  • Summary: What are the odds of getting even? Danny Ocean (Clooney) and the gang would have only one reason to pull off their most ambitious and riskiest casino heist -- to defend one of their own. But they're going to need more than luck on their side to break The Bank. (Warner Bros.)

  1. In a world ruled by process, is compassion still real? Or is it just another scam? In Ocean's Thirteen, it is deviously, and merrily, both.
  2. Reviewed by: Mark Bell
    An over-the-top celebrity cartoon of cool and a tilt-a-whirl of fun.

    Brad Pitt doesn't really act in Ocean's Thirteen, he just glides through the third chapter in Steven Soderbergh's heist-flick annuity on the magic carpet of his own unimpeachable cool. Don't knock it. Genuine star power is rare. Pitt has it in spades -- all aces.
  4. This time, in a clever script by Brian Koppelman & David Levien (who wrote the poker drama "Rounders"), the heist is for friendship.
  5. 63
    Ocean's Thirteen proceeds with insouciant dialogue, studied casualness, and a lotta stuff happening, none of which I cared much about because the movie doesn't pause to develop the characters, who are forced to make do with their movie-star personas.
  6. 58
    For all its attempts at wrinkles and surprises and sleight-of-hand, Ocean's Thirteen is too direct and plain and pleased with itself to ever feel like a thriller.
  7. 20
    See it if you must, but don't forget to pack the Air Wick. These breezy doings are mustier than a Glitter Gulch casino at 4 a.m.

    After a disappointing Ocean's 12, 13 retains the charm and fun of the original.

    Every few years, to get out of the weight of Syriana, The Good Shepherd and Babel, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt get together with Elliott Goiuld, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle and make a movie with no serious undertones or political issues but just a good ol' rat pack perfect heist movie. O.K., so it's not art, but I'll tell you what it really is- it's FUN! 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

    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. Expand

    I feel as if Soderbaugh was somewhat upset and insulted at the criticism of "Ocean's Twelve", so he went out and made "Ocean's Thirteen" as a direct response. "Ocean's Twelve" is clearly exaggerating its style over substance, as well as making a complex plot without explaining fully what was going on, whereas "Ocean's Thirteen" is shallow, boring, dumb, and almost Michael Bay-like. The plot is so pointless that it's a wonder why they didn't just scrap it and show Clooney and Pitt in funny costumes making silly faces. I feel bad for Soderbaugh as I was one of the only people who really liked "Ocean's Twelve" and he may have made a statement with this lesser sequel. Expand

    Lots of talented actors--but a weak and uninteresting story line. There's nothing there to make you want to see this movie.Even the soundtrack was dull.Aside from my wife and I , the theater was empty. There's no good word-of-mouth on this film, and now I know why. Expand
