Ocean’s Twelve is the highly anticipated sequel to the hit from 2001, Ocean’s Eleven. From what I had seen in the movie trailers over the last couple of weeks, I was expecting to be disappointed. I most definately was not though. With all of the original cast coming back, this movie is a great sequel.
Ocean’s Eleven was so good that most people were expecting Ocean’s Twelve to be a box office flop. After watching the movie last night, I just don’t see that happening. For one thing, the movie has too much star power to fail. You’ve got Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Casey Affleck, and many others. They even added Catherine Zeta-Jones for this one. She sports a shorter hair style in the movie and looks hotter than ever. Truly a great addition to the cast.
I’m not going to give out any details on the plot except to mention that Terry Benedict (Garcia), finds Ocean’s crew and wants the money back that they stole from his casinos. From there, Danny Ocean (Clooney) and the guys are on a mission to find a high paying “job” to save their lives. Just like the first film, this one is full of 180s and 360s to keep you guessing up until the credits roll.
If you liked the first movie I would recommend catching this one soon. I give it an A-.
