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
