    It goes back to basics by bringing back the lightheartedness and wit of the first installment. Fortunately, it succeeds for the larger part of the movie.

    This movie is the second best of the series (after Ocean's 11, of course). You really don't notice the length of the movie while it's going on, because it really doesn't get boring at any point. Nor is it too packed with action, so you would become numb in the middle. There are many places to laugh in, both new jokes and some old faces showing around, so it is good if you've seen 11 and 12This movie is the second best of the series (after Ocean's 11, of course).

    A close runner up to Eleven, Ocean's Thirteen almost matches the quality of the first one, lacking a bit in certain areas. But nevertheless, it is about just as fun.

    A good threequel that works and is an enjoyable story to get back involved with. Pacino was great and so was the writing, it feels like Soderbergh didn't head-scratch or confuse you with what you think you were watching like with the last one. Here he shows more confidence and completes a pretty awesome trilogy.

It also seemed like they were able to actually give each character a fair amount of screen time whereas in the second film most seemed meaningless. There wasn't much additional development of them but they all contributed to the film in some way. As for the actual plot, it felt more genuine and not just thrown together like the last one. All in all, it almost feels like a waste to even watch the second film other than a couple of comments and a character that barely sees the screen in this movie. Expand

    A very strong cast lead by George Clooney. A very smart plot were it starts out slow but then starts to get better and then the night of the crime comes and bam the movie sky rockets. I thought Al Pacino could have done a little bit better. But for the most part it's a mastermind.

Sure its a film to go see in the theatres, see a week after it comes out after you've read all the reviews in the paper and go to the 8:00 cineplex show, then watch it in a cheap theatre really late. Then rent it the day it comes out and watch it that night. A couple of months later, get it for Christmas and watch it that night. By that time, you'll be sick of it. But you'll still enjoy it.

    Almost an exercise in how cool a movie can be and still be a movie. Soderburgh casually strips away most of what makes a "regular" movie work: coherent narrative, evolving character relationships (most of what's there is just leftovers from the first two films and the warmest interaction between characters takes place in *letters*), any sense of peril or risk.

    really good movie. Much better than the previous sequel (the worst one in my opinion). This movie came close to the level of the first (which is the best). It was genuinely clever, had a good plot and it was a lot of fun to watch.

    Lots of fun, just a good way to get into a plot and return of great characters. I missed the female leads from the first two, but this was still full of interesting scenes, analysis, and twists.

    Better than Twelve not as good as Eleven. The guys did a competent job with a focused, sometimes funny movie, but the spark is gone. I wouldn't go to watch Fourteen (if there will be one) unless it got great, great reviews across the board.

It may be far-fetched and totally implausible but knowing that the guys have every angle covered, even when it seems their busted, is just plain Fun. Considering that this is the third in a series, which has been a sure let-down so far this year, Oceans 13 is just as fun as the first one. Can't wait for 14 but it would be alot more to look forward to if they get Julia back. Expand

    This movie gets an 8 from me because I was so pleasantly surprised by it after the abyssmal Oceans 12. Perhaps it's the lack of Julia Roberts, or maybe it's because the setting is back in Vegas. But it's also fewer inside jokes and more good-natured chummy fun. Well worth seeing.

This film is appreciative of the illusion of Hollywood and Vegas itself. It's no The Red Circle or other great heist movie in that sense but it's fun and does not disappoint on taking you along for the ride and the inside jokes.

    Ocean's Thirteen was another breezy, light hearted, fun movie that shouldn't be taken too seriously but tries to be at too many places at too many times & is pretty. There were a few parts that felt a little bland, but overall it was job well done by the well rounded A-cast and I think anyone who enjoyed the previous two films (as I did) should check this out

    This one is all about the boys. But as glad as we are to see them, watching the third installment is like attending a college reunion too soon after the last one: after the initial welcome, there's not all that much to say.
