Critic Reviews of "The Color of Money"Chicago TribuneFebruary 06, 2017
The premise might sound interesting, but the plotting is so utterly predictable that The Color of Money turns into a pool-room variation of The Karate Kid.Chicago TribuneFebruary 06, 2017
It is a surprise, and a disappointment.Orlando SentinelFebruary 06, 2017
Though this is clearly Newman's picture, Tom Cruise also is a joy to watch.TIME MagazineAugust 01, 2008
We are not on Rocky's side of the street, but in Martin Scorsese country, where bent character, not sentiment, shapes destiny, and the best the struggling human spirit can hope for is a split decision.VarietyMarch 26, 2007
Pic has a distinctive pulse of its own with exceptional performances by Paul Newman and Tom Cruise.Chicago ReaderMarch 26, 2007
A solidly crafted entertainment that, for the most part, strikes a successful balance between commercial necessity and personal expression.FlavorwireApril 08, 2017
Yes, sure, this is mid-level Scorsese. But it says something about the director that his mid-level work still beats the hell out of just about anyone else's best.Radio TimesFebruary 06, 2017
The confrontational climax never quite convinces, but Richard Price's knockout script is one to treasure and director Martin Scorsese brings his trademark visual style to bear on the production.People MagazineFebruary 06, 2017
Scorsese is peerless at mining the streaks of courage and excellence that might redeem such low-life sleaze. And Scorsese again proves himself a master with actors.Seanax.comDecember 15, 2016
[Scorsese] delivers the cinematic charge of the pool room culture of hustle and gamesmanship along with the education of a young protégé lacking self and a mentor who has yet to face his own conflicted feelings about the game.Antagony & EcstasyOctober 25, 2014
There's nothing [Martin Scorsese] made so achingly generic and impersonal as this.Movie MetropolisJune 30, 2012
It's entertaining and at times even insightful, but nowhere near as powerful-or memorable-as "The Hustler."
