a delightfully inventive artsy masterpiece (by tree_hugger4ever)
When I heard there was going to be a sequel to Ocean's Eleven, I thought "oh great, just another way for Hollywood to squeeze all the money it can out of an old idea." But when I saw it my jaw dropped. This is not as good as the first, it far surpasses it.I for one thought the cinematography was brilliant, the most inventive there has been for quite a while. This is a feast for the eyes, a veritable banquet of colour and imagery, with Europe as it's perfect backdrop. The writing was superb. Far from the confusing mess I have heard it described as, the plot is rich and full, <more>
with enough meat to keep the mind well active as it is being entertained. The movie was smart and funny without taking itself too seriously e.i. Julia Roberts pretending to be herself . The situations were, at times, unbelievable even absurd, but what point is there in a movie that does not stretch the bonds of reality just a little bit. If you want real life sit on a street corner and observe.The music was prefect for the movie, in stuck the exact right chords in the exact right places. it fit in to the over all feel of whimsy that was prominent through out film.As for the acting, there was no weak link. Matt Damon in particular was fantastic. I love the seen in the restaurant were Pitt and Clooney are talking in a fake code, Damon did exactly what he was suppose to do and produced a adorable, lovable character, without taking it too far, or taking himself too seriously. My advice to you is, if you want a typical mainstream movie, better save your money for Pirates of the Caribbean 2, but if you want a delightfully inventive artsy masterpiece Ocean's twelve is the one for you.
I loved Ocean's Eleven so I was hesitant to watch the sequel but this didn't fall flat the way so many sequels do. It is strange in that it builds off the original, you would be lost without previous knowledge of Ocean's Eleven, but yet it has an entirely new tone and feeling as well as European look rather than the Vegas glitz of the first movie. I was very happy that all of the originals came back for the sequel. If you like a good action movie that keeps you guessing then this movie is for you. It was very nice to see Brad Pitt's character fleshed out more in this movie. I <more>
would like to have seen more of the banter between the Malloy brother characters but on the whole the movie left me wondering if there will be an Ocean's 13. There seemed to be an opening for one with where they left the Night Fox at the end of Ocean's Twelve.
Most fun I have ever had watching a film. (by CoolHand996)
This movie was absolutely unbelievable in every sense of the word. And guess what....the first time i saw it in theaters...i basically left in tears, went home, voted on IMDb and gave it a 1. I thought it was terrible, i didn't understand a thing i had just seen. In this movie there are a lot of things to follow...it isn't like "11" where the movie is handed to you and if you don't understand it you should be hospitalized. This movie takes more then one viewing...i saw it twice in theaters and bought the DVD yesterday and watched it again. This movie is #5 on my top 25 <more>
only beaten by Goodfellas and the 3 Die Hards. And even if the movie had been terrible, the music would still make it a decent movie. the cast did a great job and Catherine Zeta-Jones is probably the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in film...something about her just takes my breath away.
Danny Ocean and friends are back for one more heist.this time its the heist of their lives (by melissa-penrod)
I found this movie to be sleek sheik and entertaining.I found the camera techniques to be very new and neat.the cast was great and they have a chemistry with each other that is truly rare.They leave you hanging right up till the end and then you're surprised to see how it plays out.Katherine Zeta Jones joins the all star cast as a female top cop and the love interest of Rusty Brad Pitt ,who not so coincidentally chose Amsterdam to pull the job to try to raise almost 20 million to save their lives after they are tracked down by Benedict Andy Garcias character ,who wants his money back <more>
with interest.There were a few scenes that the movie could have did without.One of those being the predictable scene where they dress Julia Roberts up as,well,Julia Roberts.You just know someones going to say that she doesn't even look like her which they do and that they're going to run into someone that knows the "real" Julia,which they do.Bruce Willis was funny though and kind of saved the scene.Also the movie could've done without the confusing showing the ending and then flashing back to what happened part.It made it hard to tell what happened when.However,This movie proves to be very entertaining from start to finish and worth the rental fee.I probably wont buy it but by the same token,I'm likely to rent it again just to see parts i missed.
This is a timeless movie that can be watched over and over. I have lost count of the times I've watched Ocean's Twelve on DVD - it is pure, engaging entertainment, a 2000's version of a 60's movie. Audrey and Carey are lurking just around the corner. There is something plain likable about a bunch of desperate thieves who have a conscience, and actors who buy into the dynamic. The dialog is snappy, the situations are believable, if not entirely plausible, but not absurd either. I liked Ocean's Eleven, this one with the European connection is classier, and funnier. The music <more>
is upbeat, and attractive, like almost everything else about the production. Actually, I can't think of anything negative about it - maybe a few scenes look fudged, but that is only apparent after looking at it repeatedly. The plot switches are most satisfying. This movie is smart.
I saw this movie a short while ago. It is surely not the same as the first one, and it does't have the "flair" and "coolness" as the first Oceans Eleven. But that's what makes this movie so great. They don't have time to plan their "moves" and think things through. They are on the run so they have to think fast. In my opinion the audience is taken on a spectacular joy-ride with many twists and turns. The Actors and Actresses play their roles as you want them to. Everyone is believable and funny in their own way. Vincent Cassel is my favorite actor in <more>
this movie, don't get me wrong they were all very good but he stood out a little bit. The people who have seen the Movie already know which scene I'm talking about. The only reason I didn't give it ten stars is because it does kinda miss a surprising twist in the end, but this ending is well done to.I recommend this movie to everyone because it's a great sequel to the first one and and I would love to see an Oceans Thirteen. I hope my Comment to this movie would encourage some to watch it.
