Ocean's 11 Movie Review

Ocean's 11 Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

I almost ran to the theater when Oceans 11 opened. Its the perfect chance to see Brad, Julia, George and Matt - together. If its enough for them to take pay cuts it must be a masterpiece.

I have to admit I just about ran to the theater when Ocean's 11 opened. It was the perfect chance to see all my faves - Brad, Julia, George and Matt - in one flick. And I thought, if this movie was good enough to make them all take pay cuts so they could work together, then it must be a masterpiece.

It's no masterpiece - but it is a pretty good film. If you're a girl, it's worth it for the eye candy alone. And if you're a guy, there is no mushy romantic talk, no crying and no nasty suck-face scenes - so you'll like it too. It's about a convict, Danny Ocean (George Clooney,) who gets out of jail and decides to rob three casinos at once. Realizing it's gonna be a monster job, he rallies his old con-buddies and their friends. Each one has a special skill they can bring to the job - one's an acrobat, one's a remote control car junkie... the list goes on. It's really cool to see how the whole thing comes together.

The plot isn't action-packed at all, but relies on some pretty witty, bright and intelligent dialogue. Brad and George - who play Dusty Ryan and Daniel Ocean - are the best together. They work so well off each other's lines that you feel like they aren't lines from a script but that these two are just goofing off and someone forgot to turn off the camera.

Now, I love Julia Roberts (who plays Tess Ocean) but there was no chemistry between her and her onscreeen hubby George or her onscreen boyfriend, Andy (who plays Harry Benedict.) How is it possible not to have instant chemistry with either of these two? Matt Damon gave a great performance as well. He's just got this subtle, confused quality I found totally endearing.

The flick is worth the cash, so go see it. If you've already seen it, what you think. And did anyone else notice Brad Pitt is eating in almost every single scene he's in?

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
