Danny Ocean reunites with his old flame and the rest of his merry band of thieves in a caper concerning three huge heists in Rome, Paris and Amsterdam. But Europol agent Isabel Lahiri is hot on their heels.
So this reminded me of that fat guy. You know, the one that orders the super size meals at McDonald's? And then asks for diet Coke?
A prime example of self-indulgence and delusional behaviour.
And after ordering he sits down somewhere perfectly content in his bubble of self induced bliss, clearly thinking he's having the time of his life.
And all we see is a fat guy with a smile on his face, wondering what the hell he's so happy about.
Elaborate theory why this movie is far better than most give it credit for at Criticwire - blogs.indiewire.com/criticwire/oceans-twelve-is-a-great-sequel
Yesterday evening I had a great time watching the first instalment in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean trilogy, prompting me to have a go at its sequel today and reserving enough time to watch the series’ final entry tomorrow (so look out for another heist-movie review on tuesday). When I look at the IMDB-page of ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ I notice that it’s regarded as the least acclaimed and also the film the longest runtime (by a small margin) of the three. Indeed, when I then also read through the synopsis - “Danny Ocean reunites with his old flame and the rest of his merry band of thieves in a caper concerning three huge heists in Rome, Paris and Amsterdam, but Europol agent Isabel…
The first Ocean's film had a charm that wasn't just down to the starry cast and a director with flair. A complex plot that gripped you from the very off and culminated in a few welcome surprises, it had a script as dazzling as the bright lights of Las Vegas. Bringing the star names together in a playful mix of elaborate heist and comedy brought the dollars rolling in, so as expected a sequel wasn't long in coming.
Ocean's Twelve however suffers from trying to be far too clever. Moving the story to Europe and the cities of Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, and Monte Carlo, seemed like a vacation for the same eleven protagonists from Soderbergh's 2001 original. This time however…
Ocean's Twelve's story is admittedly ludicrous, but its made fun due to the feeling that everyone involved is aware of that fact, and the film still manages to make for an enjoyable sequel, retaining the witty dialogue, smooth direction, and terrific performances that made its predecessor work so well.
thank you Casey Affleck for your generic mustache that makes you look slightly older then you sound
More like "Ocean's 6". 1/2 cast does nothing! #8wordsorless
Soderbergh tried to be super artsy.m and it came off as weird for such a big movie. Still hilarious.
Well directed and it looks terrific but the lazy plot feels like a cheat, which is especially annoying in a heist film, and the whole project comes across as smug.
Say what you will about Ocean's Twelve, but that's one cool-ass film. It's got it kinks alright, but it's so effortlessly cool I can't help but love it.
casey affleck: i wanna eat your whole head
I never get tired of watching this, be it that I was not really even concentrating on it. It just surprises me every time how Rusty Ryan can eat all the time.....What better way to spend one's Friday/Saturday night than with the Boys! The first of the series was the best one but this has its moments. Many of them.
i still can't believe they got julia roberts to play a character who plays julia roberts
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
So much star power and such little substance. The best thing that can be enjoyed here is the photography, locations, and the soundtrack selection. This film runs a good 15-20 minutes too long, fails miserably as a 'heist movie', but - as a comedy, is enjoyable if you can withstand its leisurely pace.
It was nice to see Pitt's Rusty get the love story this time around, and Catherine Zeta-Jones is as beautiful as any of the locations. Tess as Julia Roberts was a fun diversion. Matt Damon struggled to be amusing. Clooney could do no wrong except wasn't really given much to do. And Don Cheadle and Bernie Mac were completely wasted.
The script fails everyone here. The finale…
matt damon said that he had a lot of movies that people just didn't go see so i'm seeing them
