Back in slick style, OCEAN'S TWELVE reintroduces Ocean (George Clooney) and his perfectly trained team of con men, who are determined to take on Europe. Dividing forces to hit Paris, Amsterdam, and Rome, the heist-meisters move beyond casinos to tackle new objectives, one of which involves stealing a famous painting. With OCEAN'S TWELVE, Steven Soderbergh re-teams with his high profile friends for another glamorous romp through the high-stakes underworld. Three years after Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his crew robbed Las Vegas casino tycoon Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) of one hundred sixty million dollars, Benedict has finally tracked them down. He gives them a two-week ultimatum to come up with the money or suffer the consequences. Knowing that the odds are stacked against them, the gang nonetheless heads to Amsterdam for a big heist. But what no one realizes is that ultra-smooth Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) has ulterior motives for leading the gang to Amsterdam. Turns out his former flame, Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), is living and working there tracking criminals such as Ocean and French master Francois Toulour (Vincent Cassel), better known as "The Night Fox." Threatened by the universally admired eleven, Toulour challenges Ocean to a dangerous museum heist that will either make or break the gang once and for all. It's up to Tess Ocean (Julia Roberts) to fly into town and bail the boys out of trouble. Every frame of OCEAN'S TWELVE is bursting with gleeful energy, as is the film's soundtrack, provided by acclaimed musician David Holmes.
My sister has Ocean's 11, and has never had the opportunity to see Ocean's 12 or 13. At the first chance I saw at getting 12 and 13, I leaped at it. But of course I had to watch the movie before giving it to her.
Ocean's 12 is a slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww movie unlike its predecessor. It builds up and it's like as if there is no escalating moment to a grand theft in process because everyone is getting caught and uncaught. And of course you'd have to be a math whiz to keep up with the days of the week since it bounces all over the place. So if it comes to plot unfolding, this movie is a dud.
But of course, some movies are not at all about plot but about the characters. In this movie you'll find a majority of the first cast, including the yummy boys Clooney, Pitt, Mac, Garcia and many more. New cast members are introduced like Zeta Jones and the Night Fox. They're always nice to look at on screen.
Basic Plot: Terri Benedict blackballs the gang from doing any business in the states. So the gang goes international. Their only problem now is a local hero called the Night Fox who completes the job before them. In a battle to know who is best at the business of theft, the Night Fox and Oceans 12 battle it out to get a crown jewel, a fancy looking egg. Who is the best? Watch it to find out.
So if you're looking for a long night ahead of you, and want eye candy without having a juicy plot unfolding, this movie is for you.
I didn't think anything could follow the first Ocean's movie. It wasn't done in Vegas and it wasn't about gambling. Nonetheless, it was a great movie. It wasn't anything I expected, but I did enjoy it immensely. The cast was amazing. George Clooney at his best. This role was made for him. I can't wait for Ocean's 13. This is one movie that I really look forward to the sequels. Most of the time after 2, I get bored. 13 looks like it is going to be another great one.
ALL THE OCEAN MOVIES ARE GREAT!! 5 STAR ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I ESPECIALLY LOVE THAT JULIA ROBERTS PLAYS IN THIS MOVIE! ALONG W/ BRAD PITT AND GEORGE CLOONEY. : )~
I bought this DVD, because I really enjoy watching George Clooney act. I was expecting to be a bit let down, because the "sequels" usually lose something, and I had just re-watched Ocean's Eleven.
I was pleasantly surprised. Ocean's Twelve lost nothing! It is an excellent movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Almost as good as the first one. This movie is funny, it's action packed (although, not as egde-of-your-seat-ish as Ocean's 11), but it is still a thriller. Catherine Zeta Jones makes a good addition to the cast.
Wanted this movie. Got it at a great price. And it works perfectly. Always love shopping on Ebay, it is easy and the price is great for items that are still like new.
really cool movie here, real slick story line to it, not as good as the first "ocean's eleven" but still is a very good movie. Make sure you watch ocean's eleven before you watch this movie or it wont make too much sense.
I wanted this movie so.....I just bought it. What's not to like about it? It's got Brad Pitt and George Clooney. I loved all the Oceans movies. ;0)
The Oceans series is an execptionally original series. I was only missing Oceans 12 and now that I am a proud owner of the whole series, I am complete. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and the rest of the cast is phenomenal throughout.
