Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
They pulled off one of the biggest heists ever and now they have another job to complete. Ocean's Eleven, which consisted off Danny Ocean (Clooney), Rusty Ryan (Pitt) and Linus Caldwell (Damon) and others, all thought they would be able to enjoy their money, but someone has other plans. Terry Benedict (Garcia) is still fuming after losing his money and wants it back. The team now have the job of getting all the money they spent back, or risk being thrown in jail. How are they going to get it all back? By pulling off another amazing plan.Written by
This is a below average second installment with again star-studded and a ridiculous screenplay
The movie centers at a new heist with Oceans's eleven but this time in Europe . The group is the same : Clooney , Pitt , Cheadle, Matt Damon, Scott Cahan, Carl Reiner.. They are blackmailed by Andy Garcia who tries to retrieve the money stolen from previous film . They are pursued by a clever and gorgeous Inspector , Catherine Zeta Jones , Brad Pitt's sweetheart .
This thrilling as well as hilarious hold-up film displays a twisted caper from the beginning to ending , comedy , turns , along with limited action of varied manner . It is starred by a famous group of Hollywood stars and several cameos who give lousy performances . The actors playing the leading roles all knew each other well and improvised dialogue as well as or better than the script . The comic relief being developed during the amusing relationship between the several and motley characters and their jokes among them . It has got an average screenplay and an usual final surprise . The film is developed in European scenarios : Ámsterdam , Roma , lagoon Como (where Clooney has got a mansion), but in spite of these marvelous places , there are barely outdoors . The picture is very boring and tiring , is slow-moving , there aren't action-packed , neither emotion , nor humor or suspense and a little intrigue . The first part of the series was an amusing yarn ,it had an exciting as well as surprising hold-up , here the heist is a manuscript only , the museum burglar results to be a disaster . However , the motion picture obtained success such as the previous ones ; in spite of , it turn out to be a bit dull and dreary . The movie is made for George Clooney and his friends , he's the host and main architect of the movie ; because living in ¨Como¨(Italy) where is shot part of the scenarios and the picture has been produced by Steven Soderbergh and the same Clooney.
Actors's interpretation is nefarious and awful : Brad Pitt does as Brad Pitt , and specially : Bruce Willis plays as Willis and Julia Roberts plays as Julia Roberts . Atmospheric musical score by saga ordinary , David Holmes . Colorful cinematography with luxurious interior scenarios , nicely photographed by the same , as usual, Soderbergh . Steven Soderbergh direction is mediocre , being lavishly produced by the ordinary ,Jerry Weintraub . The first part ¨Ocean's Eleven¨(2001) is much better than its sequels , being followed by ¨Ocean's thirteen¨ (2007) and with similar cast , technician team and direction . The flick will appeal to Ceorge Clooney and Brad Pitt fans. Rating: nearly to classify as turkey .
