From Amazon.co.uk

Ocean's Eleven improves on 1960's Rat Pack original with supernova casting, a slickly updated plot and Steven Soderbergh's graceful touch behind the camera. Soderbergh reportedly relished the opportunity "to make a movie that has no desire except to give pleasure from beginning to end", and he succeeds on those terms, blessed by the casting of George Clooney as Danny Ocean, the title role originated by Frank Sinatra. Fresh out of jail, Ocean masterminds a plot to steal $163 million from the seemingly impervious vault of Las Vegas's Bellagio casino, not just for the money but to win his ex-wife (Julia Roberts) back from the casino's ruthless owner (Andy Garcia). Soderbergh doesn't scrimp on the caper's comically intricate strategy, but he finds greater joy in assembling a stellar team (including Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Carl Reiner) and indulging their strengths as actors and thieves. The result is a film that's as smooth as a silk suit and just as stylish. --Jeff Shannon

On the DVD: Ocean's Eleven on disc is hardly swarming with special features, but just like all good heists it's quality not quantity that counts. Although the DVD-ROM feature is simply a game of computer blackjack, the cast list simply that and the HBO special just a standard Hollywood promo, the two refreshing and honest commentaries more than compensate. The cast commentary is lively and it's nice to hear intelligent comments coming from Hollywood's big league for a change. However, it's the director and writer's commentary that is the real gem; it's funny, enlightening and most of all it allows Ted Griffin to put the case forward for all screenwriters across the world as to the importance of their craft. The main feature has an impressive transfer of sound and visuals, making the suits sharper and David Holmes' soundtrack even funkier. --Nikki Disney

5.0 out of 5 stars Big cast, Big hit! 10 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
'Ocean's Eleven' is a stylish, cinematic delight. Merely from the all too familiar/famous cast list a would be viewer can appreciate the pure genius the directors must have to create a film that attracts the superb acting abilities of the likes of Julie Roberts, Andy Garcia and Brad Pitt. The story line involves twists and turns, coinsidences and a need to pay attention to the little details all of which make the film far more captivating than your average mind numbing films.
The class and richness of Las Vegas is all captured in the bright casino halls and the costume design all adding to the overall enjoyment.
The cast and director commentary featured on the DVD edition gives the viewer a chance to go beyond merely what they see on the screen. They allow an insight into not only the making of the film but the rapport that is clearly present between the cast and crew. There is something quite surreal abour listening to Brad Pitt and Matt Damon reminice about their time on set!
'Ocean's Eleven' is a film well worth viewing more than once, if only to pick up on small, yet often vital, details missed the first time around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is cooler than this. 2 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
As with many of this director's works, this film is all about being cool; George Clooney is cool, Brad Pitt is cool, they wear cool clothes and do cool things. There's nothing else to it; its's cool. However, it's also a very good movie to boot, and a definite improvement on the Ratpack original. The casting is impressive, with a number of A-list stars and competent support (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Matt Damon, and Don Cheadle), and they each play their parts well (not to mention being cool). The heroes are rogueish, the villain is suitably snide and smug, and the action is entertaining. It won't go down as a classic, but it's a very enjoyable, and cool, couple of hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun with Clooney & Co. 27 Oct 2003
By Jimmy VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
If you are going to do a remake of a film it is perhaps wise to ensure that the originally is not a universally loved piece, or a critically acclaimed masterpiece. Soderburgh shrewdly chose a film that was neither. The original features a daring heist by some war buddies led by Sinatra as Danny Ocean of three Vegas casinos in one night, whilst this central premise is kept, everything else is thrown out and replaced by a more coherent, slicker plot and rather than a tired looking Rat Pack we have an all star cast (Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Garcia, and a radiant looking Julia Roberts) at their very best.
The plot is simplicity itself – Danny Ocean (Clooney) forms a team of experts in their field to rob one of Vegas’s biggest casinos which holds the proceeds of three. It is this process that proves to be the most fun, as each of the eleven is introduced though a series of well thought out scenes (the best being Rusty’s (Pitt at his most effortlessly cool) attempt to lure Con artist Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner) out of retirement thanks to some crisp dialogue (“I saw you before you got out of bed this morning”). Perhaps because these are so good, it was inevitable that the heist itself would not have the same fizz, and because it is executed so neatly the tension fails to really build where it should – so it cannot be said to be in the same league as classic robbery films (see in particular Rififi, where the scenes of the robbery drip with tension). That quibble aside the film is tremendously good fun, with Soderburgh drawing excellent performances from his stellar cast and adding a professional sheen that was missing entirely from the original.
This is a great Hollywood film, we are offered nothing more here than an entertaining heist movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic film! 4 Sep 2003
Format:DVD
This up to date remake of the the rat pack classic is superbly directed and is one of the most intriguing, exciting and well acted of present day films.
The actors are so well chosen to fit their roles and the chemistry between all the charcters is brilliant, and occassionally laughable (e.g. between daniel ocean - george clooney - and rusty - brad pitt).
Being a huge george clooney fan, i can honestly say that this is one of his best performances; he makes the film come to life - the perfect lovable rogue.
Would recommend to anyone, it's easy to watch even though it has a relatively complex plot and all is revealed and explained in the end.
Fantastic film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 30 Aug 2004
Format:DVD
It's one of my most favourite movies. I remember watching it a few times in a cinema and being unable to get my eyes off a glamour of Las Vegas. Later on I bought a DVD and watched the movie a few times since then.
The first thing I thought of before writing this review was a script. I thought: "Goodness, surely I wouldn't be able to write like that!" The script-writer seems to know everything about robbing casinos! In general, the idea isn't completely new, but the strongest part of the script is all the details. The idea of a team of 11 people is superb.
The movie is also brilliantly directed - every little detail is thought over. Steven Soderbergh, the wonderful Oscar-winning director, doesn't disappoint his audience. I was sooooo impressed by the scene of entire Danny's (George Clooney) crew walking one by one after him as soon as he says: "...Otherwise come with me!"
Robbing casinos - is it a crime? Oh yeah, don't you doubt it, it's a crime all right. Tell me then, why on earth does the audience love all these criminals and sympathize them? It's not a totally new idea, but again - how well thought! Who will NOT like the unbeliavably charismatic, smart and elegant men who just want to get some money... well, not some, but a very handsome sum of money out of a ruthless casino magnat Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia)? He's most definitely more a criminal than them, and his another sin is that Danny's ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts) preferred him to Danny. Well, talking about a woman being behind every crime! Cherchez la femme!
One more brilliant thing about the movie is, no doubt, its cast. It couldn't be better. Stunningly talented actors add their glamour to all the luxury of Las Vegas. What else could the audience dream of?

Ocean's Eleven is a film that modern robberies and con artists films constantly compare themselves. In that regard it has replaced "The Sting" an equally great film. Read more
