Ocean’s 8 review Patrickdangersessoms – Ocean’s 8 gives Eleven a Run for Its Money.
‘Ocean’s 8’ had a lot to live up to after what a tremendous success Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ was. The all-male original was filled with more charm and style than you could shake a stick at. Luckily, ‘Ocean’s 8′ features such an incredible cast that it has no problem not only living up to any expectations there might have been, but also distinguishes itself as a fun and fascinating heist movie.
After the lackluster success of the Ghostbusters’ reboot and the recent Overboard film, I wasn’t completely sold on the idea of gender-bending successful films. The concept is intriguing in principle, but in a way, it feels lazy. ‘Ocean’s 8’ though isn’t a reboot or a remake, it’s a spinoff from ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ featuring Danny Ocean’s sister Debbie, played by Sandra Bullock. As charming as the old silver fox George Clooney is, Bullock manages to embrace her role as his younger sister and proves to be a more than worthy addition to the Ocean family. She manages to encompass the sophisticated and playful confidence that Clooney displayed, but manages to create a character that doesn’t rely on her family ties to win over audiences.
The rest of the cast is filled with unbelievable talent. Featuring the likes of Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sarah Paulson, they manage to create such genuine chemistry that it’s hard not to fall in love with all of Debbie Ocean’s crew. Like the original ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, Debbie’s heist requires a group made up of people from all walks of life with a variety of criminal skills that will come together to pull off an impossible heist. It’s hard not to notice that there aren’t any men on the crew, but as Debbie puts it so elegantly, “Women go unnoticed.” Thus her crew relies on the fact that they will all be constantly underestimated due to their gender, but prove that anything boys can do, girls can do too.
‘Ocean’s 8’ relies a lot on the chemistry I mentioned earlier and it’s a brilliant decision by Gary Ross. All of the actresses in the film do what they do best, especially Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina who are delightful as the comic relief of the crew. Of course, all the women in the film are delightfully charming and play their parts perfectly, it’s a dream cast and like ‘Ocean’s ‘Eleven” it wouldn’t have been possible without such a talented crew coming together. It’s just hard not to gush about the performances given and I wouldn’t be surprised if audiences got a chance to see these ladies comes together for another film. After all, you have a nine and ten left to film in the Ocean’s franchise.
It might seem tacky to talk at length about the costuming of such a film given that so often Hollywood is more obsessed with who a woman is wearing than who they actually are. However, given that the heist of the film takes place during the annual Met Gala, an event known for it’s gorgeous and adventurous fashion displays, it would be a crime not to say that the dresses the women wear are breathtaking. Not only that, but the fashion choices throughout the film really add to the story overall, just by looking at these characters you can immediately tell what kind of people they are. Like ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, the story is filled with rich and colorful characters and their costuming goes a long way to adding legitimacy to their portrayals.
‘Ocean’s 8’ definitely takes a few notes from the original, most notably in the editing. Unfortunately, this is the one place where it falters. The film is filled with quick cuts and short scenes which make it feel rushed at times. Worst of all it tries to embrace the unique transitions that ‘Eleven’ used from scene to scene. Something that felt very appropriate for Las Vegas, but doesn’t make a lot of sense in the Big Apple. It feels like it’s trying too hard to grab onto the spirit of ‘Eleven’, something that is completely unnecessary given the quality of the story and performances at the core of this film.
I’ve compared ‘Ocean’s 8’ to ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ quite a bit in this review because there’s no getting around the fact that there was a lot for it to live up to. I’m glad to say that this movie manages to stand on its own two feet far from the shadow of its predecessors. While it might not be quite as good as the ‘Eleven’, there is no question that it is much, much better than the sequels. I found ‘Ocean’s 8’ to be a delightfully charming night out at the movies. It’s filled with plenty of twists that you’ll never see coming and is a sly and smart heist film with an all-star cast. I was hoping that it would be a good movie and I’m happy to say it was exactly that. While it’s not perfect, I think it’s well worth the price of admission and a film that will leave you satisfied and smiling.
