Trivia

The brief sequence with Terry and Tess presiding over the demolition of a Vegas hotel, with Danny and Linus looking on and Basher watching on TV originally had the New York, New York Hotel and Casino being brought down by explosives. However in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, it was felt this was completely inappropriate, as the image was too reminiscent of the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. The CG backdrop of the collapsing buildings was replaced just before the film's theatrical release with a new fictional hotel called the Xanadu. However the HBO 'behind the scenes' making of featurette, included on the DVD and Blu-ray, was made well before the movie was finished, and actually features the original pre-9/11 version of the sequence showing the New York, New York being demolished.

Tasty cast in very cool and slick movie
5 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

What a tasty prospect for a film: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Julia Roberts and for the young at heart amongst us, Joshua Jackson of 'Dawson's Creek' fame in a cameo role -all directed by the Oscar winning Steven Soderbergh!

George Clooney plays Danny Ocean who soon after being released from prison, puts together a team of eleven to undertake a robbery of the three biggest casinos in Las Vegas in an attempt to bring in a reward of $150 million. What soon becomes clear is that it's not the money which will give Danny the ultimate satisfaction, but the opportunity to get revenge on the owner of the three casinos he is robbing -Benedict (Andy Garcia) who just happens to be the new beau of Danny's ex, Tess (Julia Roberts).

Some of the gang of eleven are more memorable than others -especially the Chinese acrobat, the explosives expert with a dodgy cockney accent and the medallion wearing Reuben -aka Monica Gellar's dad! The cast are brilliant at acting cool -even if all Brad Pitt is doing is snacking on the screen (he does this a lot!), you are still transfixed by him because he looks so good on screen.

What makes the story so intriguing is the fact that Danny's mission seems so impossible: security in the casinos is paramount and the route to the reward is littered with obstacles. The number of close calls that the gang is faced with is great fun and one can't help but root for these crooks throughout the film. It is also refreshing to watch a film which is dominated by male stars and is not filled with macho swearing. Instead, we have a banter between the stars which is indicative of their camaraderie.

'Ocean's Eleven' is a welcome option in the choice of movies available at the moment which is dominated by Oscar nominees that are not going to be everyone's cup of tea. With this film, it's simply a case of sit back and enjoy the fun!
