An overview of the film oceans eleven by steven soderbergh
The director comes through, too, by investing the film with his considerable skills. Soderbergh's cinematography adds a candy-colored snap; the tints come out of a pack of Jolly Ranchers. Then Danny Ocean got out of prison.
Other members create a precise replica of the vault with which to practice maneuvering through its formidable security systems. Then Danny escapes the room through the ventilation system. That's like what Steven Soderbergh is doing in "Ocean's Eleven. Frank and Linus catch Benedict off guard, so that Linus can pick his pocket for a paper slip containing the main elevator codes. Rusty urges Danny to give up on the plan, believing Danny incapable of sound judgment while Tess is involved, but Danny refuses. Being accomplices in the scheme, Bruiser and Danny greet one another. The two exchange friendly insults and head toward Rusty's car. The daring plan to rob three casinos at once is certainly dangerous, but Danny Ocean Clooney never really sweats it. Curiously, he heads for the holding room where Danny was taken. Grace in this role. Godard is, and does so here by layering the film with flashbacks. The SWAT team's arrival causes a shootout that sets off the explosives and incinerates the remaining cash.
Once out, Danny heads to Atlantic City, where he meets with croupier Frank Catton in order to find out the whereabouts of Rusty Ryan, a professional con man. He commits a crime, is convicted for it, and incurs a four year prison sentence.
Soderbergh's underseen ''Schizopolis,'' is a jittery electronics expert -- one of several, apparently. Danny tells Benedict he could find the culprits with the help of an ex-con aquaintance of his in three days.
His debut, ''Sex, Lies and Videotape,'' was so much about outsiders that one of its characters pressed a video camera to the window instead of his nose.
When you get all those kind of stars together, you have a great start to a movie.
They take a few men to California to steal it from a research facility. Not far behind, Benedict's men follow.
Reuben's familiarity with casino security makes him very reluctant to get involved, but when he starts to think of it as a good way to get back at his rival, Terry Benedict, who owns all three casinos, Reuben agrees to finance the operation. This weekend, in fact, sees the release of King of Thieves. Just as Danny and Rusty are leaving, they mention the owner of the casinos from which they intend to steal is Terry Benedict. This listing may be the closest thing to actual tension the film provides moviegoers, since Mr. It is shown that Danny's team used their practice vault to create fake footage to fool Benedict. It didn't shake me up and I wasn't much involved, but I liked it as a five-finger exercise. The call is intercepted by Livingston impersonating a dispatcher. Each of these movies has its own merits, but their accolades feel at least in part indebted to the fact that they went against the popular strain. This slight joke is a tutorial on star power to the youths trying to occupy the grown-up space that comes easily to Danny and Rusty. The two men of course despise one another, but are so smooth and cool we note it only in the precision of their timing and word choices, leading up to a final exchange in which Danny, leaving the table, says "Terry" in a way that uses the first name with inappropriate familiarity, and Terry responds "Danny" on precisely the same note. He wheels Saul out of the casino on a stretcher.
The two exchange eye contact in silence for a moment, then she brushes past him. Afterward, Benedict arrives at one of the casino's elevators.
Steven Soderbergh, who directed the remake, understood that all he had to do was show some finesse and he could get away with this low-blood-pressure heist picture, keeping the tiny germ of a story about hitting three Las Vegas casinos.
He tries to connote youth by crimping his own style.