Ocean’s 8 review by Margaretelizabethcarter – Killer cast and great characters
I love heist movies and grew up watching them with my older sister, but it always bothered me that women were never the protagonists, mostly reduced to being loved interests with zero substance (or of course, the known cliche of one single woman in an all-man crew). Ocean’s 8 goes beyond that, introducing the audience to fleshed out and diverse characters whose main topics of conversation are not men. The cast is also incredible, and their chemistry is off the charts (btw, Debbie and Lou are totally a couple and no one can change my mind). I hope there’s a sequence to it, mixing the old characters with the new ones.
Debbie says that they’re not robbing the gala for her, or even for themselves. They’re doing it for the 8-year-old girl somewhere that dreams about being a criminal. Well, I am that girl, fifteen years later.
Ocean’s 8 review by Avadubie – I knew I’d love it!
Having seen all the other Oceans and knowing how much I love this kind of movie I wasn’t the least bit surprised. This all female leading cast was perfection. All the twists and turns, all the wonderful different situations, all the beautiful outfits and locations. I can’t stop smiling and I’ve been home for almost an hour. In my opinion, everything Sandra Bullock does is right in my book.I’m going to see this again, I’m sure there was a lot I missed, there always is in a great movie like this!
Ocean’s 8 review by LennonBlake – A great film and an excellent progression in the story
I can’t fathom how this movie is being labeled mediocre and disappointing. Obviously, not everybody is like me but I can’t see what everyone else is seeing. The entire cast is solid, talented and amazing. Pacing is right on and the directing is a solid evolution from Soderbergh’s style. I think it was casted perfectly and writing never fell into any silly one-liners.
The last line of the movie was amazing. I love the series and the way they handled it was awesome. So when she says that final bit, it even almost got to me.
Very fine film. Not everyone is like me, but you’re gonna get more than your money’s worth for this. Especially fans of the series.
Ocean’s 8 review by esweet-154-191260 – Just relax and enjoy it!
The theatre was near full and there were more than a few large groups of girls and women who were clearly out on the town for the night. I read the poor IMDB reviews while waiting for the movie to start and perhaps that lowered my expectations, however, the movie was great. These sorts of things shouldn’t be compared to their priors, like a new partner, you take them for what they are in the present. Were there better heist movies yesterday, sure there are. This was another decent heist movie, it hit all the notes a heist movie should, including a slight of hand surprise twist at the end. You leave feeling good, what more could you ask for. Nice to see a couple original oceans characters brought back for cameos and a lovely surprise with you trying to place the older wealthy women gala guests popping up near the end, Marlene, Ethel (Coma), Diana. The theatre emptied out with everyone happily chattering away. No academy awards here but that’s nothing any sane person is expecting.
Ocean’s 8 review by ocisne06 – Enjoyable & Fun
I’ve been a fan of the Ocean’s movie. Once I found out that they were making an all female cast Ocean’s movie, I knew it would be different. Don’t go into the movie with a mindset that it’ll be like Ocean’s 11,12&13. No no. This is a whole different set of character and story of its own. You will appreciate to see some cameos of old characters in it as I did. It’s not a message movie. It’s a fun film about a group of women who are bad ass and somehow complete a heist. Don’t expect fighting against the women because well, women can get along. But honestly, enjoy the movie for what it is and separate from the previous Ocean’s movie.
Ocean’s 8 review by ali-54814 – One little hiccup, there weren’t any
When you think about the oceans series, you think about attention to detail. Not one scene, no matter how insignificant it would turn out to be, wasn’t explained through clever twists and cons. Oceans 8 I feel just ran too smoothly and expected us to rely on the credibility of the oceans series that the audience members would think “they’re the oceans crew, there that smart that it would’ve just happened like that” however we didn’t see it, or understand it. Everything just ran so smoothly, not one hiccup that made them think on their feet and adjust the gameplay. The acting and story were phenomenal, Sarah Paulson was a shining light for me, really enjoyed her character, I just didn’t feel it was gritty and thorough like the originals
Ocean’s 8 review by Hollandrhoads – Fantastic movie, DON’T listen to the haters!!
