Oceans 8 Film Review


Oceans’ 8 is a 2018 comedy heist film starring Sandra Bullock. The Ocean franchise which was known for its iconic style and overall coolness brought by its star studded ensemble cast headlined by George Clooney and Brad Pitt.  The original Oceans Trilogy was a boy’s club, with the lone female presence being the love interest for either Pitt or Clooney.  This spin-off sequel has Sandra Bullock stepping into some big shoes leading the talented all female ensemble taking place in the same cinematic world the previous Ocean movies have before.

The movie opens up with a familiar setting we come to find in these heist movies. The title character Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) the estranged sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney) being released from Prison (crime revealed later on) looking like she stepped off a red carpet.  She immediately connects with her former partner Lou played wonderfully by Cate Blanchett. Lou is Brad to Sandra’s Clooney, with just the right mystery and coolness. We learn that Debbie’s time in jail allowed her plan out the bold and daring heist. The location is the MET Gala the score this time is the Toussaint Diamond necklace valued at a cool 150 Million dollars.  Soon enough Debbie and Lou start recruiting their team. Every team needs a good tech person, they come across Nine Ball (Rihanna) who’s laid back style is a perfect fit. Now you need a good pair of hands, that’s where Constance (Awkwafina) comes in with her skater girl style.  Debbie pulls in her former partner Tammy (Sarah Paulson) who has a knack of getting what people want into their hands. Rounding out the team are Amita (Mindy Kaling) the jewelry expert and last but not least the down on her luck designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter).  Debbie explains to the audience and the team that they need a way in to the Met Gala and a reason for the Jewelry to come out of Cartier’s Vault. That’s where Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) comes in the mark sort of speak.  Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of Daphne nearly stole the show with her comedic timing and satirical portrayal of today’sHollywood starlet which presumably the entire cast knows all too well. 

Gary Ross does a good job meshing the stars together although I would have liked more screen time for Rihanna who for the first time seemed comfortable in front of the camera. As the Film unfolds we are treated to a by the numbers heist film with polish. The only bad issue I had with this film is the underlying plot about a women scorn, in this film is not needed and unwelcomed. 

I give this film a 3.5 out a 5 Diamonds for its quick wit and charm. I hope to see much more from these characters. Financial predictions 25-30 mil opening weekend which a serviceable 150- 200 million at the end of its run. Steven Soderbergh produced the film. It come in at a run time of 1h 50m with a rating of PG-13.
