Our Score
A gang of wily women goes after a legendary diamond necklace at the Met Gala in this all-female spin-off from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy. Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the sister of George Clooney's Danny, who reunites with her right-hand woman (Cate Blanchett) on release from prison so they can assemble a crew for a spectacular heist. Ocean's 8 emerges sufficiently from its predecessors' shadow by virtue of the inspired casting (Anne Hathaway, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter all feature). It's less self-satisfied, while cameos are fleeting and not necessarily from who you'd expect. Bullock provides a steely, edgy centre and Blanchett inhabits the super-cool sidekick with no sign of any double Oscar-winner ego. The antics are as ingenious as they are preposterous and the film strikes many of the right feminist-fuelled notes. Perhaps it coasts too heavily on the novelty of women banding together to steal stuff. And if the script could have done with a touch more sass and the direction from Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) a little more distinction, the cast are divine and the overall effect is entertainingly empowered.

Summary

Following in the footsteps of brother Danny, light-fingered Debbie Ocean plans to steal the Toussaint, a $150million necklace from Vogue's Met Gala, with the `help' of a famous actress. Crime caper, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Mindy Kaling.
