Debbie Ocean gathers an all-female crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala.
OCEAN'S 8 - Official Main Trailer
Although Ocean's 8 boasts a strong cast, the film suffers from a less-than-exciting plot compared to the other films in the franchise.
"Better than I expected, but I didn't expect much"
Enjoyable in the moment, but two weeks later couldn't tell you three details. But, it didn't make me embarrassed to be a woman so HURRAY FOR #STRONGFEMALELEADS #highstandards
"Really could have used Soderbergh behind the camera"
This is not the worst sequel you will see this summer. This is not the worst female remake Hollywood has put out. This might not even be the worst Ocean's movie ever made. But in a summer full of forgettable franchise installments, I can't help but think that this film will be forgotten in the minds of its audience soon after they leave the theater.
"If the other three "Ocean" movies didn’t exist, this one would be revolutionary"
However; they do, so the plot feels a bit recycled. It won’t change your life, but it is very enjoyable and fun to watch. It’s not going to win any Oscars, but still, as with the rest of the series, it is very entertaining. Plus, the all-female thing is done well and handled effectively, with smart, relatable characters and no over-the-top female empowerment scenes.
"Talented. Brilliant. Incredible. Amazing. Showstopping. Spectacular."
But in all seriousness, it was just a fun movie filled with wonderfully talented female actresses. I didn’t expect anything out of it and I was very pleasantly surprised.
"Yes yes yes to it all!"
I’ve never watched the other Oceans films in their entirety, yet, here I am. I love this cast so much. I think it’s hard to say the movie didn’t do them justice. At least, not without acknowledging the repetitive and clichey plot lines of Oceans films (which I’m familiar with for the most part), that this sequel could not get away from. I think everyone worked. I got a lot of laughs from majority of the cast. The comedy was subtle, and not overdone.
