.

A solidly crafted entertainment that, for the most part, strikes a successful balance between commercial necessity and personal expression.

Scorsese's direction at its most downmarket and upbeat -- never have pool tables, balls and cues looked so rich and strange.

Undernecessary sequel. Cinematography was incredible, though.

For the bulk of the run time, The Color of Money excels on its intended terms as a sexy genre picture, mostly thanks to an energetic star turn courtesy of Tom Cruise.

The film is carried by Paul Newman's intelligent performance.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

As atuações seguras do trio principal e a direção enérgica de Scorsese transformam o bilhar em um jogo tão fascinante quanto o futebol ou o pôquer.

A stunning vehicle -- a white Cadillac among the other mainstream American movies of the season.
