Danny Ocean's team of criminals are back and are composing a plan more personal than ever. When ruthless casino owner Willy Bank double-crosses Reuben Tishkoff, causing a heart attack, Danny Ocean vows that him and his team will do anything to bring Willy Bank and everything he's got down. Even if it includes hiring help from one of their own enemies, Terry Benedict.
Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven mixed an old school heist story with a modern technology age where thinking outside of the box is a must. About as clever a plot has been this century until Nolan's Inception, the film had style, a top notch cast, and just that little bit of magic that can come when you put proper Hollywood star wattage into a production. Ocean's Twelve I must admit left me cold. It tried to take that magic and give it a European setting without success (for least for me), so when a third film was commissioned I was apprehensive as to what we'd get.
Ocean's Thirteen sees the gang back together again and back in Vegas. This time the…
For the third and last time, Danny Ocean calls in the help of his team to complete another heist. Getting down to the core of my review straight away: this time the heist itself - although not as imaginative and well-written as in the first film - is at least the core aspect of the story and planned carefully instead of suspended until the last minutes. In that department Steven Soderbergh tumps the previous instalment. What ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’, however, didn’t offer, and which Eleven did, is a plot in which the main players get to actually play. There is way too little Brad Pitt screen time and even the abundant amount of side characters that have been introduced over the…
Having rewatched all three of the Ocean's films within a short period of time (the last two within 24 hours of each other), I find myself puzzled by the second one. There's no doubt that the third movie is superior to its predecessor and that it captures some of the magic of the first film in the series. But what is different about that second movie? It is simply that the second movie was set in Europe, and that the Ocean movies work best when they take place in Las Vegas? Is it because the second movie was a little too self referential and impressed with its own cleverness?
I still maintain that the second movie isn't a bad movie,…
Hewing more closely to the first film without coming across as a lazy rehash and featuring a great new villain in Al Pacino, Ocean's Thirteen serves as a strong conclusion to Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy, still retaining the sharp dialogue, slick direction, great performances, snappy pacing, and awesome jazzy soundtrack.
όλες αυτές οι αντρικές-circa-esquire-1973 ρομαντζοϊστορίες για Αυτή Την Πόλη, και τον σινάτρα, και τη μεγάλη μπάζα, ε, τις στηρίζει το άτιμο, γιατί είναι όντως το πιο ρομαντικό από τα τρία. γιατί το κίνητρο δεν είναι ούτε τα λεφτά, ούτε μια γυναίκα- είναι ένας φίλος που προδόθηκε από εκείνον που δε σεβάστηκε τη Χειραψία Με Τον Σινάτρα, και που ήταν πιο αδίστακτος και ιερόσυλος από ό,τι η Αγάπη Για Το Παιχνίδι διατάζει. είναι διαποτισμένο με old versus new γλυκιά μελαγχολία το έργο, από τη μηχανή παντογνώστη του julian sands ("αναλογικοί παίχτες σε ψηφιακό κόσμο") μέχρι τον 'ξεπερασμένο' ρούμπεν που δίνει ώθηση στην ιστορία, και μέχρι τις μικρές στιγμές του brad και του george που δε χρειάζονται πάνω από δυο λόγια τη φορά για να μεταδώσουν αυτό που λέει κι αυτό που είναι η ταινία: το τελευταίο μεγάλο κόλπο, η τελευταία μεγάλη πλάκα δύο (τριών, δεκατριών) αγοριών που ξέρουν πως μεγαλώνουν.
Ocean's team is back in Vegas for yet another heist! This time, it's for revenge! The heist is smarter (relative to Twelve) but they cut down on the quirky/silly part. I'm not sure what I feel about that; what I'm sure about though is that Pacino's performance is magnificent. In fact, everyone involved in the Ocean's Trilogy is magnificent. I can't quite understand why are people complaining? To be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed myself throughout the series! Sure, Eleven is the best among them, but the other two are not as bad as everyone claimed it to be either.
Soderbergh is without a doubt an amazing filmmaker. Until now, I've still not come across a soderbergh film which I am not fond of. (I've never watched Magic Mike)
THE SOUNDTRACK IS STILL STUCK IN MY HEAD SEND HELP
After the disappointment from watching Twelve, I wanted to get Thirteen out of the way as quickly as possible, but as it turns out, the film I recalled being the weakest in the series impressed me. I love that this film spent the first 30 minutes slowly setting the scene for the heist, this time targeting a menacing Al Pacino who makes for a strong villain, something paramount in these films. Those early scenes with Clooney and Pitt brainstorming ideas with techno-guru Eddie Izzard (the 12th member in the last movie) were fascinating to watch and covered the six months of research the entire team put into their heist.
It was interesting because I’d never seen such a methodical intro…
Matt Damon is the MVP of the Oceans movies.
Yet again, a friday night with the guys and it does not get old at all. More of this, please!
After the disappointment that was "Ocean's Twelve" this film sees the gang return to Vegas for a final heist. This is, in my opinion, a solid film and a great conclusion to the Ocean's trilogy.
This one, unlike the second one, has a lot os similarities to "Ocean's Eleven", which is why I think it works better. However, I do think it borrowed too much from the original, to the point that it feels somewhat like a rehash of the original. In this one their target is another despicable casino owner, very similar to Terry Benedict and even their heist is very similar to the first one.
Still, this film managed to keep its charm. A sway direction, slick dialogue…
Uncle Mike and Vincent Mancini reunite for this highly entertaining return of Danny and the boys.
Matt Damon really shines this time.
If the greater attention given to its central heist is welcome after Twelve reduced all of its big heist sequences to throwaway bits and gags, the film feels sadly obligatory, a step backwards after its stranger, more playful, and more aesthetically interesting predecessor.
can't wait for an all-female version of this :-)
I liked some aspects of this movie but overall the first two are better.

matt damon said that he had a lot of movies that people just didn't go see so i'm seeing them
