The Ocean’s franchise is among the most popular and successful movie franchises. I like it mostly because of the fact that even without using too much special effects, they can pull off an amazing movie dripping with oodles of coolness. Of course, when they need to pay for so many stellar actors, I guess they’ve hardly any money left for special effects! But Soderbergh does pull it off, with jaw-dropping camera angles which nobody even would have thought of, and a storyline that keeps you guessing.
Ocean’s 13 was released recently, I thought I’d like to see it, but after the reviews came in, I changed my mind. None of them said it was bad…but the plot didn’t appeal to me. I’d rather watch something with totally unbelievable stunts and Bruce Willis, like Die Hard 4.0. Until then though, watch the trailer of Ocean’s 40 right here… ;)
