This past summer a star-studded all-female cast tackled one of the greatest heist series in recent memory–the Ocean’s movies–with their own take on the classic heist tale. Sandra Bullock stars as Danny Ocean’s sister, Debbie Ocean, and the rest is history.
I tried to watch this movie last night but it was so boring I couldn’t even finish it. One of the reasons why I love the Ocean’s trilogy is because of the unique cinematography and the directorial view of Steven Soderbergh. Ocean’s 8 doesn’t have that in the slightest.
The music isn’t good, the plot is horrendously boring, and like I said before, I couldn’t even finish it. The screenwriters thought they were writing a smart script but it came off as stale and dry. The characters weren’t thoughtfully written or memorable.
All in all, once again a remake starring an all-female leading cast failed to deliver. It seems so strange that most popular films starring men never seem to suffer from bad writing or stale plot points. From Ghostbusters to Ocean’s 8, however, these all-female reboots are simply embarrassing to behold. Hopefully the next Terminator movie, which is boasting three female leads, will be the first female-led film with a legitimately fantastic storyline.
I’m giving this film a 71 out of a 100 and 2 out of 5 stars. This movie is the definition of boring.
I thank you for reading my review and I hope you have a fantastic day.
