||Danny Ocean gets the band together to rob casinoes in Las Vegas, but when the others find out that his ex-wife is now the owner’s lover they question his motives. Can he get her back and overcome the impenetrable security systems surrounding the casino vault?
||Most of the movie spent watching the team prepare for the heist in a facimile of the casino vault with asides in the casino itself as the preparations are made. A boxing match with real boxers and a real celebrity audience. Then the carrying out of the robbery itself.
||Everybody including me thought this was good fun, after all how could it fail with such a scintillating cast? Well, as we have discovered just having a star cast does not guarantee a great movie but if you have not seen it watch this. It cost a lot but made a fortune.
