    Default Ocean's Twelve

    Just watched it. Terrible movie. Boring. Hard to follow. Poorly edited. Waste of talent. Much worse than the previous one.

    wow, the first negative review I've heard yet. I was thinking of blind buying it tomorrow but I might wait now. Everyone I know said the plot was kinda weak but the character's meshed well together.

    All I've heard is negative reviews. I wouldn't blind-buy this one.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    If...
    Ron dislikes a film = go out and buy it.
    Ron loves a film = don't even rent.

    Well, that was part of the problem with the movie -- it was devoid of any real action. At least in the first movie it was interesting how they pulled off the heist, but this one just dragged on for two hours. After a while I heard my sub snoring.

    A great cast with nothing to work with. I dug the first one, but this movie is truly painful to watch. Keep the morhpine handy.:(

    Thanks for the warning. I was planning on picking it up tonight, but now I think not. I'll pick something from the rack at home.

    I really liked Ocean's 11. My wife and I have watched it multiple times(our favorite "together" movie).

    I just liked how a lot of seemingly complicated subplots all seemed to work out. Everything was just very well directed.

    I would rather play with my screaming baby than watch the second one again.

    Rented this "sleeper" last night. Literally fell asleep after 1/2 hour. What a waste of $4.25.

    I agree, my wife and I both like the first one alot. We liked Ocean's 12 but not as well as the first. We just like the quirkiness between the cast. They all work well together.

    I must be the only person on this board that liked it....

    got done watching it. Not bad... a little dry but the acting and chemistry between them all was a lot of fun. Plot was rushed and extremely blotchy. Some stuff was explained well, others were left without a clue. Again, not bad. Worth a view but definitely not an own.

    Oceans Blow. Sharks and bad movies. One more reason to stay away from 'Oceans'.

    I thought the first one was great. The chemistry between Pitt and Clooney was very good as was the story. Ive been an Andrew Garcia fan ever since The Godfather III.

    However this one wasnt as good. A little too hard to follow. And it had a little too much julia roberts in it as well. I can only tolerate her in small doses.

    Garcia was annoying in this one. He seemed like a pimp with a cane and it just didn't follow his character. The whole movie seemed "rushed."

    The first one is a well done remake IMO, muted vintage feel, casual yet tactile plotline development....but this one has zero flair and doesn't flow very well.

    It was ok and my wife got her George Clooney fix....so I'm off to bed wearing my mask again.

    Bad movie, bad...

    11 was entertaining.

    12 was insulting.

    I like it. I should've been more patient with the DVD though I guess they weren't too happy with the Box Office results to include Features.

    Not cookie cuttered to the others in the series, some serious acting and interplay going on. It was better than I expected after reading some of the previous posts. I did watch though while I was wide awake.
