This 3rd in the series of fun heist films is good-looking on blu-ray, and the rich set design is definitely a highlite. Though completely implausible, Ocean's Thirteen is nonetheless enjoyable, and I quite like the addition of Ellen Barkin and Al Pacino to this caper (as well as Eddie Izzard, who I wish there was more of). The blu-ray extras are good. In addition to a commentary and deleted scenes, there are two great documentaries (approx. 25 min. ea.), Masters of the Heist (which profiles real-life thieves, and includes comments by Penn & Teller), and Vegas An Opulent Illusion (which shows the strip, and some of it's history, architecture etc.), plus a brief casino tour with producer Jerry Weintraub. The film is fun and good-looking on blu-ray, but to me it's the bonus documentaries that make the disc worth viewing. (3 - 3 1/2 stars)
