"There's water in the basement and the pilot light's out!"

If this movie has a downside, and many of the reviewers here think it does, I think it tries to be ambitious to a fault trying to top it's predecessor, "Ocean's Eleven". This was no more evident than in the gimmick to raise the level of a building by three inches using some underwater hydraulic contraptions. I couldn't follow the logistics of that escapade, much less think it was feasible at all, but the sheer audacity of the idea sounded compelling as all get out. But come on, Linus Caldwell's (Matt Damon) idea for a 'lookie-loo and a bundle of joy' was brilliant; who else would have come up with the idea of Julia Roberts impersonating Julia Roberts in a movie? It was almost as good as Bruce Campbell portraying Elvis Presley who in turn impersonates an Elvis Presley impersonator in 2002's "Bubba Ho-Tep". Try wrapping your heard around that one.

So Julia Roberts provides the number '12' in this outing, which reunites the usual gang of idiots from the first movie. Good to see Don Cheadle got his own credit for the flick this time around. I will agree that there's a lot to be confused about in the story if you're not paying attention, so you need to be glued to the picture throughout. Noteworthy scenes include Tess's (Roberts) encounter with Bruce Willis (as himself), and Vincent Cassel's turn as a slow motion break-dancer doing the laser field jump.

In the end, the caper turns out to be almost secondary to the zaniness involved in all of this. None of it's believable at all, but what was believable about "Ocean's Eleven" when you come right down to it? Leave your brain at the door and just enjoy the flick for the camaraderie and fun involved with the Ocean crew. It's easier that way.

Abusive, as it confirms hierarchy without giving answer as to how to deal with hierarchy

A pseudo-awareness is a true lack of awareness

Lack of awareness is deceptive lack

Deceptive lack of true possession

A true true possession is not true possession

Not true possession is false possession

False possession is possession of false

Possession of false is non-possession of truth

Non-possession of truth is truth of non-possession

Truth of non-possession is truth of hierarchy

Truth is hierarchy

Ocean's Twelve is an abusive sequel, for it confirms the existence of hierarchy without giving a solution to deal with the awareness

Just as flashy as the first one

It's tough to tell whether Ocean's Twelve is a sequel to Ocean's Eleven or a remake. It's so incredibly similar to the first film-which is itself a remake of the 1960 Rat Pack film-that after you've seen both of them, you'll find yourself getting scenes confused with each other. The memorable and expensive cast returns-George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Carl Reiner, Elliot Gould, Andy Garcia, and Julia Roberts-and are joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Eddie Izzard, Robbie Coltrane, and Jared Harris. Once again, they're all involved in a heist that's complicated beyond belief and fraught with plans going awry, but this time, the expensive cast are all flown abroad, enjoying scenes in Italy, France, the Netherlands, and Monaco.

If you liked the first one-the remake, not the original-you'll like the sequel. I did not, so I didn't care for the sequel either. Just as the original is a two-hour spectacle of "Look how cool me and my friends are", the remakes of the Ocean films have the same feel to them. Everyone in the audience knows the actors who take the top billings are friends in real life, and while they have their little smirks and giggles over inside jokes, unfinished sentences, and awkward pauses, the audience either feels "cool" to be a part of it or wishes they'd just had a get-together without filming it.
