Ocean's 8 Directed by Gary Ross
The film seems so desperate to convince us that women are capable of the same capers as their male counterparts that Ocean’s 8 feels more like reading a manual on the management of a heist than being part of one, wasting precious zinger minutes on tedious explanations of every mouse trap.

It felt like another H-Wood sloppy second–boy director, boy co-writer, boysboysboys behind the camera. Every one of these brilliant female cast members-Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Sandy Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway– were reined in by electric dog collars, the plot points and joke setups languished on specially designed fainting couches.

The CT scan has come back, and the results are grim: all members of the octet (save for one inveterate over-emoter) have been flattened and scrubbed of nearly any vivifying trait. . . . If Ocean’s 8 is any guide, to be a female star in 2018, whether long-reigning or ascendant, is to be little more than a cog in the infernal machinery of cross-brand promotion.

    Oh so suave, slick and funny. Bullock speaking in German with Heidi Klum made my day. As did Bonham Carter speaking French (pas tellement). And Blanchett riding Triumph motorbikes. Rihanna's smile is so pure, i hope she never loses that.

    Cinstit, mă gîndesc să Gary Ross e doar un meșteșugar banal. Dar capacitatea lui combinat cu professionalismul de opt femeile frumoase transformă în extremitatea desăvîrșirii în acest film afurisit de superb și somptuos. "Ocean's 8" e chiar un film de vară pe care vreau să l-am văzut. Perfect // 正直言ってゲイリー・ロスは平凡な職人監督だと思っていた。だがこのクソ豪華でクソ贅沢な映画で、彼の素質が8人の美女のプロフェッショナリズムと組み合わさり卓越性の極みへと至っている。「オーシャンズ8」こそ私が観たいと思っていたサマームービーだ。完璧。

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    I went to see this without ever watching any of the other Ocean's films... that's how stoked I was about this female ensemble. The film itself is not boring, but I have to admit that with so many divas around and with a fashion-event as background I was hoping for something way more juicy / glamorous / fierce / unforgettable!

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    Ocean’s 11 is easily one of the most rewatchable films ever made. It’s a great film too. Even the sequels, especially the second, have emerged as great pieces of entertainment. Ocean’s 8, however, is a bland affair lacking Soderbergh’s unmistakably cool touch. The film drags, it's hardly compelling and underperformed. Even the heist is lazily assembled and executed, a snooze most of the time.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    It doesn't help that I don't rate the original, or Gary Ross' directing style. So it's clear that this is more of a statement film. 8 A-list actresses countering the patriarchy much like 'Ghostbusters' remake did to alt-right furore 2 years ago. Both films are sub-par in themselves, but the statement that the film represents is superb. Hopefully, it won't be perceived that a poor review has misogynistic intent.

  • HenriqueA's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    It's all fun and games, but Gary Ross was not the man for the job (and it was never a man's job, anyway). The cast is kenitc and very game, but then the ball really drops on the set pieces and specially that lackluster ending. But like all the other Ocean's films...even when they're not particularly good, they're good enough for me.

  • Skinnedteen's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    It's one of those films where I don't care if it's good or bad, I just wanted to see Rihanna act and watch an all female cast just for the hell of it.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Ocean's 8

    Good but ultimately underwhelming film considering the talent on screen. With such an accomplished cast it's a real shame that the writing and direction is workmanlike at best. And the constant callbacks (music, editing style et al.) to what Soderbergh did is frankly tedious. Still it is a entertaining movie and at least Hathaway gets to shine but this should have been so much more.
