A Review By Joekool

Director- Steven Soderbergh
Cast- George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Don Cheadle, Cathrine Zeta Jones
Rated PG-13: for language
 
Lets skip all that opening crap and get right down to it. Ocean's Twelve matches or exceeds nearly every aspect of its predecessor, it is absolutely fantastic! Steven Soderbergh directs this film supremely, and the fact that the entire cast is back is amazing. Rarely do you see a sequal anymore where everyone returns that was in the original.
 
The screenplay is bloody brilliant. I love they named off names of the types of jobs, like "A Looky Louie." I have no idea what they are talking about, but that shows me these guys are truly experts of their thief proffesion. The humor and comedy is great, matching the humor of the first, and possibly even surpassing it. I love how the quirky type music is still entagnled in the movie, a great addition.
 
The story is great, however Ocean's Eleven's story is a little better, this story is still great and filled with excitment. The fact the they do more than one job in this is also very cool. But sometimes, you wish they would elaborate more on the preparations for the complexitiy of the task to steal whatever they were stealing. You still get everything, and they really dont need to explain more, but it was interesting in Ocean's Eleven how much detail they went into explaining the preparation.
 
Acting all around was very good. There was not one person in this movie who did an average job, everyone excelled. This film deserves a SAG nomination for Best Ensemble, probably will be overlooked though, and that is very unfortunate. I loved the Bruce Willis cameo.
 
Ocean's Twelve is absolutely awesome. A fantastic film! It is just as good as the first, and maybe just a hair better. It is a definate must see. Drop what your are doing now, I dont care what it is and go see this film. It is defiantley on my top 10 for they year.
