The Sting is gambling movie known for its twists and turns, with both the excitement and danger levels in the film increasing along the way. The story focused on Johnny Hooker, a con man, and Henry Gondoff, with the duo looking to exact revenge on a ruthless crime boss. The crime boss, known as Doyle Lonnegan, loves gambling, and this opens the door for the pair to set their big con in motion.

The Hustler

The Hustler, just like The Sting, stars Paul Newman, and it’s another great addition to this list. Newman takes on the role of “Fast” Eddie Felson, a pool hustler with attitude. Felson’s aim is to make it to the top, which sees him head from one seedy venue to another, in the hope of being able to pit his skills against the legendary Minnesota Fats. However, a bad experience sees everything spiral out of control, and Felson turns to Bert Gordon to help rebuild his status.
