  • Critic Reviews of "The Color of Money"

    Chicago Tribune

    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.

    It is a surprise, and a disappointment.

    Orlando Sentinel

    Though this is clearly Newman's picture, Tom Cruise also is a joy to watch.

    TIME Magazine

    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.

    March 26, 2007

    Pic has a distinctive pulse of its own with exceptional performances by Paul Newman and Tom Cruise.

    A solidly crafted entertainment that, for the most part, strikes a successful balance between commercial necessity and personal expression.

    April 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.

    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 Magazine
    February 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.

    December 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 & Ecstasy
    October 25, 2014

    There's nothing [Martin Scorsese] made so achingly generic and impersonal as this.

    Movie Metropolis
    June 30, 2012

    It's entertaining and at times even insightful, but nowhere near as powerful-or memorable-as "The Hustler."