Self-referential: see "self-referential" (by John K.-2)
Ocean's Twelve works for me because it's self-referential; in other words, it plants its tongue firmly in its cheek, and scatters references through the film to the real life people/situations behind the film. I can't tell you how without bringing down the wrath of the IMDb spoiler police on my head, but let's say that if you enjoy Hitchcock cameos or the humour of films such as Star Trek IV "Computer? Computer!" , you should like this one.It's also refreshing to see a film that treats Europe as being more than Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum. I <more>
actually watched it in Rome, one of the locations used in the film, and not a single ancient ruin appeared apart from George Clooney ;-> ; indeed, the opening scene of a line of cars all sounding their horns was familiar enough to send a laugh around the Roman audience.There were one or two plot oddities that'll probably show up in the IMDb goofs section Arsenal FC going from Amsterdam to Barcelona?! By bus?! but overall, a good night out.
Pleasantly surprised at the inventiveness of Ocean's Twelve (by jackcade)
As a great fan of the original Rat Pack fan, I didn't bother watching the remake of Ocean's Eleven until it appeared on a dreary night on pay TV. What an incredibly boring, dull, cold, sterile, lifeless, worthless film. It should never have been made and I kicked myself for wasting my time. The blandness of all the lead actors compared starkly in mind to the great personalities of the 1960 minor classic.It was with reluctance I traipsed in the rain with my friend Alita to see Ocean's Twelve on the big screen at the fabulous Delta Cinema in the main street of Ayr, North <more>
Queensland. One of the world's great cinemas, well worth a visit .However, I was pleasantly surprised that Soderbergh took a completely different approach to his earlier clanger. Ocean's Twelve had humour, wit and warmth that was completely lacking in his first effort.The same pretty ordinary cast give me the Rat Pack any day made an effort to put some spark into their performances. The Julia Roberts sequence was hysterically funny - almost slapstick - without taking away from the texture of the film. I admit The low-key acting of Damon, Willis et al worked well in this particular sequence.Best of all Soderberg was much more inventive in his cinematic storytelling. I have only seen a couple of his pictures, so I am no expert on his work. But it occurred to me that with Ocean's Twelve, he may well have been influenced by the inventiveness of Richard Lester. Possibly no surprise since Soderbergh's revealing and entertaining interview with Lester is a classic of film literature. The playful use of titles and imaginative camera angles and shots gave the sequel the pizazz good caper film needs.And as for those twists - well, it added to the fun.I was so pleased that the director took a different tack. For days afterward the one-liners, the "Amsterdam" title and the zoom shots of the prisoners being released were still playing over in my head.Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven was like watching paint dry, only not as entertaining.Ocean's Twelve is film-making. A fine if undistinguished film.
I am a bit exasperated and even a little disappointed at the mixed reviews for "Ocean's Twelve". The 60% score registered on RottenTomatoes' scale works as well as any to reflect the division within critics' ranks. Generally these are the films most worth viewing to determine how in the world such a large spread of opinion exists.Unless I am mistaken, the adult American moviegoer is a relatively well informed consumer. To that point, I cannot recall a single moment in any of the pre-release marketing blitz for "Ocean's Twelve" that indicated we had <more>
Oscar-contending material, great emotive acting or social impact/political value here. And since this is essentially "O.E. II" what major surprise might it be that what we have here is a great goof? Let's examine some facts.The plot: Terry Benedict we are treated to another Andy Garcia portrayal , victimized Bellagio owner of the first movie, wants his money back with interest. He leans, in succession, on all the original members of Danny Ocean's George Clooney eleven teammates. And of course the note is due in an impossible time frame. A lot of cash will need to be stolen, and fast. So the original "O.E." team needs to be reassembled to pull some more capers.What the team also finds out in short order is that not only are they being tailed by a resourceful and strikingly Katherine Zeta-Jones international policeman but are also threatened by a master thief Vincent Cassel as Francois that wants to top them in every way. So our boys have to buck up and try and fend off all manner of adversity as they pursue their less than honorable "does anyone have any moral issues about this?" is asked early on goals.This is not a flick filled with Bond-like gadgets or even the usual heist-focused set ups. But there is just enough of that to whet the appetite. The elaborate set up in their first caper, beginning with a shot of a sailboat at anchor and then penetrating it's eerie appearance to see what is going on below gives just enough of a head scratching high-tech look and isn't it all about "the look"? to satisfy.One-liners and quips are expected and by rights a necessity not overlooked in "Ocean's Twelve". And knowing glances. Lots of glances. Let's face it; this really is a hip collection of talented individuals. Most of us aren't, couldn't be and probably don't even know one. Well, here is a whole room full. I suspect most critics are jealous; always have. Listen to Elliot Gould's line when surprised at an interruption during his visit to a fortune teller. Watch K. Zeta-Jones turn in the only real emotional scene. It is actually quite touching. Having played the somewhat hard-bitten and driven law enforcement pro, she offers a bit of vulnerability for us to savor. See Brad Pitt grimace when he finds he's made a mistake.Check out two interviews there are many available to share the sheer fun these stars have and consider how lucky we are for their collaboration. See what George Clooney says http://www.darkhorizons.com/news04/ocean1.php about caper movies. Better yet, check out the ensemble interview at http://home.hamptonroads.com/stories/story.cfm?story 79148&ran 247675 in which we sense the fun this group had and continues to have.In all, we are offered what we expect a smart caper film with some of the best in Hollywood delivering the goods. There is no political message here, no social axe ground nor remarkable signature or auteur offered; I trust you to relegate those criticisms for the art-house films and the annual launch of Oscar contenders as 2004 winds down. What we have here is a nice entertainment for the holiday season!Rating: 3-1/4 Stars.
