    This is the weak second film - we all know they're not going to win Oscars, but the setting wasn't Vegas, which meant it wasn't as much fun. The first and the third are the most entertaining. 6 years 10 months ago

    Where Ocean's Twelve fails is that it takes away one of the things that made Eleven a success, and goes too far with another. Part of the magic of Eleven was that Ocean's crew took a huge gamble, and it paid off and they didn't get caught. Well, so we thought. Twelve destroys this notion, and almost acts as a critique of the first film more than a sequel. It shows us the downside of the crew's original crime, creates tension between the characters, and takes them away from Vegas. Somehow, the film manages to make Amsterdam and Rome look grotty, because the slick, cool look is also gone in favor of washed out, edgy camera work. One of the good things about Eleven was that the actors were obviously having a lot of fun. This, they take too far, and we're left with a lot of fat on the steak, improv scenes that go nowhere, and by the time Julia Roberts' character is asked to impersonate Julia Roberts, we know everyone is just taking the piss. Don't get me wrong, it's still a perfectly fine entertainment, but it doesn't have as solid a structure or as resonant an ending as the previous film did. 2 years ago
