When a movie keeps you this entertained without insulting your intelligence, it's hard to complain.

It's a great looking movie.
June 13, 2007
Flat, abstruse, predictable and unable to raise your pulse rate higher than a blip on an EKG.
June 9, 2007
You get what you came for, namely the usual suspects breezily hamming it up and a lot of forgettable banter going down incredibly easily.

An entertaining night out at the movies. Have some popcorn.
June 8, 2007
Though it takes a little while before it really takes off, this slick bauble of a movie qualifies as the best of the summer 'threequels" -- at least thus far.

An exercise in stylish bravado that is as substantial as a catfight between supermodels.

June 8, 2007
Something seems to be off when the actors onscreen are having a better time than the audience. Just like the first Ocean's film, this isn't so much a movie as a private party.

For all its forced twinkle, Ocean's Thirteen leaves you with no real warmth, like a croupier who's just cleaned you out before he wishes you a nice day.

Ocean's Thirteen is hack Hollywood garbage, the sort of film that thinks so little of its supposedly sure-thing audience that it never breaks a sweat. That's not cool; that's lazy.
Full Review | Original Score: D
June 8, 2007
A lightweight but altogether entertaining romp-reunion that seems like nothing more -- or less -- than a do-over for the Steven Soderbergh-George Clooney Gang's ponderous, too-hip-for-the room Ocean's Twelve.

In Hollywood's version of Vegas, I'll have the surf, and the turf, and the vegetarian, and anything else Soderbergh wants to serve me.

June 8, 2007
Why put so much sheen on a movie that warrants and provokes nothing more than mild diversion? It's like serving sloppy joes on fine china.

June 8, 2007
This might be the first piece of escapism to have a whiff of public service at its heart.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 8, 2007
Thematically, though, this is an improvement on its forebears, mainly due to the way it deals - much like Scorsese's best work - with the archaic nature of the criminal set.

Hilarity-free.
June 7, 2007
It's time to send the Danny Ocean franchise out to sea, for good.
June 7, 2007
With Ocean's Thirteen, the gang's all here, looking fighting trim and Hollywood beautiful, at your disposable pleasure.

Ocean's Thirteen will please those who delight in its persistent self-mythologizing, but the thrill of the original is gone, and nothing can bring it back.

June 7, 2007
Surrendering to Ocean's 13's pleasurable surfaces is sort of like admitting your attraction to a luxury brand: Sure, those alligator loafers are extravagant nonsense, but they feel so nice on your feet.
June 7, 2007
Ocean's 11's easy chemistry and effortless style return alongside the let's-take-down-a-casino plot.

June 7, 2007
The details, the plots, the stratagems, the counter-stratagems mount and mount and mount until the thing reaches a point of such overplotted density it can't be penetrated.
June 7, 2007
Evocatively shot with the saturated color of '60s film and accompanied by David Holmes' retro-mod score, Ocean's Thirteen is a boy's-night-out lark that girls can enjoy.

Ocean's Thirteen is as lazy and laid-back as a softball game with the beer keg at second. And it's just as enjoyable.

June 7, 2007
The most enjoyable thing about the Ocean's movies is that nobody involved seems to take them seriously. The star wattage is immense but the stars themselves are refreshingly self-deprecating, almost satirically so.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
June 7, 2007
A sequel (or three-quel, if you will) that returns to the vicarious fun of the first movie, Ocean's Eleven, and all but erases the not-so-fond memory of the preening ego-trip that was Ocean's Twelve.

Ultimately, if you give yourself up to its manufactured charm, it all becomes comfortingly familiar.

The party may well be ending for these gentlemen, but it was fun while it lasted.

June 7, 2007
After the story's wheels are set in motion, you pretty much know everything that's going to happen, but director Steven Soderbergh makes it fun to watch your winning hand unfold.

The movie is all heist, which Soderbergh carries off in high style.

June 7, 2007
Its a funny, chummy movie that is every bit as over-plotted, absurd and indulgent as Ocean's Twelve. The big improvement? This time the ham is served on wry.

June 7, 2007
Like the first Ocean's, Ocean's Thirteen is a satisfying story of a grand-scale swindle, but it also retains the impishness and charm of Ocean's Twelve.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 7, 2007
Hollywood's summer of risk-free programming continues with the fourth three-peat in six weeks, Ocean's Thirteen, the least overbearing of the franchise installments rolled out so far.

Ocean's Thirteen is passingly enjoyable summer fluff, but if you can find a more genial, less edgy caper movie, you might want to own it as a pet.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 7, 2007
For two hours, life as you drearily know it is effectively suspended and a summery delirium takes over. This may be one of the busiest movies ever made, but Soderbergh keeps the activity percolating with a fizzy arsenal of retro editing flourishes.

This time, the con is on the audience.
June 7, 2007
I know full well I'm expected to Suspend My Disbelief. Unfortunately, my disbelief is very heavy, and during Ocean's Thirteen, the suspension cable snapped.

June 7, 2007
Predictably adolescent and smarmy, with the mix of sentimentality and cynical flippancy that's becoming Steven Soderbergh's specialty (even when he's pretending to make art films), this is chewing gum for the eyes and ears, and not bad as such.
June 7, 2007
Thirteen is all about maintaining a barely perceptible smirk behind an impassive pose. The line between cool and cold is a thin one, however. Cool isn't the word for Thirteen; it's just smug.

June 6, 2007
Ocean's Thirteen still feels like one trip too many to the craps table, playing the same hunches, with the outcome unimaginatively clear from the start: Categorical victory for the rascally good guys, utter defeat and humiliation for the villain.
June 6, 2007
There's actually a coherent script, and there are some real laughs. Not big laughs, mind you, but a fairly steady stream of smiles and chuckles. And their newest caper is, as expected, fiendishly complex and outlandishly executed.
June 6, 2007
Ocean's Thirteen is the first sequel of the summer of 2007 not to fall on its face. The film is better paced and more involving than Ocean's Twelve but perhaps not as well executed as Ocean's Eleven.

June 6, 2007
[A] delectably elaborate and savory soufflé of a mother-of-all-scams sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
June 6, 2007
A spectacle blatantly predicated on a smug gaggle of mega movie stars in boss threads ostentatiously having fun by pretending to steal the house's money, while actually taking yours.
June 4, 2007
After a lot of buildup, not much happens at the climax.
June 4, 2007
Is it possible that only a director so distrustful of surfaces could surrender so thrillingly to the big lie?
June 2, 2007
It's watchable, colorful and intermittently funny, but given the level of talent on display, it's reasonable to want more than that.
May 25, 2007
[Recaptures] much of the spirit of the original film.
May 24, 2007
So listless and logy it needed Michael Moore to take it to Cuba for emergency medical treatment.
May 24, 2007
As smooth as a good mojito, as stylish as an Armani suit and as meaningful in the grand scheme of things as yesterday's Las Vegas betting odds, Ocean's Thirteen continues the breezy good times of the first two series entries without missing a beat.
