Oceans Twelve

Typical Hollywood sauve heist fare. I like heist movies, used to love them, now I have lowered the affection level a notch because I've seen so many of them like this one's predecessor - Ocean's Eleven, Heist, Le Cercle Rouge, The Italian Job(both versions), The Score etc. Now it only nail biting if there is something totally new. Ocean's Twelve is not as engrossing as when Ocean's team was one member less. This one is a lighter flick, Hollywood A-liners mouthing some slick lines - like turning the pages of People magazine but with some sort of a heist serving as the background score as you progress. Hollywood at its best visual and celebrity appeal, not much of a story, not much of a movie - but slick, sauve, smooth and glamorous.
