Danny Ocean likes his chances. All he asks is that his handpicked squad of 10 grifters and cons play the game like they have nothing to lose.

"Ocean's Eleven" is a Ferrari of a movie: cool, stylish, and classy. And if, like a Ferrari, it doesn't always work, that's OK - who will complain when it's so stylish?
The premise is lifted right out of the 1960 Rat Pack original: Danny Ocean (George Clooney, suave as hell) is released from prison, and plots to steal over $163 million from the vault of a Las Vegas casino during a heavyweight fight. He recruits his old buddy Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt), and they put together a dream team of crooks, each of whom has a specialty. There's a computer geek, a demolition expert, a con man, a pickpocket, and so on.
And, of course, there's Danny's ex-wife, Tess (Julia Roberts), who's now involved with the manager (Andy Garcia) of the casino Danny intends to rob. So, Danny's not only after money - he wants his girl back as well. But she's having nothing of it, as evidenced by this neat dialogue piece:
Danny: "I've paid my debt to society."
Tess: "Funny, I haven't gotten my check yet."
Dialogue like that is one of the great pleasures of this movie; watching it delivered by the likes of Clooney, Roberts, Pitt and the stellar supporting cast (Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Carl Reiner, Elliott Gould, et al) is the other.
And, in fairness, it's a good thing that the dialogue and acting is so good, because as a pure caper flick, "Ocean's Eleven" is, to be charitable, a little thin. In the best caper movies ("The Heist" comes to mind), the theft itself is the star of the movie - the intracicies, the backup plans, the intrigue. In "Ocean's Eleven," we're expected to believe that a casino with over $150 million in its vault wouldn't have a backup power generator, or that the vault's security system wouldn't have a motion sensor.
But criticisms like that are akin to nitpicking that red Ferrari 575 because it has a small trunk - the point isn't realism, it's style, and like a Ferrari, "Ocean's Eleven" has it in droves.

Remakes a movies tend to get mixed reactions from moviegoers, Oceans 11 is one of the greatest remakes ever. I'm a fan of the old one with the rat pack, but it's got nothing on this one.
Oceans 11 is a fun story. Danny Ocean(Clooney) has just gotten out of jail. He wants to steal $150 million dollars from Terry Benidickt(Garcia). In the process he wants to also get his ex-wife back and he gets an all star gang to help him pull this caper off.
George Clooney was great in the film. I've always had mixed reactions for Clooney on the big screen, because he does a hit movie and then goes and does a bunch of duds. I don't get why he does it. He's great in this one and his fans will be well pleased.
Brad Pitt was the best in this film. He was cocky, arrogant, and so dang cool all at the same time. Him, Garcia, and Damon really drove the film for me. It's such a slick film, and Pitt has the slickest character. Awesome performance.
I didn't like Julia Roberts in the movie. You don't see a whole lot of her, but they advertised her name like crazy for it. SHe doesn't do all that bad, I just don't care for her to much.
Matt Damon was great in the movie. This guy really is a great actor. He doesn't get the kind of attention he deserves. He's signed on to do the sequel to this alond with Pitt and Clooney. Damons fans will be pleased with his job in this.
This is a great film. It's so slick and was very well made. The DVD could have had some more extras, but oh well. Look at the movies that are already copying it. The Italian Job was done the same way as this one, except it was gold and not as big of a cast. It's a great film and I have to reccomend it to everyone.

Ocean's 11 just happens to be the best crime film in a long time. Not since films such as "The Sting" has a movie emulating common criminals come off as such a huge success story!
Starring an unbelievably talented cast (George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts are the big names) and directed by the sublime Steven Soderberg, Ocean's 11 is the third "classic" of the 21st century (the others being Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone).
The film opens with Danny Ocean (Clooney) being released from jail for a crime we are given little information on. While behind bars, his wife, Tess (Roberts) has divorced him and hooked up with the villain of the story, Terry, who happens to own three Las Vegas casinos. So Danny sets about using his newly found freedom to rob Terry of both his money and his woman. To do this, he enlists the help of 11 eccentric master criminals, including a pickpocket (Damon), an electronics boff, an East Asian circus gymnast, an aging con artist with ulcers and a host of others.
The plan is to rob the central vault of the three casinos, which, in the words of Ocean, "is better protected than a nuclear missile silo." It contains over 160 million US dollars.
So do they get away with it? Far be it from me to spoil the ending of a film as good as this one. I'm afraid you'll have to watch it yourself...you won't be disappointed!

Format: VHS Tape
With enough star power to light Las Vegas (as long as no one's around with a pinch), Ocean's Eleven comes packed with all the action, suspense, comedy, and George Clooney a girl could want (guys, substitute 'Julia Roberts' for 'George Clooney'). George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Julia Roberts, and Elliot Gould, among others, make the picture sparkle with superb acting, while excellent directing from Steven Soderbergh keeps the picture down-to-earth, funny, and interesting without losing the element of suspense.

The plot, based on the 1960 Rat Pack film of the same title, is equally good; the characters especially are well written and casted. The Ocean's Eleven, as well as other main characters are unique and realistic, and very well interpreted by the cast. Even the costumes used help to make the film unforgettable.

Definitely a firm recommendation for anyone who likes a good movie--this one's got it all, supense, humor, and action. Just be careful while laughing on the edge of your seat; it tends to be dangerous.

Intriguing movie quote: "Ted Nugent called. He wants his shirt back."
