Plot

Set three years after "Ocean's 11," this sequel shows us Danny Ocean gathering up his complete gang of con artists and thieves from the first film in New York City before they all jet off to Amsterdam, Rome, and Paris to pull off three seperate heists. All the while, the boys must deal with increasing pressure from a very mad Terry Benedict, a dedicated Europol agent with a link to Rusty's past, and a mysterious French rival known as the "Night Fox." Will Ocean's crew reach their full potential and become the greatest thieves the world has ever known, or will they fall victim to Benedict's revenge? All bets are off. Three years after ripping off casino owner Terry Benedict in Las Vegas, Danny Ocean and his gang have settled down. Until the revenge-seeking Benedict contacts them all one-by-one with this: pay back what you stole from me, with interest, or else. They have two weeks to come up with $190 million dollars. In addition to the swiftly approaching deadline, they have to dodge tenacious Europol agent Isabel Lehiri and out-maneuver another thief known only as "The Night Fox." It all culminates in Ocean's 12 taking on the biggest heist ever...and also the biggest con! This sequel finds itself after the Ocean's 11 Las Vegas casino heist. However, now we find our characters in a hurry to do another heist because Terry Benedict (Garcia) wants his money back. However, when they get to their destination in Europe, they find that the job has already been done by a thief known as the Night Fox, who is out to prove that he's better than Danny Ocean (Clooney) and his Ocean's 11. So, now the group finds theirselves in a race against the clock to find out who can be the best theives of the world. Three years after Danny Ocean and 10 other thieves managed to steal $160,000,000 from casino tycoon Terry Benedict, they have been caught, and are left with two weeks to give back all the money they stole, plus interest over three years. Danny and his friends needs to get $190,000,000 or else they will be killed, so they plan to pull off three large-scale robberies in Paris, Rome and Amsterdam before the time is up.
 

Comments

Simply put, this is a boring movie. The strength of Ocean's 11 was that it started at point A and it ended at point B, and it did so in a convincing and entertaining matter and threw in a believable plot twist at the end. It was very simply and straightforward. Ocean's 12 is nothing like this. The film is in desperate need of a better editor, as it is so bloated and ponderous that towards the middle of the film, if you've even managed to keep track of who's stealing what from whom and why they're doing it, you won't even care any more. You'll just be begging for the ending. The film is filled with bizarre camera angles, such as a shot of an incoming airplane that for some inconceivable reason is filmed sideways. There are also some VERY bizarre scenes, such as a scene where Julia Robert's character has to pretend to be Julia Roberts, and a thief break-dances through lasers. However, the biggest flaw of the movie is the absence of a good heist scene. The heist in Ocean's 11 was masterful, and there is nothing in this film that even comes close. I didn't go to see this movie to watch a cop get reunited with her father who happens to be a master thief, I went to see a team of funny people go up against the odds to steal a lot of money. Bottom line: You will hate this movie. Don't waste your money on it.
