Overview

A rag-tag group of con artists and ex-cons team up for the heist to end all heists in this high-profile remake of the 1960 Rat Pack favorite. As with its predecessor, Ocean's Eleven opens with its titular hero Danny Ocean (George Clooney stepping into the Frank Sinatra role) eager for a new challenge. The similarities to the original end there, as Ocean conspires with his old pal Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) to rob 150 million dollars from an underground vault that serves three of Las Vegas' biggest casinos. Between the two of them, they recruit nine other men, each with his own criminal specialty, to assist in the mission: moneyman Reuben Tishkoff (Elliot Gould), card dealer Frank (Bernie Mac), pickpocket Linus (Matt Damon), aging con artist Saul (Carl Reiner), British explosives pro Basher (Don Cheadle), techie Dell (Eddie Jemison), rude-boy brothers Virgil (Casey Affleck) and Turk (Scott Caan), and professional acrobat Yen (Shaobo Qin). What Ocean doesn't tell the group is that there's another reason he's coordinating the heist: the three casinos they're robbing are all owned by ruthless gambling mogul Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), who just happens to be married to Ocean's former love Tess (Julia Roberts). Ocean's Eleven was updated by scribe Ted Griffin and marked the third feature shot by director Steven Soderbergh under the alias Peter Andrews.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A remake of the breezy 1960 caper film that featured Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack buddies, this Ocean’s Eleven offers equal star power, lavishes more directorial attention on the Big Heist, and is even more entertaining than the original. George Clooney is perfectly cast as the titular trickster, Danny Ocean, a paroled con man determined to rob the wealthy casino owner Andy Garcia who’s taken up with his ex-wife, Tess Julia Roberts. To pull off the complicated robbery, he recruits some individuals with highly specific talents, among them Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Carl Reiner, and Elliott Gould. Their painstaking preparations consume a big chunk of the film’s running time, and director Steven Soderbergh Erin Brockovich devotes even more footage to the heist and its aftermath. But he realizes that Ocean’s Eleven, like its predecessor, isn’t just about a smash-and-grab job -- it’s about being cool, and to that end the director is extremely punctilious about the movie’s stylized settings, costumes, and music. The script sparkles with wry throwaway lines, and the actors convey a sense of fun that’s definitely infectious. Nobody will ever confuse this spirited romp for high art, but for a great way to pass a couple of hours we can’t think of anything better. Soderbergh provides a full-length commentary for the DVD, and Pitt, Damon, and Garcia throw in their two cents as well. Additionally, the DVD sports an HBO First Look featurette, a brief behind-the-scenes documentary called The Look of the Con, interviews with other members of the cast and production team, three different theatrical trailers, and DVD-ROM content.
All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Cool, calm, collected, and low-key -- almost to a fault -- director Steven Soderbergh's starry remake of 1960's plodding Rat Pack vehicle may be little more than a muscle-stretching exercise for the newly minted Oscar-winner, but at least it's an audience-pleasing one. Ocean's Eleven is a hodgepodge of some of the director's pet influences: the deft multi-character juggling of Robert Altman, the just-the-facts policier technique of Jules Dassin or Francois Truffaut, and even some of the high-gloss pyrotechnics of David Fincher or John McTiernan. In many ways, it's Soderbergh's least distinctive film: the casual explosions, rag-tag rapport, and only-in-the-movies plot conveniences are just a notch away from the territory of the director's one-time nemesis Jerry Bruckheimer. Where he makes the material his own is in the casting -- this motley crew is more geek than chic, and they all play off each other incredibly well -- and in the zippy dissection of the complex heist. So while Ocean's Eleven isn't as funny or as involving as it could be -- in other words, it's not Out of Sight Part II -- watching Soderbergh spin his wheels is still more enjoyable than just about anything out there.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Made with so much wit and brains and dazzle and virtuosity that the sheer speed and cleverness of the caper hits you like a shot of pure oxygen.
New York Times
For those not so taken by the star power, this new Ocean's Eleven is the equivalent of a domineering team you can't stand that enters the Super Bowl. Even if you don't like the players, the odds are so good that it's tough to bet against them. Elvis Mitchell

    Acting At Its Best !

    What else do I have to say? You have this generations best actors in a classic movie remake that achieved the almost impossible task of being better than the orignal.

    An excellent movie to add to your collection...

    ...this is a DVD for your collection. You can just watch it again and again and it is like watching it for the first time. All-Star cast with a far-fetched storyline, but it just sucks you right into the plot and you get wrapped up in the action. I would recommend watching the original with Sinatra/Sammy Davis - RatPack first, and then watch this version. The ending throws you for a major league curve ball in the original version. This version takes you on a roller-coaster ride right down to the ending. 5 Stars. Good Luck in Vegas! - Chad Castorina

    Fabulous

    After all the horrible reviews, and the fact that the first version of Ocean's 11 was so horrible, I didn't expect much from this film, boy was I in for a surprise. The chemistry between Clooney and Pitt is remarkable. Bernie Mac was outstanding. Julia Roberts was a bit bland, but her roll was so small and insignificant that it really didn't take away from the film. I have never been a fan of Brad Pitt, but I hope to see him and Clooney on screen together again. I've watched this movie 3 times now and each time I pick up on something I had previously missed.

    Light entertainment at its best!

    Stellar casting and the glitzy and oppulent backdrop of Las Vegas makes this a must-see. The light and easy comaraderie between George Clooney's and Brad Pitt's characters is a delight, as are practically all the performances (with the exception of a too-icy Julia Roberts). Can Danny Ocean (Clooney) really pull off the heist of three prominent Las Vegas casinos with a little help from his band of eleven slightly offbeat cohorts? Sit back, enjoy and find out!

    A Great Remake

    I usually don't like remakes but this one is great! My family and I watched both the original and the new version and agreed that this will become part of our collection.

    Entertaining and light-hearted

    It is refreshing to see a movie that is entertaining and not so caught up in itself with trying to be cool or clever all the time. Slick performances from a great cast, a fun story which was well produced. The slightly choppy feel gave the movie some pace and the dialog was good. Sit back and enjoy the movie!

    Doesn't Live Up to the Hype

    This movie is no better on DVD than it was in the theater. It's not a bad movie;it's not great either. Lots of star-power but as an ensemble they don't work real well. The story is OK but sometimes slow. If you have time to kill this is worth watching but is not a really good film. Still, it's better than the original.

    Well made movie

    This is one of the best movies of 2001. It has it's funny moments and it's dramatic moments. The sheer power of Steven S's great direction keeps this movie going. You seem to never get tired. The plot twists and performance(s) of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Andy Garcia makes this movie great. But don't forget Bernie Mac.

    Fantastic! Funny! Fabulous!

    Wow! What a fantastic movie! I previously saw the old version with the incomparable Mr. Sammy Davis, Jr. and the superlative Mr. Francis Sinatra, and so I must say, I did not expect much. What a wonderful surprise to discover that the new version has gutted the old, and has come back sizzling, with snappy clothes and lots of sass! This film is a sumptious feast for the eyes and spashes the glitz of Vegas around like it was going out of style. This movie is A MUST SEE, so butter your popcorn and turn out the lights 'cuz your in for some real action tonight!

    OCEAN'S ELEVEN RULES

    Ocean's Eleven was the best movie I saw in 2001. Then again I'm a fifteen year old girl who thinks that Matt Damon and Brad Pitt are the cutest guys on the planet. The movie was absolutely awsome. If you are going to see it for the first time watch it with a friend who also hasn't seen it.
