johnny cash (ex pool hustler), tries to unite with lost son he never knew he had
I found this to be a great movie. Being a huge pool fan I always find myself very upset with pool movies today. Not even a fan of the hustler, or color of money, which I did enjoy "The Baltimore Bullet" for it's fun.
This movie, though not being a big budget film and something actually from a Johnny Cash song (I'm not sure which come first the song or the movie). Is a really decent movie. It follows the lives of ex pool hustler played by Johnny Cash and a young pool hustler he finds out to be his son. It has a lot of drama that you could relate to Cash's real life, and has some of the most realistic pool games played out for a movie you will probably come by. The acting is decent and the writing is pretty much cookie cutter. But I give it an 8 for just being the best pool movie i've seen for realism on the pool table, and for the devotion the actors seemed to have for the part. They might not be the best, but at least they tried, and weren't there just trying to make more money than thou.
In a nut shell, if you're a Johnny Cash fan or a pool fan. Check this movie out, you won't be disappointed. Everyone else just expect a movie that isn't very good, and isn't very bad. Probably a forgettable movie for everyone else.
