Slick surface, no substance

Ocean's 13 is a crap movie. It's an unfortunate second sequel to an interesting remake that didn't really deserve a first sequel.

Everyone in it is fine but perhaps a bit phoned in. The movie is pretty to look at in every particular but every set blends together in a haze of dim lighting and overdone interior decoration. There ARE two interesting side-schemes to the main plot that are amusing on their own (the torture of the hotel reviewer and the revolution at the die factory) and I wish had more screen time than the interminable focus on the antics of Ocean's crew gaming games and being smarmy.

I don't even have the energy to write about this film. There isn't enough in it to sit down and give a shit about. I didn't even have the energy to watch this movie, it came on TV while I was inking a comic so I just let it run in the background as mildly irritating white noise.

Ugh, it's so frustrating to know that basically everyone connected to this movie is capable of being brilliant and they just WEREN'T for this feature. Everything about it feels lazy, from the script to the music to the costumes almost everything you see on screen could have been better but someone chose not to make it so.
