The posters in this list, that's what. Rules: black and white photo, with the title in red. Suggestions?
Twelve is the new eleven.
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
Just as fun as the first film, even if it gets a bit ludicrous at times. The way I see it, this is a sequel, it is supposed to be a bit ludicrous.
pretty much 100% shtick, Soderbergh included. but whatever, i'm the guy that has nice things to say about LETHAL WEAPON 3. plot here kinda lifted from TOPKAPI, vibe kinda lifted from THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR.
So basically, a sequel for the sake of having a sequel. This does not have half the charm as the first, and it is much more difficult to follow. The great thing about the first film is it is a heist that is easy to follow along with and is easily explained. From the opening of the film it just felt lazy and there didn't seem to be a good reason for Benedict to have found the 11. We are also introduced to way to many new characters here that i have no interest in. The worst part of this is, by far the Julia Roberts look-a-like sequence with Bruce Willis. I found myself laughing, not because it was funny,…
Nothing more than a smug vanity project that had big enough balls to open a door to another sequel. Avoid.
I think I've seen this film before but I don't remember much about this. A bit more complicated and coincidental than the first one, which really makes you doubt the possibility. Also this whole thief world seems really small too. Mostly watched this to see all the familiar faces.
All style no substance, and I mean *literally* no substance. Soderbergh is an intelligent guy, and I wouldn't be surprised if he fully intended to make a connection between making a sequel and reuniting a group for another heist, but I can't help but ask...so what? Why should that mean that we immediately forgive the plot for its relentless shallowness and idiocy, things which, incidentally, can't so easily be papered over by flashy camerawork and dynamic musical cues? People make a lot about the silliness of the Julia Roberts subplot, but that's nothing compared to the tediously predictable resolution to the question of who Catherine Zeta-Jones' father is, or everything to do with the fact that the film's supposedly showstopping…
Like the characters the film depicts, this film is essentially one big confidence trick. Yes, it's a load of cobblers, but there's enough star power and sleights of hands to deceive into thinking it's actually not too bad.
Very disappointed. I enjoyed the fun of the first film and while this film did retain a good portion of that it lost most of its plot sensibility. Totally disjointed. Characters don't make sense neither do their actions. in fact the whole purpose of this new story doesn't make sense. Why would they just automatically be like oh i guess we have to get all that money back and give it to the d bag we stole it from in the first movie. Oh well all for nothing right.
to me the most underrated part of the trilogy.
Without Vegas, the ride's a bit slower.
A messy, confusing and humourless film compared to Eleven with moments of humour.
"You tell us how you did first, then we'll call you the best after."
Revisiting the gang from Ocean's Eleven isn't charmless, but it's not exactly a treat. Casey Affleck and Scott Caan are personally the only truly salvageable characters from this entire series- their brotherly bickering and competition could fill an entire film of their own. Matt Damon as the insecure, inexperienced son of thieves actually took much of his character and made the far superior "The Informant". Twelve is the weakest of the Ocean's series and for good reason. Its ambition seems to cover the whole of Italy, the double crosses and intrigue amongst con-men is rudderless and sloppy, and the entire affair is basically scrapped by a…
