Synopsis
Cinema icon Al Pacino joins a powerhouse cast headed by of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, and series newcomer Ellen Barkin for this, the third installment of director Steven Soderbergh's popular series of glitzy crime comedies. The only hotelier in Las Vegas who can claim that each and every one of his establishments has earned the Royal Review Board's Five Diamond Award, Willy Bank (Pacino) has made more than his share of enemies during his impressive ascent. While most of Bank's adversaries amount to little more than the occasional nuisance, however, this powerful player is about to find out that picking your enemies in Las Vegas can be a true gamble. In betraying Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould), Bank has finally crossed the one man who could bring his entire empire crumbling to the ground -- Danny Ocean (Clooney). Now Reuben is in critical condition, and Ocean is determined to strike back at the man who nearly murdered his mentor. Bank may have taken down one of the original Ocean's Eleven, but his efforts only managed to unite the remaining ten closer than ever before. As the opening of Bank's newest casino draws near, Danny and the crew set into motion a bold plan to humiliate the cocksure casino owner and forever tarnish his spotless reputation. It won't be easy, but if Ocean and his team can get their elaborate plan together in time for the opening of The Bank, they just might be able to deliver some serious Las Vegas justice. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Better than "12" and about the level of the "11" remake, OCEANS 13, though running the usual 2 hours, seems tighter than its immediate and disastrous predecessor, due perhaps to it's taking place in a single locale--the ever lovely and tasteful Las Vegas. The gang's all here, though most of them can barely register in more than a mini scene or two, due to all the plot machinations of the "con." The addition of Pacino and Barkin as the current crop of villains does not possess the expected pizzazz: Al does his usual, without much extra help from the script, while Barkin begins as a bitch but ends up a rather sad and ill-used "cougar," as the current trendy and stupid euphemism would have it.

The women in the Ocean movies are always eminently (and imminently) disposable, which is a waste and a shame. Unfortunately, the men, though they don't seem to realize it (ah, guys!) are even more so. Fortunately all of them have recently appeared in more important, sometimes better, and certainly more interesting films. Here's a quick sampling: Clooney ("Michael Clayton"), Pitt and Affleck (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"), Affleck again ("Gone, Baby, Gone"), Damon ("The Good Shepherd"), Bernie Mac ("Guess Who" or "Mr 3000"--they're under-rated), Pacino ("Two for the Money"--another under-rated surprise), Don Cheadle ("Talk to Me" but not "Reign Over Me"), and Scott Caan ("The Dog Problem"--which he wrote, directed and co-stars in!). Watch a time-waster like any of the "Oceans," but for goodness sake, check out these other movies.
