GOOD 2018 criminal heist film, this time with 8 females. It was fun seeing all those lady stars plotting thievery plus - but the film itself didn't particularly engage me.

I watched Ocean's Eight. This movie was good. It kept you watching more. This movie is about 8 criminals getting this one Cartier necklace from the Met Gala. This movie was so thought out that is what I liked about it. My favourite scene was at the end of the movie when Debbie and Lou explained how they got the other necklaces from the Met Gala. Also, another scene I liked was when Constance took off Debbie and Lou’s watches. She is impressive. The last scene I liked was when Daphne walked into the warehouse and told them she knew all about their plan. At the beginning the movie was boring, that is the only thing I disliked. I would recommend this movie to a friend. It is interesting and all about a heist, I think my friends would like this movie. I rate this 5/5.

Oceans Eight is the 2018 robbery heist thriller that follows the successful Oceans series of the 2000s. It follows Debby Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean as she groups together a team to steal a 150 million dollar diamond necklace from the Met Gala. The main appeal of the film is the star studded cast such as Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and many more. The thriller was mediocre. Being fairly predictable, the chemistry within the cast really saved the film. Awkwafina's character, Constance also brought something new and refreshing to the movie. Great for a Friday night in, if given a sequel, I'd definitely watch. 4 Stars.

Analogous to the GHOSTBUSTERS recent remake: the actors are all females, in place of men. Aren't there any women writers who can make original films--also directors and producers--with a female bent? Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Rhianna...Special Features: A heist in heels; Ocean's Team 3.0; Reimagining the Met Gala; Deleted Scenes. 'A-List Cast brings Glamour and Smashing Fun.' The point above being more especially recently remade with the remake of CHARLIE'S ANGELS, which tanked at the box office despite having been directed by Elizabeth Banks, and starring Kristen Stewart.

I don't know - It was a rather good movie with lots of twists and pretty things. I hate to be a killjoy but stealing art is not right - look up the Isabella Gardner Gallery which has empty spaces where the stolen paintings were. Still, it was a pretty good movie.

Intricately planned jewelry heist story with good cast. It's an Ocean's film after all. Everyone does an excellent acting job, for the most part. The only slightly weak acting link is James Corden (the late night talk show host) who plays a minor part, the insurance investigator. If you think of him as just James Corden pretending to be an actor then it's forgivable.. The story goes very fast, making it a little hard to follow, but overall still reasonably understandable. Recommended.

Good movie but slightly predictable. I loved the ensemble cast, it included many of my favourite actresses. Even though it was predictable, the storyline was clever and interesting.

A rather clever tale starring Sandra Bullock as the leader of the jewel heist team. Has enough twists to make it interesting.

Sandra Bullock mischieviously leads an all-female team of thieves in this enjoyable escapist fare (her German-language tirade to stall the security guards is hilarious). Intellectual plotting, meticulous timing, and sheer bravado make stealing a diamond necklace plausible from a gala evening.

Quite enjoyable. Fun, clever, funny and the characters were quite likeable. A great female-centric heist.

Debbie Ocean: [during her presentation to the girls] In three and a half weeks, the Met will be hosting its annual ball, celebrating its new costume exhibit, and we are going to rob it. Not the ball itself, but a very important set of diamonds that will be attending the ball.

Many in IMDb already except this one that worked George Clooney into the script:

CONSTANCE: Is that your brother?
DEBBIE: Mmm-hmm.
CONSTANCE: He's hot.
DEBBIE: Mmm.
CONSTANCE: You sure he's dead or...
DEBBIE: No.
