Ocean's Twelve Review

Continuation of the re-make from the original Ocean's Eleven starring Frank Sinatra in the 60s. Andy Garcia plays Terry Benedict who's back to fulfill his promise that he will hunt down Ocean's Eleven. He finds them and is asking for his money back...with interest of course (160mil+). The bad thing is that a lot of members already spent most of their cuts and they are too hot to be doing any jobs in the U.S. Benedict gives them two weeks to come up with the money. So a meeting is called and the crew is to head off to Amsterdam to steal the money back, however they run into something they didn't quite include into their equation, the Night Fox. The Night Fox has a grudge against the Americans, because his mentor Lemark basically stated that the Americans were the best thieves in the world.

Just as Ocean's Eleven had their twist about how their theft went so does Ocean's Twelve, and some of their tricks are pretty damn good. Catherine Zeta-Jones is absolutely stunning in this one... Ocean's Twelve contains a cute little ending to watch with the ladies if you want to ;)

You can never beat an original, or Ocean's Eleven (2001) for this instance, Soderbergh pretty much matched it. It was average if you saw the first one already and you pretty much know what you're getting into.

"Ocean's Twelve" opens December 10, 2004 and is rated PG13. Comedy. Directed by Steven Soderbergh. Written by George Clayton Johnson and Jack Golden Russell (1960 story). Starring Andy Garcia, Bernie Mac, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta Jones, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Don Cheadle, Carl Reiner, Vincent Cassel, Elliot Gould, Eddie Izzard.
