It scratched on the break.
27 November 2005 | by Donovan1See all my reviews

I love billiard movies. But when reviewing them, I don't feel it is fair to any film to compare them to the flicks of the past. With that said...

Behind The Nine is film about an underground 9-Ball tournament that pays $500,000 to the winner. This drama/suspense/comedy story is slow. It feels like the movie was 2 hours when it is only 1:18 long. The plot twists are sporadic at best and try to be ironic. It really never achieves the true goal of surprising you. The acting is bad. The one-liners are not delivered well. The dialog is choppy and doesn't flow well from one character to the next. The pool table and shot scenes are as bad as it can get. There are many continuity screw-ups during the games, like shooting balls numbers out of order, the sound of the last ball hitting other balls during a miss, or even showing the exact same shot or break more than once. All of this really can disrupt the flow of the film.

However, the scene/screen interruptions/notations are entertaining. The camera angles and the shooting seemed well done. If you are a pool player, I suppose you will have to see this, just to say you have. Otherwise, as much as I wanted to like this flick, I can't really feel OK about recommending it to anyone.
