Ocean's Eleven Synopsis
Not so much a remake, as a re-working, the 2001-version of this Rat Pack Classic tells a better story and even manages to equal the hip style of the original. This time around, George Clooney and Brad Pitt assemble a cracker-jack crew (including Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Elliot Gould and Carl Renier) of uber-criminals to pull off the perfect heist - rob three Las Vegas casinos on a busy Fight Night - and get away with it. Julia Roberts is along for the right in a small but crucial supporting role as the "Girl Who Got Away" and director Steven Soderbergh tells a superbly visually story as always.
