Ocean's 13

Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is back with his team of conniving criminals in the third Ocean's film. Is three a charm?

This time it's not for the money, it's for revenge. A big shot casino and hotel owner played by Al Pachino, double crosses their good friend Ruben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) and nearly kills him. So Danny Ocean calls in his friends for a convoluted scheme to get Bank (Pachino). I have to say this film lost the charm that the first one had.

I had a hard time following the plot which seemed to switch from time to time with so many different characters popping in and out, even Andy Garcia is back. There was just way too much going on and I never seemed to care about the character's like I did in the first film.

There is no love interest in this third escapade either. What? No Julia? Oh there's a girl all right. Ellen Barkin. Sorry Ellen you were hot back in the day, but please. Cameron Diaz see your future!

But she never willingly gets involved with any of the crew. At any rate Al Pachino's character isn't the only one that gets ripped off with this movie.

Save your poker chips and check it out on cable!
