    First of all, Freddie Prinze, Jr? That’s odd. Until today I hadn’t seen him in a movie that I’d enjoyed completely. Scratch that. I still haven’t.

    The deeper the plot got, the more confused I became. I’m not a simplton, either. I honestly don’t know why half the people that died, died.

    It’s also harder to give a movie more than three stars on a review when a key line in the movie is, “If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’.” Why not just make it, “What’s up doc?” or even “That’s what she said.” Those are sadly more amusing.

    The random sex scene was also annoying. “I just got the fool beat out of me … again. Wanna mess around?” It didn’t flow. The only thing more enjoyable than counting the times Jericho (Prinze) got the fool beat out of him were the very very few twists in the plot.

    Don’t buy this movie. Rent it from Blockbuster if you have a movie pass and you’ve already seen what else is out there.

    its about the photography, January 15, 2006
    This review is from: Shooting Gallery (DVD)

    the movie plot is quite common (I mean you see many such plots) – some con artist trying to con others in a pool gallery and some intricat plot which invloves other pool players, hustlers and strong men – of coarse few cops. This is all very common but what is uncommon is the quality of photography and back ground music. Cinematography is superlative – all frames are complete – lighting is fabulous – can compare it to Sincity. Now a days in the world of computer generated movies it is difficult to find such photography. You will notice that the editing is also great and matches with the phography – some the trick shots in the pool table are great. Good entertaining movie. You can rent it.

    A lot of people give this movie crap and say it gives “pool a bad name”. Movies such as the “Hustler”, “Color of Money”, and “Poolhall Junkies” though good in their own respects have long since given pool and pool players a bad rep as macho, greedy, pigheads who play a great game but are stupid when it comes to other aspects of life. SG has made it no better or worse than the other films have.

    Saying that, this is a revenge story set in a poolhall. I’m sure poker players everywhere would be spewing the same mindless battle cry “It gives us a bad name” if this movie took place over a poker table. People fail to see that and are too concerned whether or not this film gives who a bad name.

    Cinematography is excellent. Acting is decent. Some nice pool action. Not the greatest pool film ever but certainly not as bad as people would like you to believe.
