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!

1.0 out of 5 stars HD Picture? June 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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.

This movie appears to be about pool on the surface. But it's less about pool than it is about what motivates us as people.

Fast Eddie Felson of the classic, "The Hustler," returns to reverse roles in this 80s classic. Instead of being the young champ, he wants to train the young champ in Tom Cruise. But eventually, he realizes the hard way he doesn't have the stomach to play stake horse and in his heart he really wants the thrill of competition.

A lot of people will compare this movie to "The Hustler," since it is the sequel. There is no comparison. This movie really can't even be compared in pool terms. The pool shots that they hit in this movie are, for the most part, average to above-average. This is not the mind blowing pool play from "The Hustler" to be sure.

But this movie does have plenty going for it. For non-pool players, this movie has more character development. This movie also features some of the greatest cinematography of any film. And Newman, Cruise, and the supporting cast all put in stellar performances.

In short, this is a great movie that's worth watching just for enjoyment or on a deeper level for those who appreciate fine cinema. It's not half the movie that "The Hustler" is, but it has enough merits to stand on its own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crap HD transfer June 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars New Bluray Video Butchered. June 9, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Money, Luck and Our Lady of the Cue Balls. May 27, 2004
Format:DVD
In this movie's opening voiceover, director Martin Scorsese explains that nine-ball pool, as you've probably guessed, comes down to one basic rule: You don't win without pocketing the 9. Partially this depends on the balls' spread in the break; i.e. on luck. But, Scorsese concludes with the credo of all high-stakes hustlers from poker to pool and beyond: "For some players, luck itself is an art."

Once, Fast Eddie Felson (Paul Newman) mastered this art; a whiz kid out to beat champion Minnesota Fats, he had to learn some painful lessons instead. But that was 25 years ago - in 1961's "Hustler," to which "The Color of Money" is a belated sequel - and now it's "dead and buried." Now Eddie is a liquor salesman; even if he's still got the hustle down cold: just listen to him philosophizing about a bourbon's color, age and acidic content and I'll lay you any bet you'll be buying a case from him in no time at all.

Yet, Eddie keeps hanging around pool halls, and one day the inevitable happens: He runs into Vincent (Tom Cruise), almost a reincarnation of his younger self; a guy with a sledgehammer break and an "incredible flake," as Eddie opines less than charitably, cocky beyond belief but apparently unaware of his potential, preferring to perfect his video game reflexes on the theory that this might get him into West Point, instead of focusing on his greatest and, more importantly, only financially viable area of expertise: pool. Now, if Eddie has learned one thing it's that whatever your field, it *all* comes down to money; and the guy who's got the most of it is the best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Blu-Ray for an awesome movie June 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

What could have been a very average Tom Cruz as flashy up and comer is saved by Paul Newman's performance. Stuart Whitacor is outstanding as usual.
