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
Ellen Barkin, who would play Abigail Sponder in the sequel Ocean's Thirteen (2007), actually shot a small cameo for this film. It was ultimately cut. It can however be seen on the Blu-ray release (under the additional footage section, the "Meet the Team, Again" sequence). See more »
When Danny meets Toulour, Toulour explains why he ratted Danny and the others out to Terry Benedict. He says that when La Marque was meeting with "a very loud and annoying American" and that he was the one "who suggested Benedict as a mark for you". Thus implying that this "loud American" had some role in setting up the Bellagio job in the first film. However, in "Ocean's Eleven", the plot hinges on Danny setting up the Bellagio score as a means to win Tess back with no mention of anyone leading Danny to the score. See more »
I just saw this much hyped film (thanks to advance publicity, including the Diane Sawyer ABC special). Too bad, I got sucked in and wasted 8 of my precious dollars. The main story is weak, and there are too many subplots which are totally unnecessary, distracting and very annoying.
It looked like the different actors of the original Ocean's 11 cut some sort of a deal with the Producers and Director whereby they were all given more screen time - there in lies the first big flaw. Second almost all of the actors didn't make any effort to deliver their characters. Often I felt that almost everyone was just reading their lines without any emotion or passion - the only exception was Catherine Zeta Jones who made a genuine effort to deliver her character of an Interpol agent. Although her various successful and magical red-handed arrests of the various team members of Daniel Ocean appeared too cheesy at times.
Julia Roberts looks tired and old in most scenes; I don't understand why she couldn't have been made more presentable using make-up etc..
My recommendation is to wait for the DVD which should be out in a month or two.
