Ocean’s 13

Ocean's 13When I watched Ocean’s 12 a few months ago, I found it fine, not great. Only later did I realize how stupid the plot was, but it didn’t really occur to me right away because one doesn’t really watch these films for plot. Though I must say this one was more thought out than its predecessor, but I found the latter more pretty only because they were in Europe. This one goes back to being solely Las Vegas with a casino oriented plot, just like the first one. Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin come for this ride, not to mention little bits from Julian Sands and Eddie Izzard (reprising). So I wouldn’t say I was a big fan of Clooney, Pitt, etc., but I don’t dislike the guys, and they honestly look like they enjoyed making this movie. I like a good blockbuster where it’s light, fun, and the cast looks like they don’t mind being there either. The cast also have chemistry which tells me they like being around each other too. It’s not the best comedy, nor the most profound, but Steven Soderbergh has his nice visual cues and editing in the movie. All in all, not a total waste of a couple of hours, and if you like these guys and accept this for what it is, it’s not bad way to spend your time.
