Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - Although the look and style are a little different, like the original film, this is a star-studded, light caper comedy/adventure. Fans of Julia Roberts and especially Bernie Mac take note, however--their roles are much smaller this time around.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good One could make an argument that the filmmaker isn't so much directing his actors as he is shepherding them through the movie-making process. There's a sense that at least some of the dialogue was improvised. The final result speaks well for the process, whatever it actually was. "Ocean's Twelve" represents a lively way to spend a December evening.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The new original "Ocean's Eleven" (2001) was a successful attempt by Soderbergh to doodle with the formula, much as a pianist might pick out a tune just well enough to show he could play it if he wanted to. Now, with "Ocean's Twelve," Soderbergh and his scenarists...are doing a jazz riff. This isn't a caper movie at all, it's an improvisation on caper themes. If at times it seems like a caper, well, as the fellow said when he got up from the piano, it might not be Beethoven, but it has a lot of the same notes.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 185 moviegoer opinions. What I immediately noticed is that the opinions go down as the age increases. Teen males loved it with over three-quarters rating it "Excellent" or "Fantastic" with very few low opinions. Teen females weren't too far behind. Twentysomething males and females also rated it high with about three-quarters of them rating it "Very Good" or higher. This indicates they enjoyed it very much but fewer of them thought it was great.

Adult opinions were decent but certainly not great. A low percentage gave "Oceans 12" a "Fantastic" rating, which isn't good. Also, there is a large percentage of "Very Good" opinions, which isn't bad, until you consider the low percentage of "Fantastic" opinions and the relatively high percentage of "Good" and lower opinions. For adults I would say your chances of loving this movie are pretty low, but I believe most will find it enjoyable enough. Seeing a lower priced matinee might also help.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's been three years since Danny Ocean (GEORGE CLOONEY) and his crew – fronted by detail man Rusty Ryan (BRAD PITT), up-and-coming pickpocket Linus Caldwell (MATT DAMON), explosives expert Basher Tarr (DON CHEADLE) and safecracker Frank Catton (BERNIE MAC) – pulled off one of the most audacious and lucrative heists in history, robbing ruthless entrepreneur Terry Benedict (ANDY GARCIA) of every dime stored in his impenetrable Las Vegas vault. After splitting the $160 million take, each of the infamous Ocean's crew have tried to go straight, lay low and live a legit life...but that's proven to be a challenge, much to the chagrin of Danny's wife Tess (JULIA ROBERTS).

When someone breaks Rule Number One and rats them out to Benedict, going straight is no longer an option. He wants his $160 million back – with interest – or else. And, as the gang quickly discovers, Benedict isn't the only powerful person in the world looking for Ocean's Eleven...
