      Critics Consensus

      Easygoing but lazy, Ocean's Eleven blithely coasts on the well-established rapport of the Rat Pack royalty.

      Archer Winsten New York Post The picture is very plush... so much a display of performers who act as if a mere appearance would induce hysteria in the adoring public, that you wonder who's fooling whom. Sep 22, 2018 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) The intrigue is in the details that initially passed you by. The men, for instance, are all army veterans. They address each other by rank and their booze-fuelled camaraderie seems to be an expression of their status. Rated: 4/5 May 4, 2018 Full Review Colin Kennedy Empire Magazine There are many incidental pleasures to be had. Rated: 3/5 Jun 10, 2009 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A barely functional heist tale that served mainly as an opportunity for Frank and friends to party at Warner Bros.’s expense. Rated: 2/4 May 5, 2024 Full Review Allan Morrison Jet Magazine Some of it is funny, but the whole piece never knits together into a believable whole because it is based on a terribly contrived screenplay and because Dir. Milestone obviously couldn’t decide whether to play it straight or satirical. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Nathanael Hood The Young Folks It's an autopsy of the Greatest Generation's self-mythology.

      Timothy D Oceans 11 is a smooth and easy 1960s heist film. The ending may disappoint some, but l find the whole movie to a pleasantly simple and satisfying piece of old Hollywood. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Mr. Goodbytes J The original "Ocean's" film is slick, but not as smooth as it should be. On its most basic, fundamental level is the classic star power of its three singer/actors, Davis Jr., Sinatra, and Martin. Unfortunately, this level turns out to be the entirety of the basis of the movie, and the film suffers this Achilles Heel from minute one. For some people, however, the magnetism of seeing Dean Martin perform "Ain't That a Kick in the Head", and Frank Sinatra pacing (that's almost all he does in the film) just might be enough to view this overlong caper (127 minutes, a stretch even at that) which seems fit to dwell in the purgatory of 60's trying-to-be-classic movies. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/01/23 Full Review Red T It's just ok enough. The main problems is for most of the runtime the editing isn't that good and the pacing is just tolerable enough. I couldn't tell you for half the runtime who the main character was or what these guys were even doing until 50 minutes in because it jumps around so much explaining why each guys motivation is for doing the heist but it just forgets about most of them except 4 or so afterwards. This is a RARE case where the 2001 remake nailed it by having Danny be the main focus every single time he interacted with any group member. This doesn't do that. It spends so much time showing the members getting together that the actual robbery and main heist plot is only half the film and the heist also is very jumpy and really quick also with very poor leadup. The last 30 minutes are the best part because its more focused on dealing with the aftermath of the heist and the ending is kind of clever. It doesn't do a good job really at building anticipation for the heist because its too simple how they do it really and doesn't justify all the buildup. The one saving grace is there is always something keeping you engaged enough. The cinematography is solid with Vegas being a memorable location and good camerawork/framing. The music is good also especially the title song but the rest is kind of generic. The acting is decent also with the Rat Pack & Lawford being the standouts with solid performances but the rest just kind of blend in and are forgotten about. This is something the 2001 version did much better by giving witty dialogue, humor and memorable personas with a all star cast. Unless your a die hard Rat Pack fan there really isn't any reason to watch this over the 2001 remake. Shirley MacLaine has a small role in this so maybe that but otherwise skip it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review ChrisCSH Despite having an extraordinary cast helmed by the infamous rat pack. "Oceans Eleven" manages to get weighed down by a clunky plot and poor editing that drags on far too long. For all its shortcomings the film still manages to squeak out a few interesting and fun parts that it's not a complete waste. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/22 Full Review jelisije j A movie that had terrible passing setting up the plot, but when we get the plot the movie becomes very good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A time-capsule from Sinatra's Vegas. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
