A drama surrounding a group of pool players as they try to advance up the rankings in their pool hall. There are multiple simultaneous stories, that show how the stress and anxiety of high stakes gambling can make or break you.
Trick is among five hostages trapped together, paralyzed from the neck down. While an FBI agent and former detective race against the clock to find their location, the group tries to figure a way out before their promised execution.
Robert Allen Mukes,
Gail had her tenth birthday party tonight, but her Dad was not there. She loves her dad, and he loves her. He had told her he was bringing her a special present, so why was he so late? Gail thought she knew what the present was; it must be that special custom pool cue she had wanted. Dad must have stopped to pick it up on his way home from work; maybe he stopped at Vicky's billiards to shoot a few games of 9-ball and lost track of time? Gail looks at the posters of the great women pool champions on her wall, Dorothy Wise and Jean Balukas and smiles. A screech of tires outside shakes Gail's attention to the street. As Gail quickly opens her window, she sees a car speed up and stop next to her Dad, as he staggers up the street holding a long package under his arm. Gail waves to her Dad, he smiles, waves back, and blows her a kiss. A man jumps out of the car, runs up to Gail's Dad and stabs him in the chest and yells in his face "Dirty dogs must die!"

This pool movie is exhilarating and keeps you on the edge of your seat! The cast line up has real-life female Professional Pool Players as well as pool fans and current national APA Players. I love that I can watch a film with actual pros in it...that play the sport on ESPN today. A couple of the female professionals are: Allison Fisher, Jeanette Lee and lead character, Jennifer Barretta. Being a regular pool player myself, I'm thrilled to see this film come out and represent the sport! So many people from all across the globe, have either played pool at some point in their life or a family member has a pool table in their home...either way, the game of pool is everywhere and now we get to see it in this next popular billiard movie, "9-Ball"! I read on Facebook the movie had been released on DVD for purchase on www.mainstreetproductions.com. I wanted to share that with everyone because this is where I purchased mine as well as some of my friends and family. 9-Ball is a great addition to your movie/DVD collection. If you love pool or enjoy watching others in the game - you must see this movie! I told all my local pool league players about it and now they're all wanting to see it. Great job to all the good actors in the film! The uncle and boyfriend played amazing parts!!! I'm sure this movie will be a hit in the U.S. but also internationally -- since billiards is so popular overseas as well. Good luck!!!
