    saw it this weekend. i've heard alot of people say they didn't like it, but these were also teh kind of people who don't like anything that isn't exactly following the hollywood formula. i thought it was clever, though hard to follow from jumping around a bit too much.

    thoughts?

    I thought it was pretty entertaining. I could have done w/o the Julia Robers aspect of the movie though.

    I got a smile out of the Julia Roberts bit. I didn't see it coming.
    I enjoyed the movie, but it didn't feel nearly as smooth as 11.

    For what its worth, I thought it was a highly entertaining movie, which is why I watch movies after all. The Julia Roberts thing, although slightly predictable, was pretty funny. I agree that Oceans 11 was better, but props to the whole crew for throwing together a good sequal.

    since my opinion didn't change since last time i watched it, i'll just quote myself.


    I seriously felt like couple of ppl sat there all night brainstorming the plot with as many stupid twists as possible. Then gave it to soderbergh (who i believe is talented director) who made those twists as confusing as possible.

    I liked Ocean's Eleven a lot. This (O's twelve) was smthn that bunch of rich uninspired ppl do to make more money.

    agreed, Ocean's 12 just had too many plot twists. It got silly after a while.

    I agree. It was a great movie, but 11 was better.

    I have only seen the first half. I am going to finish it tonight. So far I really like it, I think the script is good. It sounds like it may fall apart in the second half though.

    yeah.. its an entertaining movie, but it doesnt deserve any awards.

    Ocean's 11 everything went together to 1 final goal, everything that happened happened for a specific reason... 12 was just a big clusterfuck.

    Currently looking.....Cali looks real nice right n
    I liked it a lot, different....focused more on Brad Pitts charcater rather than George Clooney's charcter (funny the name is OCEANS 12, not Rusty's 12).

    But it was good to see the whole gang again....

    I posted on this movie after I had seen it in the theater, and I hated it. But now, I got to see it again on DVD, and wow, what a difference! I have gone from hating it, to really fucking hating it. I would like to congradulate the asshats who produced this movie. I really enjoyed the first, it is one of my favorites. But this, this is horrible. I liked the whole dancing through the lasers scene - the first time. The story was not that great, the acting was not that great, and the Julia Roberts thing... are you kidding me? Thats all I've got to say about that.

    I liked it, but it had absolutely nothing on the original, this was too big of a clusterfuck.

    oceans 11 is one of my favorite movies ever

    oceans 12 is entertaining but not original or witty in any way, just the average predictable movie, but has so many good actors it's still fun enough to watch.

    12 is not the new 11. 11 was better. mat damon, one of my favorite actors, was more annoying than i would prefer, but the movie was good. the julia roberts bit was funny & bruce willis was a great addition to the movie. i thought it sucked that the whole thing is just a hoax & the audiance is like :wtf: at the end of the movie. i like to be in on it, you know what i mean? :squint:
