CRITICS OF "Poolhall Junkies"

St. Paul Pioneer Press

When Christopher Walken saunters into Poolhall Junkies, he kicks it from so-so to worthwhile.

Whatever you want to say about this Mars Callaghan -- who is an avid cue-man in real life -- he would seem to be able to sink anything. Darned if he doesn't make this whole movie disappear.

Though there's not much in Poolhall Junkies we haven't seen many times before, the film manages to remain mostly entertaining due mostly to some surprisingly effective performances and a brisk pace.

This film coulda been a contender if Callahan hadn't worn so many hats -- but it has moments that make it worth waiting for on video.

If you saw this film, then you were hustled.

Reno Gazette-Journal

September 26, 2003

The fast-paced picture sizzles with energy, and it's a tour de force for Mars Callahan, who co-wrote and directed.

This brash little indie is oddly endearing and fun to be around.

[A]ll of it just seems so familiar and so trite, we know exactly where this is going.

Las Vegas Weekly

September 07, 2003

With a better lead and more inspired direction, Poolhall Junkies might have been decent entertainment. But Callahan the actor is the biggest liability in Callahan the director's film.

Globe and Mail

March 21, 2003

As a director, Callahan wants the verve that Martin Scorsese brought to The Color of Money, but his visual approach is careless, relying too much on clichéd slo-mo and hasty edits.

A lowlife billiards drama that lacks the drive and edginess of the classic The Hustler, Poolhall Junkies does get by on its humor, energy and earnest charm.

Newsday

February 28, 2003

90 minutes of slow-leaking, macho stomach gas, in which everyone talks like they were on brawny pills and every tawdry song on the soundtrack makes you feel as if you were trapped in a lap dance club.
