To start this one off, I should probably say that I didn't bother with 'Ocean's Thirteen' due to not liking 'Twelve' at all, so there may be a couple of things that caught me off guard with this one - not the least of which being what happened with Danny Ocean in the end.
This one follows Danny's sister, Debbie (Sandra Bullock), who has just been released from prison. She immediately goes to work on gathering an all female crew to attempt a difficult heist involving a necklace known as the Toussaint, worth approximately $150 million.
Joining this all female crew is a great cast of women, including Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Awkwafina, and Sarah Paulson. So what about Anne Hathaway? Well, her overall role in this is kinda best left a secret until you see it. But she's still a big part of things, albeit probably the most irritating character in the movie.
It very much seems to follow the overall style and substance I remember from 'Oceans Eleven', which I loved, and boasts a good cast of strong female characters, all of whom have their special talents for the job, as is tradition. There's a tiny romantic bump in the road along the way, but its not enough to take you out of the movie. In fact, it helps move the plot along nicely, and helps you route for these ladies a bit more.
In the end, its pretty much what you'd expect it to be - an all female version of 'Ocean's Eleven'. However, unlike something like 2016's 'Ghostbusters', this one takes place in the same world as the previous three films. You might even see a cameo or two (one that I counted) from said films, which just adds to the fun of it all.
I'm gonna go ahead and say that I actually enjoyed this one more than I enjoyed 'Twelve', but a bit less than 'Eleven', which leads me to imagine it's probably somewhat on par with 'Thirteen'. But again, I never did give that one a chance, so who knows? It wasn't an all-out blast of a movie, but I admit that I had fun here. Consider it living proof that in the right hands, an all-female cast movie is perfectly fine, even if it's picking up from the all-male classics we know and love.
