Movie Review: Ocean Thirteen
My rating: 7 from 10.
What are the odds of getting even? Danny Ocean and the gang would have only one reason to pull off their most ambitious and riskiest casino heist–to defend one of their own. But they’re going to need more than luck on their side to break The Bank.Ruthless casino owner Willy Bank never imagined that the odds were against him when he double-crossed Danny Ocean’s friend and mentor Reuben Tishkoff, putting the distraught Reuben in a hospital bed in critical condition. But Bank miscalculated–badly. He may have taken down one of the original Ocean’s eleven, but he left the others standing and, worse for him, gave them a shared purpose: to take Bank down on the night of what should be his greatest triumph–the grand opening of his new casino, appropriately named The Bank. Their strategy is twofold. First they will ruin him financially by turning the tables on the precept that the house always wins. But that’s just money.
I didn’t get to excited when watching Ocean Eleven and Twelve. The plot was to flat for me to keep me awake. But this sequel is better. A con show packed with comedy and big star (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Al Pacino, so on). At least it is quite a good film and I didn’t fall asleep.
