Sadly to simplistic in acting, script and directing style. Also in all of the mentioned categories it's also too cliche and predictable. Due to it's obvious faults it does not create immersion, and breaks the narrative and coherent storytelling. Lousy execution of scenes, and down right boring action scenes. The truth is that it does create nostalgia but it doesn't help much.
The visual effects are really great, and crispy but other than that and the message of the movie, not much can be said for the movie.
Overall it's a below average movie, which in a lot of ways is over valued due to nostalgia. Super cliche movie with cheesy lines and easily predictable story.
This movie was fun tot watch, had great humor, perfect writing and story development and great value of entertainment. Overall it is in my opinion an under appreciated movie.
The acting was great with big fully professional cast. The directing was great, and all the scenes had a reflection of the character's feelings, with amazingly shot scenes and good cinematography. The humor was sometimes dark, and never felt awkward or dragging. Great writing with a script that always had tension conflict and fun, and didn't have any pacing issue also due to the fact that it created great immersion.
At the core of the competitive spirit of the game lies a hearth warming message that was delivered in style paired with a great but sad conclusion.
Overall it's a very good movie which is also based on true events.
This movie felt like an average reboot of a very good heist trilogy, where only the cast and the story twists was performing well.
The Ocean's movies always had good casts and this is no exception. The actors did a great job impersonating their characters and the great and soft complex script complemented their skills very well.
The directing was average and nothing to really talk about there, except for the fact that the screen-time for certain scenes felt to long or too short.
The story was really a cheesy one, with a vendetta, pride and greed at the core of it, which was nothing fresh and unseen before. It just wasn't the masterpiece as the other ocean's movie set out to be.s
Also as the story unfolded most of the events felt like it had no stakes, like the vigilante protagonists had no competition or no real antagonists. The guys that where supposed to be the antagonists where scripted to be a bunch of irrational losers.
So overall it was an above average movie the sadly did not deliver on the level of detail and entertainment that the other movies raised the bar for. It is a good heist movie, but and above average movie in general value. Also there was no real message in the story and the ending was to corny for most of he general viewers.
This movie felt like the son of jackass on steroids, without the really next level crazy cast. The performance of the actors was really great and felt real believable even for the tension filled and emotional scenes. Nothing out of the ordinary but still pretty good.
The directing was really heavy on the practical shooting and did every single stunt in real life with added safety measures. And for most of the time there weren't even stunt doubles, and for this hats off to Johnny Knoxville for still being able to pull of some crazy things to hurt himself just to entertain.
For this the entertainment value of the movie was good and overall it was fun to watch, the only bad thing about the movie was the cheesy script and sometimes cliche story. Due to this the immersion sometimes was broken. The bi-linear story-line felt too simple and to generic for most viewers even though the rest of the movie was executed with style and care.
Overall it's an above average movie with a great production crew and humor filled scenes, even though the humor did not shine as much as expected. At the core the movie has a sweet message but sadly it was delivered in the cheesy way.
