Is this the one where they travel around, carry their cues under their jackets like guns? The poolrooms are real dirty and people get shot or fingers cut off or something like that when they lose?

sounds like the tactics we use when a member of my pool team loses /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I've seen it and it is on imdb.com. It is NZ but certainly not 91? More like '01?! Saw it a few months ago on rented DVD.

Thought about buying it since I can't rent it from where i'm at. Curious, did ya like it? Ie: A fun movie that when your finished wanted you to play pool and play pool to the extreme.

Well it was a young guys flick ("gang" stuff, wisecracking humor... similar to "Lock, stock and to two smoking barrels" and such tongue-in-cheek humorous Tarantinosque flicks)... like so often with pool films, I was tad disappointed with the actual pool content.

It was more fun than Pool hall junkies, but not as serious or (maybe) well made film.

The only pool movies I watched several times are... still... The Hustler and COM. And they still remain the benchmark for me. The two newer flicks finish second to those (and are on par with Baltimore Bullet, perhaps). But both are way better than so many other pool movies...

I was actually thinking of getting those two new pool movies on DVD too (10 a piece), but then realized they just came out on rental video here. This was in Nov. last year. (And I live in Europe).
