Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
The last time we saw Danny Ocean's crew, they were paying back ruthless casino mogul Terry Benedict after stealing millions from him. However, it's been a while since they've come back together, which is all about to change. When one of their own, Reuben Tishkoff, builds a hotel with another casino owner, Willy Bank, the last thing he ever wanted was to get cut out of the deal personally by the loathsome Bank. Bank's attitude even goes so far as to finding the amusement in Tishkoff's misfortune when the double crossing lands Reuben in the hospital because of a heart attack. However, Danny and his crew won't stand for Bank and what he's done to a friend. Uniting with their old enemy Benedict, who himself has a vendetta against Bank, the crew is out to pull off a major plan; one that will unfold on the night Bank's newest hot spot opens up. They're not in this for the money, but for the revenge. Written by
Danny Ocean (George Clooney) makes an appeal on behalf of Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) by telling Willie Bank (Al Pacino)"What I want, what's most important to me..." This is the same line that that Michael Corleone, played by Pacino, uses when making an appeal for his father's safety to Virgil "The Turk" Sollozzo in The Godfather (1972) See more »

I don't know why I went to see this movie. The entire film is driven by the motive of only one thing: A guaranteed success of screwing over a powerful hotel and casino owner by Danny Ocean and his gang because he gave one of Danny's men a heart attack. I've never been a fan of the Ocean's trilogy, and probably never will. This film and its predecessors may have very famous and lovable actors in them, but this definitely isn't their best. I'm afraid I was counting the seconds until it was over and regretted spending the money for it. This doesn't usually happen to me because I love films and always try to see the best in them. This isn't a BAD movie, per say, but it's very boring and isn't always clear. How many talented and great actors managed to fit in this film is beyond me. If you ask me, there are too many. Too bad.
