Went to see Ocean'12 this Sunday. And have to say, this is the second time in recent time that I've felt that it was a sheer waste of money. And to think of it, I had to buy a Europa ticket, which is priced at 200 bucks against PVR's 150. So, there went my 200 down the drain.
The movie started off in a very solemn style. We thought that it must be the build up to a rousing storyline, ending with a goose-bumps wala climax. But all we got was a lousy storyline coupled with a sulane wala climax.
I have to say that the movie lived up to the old adage, " Sequels are just a waste of time and money. Don't ever fall into the sequel trap." (Okay, okay its not an old adage, I invented it)
The movie just goes on and on with silly sequences and then later tells the audience that actually something else had happened. Everyone seems to have a third eye to see what's coming.
Ocean's 12th person was julia roberts, who didn't have a role of more than 15 mins(putting together everything she did on the screen).
And to top it all, the heist that was pulled out by the 12 was of such a silly nature that we see everyday in Bollywood B-grade movies and that too with a huge outside help. Even the "supposed to be" thrilling break-in by their competitor gives u laughs instead of the chills.
My rating: *1/2 (out of 5 *'s. Deducted a 1/2 * cuz the director and producer clearly meant to just cash in on the first movie's success and there was no meaning to the story)
My advice: Better watch a "K" serial on star plus or zee. There u will get better laughs atleast.
Oh God, send in some nice movies, puhleeeeeeeeeeeeeez.
