Movie Info

A rag-tag group of con artists and ex-cons team up for the heist to end all heists in this high-profile remake of the 1960 Rat Pack favorite. As with its predecessor, Ocean's Eleven opens with its titular hero Danny Ocean (George Clooney stepping into the Frank Sinatra role) eager for a new challenge. The similarities to the original end there, as Ocean conspires with his old pal Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) to rob 150 million dollars from an underground vault that serves three of Las Vegas' biggest

A lark for everybody concerned, including the audience.

This wholly enjoyable entertainment sees Soderbergh setting himself a new challenge - the hi-tech robbery procedural - and relishing the clichés even as he freshens them with a dab of polish, wit, pace and a light touch of irony.

It can, at times, be forgettable in a fun way, especially when its funniest performers are caught in Soderbergh's spinning crosshairs.

Soderbergh's most commercial film to date is a star-driven, semi-successful, slightly better remake of the 1960 origianl feature.

A perfect example of smart, fun mainstream entertainment. David Holmes' mod-jazz score pulses with pep, and even with the star power, Steven Soderbergh makes room for winning supporting turns from Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin and Carl Reiner.

Soderbergh and Griffin concoct a doozy of a robbery, seemingly impossible with a new hitch around every corner. The cast, headed by Clooney, never loses its cool and never gives away a surprise beforehand.

A fast paced, enjoyable flick, stylishly filmed, filled with great, or at least well-known actors, that doesn't disappoint, but doesn't make a lasting impression either.

We're not talking about reinventing the genre here. This is just a Big Mac and fries of a movie, and those movies, like the food, can hit the spot sometimes, especially when you're hung over.

L'humour est raffiné et subtil, le scénario est bien construit et rempli d'invraisemblances que l'on ne prend jamais au sérieux.

It's more of a novelty item than a film, really, and most of the fun comes from seeing just about all of Hollywood's most well-known faces show up in the span of two hours.

All the principals (and the director, for that matter) are doing work they could do in their sleep, resulting in an eminently watchable film built on a very run-of-the-mill story.

Audience Reviews for Ocean's Eleven

A rarity--a remake that's better than the original. 11 men led by Danny Ocean (George Clooney) prepare to rob a vault linked to 3 casinos in Las Vegas. His partners in crime include Brad Pitt, Carl Reiner, Elliot Gould, Casey Affleck, Matt Damon and Scott Caan. Also, the casinos are owned by Tery Benedict (Andy Garcia) who is romancing Ocean's ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts). Fun, engrossing, just simply the most enjoyable film of 2001. It moves smoothly, the entire cast plays it cool and easy and Steven Soderbergh directs it with flair and intelligence. Yes, it's light; yes, it's a trifle but it's so FUN! I really loved this film. Affleck and Caan are hilarious as bickering brothers. My only complaint--Julia Roberts (the only woman in the cast) is shot very cruelly. She's beautiful so why does she look so bad? Aside from that this is a fun movie. Just sit back and enjoy. 3 1/2 stars Updated from 9-27-07

Movie about a group of guys who rob three Las Vegas casinos in one night. My fave scenes are when George explains the plan to the guys and when he forgets the batteries for the remote. Brad, George and Andy are hot! The cast are great, the plot and the twist at the end are all brilliant.

George Clooney's portrayal of the famed Danny Ocean fits well with the adaptation of the remake to a modern-day Vegas-based heist film. The colorful cast including Damon, Pitt, Cheadle, Mac & Roberts. Ocean's Eleven plays well with it's own time and environment. 4/5

I may be overlooking something here, but everything just seems entirely smooth with this film. As Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is released from prison, he assembles a team of eleven people to rob three of the most profitable casinos in all of Las Vegas. The plot is huge and the payoff will be gigantic. They are in the running for over 163 million dollars. The cast is brilliant and the writing is superb. Sure there may be some annoying edits throughout the film and there will be some noticeable stumbles during the robbery, but "Ocean's Eleven" delivers on everything. When the film ended, I applauded it for making me believe that I was watching more than just another heist film. This film is terrific!
