One of the best heist films ever. Soderbourgh is a genius.
24 November 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Ocean's Eleven contains one of the best casts ever in my opinion. It's got comedy, romance, played, clever tricks and more. Soderbourgh directs and shows why he got 2 Oscar nominations in 2001. I'm skipping on the plot because most of us already know about this great film. Let's meet the eleven shall we?

1- Danny Ocean (George Clooney). The leader of the gang. Had quite a grudge on Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) after stealing his ex-wife (Julia Roberts) while he was in New Jersey prison.

2- Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt). One of the main leaders. Plays as a great con-artist and at one point during the film did a fine act in front of the gang.

3- Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon). Another con-artist and made a living off of pulling off cool ways of pick-pocketing the public.

4- Frank Catton (Bernie Mac). Con-artist and hired as a casino black jack dealer during Ocean's stay in jail.

5- Yen (Shaobo Qin). Someone who didn't talk much English until the end. He's the acrobatic extraordinaire for stunts that could only be pulled off by someone as small as him.

6- Virgil Malloy (Casey Affleck). Him and Turk have always annoyed each other for the longest time. Con-artist.

7- Turk Malloy (Scott Caan). Him and Virgil have always annoyed each other for the longest time. Con-artist.

8- Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle). Plays as the hilarious English-accented explosives specialist. Early in the movie, we see a hilarious bank heist gone wrong.

9- Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould). The money source.

10- Livingston Dell (Eddie Jemison). The computer/electronics specialist. At one point, he needs to overpass security cameras with his skills.

11- Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner). A great con-artist who can play a guy his age but as a different culture and such.

Together, they all form a heist to steal $160 Mil and the whole story is very entertaining. Andy Garcia plays the rich guy who owns his own casino and steals Ocean's ex-wife, played by Julia Roberts.

Being so impressed by Ocean's Eleven, I wanted there to be a sequel. I must have seen this movie about 20 times. It turns out the day I bought the DVD, I found out that they would be making Ocean's Twelve three years later. Now in 2004, we only have to wait a few more weeks for Ocean's Twelve. The sequel looks promising and is definitely the #1 movie I must see this winter.

My Rating: 10/10
