The Hustler Reviews
December 20, 2014
My grandfather always encouraged me to watch this movie, but I never got around to it. I finally did and I can see why he recommended it . Wished I'd watched it sooner so I could have told him how much I enjoyed it.

an Oscar worthy performance by Paul Newman at his early career :)

A tour-de-force classic, and possibly the only movie to make billiards cinematically interesting.

Such memorable performances from Ralph Kramden and the salad dressing guy.

One of those great boozy melodramas of the 50s and 60s - so much more than being about a pool hustler. Recommended for some late night atmosphere.

everyone should watch this

Wonderful cast sad and not as good as the book. That being said it is fantastic

powerful movie that hinges so solidly on Newman's wonderfully nuanced performance that one can almost be blind the incredible work of George C. Scott, Jackie Gleason and Piper Laurie. Nearly perfect.

boosted by a phenomenal performance from Newman in one of his iconic role, the hustler is a fantastic classic about morality and redemption, this is a must see for any movie buffs if not just for the exciting billards scenes and great performances

Paul Newman's performance is incredibly fun to watch despite how slow moving the plot is.

The highest rated movie in every aspect. The best Newman's performance. Never dying classic.

The game of pool is really secondary in this film to the story of the shark "Fast" Eddie Felson, a con-man who travels pool halls who meets his match in the legendary Minnesota Fats (played by Jackie Gleason). Newman's portrayal as the anti-hero Felson remains one of his greatest performances. Piper Laurie is superb in her role as one of the dames that you imagine Felson has met up and down the road many times, but her appearance complicates matters for Eddie. Beautifully shot in black and white, this is a character piece more than a sports movie and should definitely be worth your time.

great movie the only problem is that it drags a bit at the romance sections

The performances of Gleason and Newman, not to Mention Piper Laurie and George C. Scott, are what makes the Hustler what it is, namely a film that is more about morality than it is about shooting pool.

Featuring commanding performances from all the stars and a great script, The Hustler is a genuine American classic. Watch out for Jake LaMotta's cameo too.

The Hustler is a murky, ethically multi-layered story of revitalization, with entire sequences that feel so real and performances that have become the stuff of legend.

Aparentemente parece apenas um filme simples sobre sinuca, mas com horas de jogo e boas doses de whisky, percebemos que se trata de um fascinante estudo de personagens! Scott, Gleason e Newman estão simplesmente perfeitos em cena.

A cynical and bitter examination of human nature with excellent performances (particularly from George C Scott as the cold, vulture-like Bert) and spectacular black and white wide screen shots of the pool halls in which the film is predominantly set.
