Critic Reviews for Ocean's Eleven

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (5)

Laboring under the handicaps of a contrived script, an uncertain approach and personalities in essence playing themselves, the production never quite makes its point, but romps along merrily unconcerned that it doesn't.

Terminally boring.

The heist itself, though, is a superb piece of movie-making.

Young people are likely to find this more appropriate and bewitching than do their elders. The latter are likely to feel less gleeful in the presence of heroes who rob and steal.

Audience Reviews for Ocean's Eleven


Oceans 11 always is a fun thing to watch, its one of those movies that make us love going to the cinema.

Jim Careter

Super Reviewer

Whilst I did watch this the wrong way around, ie. The remake before the original, I was pleasantly surprised with the differences between the two. Whilst the main plot sort of remains the same, this version does give you songs from the Rat pack and managed to give a surprise ending differing from that of the remake. Both were cleverly crafted to suit the era of the heist and the technology surrounding it, whilst using the individual skills of the crew.

One of the few cases when the remake is much better.
