Ocean's Thirteen (2007) PG - 3½ Stars

I don't usually care for sequels because they never are as good as the first but I have to say Ocean's 13 surprised me.

Willy Bank (Al Pacino) is the hot shot in Vegas who can claim he is the only hotel owner that has earned the prestigious Royal Review Board's Five Diamond Award. But in order to be so successful, he pissed many people off along the way. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) has a huge bone to pick and would love nothing better than to take Willy down. And with a little help from his friends, he does just that. He gets his team ready just in time for the grand opening of Willy's new casino opening. All star cast of (Matt Damon) - Linus Caldwell, Brad Pitt - Rusty Ryan, Matt Damon - Lenny Pepperidge, Andy Garcia - Terry Benedict, Don Cheadle - playing Fender Roads and Basher Tarr, Bernie Mac - Frank Catton, Elliott Gould - Reuben Tishkoff, Carl Reiner - playing Saul Bloom and Kensington Chubb, Casey Affleck - Virgil Malloy, and new comer Ellen Barkin - Abigail Sponder.
