I watched Ocean’s Eleven for the first (and only) time four years ago. I finally watched the sequel because it was on Netflix. Honestly I don’t remember much from the first movie, except that: I really, really liked it, the cast was amazing, and it was filmed really well.

Ocean’s Twelve was enjoyable, but not as much as the first movie. It felt a bit more unnecessarily complicated in the way the story was told. The humor and wit were still there in the dialogue (much appreciated). The cast of actors were excellent again (especially Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and George Clooney), but the storyline/main conflict wasn’t as compelling as Ocean’s Eleven. My favorite part was by large the last 20-30 min when Julia Roberts got pulled into doing a Julia Roberts impersonation — so great!!

Overall: fun watch but probably a 6.5 or 7 out of 10 for me.
