Ocean's Twelve (DVD) (WS)
Like its predecessor Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve is a piffle of a caper, a preposterous plot given juice and vitality by a combination of movie star glamour and the exuberant filmmaking skill of director Steven Soderbergh (Out of Sight, The Limey). The heist hijinks of the first film come to roost for a team of eleven thieves (including the glossy mugs of Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bernie Mac, and Don Cheadle), who find themselves pursued not only by the guy they robbed (silky Andy Garcia), but also by a top-notch detective (plush Catherine Zeta-Jones) and a jealous master thief (well-oiled Vincent Cassel) who wants to prove that team leader Danny Ocean (dapper George Clooney) isn't the best in the field. As if all that star power weren't enough--and the eternally coltish Julia Roberts also returns as Ocean's wife--one movie star cameo raises the movie's combined wattage to absurd proportions. But all these handsome faces are matched by Soderbergh's visual flash, cunning editing, and excellent use of Amsterdam, Paris, and Rome, among other highly decorative locations. The whole affair should collapse under the weight of its own silliness, but somehow it doesn't--the movie's raffish spirit and offhand wit soar along, providing lightweight but undeniable entertainment. --Bret Fetzer

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.
Can't wait for the 3rd one. My fav. movies are: Goodfellas, Made, Wedding Crashers, Anchorman, 40 year Old Virgin, Napolean Dynomite, Man on fire, Me, Myself, and Irene, Weekend at Bernies,Harold and Kumar go to White Castle. Tv: Rescue Me, The Shield, Seinfeld, House, Raymond, Will and Grace...
Hopefully if you have the same taste as me, you'll get Oceans 12...totally worth it.
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.
I'm much more surprised in that Steven Soderburgh did such a terrible job of directing this. Too bad for him, he did such a wonderful job with "Traffic", "Out of Sight" and so on...

This movie was ok. I thought the first one was better. It is kind of confusing, you really have to watch and pay attention, but by the end it all comes together.Published on April 19 2005
