Steven Soderbergh's three Ocean's films have been conveniently packaged as a set by WB as the Ocean's Trilogy, and it's a worthy upgrade.

Shot on film in S35, by the occasionally mysterious Peter Andrews, who may have one of the closest relationships with their director, takes advantage of the 4k format, allowing rich blacks and superb colors across the board. Darkness is important in some sequences, as one might sense an homage to Gordon Willis by Mr. Andrews.

Audio is rich and proscenium filling in DTS-HD MA 5.1.

For packaging fans, there's an attractive slip which (for at least the first printing) combines embossing and reflective inks. Best to grab a copy early if you're a collector.

For those who can't turn down the offer of a Steelbook, all three are being issued separately, but be aware that the price of admission will be almost double the trilogy.

Great fun, especially for those new to the series.

Image – 10 (HDR)

Audio – 10 (DTD-HD MA 5.1)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Plays nicely with projectors - Yes

Makes use of and works well in 4k - 8.5

Upgrade from Blu-ray - Yes

Worth your attention - 8

Slipcover rating - 4

Highly Recommended

I just watched 11 and it’s a blast.

love a good bank/casino robbery movie.
My only thing is in these movies is the pickpocket.
Im sure it’s something that is easily done by those people but it seems nearly impossible to me someone can reach into a jacket and take things without them knowing.

It can be done by a skilled pickpocket but not as easily as shown in a movie.

I received the non-steelbook trilogy last week but haven’t found time to watch them yet. I need to at least watch the first movie this week.
This weekend I was finally able to watch Eleven. A great looking 4K/UHD and a thoroughly enjoyable movie that I think is a better film than the 1960 movie. I grew up in 1960’s watching the original movie so I’m a fan of it but there are portions of the movie that hasn’t age well.

One of many things that really makes the movie click, is the terrific soundtrack. A smashing mix of lesser '60's ditties (remember how they dug out and polished a lost Elvis song for this?) and groovy David Holmes originals.

My best friend is a Frank Sinatra superfan, and after watching the 2001 film during its theatrical run, I would tweak him about how much this remake is better than the original film. Today, I'll be calling him again to tweak him about this 4K/UHD release.:laugh:

The remake is better but…….something about seeing Vegas in the 60’s is alluring. Plus Sinatra adds some coolness to it but yes dated in other respects. The remake is the better movie especially with that twist haha.

I wish the first half of the original film wasn’t so slow. I was watching it again recently and I have yet to finish it. I’ll do so soon!

Just got Eleven in today and plan to watch it tomorrow. It has been awhile since I last seen Ocean Eleven or the other two so it will be fun seeing it again.

@Robert Harris ageed.
The movies are real fun,

The chemistry between George Clooney and Brad Pitt shines throughout the series.

Oceans Twelve being my personal Favorite.

And the dynamic between Andrews and Soderberg, what Soderberg brings out of his actors in films and how beautifully it’s captured by Andrews can’t be understated.

i’m writing this because I just broke down to watch the “Magic Mike” series for the first time this weekend,
without knowing who directed the first and third film,
watching Magic Mike, I could not work out why I was enjoying this movie so much.
Then the ending titles rule, and I see who directed it.

I ran to the second film, not directed by Soderberg, but still a lot of fun.
But I just couldn’t wait to get to part three where Soderberg comes back.

“Sex, Lies and Videotape”

He is a phenomenal Director.
