Ocean’s Twelve (2004)

When Terry Benedict catches up with Ocean’s Eleven he demands repayment plus interest within two weeks or he’ll have them all killed. The team get back together to start stealing more stuff to pay Benedict off but a third party has yet to reveal himself.


Fully bad sequel to the original better-than-expected remake of the rose-tinted remembrance of a 60’s original. A line or two are nice, the cast seem to be enjoying themselves (except Julia Roberts) and Catherine Zeta Jones looks impossibly lovely but it’s difficult to pull out anything positive of importance. The heists are spectacularly unconvincing and the plot is transparent and / or breathtakingly stupid.
