Remake of the 1960 Rat Pack heist classic, starring George Clooney as Danny Ocean, an ex-convict with a smart new plan to rob the casinos of Las Vegas. Gathering together a crack team - including his old friend Rusty (Brad Pitt) - Danny and the boys begin the meticulous preparations necessary to carry out the complex job, with pickpocket Linus (Matt Damon), con-artist Saul (Carl Reiner) and explosives expert Basher (Don Cheadle) all playing their part. Meanwhile, Danny continues to pursue his ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts), who is currently dating the casino boss Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia). Directed by Steven Soderbergh ('Traffic', 'Erin Brockovich', 'Out of Sight').
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 DisneySee all Product Description

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.
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.Read more ›
The theme of the movie is about a small group of relatively experienced crooks and villains who decide to do the unthinkable - rob three casinos in the same night. Danny Ocean is the leader of the pack and wants to get revenge on the man who stole his wife, the man who just so happens to be the owner of these 3 casinos.
Cue a lot of action packed drama and feisty frolics as the 11 accomplices go about their arduous task of getting past the extremely high-level security which protects the casino's cash in an underground cell.
This is a good film, one that keeps you hooked in suspense from start to finish.
Oceans Eleven is a product of style, and it's a grainy style at that. While it's never going to be the sort of film that will leave you awed, it has to be said the picture is a big leap from Warner's standard DVD. It's sharper, more vibrant and picture crawl that dogged the original release is gone. A definite improvement. Picture: 3/5
The audio is again outstanding, but only a subtle improvement over the original DVD. The music mix is immersive, and drips "cool". The range has also improved and the spatial effects are more defined, especially in the casino scenes. Again, not a jaw dropping improvement, but not bad at all. Audio: 4/5
The extras are pretty much what you got the first time around on standard def, but if you haven't already bought it on DVD, they are worth the purchase. For everyone else, you should probably think twice about upgrading unless you can get the Blu-ray disc for around a fiver. Extras: 3/5
