- An Amazon.ca Best of 2005 selection.
Well, for those who don't know, there is a chance they may make an Ocean's Thirteen (13 is not a lucky number,) and hopefully they'll redeem this crap-tastic film in the next, if they decide to do it. But, take my advice, skip this film and go buy Ocean's Eleven. That was a good movie.
The final caper was boring and it just seemed like all these actors did just want to get together in Europe and have a good time. Although i am sure if i went to Europe with my friends with a camcorder i could produce a more exciting and well made film then this.
This film showed how arrogant and disrespectful Americans can be especially with the constant references to the fact that the other theif was French. I hail from Canada and am proud of our French culture and have a lot of respect for France.
Just because France didn't go to war with U.S. and Britain does not mean you denounce their entire country in a movie in an arrogant manner. American claims to be the land of the free but not free thinking. A lot countries including Canada did not go or were against the war in Iraq but the director should have been smarter about that type of comment. Respect should be a minimum espcially such a large scale movie such as this.
Sorry to turn this political but I was quite offended by that comment and the movie in general. It shows the decline of American society and film industry. Its not too late for the country and the film industry to put some effort into their movies not just money and high profile actors.
I have offically switched to foreign films, a lot more depth and you won't see them holding a coca cola can in your face.
to clense your mind of this movie i suggest, House of the Flying Daggers.
Thanks and just because your watching a movie don't mean you have to turn your brain off, stay thirsty.