I am 13 years old and I saw this movie today with my mom and was utterly amazed! We both went into it having high hopes, yet at the same time hoping it would live up to our expectations, as we were both aware of some of the hate it was receiving for having an all female-lead cast. I am happy to say, this movie far surpassed this. Not only was it witty and superbly clever, but I never found myself questioning or in anyway comparing the new cast to its original counterpart. The plot was well thought out and the women were all great role models (especially great for young girls/children to look up to).
However, you shouldn’t just go see this movie if you were looking for a strong “feminist take” on an already beloved film, because this movie shouldn’t just be looked at as another accomplishment for women(!) I truly believe that this is just a downright badass film that has the potential to reach all audiences whether they are male or female.
Ocean’s 8 review by Thomas Drufke – Far From Original, but Just the Summer Fun We Need
A few years ago when the very mention of an all female Ghostbusters movie sent some (idiotic) fans into a rage, it was an undeniable risk to announce an all female remake/reboot/sequel of the Ocean’s franchise. Not because a heist film with all women would fail in quality, but because there’s a certain section of people who just set out to automatically hate change in franchises they love. Luckily, Ocean’s 8 doesn’t just trample on any of those questions, it destroys them. It’s silly that the first few sentences of a review even have to address that, but luckily, the film makes you forget that such a point of view even exists. With an all-star cast of female powerhouses, and a few interesting casting choices, Ocean’s 8 succeeds in reinvigorating a franchise that we didn’t know we needed to be invigorated. The beginning-middle act does drag a little bit, but once the ladies begin the mission, the film takes off to deliver some of the most fun this summer can probably offer. As per usual, there’s things you don’t expect and twists that pay off at just the right time. Admittedly, this film follows Ocean’s 11 almost note for note, but if it succeeds on entertainment, a remake/reboot/re-quel/sequel doesn’t necessarily need to reinvent the wheel. In short, I sure hope the movie does well enough to warrant an Ocean’s 9.
Ocean’s 8 review by Java_Joe – It’s like a remake of Ocean’s 11 but with women.
This is a movie that really shouldn’t exist. There’s nothing actually wrong with it on the surface, the actresses are good, the sets and costumes are good but it’s missing something and that’s a reason for it to be a movie.
When it comes to remakes some of them are good and some of them are bad. Ocean’s 11, of which this movie is a kind of sequel to, was an example of a good remake. It took the story made famous by the Rat Pack and modernized it. It was a smash hit and spawned two sequels which did less well. So at some point this movie was considered to be a female version of the movie. Sandra Bullock even plays the sister of Danny Ocean, hence the name of the movie. The idea being that this then takes place in the same universe.
What follows is frankly, the same movie. Sandra Bullock is at her parole meeting. She gets out. Meets up with her friends and they plan a heist. The only real difference is that there are only 8 people in this group and they’re going after some jewels. Beyond that it is practically beat for beat the same movie as Ocean’s 11. It’s even to the point where the director tried aping Soderbergh’s style with quick zooms and lingering shots. I get why they did that to maybe tie the movies together but it’s coming off as forced and unnecessary.
This could have been a much better movie. All in all I didn’t hate it. It was fun enough but it was too much like the first one.
Ocean’s 8 review by Harinderjeetsinghtiwana – A solid reboot with a spectacular cast and a simple yet elegant plot.
Got the chance to watch it on Wednesday preview night and I was impressed by the movie more than I thought I would. When I heard couple of years ago that Ocean’s franchise was getting an all female cast reboot I was worried about another “Ghostbusters” scenario but I’m glad I was wrong. the whole cast is very good and chemistry between them is fluid, no one looks out of character (even Rihanna). The plot is pretty simple and resembles the Ocean’s 11 with enough material to keep you interested through the whole movie but the movie shines in how brilliantly each character is used from Sandra Bullock to Anne Hathaway. the background score is slick just like other Ocean’s movies. In this period of reboots and franchise with big budgets this movie has its own charm and is not trying to be different just for the sake of it.
