Elevator Pitch Danny’s friend and mentor Reuben is tricked out of his share in a new hotel in Las Vegas by the devious Willy Bank, and goes into a decline. To rescue him the gang get together and take on the hotel owner, his impenetrable security system and his super efficient female assistant.
Content We see the gang members doing stuff in a variety of environments, working in a Mexican plastics factory, spiking dealing machines, operating a tunnel boring machine under the city. Meeting in darkened rooms as they deal with difficulties with the plan. And then we see it all happen. No drugs, or nudity. Just a bit of boozing and one sensual interaction.
A View Having seen the disappointing Ocean’s Twelve I did not know what to expect with Thirteen but it was great. Everyone, the general public, the critics and me enjoyed it and if considering which one of the three to watch you could do worse than just choosing this. Al Pacino terrific as Willy Bank.
