Agree with the above; it's a decent movie. Watched it last night. The kid is a terrible actor.

I actually enjoyed the movie even though it was mediocre to say the least.
Very surprising that there were some recognizable actors and how bad that kid was at acting.
How do movies like this even get funded???!!!

I saw it last night. I was not impressed. The acting was bad, especially that unknown kid. His uncle had to have some major part in the production. It's really not a pool movie in the vein of the Hustler and COM. Pool is more in the background of this story. It looks like somebody's first attempt at making a movie intended upon being released to theaters. The only thing I personally liked about the movie is that it was filmed in south Louisiana and I recognized about 50% of the scenery and locations. Oh, and the accents were way off. Typical for Hollywood.

Pretty cool that an AZB forum member consulted on a recent pool movie.
If memory serves, I believe it was filmed in JoeyA's home area and pool room(s), so he was a known entity there.

JoeyA is indeed one of the good guys, somebody that still really understands words like honor. A man I am proud to call friend, not just pool room acquaintance. You fit that description yourself. Nice to know people you don't have to watch your back around!

I saw the trailer and I thought of Omar Sharif and Bruce Boxleitner facing off in Baltimore Bullet.
They weren’t father and son in the film but the equivalent mentoring & older/younger connection.
I hold out little hope for the film based on seeing the trailer so don’t get your hopes up it’s a hit.

Not the Color of Money but its got pool in it.

Anyone watch it yet?
I'm watching cornhole on ESPN and could care less about Walkaway Joe. Cornhold has all the excitement I need during these days of isolation. I love the sound of bean bags hitting painted particle board and the possiblity of watch country boys trying to cornhole each other in front of a camera.

I watched it. I enjoyed it. It's a sentimental father/son drama, with pool as a vehicle to carry the story. It's not about pool. If it's pool you want, watch a tournament. If you think you might like a movie about strained father/son/family relationships with just a splash of action, this is a good movie.

Spoiler:
Jefferey Dean Morgan's cue is not wrapped with barbed wire.

Dallas did not have his cue when he returned home.

Was that a message?

Walkaway is right. That movie was brutally hard to finish.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?
