OCEAN'S ELEVEN

 

 

This is a popcorn movie for pure enjoyment. Plain and simple don't think about it too much, it'll just ruin it for you.

The cast members and their performances are strong. The fun of Ocean's Eleven is the smart dialogue and great pace.

It begins slowly but the Mission Impossible-style break-in is terrific.

I enjoyed the way it captured the Las Vegas strip with all the colors in and outside the casinos. Just a good way to visit Vegas without loosing your shirt.

Ocean's Eleven is a flat, faceless heist film lacking both personality and chemistry (except for George Clooney).

Although deftly directed by Steven Soderbergh, it's missing the camaraderie that made the original so memorable.

Yes, there are lots of recognizable faces, but without substance and credibility, they too become as average and soulless as this remake.

Ocean's Eleven is a fast and furious heist movie that has plenty of star power to keep your interest engaged.

I liked the way the director skillfully mastered the art of making the impossible casino robbery look easy and the way he gives the action a boost by revealing the details of the plan only as it unfolds right in front of us.

He also stages some of the most flowing, complicated tricks ever seen in a stickup artist film.
