IMDB: Oceans 11 – 2001
IMDB Rating: 7.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 82%
Not as exceptional as the original 1960’s version, with the original Rat Pack, as that version was purely exceptionally. They don’t make them like they used to.
Mr Ocean has just walked out of prison after 4 years, and has decided the best to re-intergrate into society is by robbing 3 Las Vegas casinos. Their targets are the Mirage, The Bellagio and the MGM Grand. They are looking to pull $150 million out of the spectacular 1 night event.
At the same time.
This is a great movie that doesn’t spend all of it’s time on the actuality of the job, and actually spends the majority of it on the planning and set up of the job itself. I feel like this isn’t the greatest movie, but it does set up the series by providing character backgrounds succinctly that will continue on through the series.
