After pulling off the heist of their lives, Danny Ocean and his pals unexpectedly find themselves back in harness in this sequel to 2001's blockbuster hit Ocean's Eleven. After robbing a cool $160 million from the Bellaggio Hotel Casino and winning back his former wife, Tess (Julia Roberts), from Bellagio owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is living quietly on the lam in Connecticut when he's unexpectedly approached by Benedict. It seems Benedict has tracked down Danny and the ten men who helped him pull off the seemingly impossible robbery, and Benedict offers them a proposal -- if they can repay the $160 million in two weeks, he won't have them killed. As it turns out, both Danny and his best friend, Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt), haven't been doing so well in terms of money management and could use some cash, so they set out to plan a robbery to recover the loot, with the same crew helping out -- Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon), Frank Catton (Bernie Mac), Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle), Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner), Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould), Livingston Dell (Eddie Jemison), Yen (Shaobo Qin), Virgil Malloy (Casey Affleck), and his brother Turk (Scott Caan). Danny and Rusty discover that an incredibly rare Fabergé egg is being displayed at a museum in Rome which would fetch the price they need, but they soon discover a notorious cat burglar, François Toulour (Vincent Cassel), is also after the egg, and it turns into a race to see who can claim it first. Adding to the intrigue is Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a woman Rusty used to be involved with who is now a top agent with Interpol and is after both Toulour and Ocean's crew. Shot on location in both the United States and Europe, Ocean's Twelve was, like its precursor, directed by the stylish Steven Soderbergh, who also photographed the picture under his nom de lens, Peter Andrews.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Steven Soderbergh, a talented filmmaker known for alternating small, arty films with more commercial projects, finally hit the box-office jackpot in 2001 with the star-studded remake of the Rat Pack favorite Ocean’s 11, so a sequel was inevitable. Soderbergh successfully reunites the entire Ocean’s Eleven cast and adds several other stars who sweeten the celebrity pot. Like its predecessor, Ocean’s Twelve is a lighthearted caper flick that relies to a great extent on the interaction of its cast members, and the movie’s more about that chemistry than the caper itself. Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), the casino owner whom Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his ten partners ripped off in the first film, has tracked the gang down, and he gives them two weeks to repay -- with interest -- the money they stole from him. In desperation, the thieves head for Europe to stage heists that will net them the required amount. What they haven’t counted on is competition from a master thief known only as the Night Fox (Vincent Cassel) and the tenacity of Interpol investigator Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who is determined to apprehend them. Ocean’s Twelve unfolds in Amsterdam, Rome, and Paris, affording picturesque backdrops for the ingenious thefts planned by Danny and his crew. As Danny’s wife, Tess, Julia Roberts -- whose part in the first film was largely decorative -- takes a larger role this time around, thanks to a clever gambit that draws her into the largest of the planned heists. Bruce Willis plays himself in an extended cameo, and Soderbergh favorite Albert Finney pops up as well. The ridiculously convoluted story holds together, if only by a thread. But that hardly matters, because it’s evident from the first reel that the cast is having a great time. In fact, Ocean’s Twelve is one of the most self-aware movies we’ve seen in many moons, and the in-jokes speed by like Vespa scooters. It basically dares the viewer to have as much fun as the onscreen participants -- a challenge that's easy to accept.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
At the end of The Player, Robert Altman got Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts to spoof their status as the biggest box-office draws of the time. Fifteen years later, Steven Soderbergh uses the same two stars in order to skewer celebrity culture as a whole. The post-modern finale dovetails nicely with the frisky formalist games that director Steven Soderbergh likes to play, but Ocean's Twelve is easily his least substantial film to date. That does not mean it is not entertaining. The large cast obviously had a blast working together and making the film. While that often leads to finished films that alienate audiences who are not allowed to be in on all the fun that must have been happening when the cameras stopped, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and everyone else all care more about their careers than their status as celebrities. They surely enjoy the perks of fame; there is no need for this film to exist other than for this collection of actors to revel in hanging out with celebrity friends. However, they fully comprehend how fluid their fame is, and therefore they do appreciate the audience. The viewer is put in the position of being in on the joke rather than having the joke played on them. With lesser talent, Ocean's Twelve might have come off as a crass attempt to cash in, but the first-rate crew and cast turn the film into a good-humored exercise in style over substance.

