18. Ocean’s Twelve
Directed by Steven Soderbergh this comedy heist film includes an extremely talented cast of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Julia Roberts to name a few. Although not the strongest film of the franchise the plot is interesting enough as their former victim Terry Benedict tracks them down and gives them an ultimatum for returning his stolen money. In this process they go up against a renowned thief called The Night Fox who challenges the team to steal the renowned Faberge egg. The acting is excellent, the plot has some twists and turns and George Clooney’s easy charm does the rest. If for nothing else, this film should be watched for Danny Ocean beating a smug rival smoothly and for Julia Roberts trying to con a museum security by pretending to be Julia Roberts!