Ocean’s 8 review by Louise Beuvink – A consistently fun watch, despite some flaws
Ocean’s 8, directed by Gary Ross, is a the fourth film in the modern Ocean’s heist film franchise, and the first with an all-female cast of criminals. Inspired by her late brother Danny, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) assembles a team of multi-talented women to pull off a jewellery heist at the New York Met Gala.
Debbie is the first character we’re introduced to, masterfully manipulating the parole board to secure her release after five years in prison. I’m hooked on Debbie right away; she’s a determined, mischievous genius who will take what she wants, laws be damned, and I can’t wait for the ruckus she’s going to cause on the outside.
Upon her release, Debbie reconnects with her long-time partner-in-crime, Lou (Cate Blanchett). The on-screen chemistry between Debbie and Lou is fantastic. They know each other inside out, with the kind of close friendship where they are starkly honest and tease each other with no love lost. They adore each other, and they’ve been through some shit together to create this unbreakable bond. Adding to the satisfaction of watching a beautiful on-screen friendship, it’s refreshing to watch a film where the main two women are partners rather than rivals.
Once reunited, Debbie and Lou get to work recruiting their perfect heist team; fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham-Carter), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna), stay-at-home mum Tammy (Sarah Paulson), con artist Constance (Awkwafina) and jewellery maker Amita (Mindy Kaling). Their target – a $150 million diamond Cartier necklace on loan to celebrity Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway). Although there’s little room for character development with an ensemble cast, they’re entertaining to watch as a team and play their individual parts well. I’m particularly drawn to Bonham-Carter’s portrayal of the eccentric, anxiety-ridden Irish fashion designer slipping into irrelevancy and Hathaway’s spot-on, spoilt prima donna. My only reservation is with Rihanna’s pot-smoking, Rastafarian character Nine Ball, which feels like it’s bordering on racist caricature.
The writers address the heist team being all-female only once, with a satisfying little wink to the audience during the team selection scene. Lou suggests recruiting a man and Debbie delivers what is probably my favourite line in the whole film; “A ‘him’ gets noticed, a ‘her’ get’s ignored, and for once we want to be ignored.” I’m relieved the writers only address the team’s gender briefly. I was afraid it could be made a recurring, patronising gimmick (omg, guess what guys… they’re LADIES!) – as if they are pulling off a heist despite their gender. But thankfully that’s not the case; the characters are bomb-ass, professional cons and their gender doesn’t matter.
On top of the already star-studded main cast, Ocean’s 8 is packed with cameos. A long list of celebs including Heidi Klum and Kim Kardashian play themselves attending the Met Gala, while others have character cameos. I’m not sold on doing both in the same film. Self-cameos suggest the plot happens in our world, while character cameos seem to contradict that, so Ocean’s 8 plays out in an in-between land where Serena Williams exists but James Corden doesn’t. But perhaps I’m irked because James Corden doesn’t really play a character, he is just himself by a different name, working as an insurance investigator rather than a comedian.
With the heist being set at the Met Gala, it’s reasonable to expect a parade of outrageous costumes that the A-list party is famous for in the real world. I was disappointed that the costume styling ended up more in line with Hollywood glam than WTF glam. Maybe the costume budget was drained from hiring such a huge, high-profile cast.
Like any good heist film, the story has a riveting series of twists and turns as the crims try to outwit every obstacle and security measure. It never goes seamlessly to plan, but unfortunately the curve balls in Ocean’s 8 were far too easily solved for my liking. Part of the fun of heist films is watching the crooks think on their feet to resolve impossible situations, and the strife was lacking in this one. Call me a sadist, but I want the characters to struggle – it makes the resolution all the more satisfying.
Despite some flaws, Ocean’s 8 is a consistently fun watch and a worthy addition to the Ocean’s franchise. Go see it for an ideal night out with your heist team, or if you need some inspiration to steal from the cinema’s overpriced candy bar.
