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.

An entertaining witty, funny, and well acted piece of comedy heist.

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.

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.

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.

Soderbergh continues the roll that he's been on ...

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.

Vegas heist flick with style, charm and an ensemble cast of the coolest cats in town makes it safe for grown-ups to enter the theater again.

Stylish remake of an iconic-if-not-very-good original film, with a to-die-for cast, a great soundtrack and healthy measure of 'cool' -- it drags in places but is fun to watch.

Give yourself a break from the holiday rush and thinking about politics. You won't regret it.

What a fun crowd director Steven Soderbergh put together.
