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
Matt Damon's London street scene, showing Linus walking through London speaking on the phone was shot while Matt Damon was in London filming The Bourne Ultimatum. The Ocean's Thirteen production took advantage of this happy coincidence as they wanted Greco to be a British classmate of Roman Nagel, so having Linus in London played well to the story. See more »
Whenever the principals are at the airport, Gulfstream-class private jets await them. Gulfstream passenger cabins have distinctive oversize rounded "porthole" windows. Only such planes appear on the tarmac; however when there is a momentary in-flight clip showing the passenger's aerial view of the passing landscape below, the window is a small "sardine can" window of a typical commercial airliner. Clearly this was generic stock footage of "anyplane" flying over "anycity". When the highrollers are later disembarking, the windows become classic Gulfstream portholes again. See more »
The movie is any day better than ocean's twelve (which i think was really bad) but still not as good as the original! All of them are back and why not with such an amazing director and support group who wouldn't come back. Al Pacino is fantastic as always and adds that extra bit to the movie.
Story is actually at par with the first one and 20 times better than the second movie! Got to see an early screening and loved it. I don't want to spoil the movie. But one thing is true that the story is again complicated and its for the better only as the more complicated the better. Acting as always amazing.
After disappointments of spider-man 3, shrek 3 and to some extent POC 3, this one s easily better than the above three and thus this is a must watch 9/10
