The Ocean’s Trilogy, a brand new 3-disc set, brings together Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen in one box, delivering some of the finest old-style caper entertainment seen on the big screen in years.
Ocean’s 11 (Dir. Steven Soderbergh) (2001): Three casinos. Eleven guys. $150 million. No problem. Danny Ocean likes his chances. All he asks is that his handpicked squad of 10 grifters and cons play the game like they have nothing to lose. If all goes right, the payoff will be a fat $150 million. Divided by 11. You do the maths. Ocean’s Eleven brings the filmmaking talent of Academy Award winning director Steven Soderbergh and enough starpower to light up the Las Vegas strip to this classy caper.
Ocean’s 12 (Dir. Steven Soderbergh) (2005): 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 (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).
Ocean’s Thirteen finds the gang in much finer form though, and the addition of Al Pacino to the roster as the new villain of the piece does it no harm whatsoever. The focus is back onto a single job, and while it’s light on twists, it’s still a breezy caper that’s hard not to warm to. Packed with big name stars, and directed on the whole with real skill by Steven Soderbergh, the Ocean’s Trilogy is–the middle film excepted–testament to just how much fun watching movie stars doing their thing can be. A boxset well worth investing in.
