Dallas Observer
Soderbergh seems to have found his vision again. It'll be a great day when he returns to writing his own material, but until then, this is none too shabby.

For sheer urbane elegance coupled with technical mastery and lush, old-fashioned élan, no one working for the studios today comes close to the versatile Soderbergh.

ReelViews
Enjoyable, and will likely appeal to anyone who appreciated the 2001 film.

Premiere
Soderberg provides a cornucopia of fizzy, post–New Wave imagery, fitting for a picture that’s pretty much all about surfaces.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
So fizzy it nearly fizzles out.

Village Voice
Funnier and sprightlier than Eleven, which exhibited a genial self-consciousness but never thought to challenge the genre textbook, Twelve is committed to not taking itself seriously.
70
Stephen Mirrione's fast-paced editing and David Holmes' pop-rock score propel the story ever forward whether one follows the twists or not.
70
Variety
This smooth inside job benefits from heightened bonhomie among the players, fab Euro locations and a diminished obligation to stick to the heist genre boilerplate.
60
Newsweek
Busier, messier and thinner than its predecessor...the studied hipness can get so pleased with itself it borders on the smug.
33
Entertainment Weekly
What's on screen is lazy, second-rate, phoned-in -- a heist in which it's the audience whose pockets have been picked.
