Ocean's Eleven Reviews
"It'll be nice working with proper villains again."
"Guys, guys, look! All....reds!"
"Ten oughta do it, right? (Pause for answer that never comes) You think we need one more? (Pause for answer that never comes) You think we need one more. (Pause for answer that never comes) Alright, we'll get one more."
"They also PAINTED occasionally."
"Does he make you laugh?" "He doesn't make me cry."
Weaknesses: Parts of the movie seem to drag and it ultimately ends up feeling like it lasts longer than two hours. I also couldn't get into the Tess (Julia Roberts) character. I completely understood her point in the film and she's a big driving force behind Danny's plan. I just never felt any real connection or chemistry with her and Clooney. Also, while it makes sense for her to leave Terry after hearing what he said, she goes back to Danny, which feels out of character. It doesn't seem like Danny does enough to be deserving of that kind of redemption from his jilted ex.
Overall: This is just such a cool movie. Almost all the characters are enjoyable in some form, they're stylish and witty, making for a good time. The heist itself is cool and the setup for it is great. Throw in some great acting, writing, and directing and you've got a winner.
At any rate though, that is beside the point, since I am only supposed to be rating this one. So I will just get on with my review.
First of all I really enjoyed this one, I thought it was extremely fun and entertaining, easily the best film in the Ocean's series.
But outside of the following three things: (the formation of the team, the set up, and the impending arrival of the big heist), there isn't really that much to offer.
