Wrongly dismissed by many as a slick, soulless enterprise, this belated sequel to the seedy billiards classic The Hustler benefits from an earthy screenplay by the great Richard Price (The Night Of) and a trio of fine performances—Cruise was criticized for showboating, but that’s the character, people. He’s an arrogant prick with a million-dollar break.
