Hustle Have You Watched It Now?

Recommended Posts


Created by Tony Jordan and first broadcast in 2004, Hustle follows a group of con artists who spe****e in "long cons" – extended deceptions which require greater commitment, but which return a higher reward than simple confidence tricks. The direction of the piece is very new-wave with exciting camerawork and colourful cinematography. The director of "Hustle" has taken a very modern view and adaptation of great con and heist movies. Hustle has Adrian Lester, the supercool young black actor who watched John Travolta eat and screw in Primary Colors, as Mickey Stone, a Zen master of “the long con. And Robert Vaughn, a touch grayer but otherwise still Napoleon Solo, plays Mickey’s mentor Albert Stroller, a habitué of the hotels, casinos, and clubs where the likeliest marks are found. It is always a pleasure to witness Jordan’s excellent recreation of natural and flowing dialogue, though there did appear to be one exception with Robert Vaughn’s unconvincing “I know everything” line. With hip jazz infused music, elegant and suave art direction and scripts that crackle with wit, HUSTLE proves to be an entertaining instant hit. Hustle is a damn good show which is worth watching!
