Ocean’s Twelve (2004)


(Listed below)

Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Oceans Twelve is not half bad but not that great either, but by the time you get to the end of the movie you feel so angry and bad as you have just come to realize that all the action and all the buildup that occurred in the middle was just a waste of your time.

The movie added a twist that made it look like you the viewer should have just fast forwarded to the end of the movie to see what the movie was all about. The Ocean’s crew again was at it again, but this time the Terry Benedict (Andy García) is in on their game as he locates all eleven members of Danny Ocean's (George Clooney) gang, and demanded that they return the $160 million they stole from his casinos plus $38 million interest.

The Ocean’s crew now short the money that they stole from Benedict, have to come up with another heist to be able to make up for the money that they stole from him. The movie is called Ocean’s Twelve because of the inclusion of one more person to the crew, Julia Roberts joined in the gang, so as to be able to help make up the money for the crew.

The Ocean’s Eleven still remained the same from the first movie:
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
And then
12.   Julia Roberts as Tess

The movie also has Julia Roberts as Tess playing herself in the movie, as part of the plot to get the money they needed back.
The movie lacks the grace that made the first film a masterpiece and here the crew also get to go up against another thief called The Night Fox, who wants to prove to Ocean that he is the best thief that there is.

The movie was a box office success, making 3 times its production cost.

Ocean’s Twelve is not that good, but the thing that gets me is that Ocean’s Thirteen that was done 3 years after and it was magnificent, making both the first and the last the only ones in the trilogy worth seeing.
