Our Score
Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven was a sharp, witty remake of a rather self-indulgent vehicle for Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack. With this sequel, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and company seem to have fallen into the same sort of trap. The lazy, convoluted plot has the smooth criminals hitting the robbery trail in Europe to raise the cash needed to pay back their vengeful last victim, casino boss Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia). Soderbergh gives the movie a hip surface sheen and there's no denying the chemistry between the starry ensemble cast, which this time includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Robbie Coltrane, Eddie Izzard and Vincent Cassel. However, Bruce Willis's hopelessly contrived cameo is pretty much symptomatic of the film as a whole - a hoot for all involved but a little too knowing for its own good.


The crooks reunite when an old enemy catches up with them and demands they repay the money they stole from him three years previously. In response, the gang comes up with another larcenous plan - but reckons without the interventions of a fellow thief and a sultry Interpol agent. Crime caper sequel, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia and Don Cheadle.
