The exceptionally rare remake that is vastly superior to the original.
A great entertainment - and you know how much I like the heist and con genres - that shows Soderbergh's prowess at 1) assembling an all-star cast and 2) making all the pieces fit. The heist/con focused on robbing three casinos really is a puzzle, and we're given the pieces just right. Las Vegas is a perfect setting, all glitz, just like the cool, cool cast and slick camera work. Soderbergh does it one better by turning the epilogue into an Old Hollywood moment (or series of moments) that pays just the right tribute to the Rat Pack and the days when the original (Ocean's 11) was made.
Smooth and deft, with a beautifully complex heist scene that made me rewind for half an hour. The characters are fairly two dimensional but who cares? We came for the star power and surprises. This delivers.
