It has a brilliant star cast George Clooney, Matt Damon brad pitt and julia roberts to name a few!
robert
The character is lacking somewhat in depth and definition, but Pitt manages to give you a clear idea of who Rusty is without too much by way of development.

"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.

I've got to admit, half the fun of this movie is the star-gazing. George Clooney is great as a convict recently released from jail, Brad Pitt is Mr. Suave as his right-hand man, and Julia Roberts plays the icy ex-wife beautifully. Throw in Matt Damon as a pick-pocket and Andy Garcia as a casino mogul and you've got the gist of this movie's star power.
The plot is pretty simple: Danny Ocean (Clooney) organizes a group of eleven highly skilled criminals to simultaneously rob three of Vegas' biggest casinos. Their plans are over the top and outrageous-and you can't help but smile watching them put into action. There are also some really memorable touches in the movie: including Brad Pitt teaching Shane West and Topher Grace how to play poker. This movie kind of serves as a who's-who in Hollywood. "Oceans" probably won't spark any deep conversations or teach you any life lessons, but it's fun watching the celebrities interact onscreen. If you want something deep and thought-provoking, this probably isn't your movie. But if you want to watch something purely for entertainment, this is a great and fun film.

Format: VHS Tape
Director: Stephen Soderbergh
Starring: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Don Cheedle, Elliot Gould, Eddie Jemison, Casey Affleck, Scott Cann, Bernie Mac, Shaobo Qin, Carl Reiner.
Release Date: 7/12/2001
Rated: PG-13 some language and sexual content
Running time: 1hr 58mins
Genre: Drama
While being incarcerated in a New Jersey jail, parolee Danny Ocean formulates a plan to win back his ex-wife and take down three of the largest casinos in Las Vegas, all within twenty- four hours of his release.
Ocean's Eleven, remake of the 1960 film, staring the Rat Pack, proved it needed no introduction as actor George Clooney and director Stephen Soderbergh worked together in creating this stylish action packed drama. This remake is definitely worth the wait.
Danny Ocean (George Clooney) devises plans amongst prison walls to bring together eleven men to perform a casino heist and win back his ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts). The success of this movie comes from a thrill seeking adventurous storyline, and from casting some of the finest actors on set to create a movie that is only to be applauded. With the likes of a young pickpocket Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon); Ocean's main man, the smart and stylish Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt); casino owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia); with Ocean's ex-wife Tess, played by the stunning Julia Roberts; and Danny Ocean portrayed by none other than George Clooney himself, where could the acting go wrong? The cast took the film to another level, one of class and excitement.
Ocean's Eleven is a film with no dead spots. As Clooney and his carefully selected crew continue to make adjustments to their plans, so continues the action and suspense for the audience.

...The movie is ten times better than the mediocre original. Danny Ocean(George Clooney), is released from prison. It doesn't take long for him to get back to his old ways. He devises a plan to steal $163 million dollars from the tightly guarded vault of the Las Vegas casino The Bellagio. To do so, he needs to round up a crew of men to pull this very tough heist off. Enter the rest of the 'Star Power' cast. Brad Pitt plays Clooney's right hand man, Rusty Ryan. Matt Damon plays a talented pocket picker named Linus. Don Cheadle really has a nothing role, but makes up for it with his lively and entertaining accent. Comedy legend Carl Reiner is also on hand as an aging thief. Comedian Bernie Mac(one of the stars of "The Kings Of Comedy" film)is one of the gang as well. Andy Garcia plays Terry Benedict, the owner of the casino they are going to hit. Terry is now with Danny's ex Tess, played by Julia Roberts. There isn't anything new with the film really, but who cares?. It was designed to be a fun crowd pleaser from beginning to end. It delivers on all sides. There are numerous one liners that come fast and sharp. The actors deliver them with full force. The funniest gag is Pitt's character teaching young T.V. stars how to play poker. Those stars being Joshua Jackson from "Dawson's Creek", Topher Grace from "That 70's Show", Holly Marie Combs from "Charmed", Barry Watson from "7th Heaven", and Shane West from "Once And Again". The "Chewing Scenery" award goes to Elliot Gould, who plays a casino owner equipped with big glasses, cigar, and lots of jewelry sprawled out in dark chest hair. It's a comical highlight. Good for him. Reiner gives a wonderful performance. It's nice to see the legend has still got it. Our stars are wonderful too.Read more ›
