Warner Brothers did a fantastic job with the transfer and it looks even better than the version that's played HBO and Cinemax off and on over the past few years.
If you're a fan of this film, you OWE IT TO YOURSELF to purchase this disc, even if it means you need to purchase a Blu-ray player as well!
Note the commentary is the same one from the DVD editions, but is still entertaining, and there are a few new extras on this disc.
I'll be forever grateful that WB decided to issue this catalog title on BD.
The central story is about a group of ex 82nd Airborne servicemen attempting to rob five big Las Vegas casinos and how their ingenious plan goes astray. The narrative is augmented by historically fascinating shots of Las Vegas as it was circa 1960. Especially interesting for fans of a bygone era in show business are the bill boards announcing which stars are appearing at which casino. That delightful and mostly forgotten Canadian singer Gisele Mackenzie is prominently proclaimed.
The Blu-ray presentation of the movie is superb and cannot be praised too highly. Watching this BRD via a projector on a ten foot wide screen was as good as seeing the movie in a cinema. I recommend this Blu-ray disc to anyone who enjoys the movie, particularly if they have a projector.
Housed in a cheap and flimsy 'eco-case' (which I am truly coming to despise) 'Ocean's 11' is presented on a BD 50GB disc with a 1080p/VC-1 encode. Blu Ray book packaging would have been very nice for this film and would have helped raise the 'cool' factor a bit more for those of us who are real fans, but alas it was not to be. The film loads quickly to the disc menu and there is no annoying Java to stop your player from utilizing your 'disc resume' function! Wish they ALL were like that!
Should you spend your hard earned cash to upgrade form DVD or VHS? IN a word: YES!!!!
'Ocean's 11' come to Blu Ray looking better than I could have hoped. For the most part the print is clean, free of defects and except for the overlaying credits at the end of the film (done optically and resulting in print dirt and image blur) the picture is sharp, crisp, detailed AND VERY COLORFUL!
The Technicolor print is VERY good with "Real Life" color timing which really lends itself to a movie from the 1960's. Flesh tones look great, all the colors of Vegas shine and there are many instances where depth of field shows itself during this presentation.Read more ›
Eleven buddies (led by Danny Ocean, aka Sinatra) plan and pull off a theft at five Las Vegas casinos simultaneously. They get away with their haul, but are later confronted by an ex-gangster who's figured out what occurred and is demanding half the take.
Shirley MacLaine's impromptu appearance as a tipsy gal is a highlight; George Raft (who was a personal friend of Vegas pioneer Bugsy Siegel) portrays a casino owner and Red Skelton appears as himself. Richard Boone is the voice of an unseen minister; TV quiz show announcer George Fenneman can be heard in a phone conversation with an interrogating sheriff. Watch for one-time cowboy star Hoot Gibson in his last screen appearance, as a roadblock deputy.
The Rat Pack's next adventure was SERGEANTS 3, a 1962 remake of "Gunga Din." Frank and Dean also show up at the end of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's last road picture, THE ROAD TO HONG KONG (1961).
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.
