Editorial Reviews

Experience legendary actor Paul Newman in the role that earned him an Academy Award® (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!

If you care about this film at all, run away far and fast.

I was looking forward to picking this up on blu ray and couldn't be more disappointed in the picture quality of this disc.

I don't think I have ever seen a film look so bad on Blu-ray and this is a rarity for me.

I was looking forward to picking this up on blu ray and couldn't be more disappointed in the picture quality of this disc. Most disappointing blu ray disc purchase I've made to date. At no point do you think you're watching a high def movie.

This movie deserved a lot better treatment than this. I can't enjoy the blu ray because I'm constantly thinking how bad the picture looks. Disney has told me they will refund the money for this, I suggest anyone who feels like they got shortchanged buying this contact them.

Avoid this turkey of a HD transfer at all costs. That was rather poor quality 8 years ago, now it's shameless to sell this. No HD detail, no proper 35mm texture, no proper colour and shadow detail. Someone should tell Marty...

If you care about this film at all, run away far and fast. Somebody botched this disc so badly it almost has to be a mistake. It's an incredible shame
that a film that earned Paul Newman accolades and an Oscar, is among Scorsese's best, has an excellent performance by Tom Cruise gets this kind of treatment. Hopefully it will end up like Gladiator and Gangs of New York that somebody will acknowledge that this isn't what was approved and the real
intended Bluray will be released. Everybody knows about the John Carter debacle and how much money Disney probably will lose, but butchering a classic Live
Action film isn't the way to recoup either money or reputation. Multiple end-users and professional reviewers have been appalled at this attempt and
hopefully once Scorsese gets a copy he and his people will throw some weight behind getting this abomination fixed.

I only wish I could give this 0 stars or worse.

Terrible. I love this film but the presentation on this Blu Ray is probably one of the worst I've ever seen. Colors and blacks are blah. It's grainy as all hell, and any kind of depth and texture is just gone. It's an upscale of the original first run DVD that wasn't even 16x9 to begin with. No form of restoration went into this ever. Why is it a 25th Ann. edition when they did NOTHING to celebrate it's release excep press it on a new medium with a fancy blue box?

Avoid...unless you don't want to adjust your TV Zoom settings from the original DVD.

Marginally better video quality than dvd which was bad to begin with. Calling this an "anniversary edition" with 0 extra features to boot is a rip off.

Unfortunately, this blu-ray release is a very lackluster transfer from what is suppose to be a new master. It's better than the DVD version, but not noticeably so. If you have the DVD version already, then I'd honestly say that there isn't much of a point to upgrade to the blu-ray... or at the very least you should wait until the price drops some more, maybe in the sub $10 range. There are absolutely no extras on the disc, aside from "sneak peeks" of other movies, which I can never count as an extra. The movie itself is a great film and there's a reason why Newman earned himself an oscar for his role in it. I'm giving this release 2/5 stars predominately because the movie is great and is superbly acted, with an 'okay' transfer at the current price point. Would I have loved to see a better release? Of course. This movie definitely deserves to have a better HD presentation that I would pay for, but in its current iteration it's an 'acceptable' release if you like the movie or have seen The Hustler, where Newman's role as Fast Eddie Felson originated. If you don't already own The Color of Money, this blu-ray version is a worthwhile option (at the right price), just be aware that this transfer certainly isn't on par with a Criterion style release.

I don't have a lot to add to other recent reviews. Great movie, weak transfer. Detail is weak, colors are murky, and this looks like it was sourced from an old, worn out print. I have a hard time thinking that this film couldn't look better, based on the fact that Martin Scorsese directed it, and the director of photography obviously cared about their role...based on the amazing jib/crane shots alone. I just hope that a better print exists somewhere, and will make it to Blu-Ray someday.

On the bright side, there appears to be little DNR, and the image is free from other signs of age, such as scratches, etc.

For as much as I was impressed by the blu-ray of "Raising Arizona" (a film of similar vintage), I am equally dismayed by this transfer.

I absolutely love this movie and have seen it many times but always thought it needed a clean up and could use some supplemental features.

I rushed out to buy the Blu-ray edition on 05Jun2012 but alas I am still waiting for those changes. The visuals could still be more sharp. The disc is bare bones. It would have been interesting to point out the older real pool pros who were briefly in the cast for example and maybe something on the famous pool stick used.

It wasn't a waste of money to buy this edition at the right price but I expected more. I can hardly believe releasing this on Blu-Ray but not going further because the movie certainly deserves it.
