Ocean's 11 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

 Ocean's 11 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas. Roulette wheels spin, cards snap, slots chime, champagne fizzes, shows go on…and the lights go out. It’s the perfect time to steal a kiss or a $25 chip. But for Danny Ocean (Frank Sinatra) and 10 partners in crime, it’s the ideal moment to steal millions. Sinatra and off-screen pals Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and more play army buddies who scheme to knock out power to the Vegas strip, electronically rig five big casino vaults and raid them all at the same instant. Packed with location-lensed glamour, sweaty suspense, swinging comedy and a stunning twist ending now in gorgeous hi-def, Ocean's 11 is your entertainment best bet.

Review: Oceans 11 is now perhaps more widely known as a Brad Pitt and George Clooney feature from the 2001 remake and subsequent sequels.  While these were great movies, its important to look back at the originals.  Now, on the 50th anniversary of the original rat pack feature, we get a blu-ray high-definition transfer of this fantastic vintage film.

If you enjoy the newer films, you owe it to yourself to experience the original!  Its a great watch and a fun look back on an era that is quickly becoming forgotten.  The blu-ray features some nice commentary and a crisp picture!  The colors are of course vintage, but they pop much nicer.  There is no grain to speak of on the screen.  This one looks fantastic.

Interest Range: Classic Film, The Rat Pack
