"has all of the brilliant editing and aesthetic of the well know Ocean's series, but make no mistake, this film stands on its own"
The hotly anticipated all female summer blockbuster Ocean's 8 has arrived and be warned, it's a sizzler.
The film opens with Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) being released from a long stint in prison. Five years, eight months, 12 days and counting, to be precise. We quickly find out that she is most definitely not looking forward to a quiet life. In fact, she has spent all of that time meticulously planning the biggest heist in recent times - to steal a $150 million Cartier necklace.
She wastes no time in recruiting her specialist posse of bad ass women, starting with her partner in crime Lou (Cate Blanchett) also including jeweller Amita (Mindy Kaling), street con Constance (Awkwafine), suburban mom Tammy (Sarah Paulson), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna), and fashion designer Rose (Helen Bonham Carter).
The film has all of the brilliant editing and aesthetic of the well know Ocean's series, but make no mistake, this film stands on its own in term of plot and vivacious characters (with the delightful addition of Anne Hathaway's prima donna character Daphne Kluger).
Sandra Bullock takes the helm in this brilliantly written and cast film which will keep you entertained throughout, a perfectly fine choice of cinema spectacle.