The moive makes absolutely no sense. A slap in the face to the original production. This one is a group of arrogant actors laughing at the public that spends money on this movie. Run from this movie, buy something else.

You know how they say that sequals are never as good as the original? In some cases, that's not true. Unfortunatley, it is in the case of Ocean's Twelve. In all fairness, I probably wouldn't be so critical if Eleven hadn't been so darn outstanding. The acting in Twelve isn't bad at all- actually, the actors are so casual in some scenes that it feels more like a conversation than a script. However, the plot brings the entire movie crashing down. There are so many gaps and holes in the storyline that it isn't really a storyline at all. I pride myself as being one who can pick up on plots right away, but this one stumped me. Also, there are several 'inside' jokes that are never explained. For example, Danny Ocean repeatedly refers to someone breaking "Rule #1." And what exactly IS this Rule #1? The world may never know... However, the music is great, and the cast is fantasic. There are some scenes in this movie that are fun, even if not fully understandable- I loved the part when the mysterious thief known as the Night Fox literally dances his way through a complex and unpredictable labyrinth of lasers. Another great scene is when George Clooney, proudly sporting his New York Yankees hat, engages in an all-out brawl with someone wearing a Boston RedSox cap. :)

It was a little light on the storyline and Julia Roberts could have looked better, but I loved it! The scenery was spectacular! No wonder George Clooney loves Laglio!

If you're interested in a movie that actually goes somewhere, then pass on this. There's not much here. It's merely a romp for the CAST of Oceans 11 who got back together to do a sequel, but didn't spend too much time worrying about the result. They play pranks on themselves, laugh, and goof off, while a series of nonsensical scenes are strung together around a not-too-logical heist- all to pay back the guy whose money they stole in the first movie (?). The director apparently didn't care too much about the product either and let the gang do pretty much anything they wanted on set. The dialogue sounds like it as well. There is, however, one item worth noting, an irony of sorts: it's Julia Roberts playing herself. Now I usually argue that Roberts is incapable of playing anything other than variations of herself, but this time she actually does just that- she plays herself! It's another one of the gags the cast obviously enjoyed pulling, but I wonder if she realizes how much the joke is on her. The European locations give this flick a little essence, but that's about it. It's essentially a feast for the stargazer (add Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bruce Willis to the rest) but no more. So, unless you just want to see the Hollywood celebrities giggle at themselves, like I said: skip it.

Sorry, but I just couldn't get into the groove with this sequel. Too many stars spoil the broth and make dead-end sequels.

With the all star cast coming back into the characters of Ocean's 11, the story is blown on a larger scale- Europe. There's another job, and more characters. Rusty (B. Pitt) has a love interest (C. Zeta Jones); Linus (M. Damon) has a more leadership role, Tess (J. Roberts) also has a hilarious bit. A little more difficult to follow (as intended by Soderburgh for plot reasons), but just as funny or even funnier than the first. Great music again by David Holmes. Very great movie.

I loved the first (remake) of this movie and was so thrilled to hear there would be a sequel with the original cast. Unfortunately instead of developing a tight script, the filmakers opted to have no script at all - the actors seem to be making it up as they go along. While they all appear to be having fun, this is one in-joke after another. When Julie Roberts plays herself and Bruce Willis shows up the film becomes so incredibly stupid and it becomes clear this film is just for them (actors/ makers) and not for the audience. That said, the introduction of Catherine Zeta- Jones (who normally I do not like) is refreshing.

I got this movie a while ago and i thought it was pretty good, i mean, yes, i've seen better but this is FAR from a terrible movie. yeah, the story line's a little skechy and not close-knit but i still enjoyed it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Very disappointing. Oceans 11 was everything this movie was not. At least the actors seemed like they were having fun, because the plot made no sense, the editing was too chaotic in places, and the overall tone was sloppy. All in all, very disappointing.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Too seriously! How many sequels have you seen to realize that the original is still and always will be better.? The only reason I gave it one star is because they put no extras. You can't be pulling that type of sh!t anymore. People spend the extra money so they can see the extra stuff. Whats the point of wasting technology like that?
