A adequate fulcrum for getting Paul Newman his long-deserved Oscar. But everyone involved has been better.
| Original Score: 3/5

Gritty, weary and blue, it's a worthy successor to "The Hustler."

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.
| Original Score: 4/5

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.

Scorsese gets you inside the game in a way most sports movies never hint at.

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.
