Ocean’s Thirteen (2007)


Cast Listed Below

Directed by Steven Soderbergh

The crew is back together for one more gig, and this time they are going after Willy Bank (Al Pacino). Ocean’s Thirteen is far better that Ocean’s Twelve and a little bit below his eleven, but this movie just brings back the old cast added two more to Ocean’s Eleven, and then we see them put their skills together again in another wonderful matchup but this time against Al Pacino.

To me the thing that made this rise above and be cooler than Ocean’s Twelve is that we see the crew pull off a great heist against another casino owner and unlike Ocean’s Twelve, we actually see it get done and not dragged to the end to discover that they have done it already, like Twelve led us.

In addition to the old Ocean’s Eleven crew which is composed of:

1.       George Clooney as Danny Ocean
2.       Bernie Mac as Frank Catton
3.       Brad Pitt as Rusty Ryan
4.       lliott Gould as Reuben Tishkoff
5.       Casey Affleck as Virgil Malloy
6.       Scott Caan as Turk Malloy
7.       Eddie Jemison as Livingston Dell
8.       Don Cheadle as Basher Tarr
9.       Shaobo Qin as "The Amazing" Yen
10.   Carl Reiner as Saul Bloom
11.   Matt Damon as Linus Caldwell

The crew then recruited the help of a technical expert Roman Nagel (Eddie Izzard) and their old enemy Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia).

This is what led to the new recruitment and the calling back together of the old team.
Reuben went into a casino deal with Willy, although everyone he knew warned him not to, he believed that since both Willy and he had one time shock Sinatra’s hand (meaning they have been around for a long time and should have mutual respect for each other) that Willy won’t screw him, but Willy screwed him and Reuben almost died of shock.

Danny now pissed at Willy went to meet him and told him to refund Reuben’s money back or else… but Willy refused causing Danny to call back his whole crew as they now want to wreck Willy as a form of revenge. Roman was recruited for his technical expertise that will be needed against the new AI computer that monitors the casino, and Terry was needed for funding of the project.

Ocean’s Thirteen is a nice movie to end the Ocean’s series, sad though Tess Ocean (Julia Roberts) and Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones) are not present in this movie.

Ocean’s Thirteen was both a critical and commercial success and will make you desire to go find and watch Ocean’s Eleven again just to see the original crew at work. So if you have started to watch the Ocean’s series, don’t stop till you get to the end of it.
