Ocean's 13
June 9th, 2007 9:41PM

Today, I had to go see Ocean's 13 on opening weekend. I am a huge, huge fan of Ocean's 11, and while Ocean's 12 was a letdown (it's MUCH better on DVD), I had to see this one. And I had a great time. While this sequel is not as good as the first, it's a great return to form - and it's clearly much better than the middle child. Back in Vegas, back to a complicated scheme, and back to that witty repartee between Danny and Rusty, this one was a lot of fun. It was a brisk two hours, lots of laughs, a great heist, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

I LOVED the look at the new casino. Wow, if that thing could be built....it's beautiful. It would actually be too pretty for the Vegas strip.

The one weak point is that the supporting cast - outside of Damon - is pretty much underutilized. It feels like they were just given little things to do just to be in the picture. They didn't feel integral to the plot like in the other two. They have their little moments, which are key to getting the heist done, yet it feels like they could be jettisoned leaving only Danny and Rusty. And that would not be a horrible idea.

This one is my favorite summer movie thus far. Go see this one.
