    Poolhall Junkies - 02/28



    From Hollywood.com


    Synopsis: Obsessed by the world of pool, Johnny could be one of the best. But his mentor and "trainer" Joe, a shady hustler who decides how and who Johnny plays, is holding him back from his dream. When the day finally comes, Johnny breaks from Joe. This leads to only one thing--violence. Joe is beaten up by some of Johnny's buddies as a sign to leave him alone, and with this final act of freedom Johnny leaves the world of pool-sharking. However, Joe is hell-bent on seeking revenge for the beating he took, and he soon finds a new protégé, Brad, who is just as good--if not better than Johnny. The two are pit against each other in a "race to nine" showdown that ends up in a high-stakes game of pool for large sums of money, respect, and more importantly--Johnny and his brother Danny's life.

    Some good actors in this one, but the subject matter doesn't really appeal to me.

    Since one of my all-time favorites is "The Color of Money", I'm glad they've gotten around to another poolhall movie.

    Hm.. a movie about pool and pool-shring doesn't sound to exciting to me. .
