Movie Info

Cinema icon Al Pacino joins a powerhouse cast headed by of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, and series newcomer Ellen Barkin for this, the third installment of director Steven Soderbergh's popular series of glitzy crime comedies. The only hotelier in Las Vegas who can claim that each and every one of his establishments has earned the Royal Review Board's Five Diamond Award, Willy Bank (Pacino) has made more than his share of enemies during his impressive ascent. While most of Bank's adversaries amount to little more than the occasional nuisance, however, this powerful player is about to find out that picking your enemies in Las Vegas can be a true gamble. In betraying Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould), Bank has finally crossed the one man who could bring his entire empire crumbling to the ground -- Danny Ocean (Clooney). Now Reuben is in critical condition, and Ocean is determined to strike back at the man who nearly murdered his mentor. Bank may have taken down one of the original Ocean's Eleven, but his efforts only managed to unite the remaining ten closer than ever before. As the opening of Bank's newest casino draws near, Danny and the crew set into motion a bold plan to humiliate the cocksure casino owner and forever tarnish his spotless reputation. It won't be easy, but if Ocean and his team can get their elaborate plan together in time for the opening of The Bank, they just might be able to deliver some serious Las Vegas justice. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Ocean's Thirteen

  • May 26, 2016
    Steven Soderbergh reverts back to the witty and suave layout that made the original such a success. Even though it doesn't match with its first installment, Ocean's Thirteen is actually a boost from the second installment. The film's able to capture some of its original magic and, along with an interesting premise, is able to be an entertaining entry in this heist trilogy. 4/5

    Ocean's crew reunites for one last con in Ocean's Thirteen. When one of their own gets scammed by a casino developer Danny Ocean puts the team back together in order to get payback, and to set things right. The story's fairly strong, and the Las Vegas setting returns the series to its roots. Still, the con's a little incoherent and the plot has some extraneous parts. Most of the cast from the previous films return, and are joined by Al Pacino; who makes for a terrific villain. Ocean's Thirteen is an improvement over the last film, but it's not as good as the original.

    Steven Soderbergh takes a full step backwards with Ocean's Thirteen, the final Ocean's film in the trilogy. I felt like Twelve was it's own thing, similar to Eleven in many respects but very different at the same time. Thirteen felt like it was trying way too hard to be like Eleven again, which is sad because I loved Twelve: yet for some reason, most critics and audiences felt like it was the weakest of the trilogy. Thirteen is just way too confusing to keep up with, there aren't nearly as many funny moments as Twelve had, and it didn't entertain me nearly as much as the first two did. Brad Pitt doesn't have as much screen time, Vincent Cassel is barely included (when it seemed obvious he would have a much more significant role after the end of Twelve), and the addition of Al Pacino isn't as good as one would expect. Pacino plays the owner of a new casino who screws over one of the guys. The point of the film is for Ocean and his team to get back at him and essentially make him lose money. This concept isn't nearly as exciting as the first two, and the stakes aren't as high. Ocean's films are about stealing mass amounts of money and/ or valuable objects, but here, it's pretty much about getting back at this one guy and that's it. It's just not exciting or fun enough. Pacino's character Bank lacks the energy that Pacino is so great at normally conveying in his typical roles and should have been a lot crazier than he ends up being. While there are many many faults with this threequel, it wasn't all bad; it's still a very smart (if extremely difficult to follow) and stylized film, and the cast is still largely great and fun to watch. Unfortunately, it was hard not to be disappointed and it just didn't come together for me like the last two did.
