Ocean of frothBy klauski from west sussex , 06 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Probably not a lot of point in criticising this one, but I found it a lukewarm version of "Mission Impossible", with some very annoying macho characters.
Maybe Sinatra and his boozy, misogynistic rat pack companions were the height of cool when the original was made over 50 years ago, but times have (thankfully) changed.
Julia Roberts - referred to at one point as another character's "worldly goods" or some such - cannot alone compensate for the bloke-ish posturing of the over-rated Brad Pitt.
And what's more, it's really boring.
Think I'll give Ocean's 12 a miss.

Brief synopsis/teaser and commentBy FestiveLady (28 reviews) from Northumberland, England , 24 Oct 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideWith the aid of fellow-con artists and thieves, Danny Ocean decides to steal mega-millions from the casinos of the man who stole his wife (now ex-wife). Fair trade? No, Danny also wants to win her back. But the vault has impossible-to-break security, and his ex-wife doesn't want to see him. Will he be able to manage to win either one of his objectives? And what happens when he has to choose between them?
2001 re-make of the 1960 film starring Frank Sinatra.
Enjoyable but not very memorable.
Eleven in the heist gang is too many, so scant air time is given to each and thus characters project no depth. But the film can be enjoyed instead for its glamorous casino set, and watching the conflict between Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) and Danny Ocean (George Clooney). The heist plan is clever, like a locked room mystery mixed with 'The Sting' and a long episode of 'Mission: Impossible'. (Some plot twists are predictable, but don't give up - there's plenty.) The film really only takes off once the heist starts as, to keep to the gang's timetable, it requires pace.
Post-heist scenes are too drawn out, and the film ends rather flat. It'd been snappier if it had ended sooner, on one of the high moments.
briliant as usualBy a customer from norfolk england. , 18 Oct 2009george is brilliant as usual as is the rest of the cast great twist to this film.
allanBy a customer from Paisley , 15 Jul 2009good film exallent pohotographiy
A ClassicBy a customer from Edinburgh , 05 Jun 2009If you liked 'The Bank Job' (Saffron Burrows) or 'The Italian Job' (Charlize Theron) then you'll like this. Same basic idea - high-profile suave thieves robbing a high-profile establishment. I only gave it 4/5 because George Clooney's smugness annoys me.
