Not only is it tedious and boring, just Brad Pitt and Andy Garcia shine in this heavily puffed up cast of all stars.

This script could have used another write or two before it was ready to be shot.

If you ever saw a heist film before, this one has nothing new to add.

There's a decent heist movie hidden under all that smarm but you have to dig pretty deep to unearth it.

What does it matter if Soderbergh's a far better craftsman than Tony Scott and his ilk when he's lost his soul?

A ho-hum heist film.

The kind of movie that makes you wish you were having as much fun watching it as they obviously had making it.

Despite a lot of snappy dialogue supplied by screenwriter Ted Griffin, Ocean's Eleven bogs down in technological minutiae, pointless set pieces that aren't very funny and by indulging the urge to constantly sell itself.

Despite dashes of droll dialogue from screenwriter Ted Griffin, the remake aims for cool but instead gets chilly.

The only time Soderbergh attempts anything borderline Hitchcockian, he literally runs out of battery power

I'm left feeling like I went to the All-Star Game and only got to see them shoot free-throws.

When all the cards have been turned over, nothing seems to be at stake in this movie...Has the feel of a put-on. It put me off.

A landfill of toxic star personas and auteur laziness.

It's merely OK, but it is completely watchable, and equally forgettable.

Ocean's Eleven forsakes moral complexity and simple heist-movie excitement.

If you've seen other heist/con movies, you won't find new twists or surprises here, and you'll have little other reason to see Ocean's Eleven than to go star-gazing.
