Despite a couple of half-hearted, half-baked twists tossed in at the last minute, the story never feels fully fleshed.

designed to constantly evoke sparks and tension, particularly in its dry comedy, but nothing ever never quite catches

More fragmented than the original, but it's also slightly more substantial

All things considered, the fact that Ocean's 12 is merely confusing, instead of entirely indecipherable, is somehow rather impressive.

Ocean's Twelve isn't much better than its predecessor, but at least there's a more focused attempt to create something tangible.

Ocean's Twelve demeure un film sympathique et divertissant, mais sans plus et surtout pas au niveau du premier film.

Aren't these guys and gals just enjoying themselves on our dime and calling it a movie? Sure they are, but it works again.

Jeez, this seems like a lot of talent for such a so-so movie.

That Steven Soderbergh is able to make a borderline-engaging flick out of such a flimsy story is a sign of his skill.

It is funny, but not AS funny; it is surprising, but not AS surprising; it is good but not AS good.

Never taking a moment to look at itself without rose-coloured sunglasses, the film becomes a joke about Hollywood with no punchline.

This film's twelve times better than anything else on offer at the moment.

Much of the pleasure of this wily cinematic exercise is watching Soderbergh and his crew bury the complex plot line's points under what appear to be a willfully perverse series of in-jokes and such.

It defies a minimum critical standard: providing a framework for the jokes that at least makes sense.

Twelve may be nowhere near the level of its predecessor, but it still works as a great ball of fun.

The movie is nothing more than an escapist diversion . . . taking you to sunny climes, displaying pretty people having a blast doing what they do best . . .

Mocking and torturing Julia Roberts on screen is always fun. And the movie has a few other laughs as well.
