It doesn't have the electricity, the wound-up tension, of [Scorsese's] best work, and as a result I was too aware of the story marching by.

Undernecessary sequel. Cinematography was incredible, though.

In the end, Money is a scratch, a contrived cliffhanger that sets us up for Hustler III.

The Color of Money is a good movie, but perhaps not a good sequel.

If you're going to make a sequel to something as beloved as "The Hustler," make sure you get a brilliant director to handle the project.

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 adequate fulcrum for getting Paul Newman his long-deserved Oscar. But everyone involved has been better.

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

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.

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

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 new version has a tension all its own.

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