Ocean’s Eleven is a remake of the 1960’s movie starring Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Junior.
This time George Clooney plays the role of the charismatic Danny Ocean who gathers 10 of his old buddies to do one last major heist. Target of the burglary are three huge casino’s in Las Vegas, all owned by Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia). When Danny finds out the Benedict’s girfriend is his ex-wife (Julia Roberts), things start to get personal.
Sound and Vision:
