I hate the Ocean’s franchise for two reasons:
- Every time I watch these movies, I feel that my wardrobe if woefully inadequate and I become very vulnerable to buying expensive clothes I’ll probably never find a reason to wear.
- I can watch an Ocean’s movie ANY TIME THEY ARE TV and it is a drain on my life. Anytime TNT or HBO run Ocean’s 11 or 12, I will watch it. It doesn’t matter what point of the movie it is. If I am not already watching something in particular, I will watch Danny Ocean and crew.
Anyway, this movie was better than second but not as good as the first. It started slow when they were setting up the plan against Pacino’s Willie Bank (probably as restrained as you’ll see Pacino) but once they start executing, it becomes fun with a lot of throwbacks to the first two films.
Don Cheadle gets the shaft that Bernie Mac got in Ocean’s 12 as the character with the least screen time. At least it spares us from one of the worst British accents in cinematic history.
