Should Ocean's 8 be slickly typical or typically slick? It instead falls lickity split in the middle, a heist movie with half-baked ideas and not enough of its own agenda.

The film tries to cover the logic gaps with comedy, but the jokes are so bad they somehow worsen the experience. [Full review in Spanish]

The missed opportunity is what's frustrating the most. It could have been a fabulous movie.

I thought the movie really missed the mark.

The devil is in the trying too hard. The other installments in the Ocean's franchise were a light mix of crime, glamour, and self-aware humor.
October 17, 2019
"Ocean's 8", on far too many levels, really misses the mark.
July 18, 2019
To paraphrase Julie Andrews (and maybe Emily Blunt?) as Mary Poppins, Debbie's plan is practically perfect in every way -- which helps explain why the movie is anything but.
July 17, 2019
It is entertaining and its protagonists are very inspired in their roles, but it lacks something that defines it as an individual entity beyond its female cast. [Full Review in Spanish]

A bland story can give only so much wiggle room even when you have Oscar-winning stars leading the film. Watch it once, or wait for streaming or Blu- Ray's to come out. You are not missing much.

But all the glitz and glamour can't replace a good script--derivative, a combo of Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve--or an engaging story.
March 20, 2019
While the all-star cast is the best thing going for it, the film lacks the energy, style and overall sense of cinematic fun offered up by even the least of the Clooney-led "originals."
February 28, 2019
The setup is a bit of a slog and the score doesn't work.
February 2, 2019
There is never a moment when the movie allows us to forget its regressive expectations about women want, or what they should be.
November 25, 2018
It wasn't a total waste of an evening. mind you -- I got frozen custard with *two* toppings afterwards!

Ross' exploration into the "Ocean" universe, particularly with heavy hitters such as Bullock featured at the helm, should have been more engaging and penetrating.
November 5, 2018
Ocean's Eight (is) a female-led heist spinoff of the classic Ocean's Eleven trilogy that tries, and largely fails, to pass for the real thing.
October 31, 2018
A slapdash heist caper with an enjoyable breeziness but a frustrating lack of suspense.
October 17, 2018
You probably won't regret seeing Ocean's 8 -- because you won't have any feelings about it at all.
October 10, 2018
The film operates in safe-mode, nothing risqué or adventurous, but a heist film must have some sense of danger and these ladies make it look way too easy.
October 10, 2018
Ocean's 8 boasts a solid cast, but lacks a coherent script to balance their charm.
