Time Out says
There’s a sense that the filmmakers have taken note of criticisms aimed at the sub-par ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ (love interests and pop cultural references are a no-show), though in doing so they seem inadvertently to have remade ‘Ocean’s Eleven’. Thematically, though, this is an improvement on its forebears, mainly due to the way it deals – much like Scorsese’s best work – with the archaic nature of the criminal set: gadget men puzzled by advancing technology; eyes rolled at witty one-liners; action sequences cut through with ruminations on ‘the good old days’. Even Soderbergh’s once-agile camera seems a little more sedate than usual, perhaps finding the industrious director in a more plaintive mood after a string of coolly-received projects. But whether the ‘Ocean’s…’ franchise is really going to fold will surely be for the box office – and not that big craps table in the sky – to decide.
