What started as a man powered franchise, has now developed into an all woman cast, as Danny Ocean’s sister follow’s in her brother’s law-breaking footsteps.
George Clooney and Brad Pitt are nowhere in sight as this film instead finds itself fronted by Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett who take the meaning of a high end heist to whole new level as they take on the The Met Gala and all the jewels within.
Despite approaching this franchise from a different point of view, director, Gary Ross, struggles to find the right equilibrium between new and old as the characters often feel a little too rehearsed.
This being said, the film does have a lighthearted nature, which will be sure to please audiences of all ages. And more importantly still, it provides Hollywood with a prime example of women owning powerful lead roles.
