    Witty, Inventive, and above all, Entertaining.
    Ocean's Eleven ignites with an all star cast, and a slew of impressive performances and intelligent dialogue.

    Is not the greatest movie I have seen. While its not that bad, Oceans 11 is sometimes lame and boring and the only actor, who really does a good job is brad pitt. Has a few good jokes though

    Comic timing? Chemistry between characters? I think not. What jokes there are are poor at best and the performances are laboured throughout with no feeling of genuine camaraderie to be seen. It's not even that fast paced, starting with a dire opening compilation of introductions to the 11 thieves that fails to offer anything approaching worthwhile characterisation.

The 11 members seem to be a burden as the writers have struggled to fill out all of them, tagging on nonsense with appalling London accents and supposed comedy duos. Altogether a great disappointment of a film that is slick to the Nth degree but shallow and less than exciting throughout. Shame. Expand

    Well-crafted heist movie which cheats on several key details(turning off the electrity, for example)and so fails to truly surprise or impress. Besides, the stakes are too high and the feat too outrageous even for minimum credibility, rather like David Copperfield's trick of making the Statue of Liberty disappear. Suspension of disbelief has its limits. Worse, Julia Roberts and Andy Well-crafted heist movie which cheats on several key details(turning off the electrity, for example)and so fails to truly surprise or impress.

Suspension of disbelief has its limits. Worse, Julia Roberts and Andy Garcia fare poorly as love interest and as villain. The only real heist in the movie is how Soderbergh and his associates milked the audience out of millions. Collapse

    Image "The Sting" with all the catchy scenes removed. Presto. Intricate flashy entertaining thriller, but like all Clooney flicks, no underlying substance. The cast also includes the very best of other substanceless personnel.

    "The Sting" revisited. Poor choice for $20 trip to the movies.

    This film is as entertaining as flipping through a People magazine at the dentist's office. It provides glamourous, but cling-free moving images to momentarily engage the outermost parts of your filmatic soul.

    How could a movie with a strong cast and an award winning director be so mediocre? It is not that this is a bad movie, you just expect so much more from it. It doesnt make me eagerly await Oceans 12...

    Doesn't offer much.

    The most purely entertaining movie to come out of Hollywood so far this year, and if that doesn't seem worthy of Soderbergh's talents, it's worthy enough for a night's amusement.
  3. In her byplay with Clooney, Roberts only occasionally strikes a spark. Clooney, on the other hand, generates heat.
