John & Becky’s Movie Review of Ocean’s Thirteen

Ocean's Thirteen PosterBecky and I went to see Ocean’s Thirteen at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on Friday night. The Yahoo website at Ocean’s Thirteen describes the movie as follows:

What are the odds of getting even? Danny Ocean and the gang would have only one reason to pull off their most ambitious and riskiest casino heist–to defend one of their own. But they’re going to need more than luck on their side to break The Bank.Ruthless casino owner Willy Bank never imagined that the odds were against him when he double-crossed Danny Ocean’s friend and mentor Reuben Tishkoff

The Review
Ocean’s Thirteen is the third installment of the Ocean’s 11 series starring an all-star cast, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and many, many more.  If you have seen Ocean’s 11 and Ocean’s 12 you will want to see Ocean’s Thirteen.  It’s not a great movie, but it’s pretty fun. 

It’s a bit campy since it seems that a bunch of Hollywood buddy’s got together to make a movie.  Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that, but the odds of being able to pull off their plan to beat the casion in the way that the film claims are astronomical. It’s clever and fun, but pretty ridiculous.

Becky and I both liked it, we didn’t love it.  It’s a film that is between waiting for a rental and going to see it at the theater.  If you’re a big fan of the movie stars that are in the film and you’ve seen the other two installments than you will probably want to go to this one, but if you haven’t then you should wait for the rental.

With that in mind, I’m giving it a rental rating and Becky thought it was Worth The Trip.  Probably because it has George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon and not so much because the story is over the top.
