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 makes an appeal on behalf of Reuben Tishkoff by telling Willy Bank "What I want, what's most important to me..." This is the same line that that Michael Corleone uses when making an appeal for his father's safety to Virgil "The Turk" Sollozzo in The Godfather (1972). Al Pacino plays both Willy Bank and Michael Corleone. See more »
Livingston getting busted by the "FBI" was not planned by the crew; Livingston specifically requests this be kept secret from the rest of the crew. When he is arrested and Willy Bank decides to test his fingerprints for known associates, the crew is surprised and Basher is forced to impersonate an stuntman to distract Bank. If the bust was planned, the crew should have planned for Bank to test the fingerprints (or they should have used gloves when handling the equipment). Livingston had secretly enlisted the help of Roman Nagel (Eddie Izzard) and Agent Caldwell (Bob Einstein). See more »

'Ocean's Thirteen' marks the end of the Ocean's trilogy in a good way.
It's slightly below the level of 'Ocean's Eleven' but does better 'Ocean's Twelve'. As with the preceding two, the cast elevate these films up with strong performances from George Clooney & Co. In regards to O13, I feel the plot is a tad drawn out though it does deliver by the end with its entertaining outcome.
