Ocean’s Eleven 

A remake of the 1960 Rat Pack film. Recently paroled from prison, con-man and thief Danny Ocean (George Clooney) recruits a crew of former colleagues and criminal specialists to steal $150 million from 3 Las Vegas casinos in one night.

Performances are excellent from an all-star cast. George Clooney brilliantly plays the charismatic leader of the Eleven. Brad Pitt is terrific as Danny’s right-hand man Rusty. Great performances from supporting cast Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac and Julia Roberts.

Director Steven Soderbergh (Out of Sight, Traffic) and writer Ted Griffin delivers a stylish caper with a quick pace and sharp dialogue with wit. Perfectly shot and visually stunning cinematography by Soderbergh.

The movie poster tagline asks Are you in or out? After watching Ocean’s Eleven, I can say I’m in. It’s one of my favourite films. Everything about this film is perfect. One of the best remakes ever made. A great enjoyable and entertaining heist film to watch from start to finish with a well-acted ensemble cast.

Rating 5/5 Stars
