Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: A joy to see two masters (Scorsese and Newman) at ease with their work, and one, Cruise, in the making.
- Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Word is that Paul Newman gave Iggy Pop the cold shoulder during the filming.
- Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Lacking the urgency, dramatic momentum, and mood of the wonderful 1961 The Hustler, Scorsese's sequel is an enjoyable but ultimately disappointing sequel, and one of his most generic and least personal works.

Young Tom Cruise all giddy with smiles and a pool stick to do ninja wif. Newman is the movie who tries to shake off the rust from years out of the pool game since 1960's The Hustler, which was an interesting transition. Cool but not exciting.

If you liked The Hustler, you'll like this movie, it's pretty much the same movie. I found both of them boring. Sure they're hustlers and there's some drama in it, but watching people play pool for over an hour of the film isn't my cup of tea.

The first half of this movie oozes cool. The set up is so great because you know Fast Eddie and you are automatically hooked. Paul Newman is brilliant giving us another chapter in the life of a legendary character. And to see Tom Cruise in all his dumb guy, cocky asshole glory is fun to watch. And of course, it's directed masterfully by Marty in full on show off mode, pulling off shots and transitions with a flair that any Casino fan such as myself can appreciate. If you are going to be excessive (this movie screams eighties excess), at least you get to watch a guy like Scorsese blow his load and not feel jipped. My problem came in the later half of the movie where I really feel the film falls apart. The ending was head scratching and there were times where the music was irritating as hell. Great showings by the dependable Turturro and Whitaker, but I wish they would have focused more on the relationship between Newman and his woman.
