In this genderbent take on Ocean's 11, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), brother of Danny, is released from prison after five years and immediately assembles an all-female crew with her best friend Lou (Cate Blanchett) to stage their greatest heist: stealing a $150 million necklace off the neck of actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) at the Met Gala. Ocean must corral a jeweler (Mindy Kaling), a fashion designer (Helena Bonham Carter), a con artist (Awkwafina), a fence (Sarah Paulson) and a hacker (Rihanna) to pull off the job. Directed by Gary Ross. Richard Armitage and James Corden co-star.~Kaitlin Elise Miller
Different actors, different dynamic, different characters - but the same formula. And you know what? It works.
Every actress has a defined character, especially Bullock and Blanchett. The story is formulaic, but frankly, so were Clooney's films.
A good caper film is always fun, and this is no different. It isn't a classic like Oceans 11, but it's better than 12, and brisker than 13. I'm not sure we'll see this cast again, but I'm hoping we do.
I thought this film lived up to the expectations for fans of "The Oceans..." franchise, that dates back to when Frank Sinatra was Danny Ocean, coolest jewel thief in the business.
I think it was time there was an addition to the series using an all woman cast of thieves.
Headed by Sandra Bullock, who plays, uh, Debbie Ocean, (that could have been written a bit better), the sister of the deceased, Danny Ocean, she is just released from prison and is hatching a plan for a major heist.
The film has beautiful costumes, a fun, interesting, high and low tech heist, and must be a new record for the number of great actresses, from Rhianna, and a darling neophyte, Awkwafina, who plays a street hustler and expert pickpocket who travels on her skateboard, to women we haven't seen in ages, like Marlo Thomas, and Elizabeth Ashley. Their parts were basically cameos, but I just love the idea of them being included in the cast
Cate Blanchette, Anne Hathaway, and Sarah Paulson held the major roles, and all did a good job.
This movie is a fun romp. It's not Shakespeare, and it's not supposed to be. It's a glitzy trip, following the characters, all gifted
in their criminal specialty, or what becomes criminal, executing the elaborate plan to steal a 150 million dollar diamond necklace loaned out for the party of the year in NYC.
Good direction, editing, and beautiful cinematography, no sad parts or deaths. Just a good time at the movies on a summer night.
For the actual steelbook - the outside artwork is nothing amazing but I'm not complaining for the price I got this for (only $9!).
Movie 4k uhd was a good presentation, nothing amazing but overall a solid clean digital look. Fun movie, the GF loved it and wanted this one
I was skeptical, but this was a movie with many twists and worthy of the "Ocean's" franchise. Each lady did what they do best and the direction made that work. I still quote parts of the movie when I get the chance.
Wow first of all the casting and film was beyond amazing. It honestly was worth the watch. Yes the film had me guessing a lot. I think that's what I actually enjoyed it more. To me it wasn't a predictable movie at all. I was shocked that I would of ened up loving it. I honestly have never watched all the Ocean movies but when I saw this I was like YES! An amazing phenomenal talented cast and great film pacing. I would definitely recommend this movie for sure.
This is a fun movie lead by amazing women. Yes, it’s a rip-off of Ocean’s movie but it’s still fun to watch. These women are powerful and the heist is believable. No one dies and no hardcore actions but just fun. Really recommended for an evening of fun.
