Ocean's Eleven (2001)

I watched this movie once a long time ago and the only details I still remembered today were the following: 1) the film had a plot twist, 2) that Danny does the full run through at the end, and 3) the plan succeeds.

Danny Ocean (George Clooney) [#1]
Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon) [#11] and Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) [#2]

After one hour and thirty-six minutes (the bomb squad enters the vault), I wondered if I confused any of those details with the sequel, Ocean's Twelve. After finishing the movie, I believe that was the case (with #3 being technically correct). Consequently, doubt entered my mind on whether I ever actually saw Ocean's Eleven. However, I rarely watch a sequel without watching the original and I'm sure I watched the sequel (confirmed by a quick glance at the sequel's plot summary).

Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle) [#8]
Frank Catton (Bernie Mac) [#4]

In any case, this film excels at exposition. I enjoyed it more than The Italian Job (2003).

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Instant Comments:
Hehe. One more.

Turk Malloy (Scott Caan) and Virgil Malloy (Casey Affleck) [#5 & #6]
Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner) [#10] and Rusty

[In the scene where Danny meets Linus, it's made to look like Linus lifts the ticket from underneath Danny's fingertips. However, I happened to re-watch the scene (20180228) and Danny lifted his right hand when he asked for the check. Which diminishes the feat.]
Hahaha. "That's wonderderful. Get in the goddamn house."

Reuben Tishkoff (Elliott Gould) [#3]
Livingston Dell (Eddie Jemison) [#7]

"We're just suppose to walk out of there with 150 million dollar in cash [...]." "Yeah." "Oh."
Smile. "Say hi to your mom for me." "Say hi to her yourself, she'll be onstage in five minutes."
Ink on his forehead.
Smile. That grip.

"The Amazing" Yen (Shaobo Qin) [#9]
Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia)

Hahahaha. He's watching it on tv when it's happening right behind him.
Smile. "Don't under any circumstances..." (gets cut off). What is it!?!
HAHAHA. "You might as well call it 'white'-jack."
Holy crap. That bomb trigger was so tense.
