Ocean's Eleven & Twelve are loosely based on the 1960 rat-pack's entertaining escapades. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) plays a silky smooth con man fresh out of jail & up to a new scheme of tricks. This time it's 3 Las Vegas casinos, whose vault is filled with hundreds of millions of dollars that he & ten more thieves are planning to rob. Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), owns all three casinos with a particular bent on security. He's dating Tess (Julia Roberts) who is Danny's (Clooney's) ex-wife. You think Danny's got a beef with Terry?
The crew of con men consist of: card shark Ryan (Brad Pitt), pick-pocket Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon), demolition specialist Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle), corrupt casino dealer Frank Catton (Bernie Mac), drivers & shape-shifters Virgil & Turk Malloy (Casey Affleck & Scott Caan), surveillance nerd Dell (Eddie Jemison), veteran grifter Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner), Reuben Tishkoff (Elliot Gould), moneyed former casino owner, & Benedict (Shaobo Qin), a Chinese acrobatic Yen whose talent for bending in half becomes a key part of the heist's effectiveness.
The original Ocean's Eleven was classic due to the famous appeal of Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, & Frank Sinatra -- the original rat pack.
Steven Soderbergh directs a brilliantly cast host of Hollywood stars. Screenwriter Ted Griffin took a heap of license with the original script, updating it, I feel, for a better shows than the originals.
I purchased this product for my college room so I'd have something to do with friends. This is a great crime series, and it's even better that I was able to purchase 2/3 movies in the trilogy at once. Frankly, if you see one, you have to see the other two, it just makes sense. Cloony and company are a great cast of characters who put together a genius heist at any time, any place.
excellent movies enjoyed them very much this trilogy would be an excellent addtion to anyone's collection.
