Customer Reviews

Overall, this is a good movie: funny, smart, and very entertaining.
Melissa Niksic
There are many plot holes but director Soderbourgh keeps you so interested in the characters and flashy style of the movie that you might not even notice them.
C. Copeland
I don't get why people are saying such bad things about this, I don't get it... Were they watching a different movie than me?

I saw Ocean's Eleven, reluctantly, and fell in love. It opened the door for me to be able to tolerate George Clooney and Brad Pitt (although 12 Monkeys and Fight Club continue to be his best work). That being said, Twelve was NOT Eleven.

This does not make it bad, just different. The difference though being a rather large one. Instead of one tremendously clever caper, we have three blase ones with alot of down time in between. And herein is where I think alot of people torched this film. They wanted to see the exact same genius of the first script and instead got Ocean and crew palling around Europe. This film is by no means a mind buster, but it IS an enjoyable film with some rather entertaining times and the same type of story one would expect the writers to come up with for this crew.

All in all, not the best one out of the group, but I challenge anyone who bashed this film for not being as good as the first one to give me a series of films that consistently IMPROVED upon itself. There have been A LOT of letdown sequels out there, I would not go so far as saying this one was a letdown. Eleven was 5 stars........this one is four, for simply being a fun film as long as you can sit back and not start making Ocean's Eleven comparisons. Sure it bears the namesake, but it is NOT the same film. And honestly, it does a great job showing just how clever Terry Benedict can be as the villain. One of Andy Garcia's best roles, albeit short lived.

I got to apologize for reviewing the film itself instead of the product, but I honestly felt this was being unfairly represented by alot of the reviews. Hope this helps give some counterpoint. And FYI, the disk is great I simply wish it had a little more meat. Not alot in the way of extras

Ocean's Eleven set a very high standard, one of its strengths was that all the characters got their moments to shine. In Twelve, unfortunately, most of the cast is absent for most of the film. Saying that, this film was great because these characters looked human and vulnerable. I mean they full off this spectacular heist in the first movie and in this movie they are trying to stay alive by making another amazing score, but, there is the ever present danger of Andy Garcia's character threatening to kill each of them.

This film had very large shoes to fill. It's the same with every sequel that follows an amazing first movie. Some folks have been very harsh with their comments of this movie. I say the same thing every time I view a movie. You have to keep an open mind and try not to compare the sequels with the first movie. On its own this movie has lots of charm, its filmed in Europe in three of the most exciting cities on the continent. Its kinda sad because they seem to bungle everything (have you seen anything so sad as those guys being arrested and hauled off to jail?) before it comes together. Yes it has a lot of star power, but no not everyone is enamored with the faces of "A" list celebrities. Sometimes we are enamored with their acting ability. Oh, yes. Soderburg gets 5 stars for direction.

'Ocean's Twelve' has committed many typical mistakes when Hollywood studios fail to come up any new ideas, but still want to make a movie quickly. OK, let me tell you one by one:

A) THE DISJOINTED PLOT (or making an unnecessary sequel). Right, we don't need this. We already have slick, stylish 'Ocean's Eleven' so why make this one? Add to this question, what's the point of this new '12' anyway? George Clooney and other guys came back. Right, and Andy Garcia's (last time) humiliated casino owner came back, who wants his money back. So Ocean and his pals have to pull off another heist in Holland, in order to pay the cash quickly. So far, OK.

BUT. hey, anyone, can you summerize this? The film next introduces another (French) crook Vincent Cassel, and another retired crook, and Catherine Zata Jones's female investigator (from 'Europole', and she happens to know Brad Pitt's character ... how convenient), and many cameos from Hollywood, including Bruce Willis as himself. And Julia Roberts flies to the place when Ocean's men are in trouble, all the way from America. To prove what? I still do not know.

B) EUROPEAN LOCATIONS. And they went out of USA, to travel to such places as Rome and Amsterdam. That means there is no gorgeous, glittering feeling of Las Vegas, the town which no doubt helped create the stylish mood of the original. But anyway, the entire cast must have had fun.

C) SO MANY CAMEOS and references to other films. If you don't have good idea, get cameos. It's easy, you pay just a little (by the standard of Hollywood), the stars work only a day or two, and the audiences will be amused. That's what some people are thinking.

"Ocean's 12" is nearly as much fun as Steven Soderbergh's 2002 film "Ocean's 11". This is, of course the sequel to "Ocean's 11". The main problem with this movie is that it goes on a bit too long. Clockin in at 135 minutes, there are too many things going on and the last act is completely confounding. In a way, this movie reminded me of the recent "Ladykillers" remake, in that it has comically inept criminals doing things that they rally can not do. But "Ocean's 12" is less of a caper comedy like its predesecsor was, and more of an action caper. There are no amazing shootouts or daring car chases/races/or crashes, but there is a large amount of heists, some that are involved in mechanics or outrageous stunts. So, that said, I think that "Ocean's 12", while funny and quite entertaining, could have been shortened by 15 or 20 minutes. I thought that Catherine Zeta Jones' character was not that well established, and the writers (perhaps purposefully) left it to the audience to figure out why she was even there!
