It's not funny, the characters aren't charming, and worst of all for a thriller - there's no suspense. Even the sound tracking lacked punch. The characters also lack believability - they don't convince anyone they are criminals, hackers, grifters or anything of the sort. I can't really think of anything good to say about this film - it'll genuinely put you to sleep.

Confession time: I'd not seen the original "Oceans" films before.With the bombarding marketing campaigns all over the net and IRL, plus thanks to kiiinda recognizing the name from somewhere, I ended up checking this film out.Walked out of theater kinda confused. The film was just... nothing special. But maybe it's the cinema magic of a huge silver screen + magnificent audio devices shaking you up, resulting this small feeling of rush in my blood, that kinda made the experience more intense.Fast forward to present day, present time (AHAHA!), and I have finally watched the first two of the older Oceans movies. All I can ask is: What the heck happened??The quality difference between originals and this new "reboot" is night and day! And NOT in the favor for the 2018 movie, that is. The character chemistry, pacing, even the basic cinematography in the 11 and 12 are so high above anything the 8 has to offer, that it feels like an insult to even call the latter a part of the same series. You may call this new film a "spinoff", but even spinoffs can be made to work and feel like part of the original IP.It has now come to my knowledge that Ocean's Eight is starting to shape up to be a big flop, and that is no surprise for me. It's even more pathetic seeing how the actors and the marketing folks behind the film are now stirring up some controversy in order to silence down any and all critics. Huge minus in respect points for that too.
Ok, so here's an idea - if those whole "me too" and "time's up" movement is doing so well currently and if there is a myriad of movies to choose from which would ultimately make a good idea idea for a female-led summer blockbuster, why would you then choose a franchise that was extremely successful and earned a lot of money, instead of, you know, starting your own franchise? I guess we still need male ideas in a female world.
Or maybe it's just that you've been spoon fed the idea this is a movie for women because it's by women for women. Well, not it's not, not even remotely. The movie was written and directed by a man who barely understands guys, let alone women. If you think the guy who wrote Lassie and the Hunger Games should direct a movie that is 90% women, then you will get a male perspective of a women's revenge story. I wish the people involved had employed one of the many visionary female directors and given them card blanche. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it way more than a complete carbon copy of the Ocean's movies, with little to no ingenuity and so much forced exposition, that you'd think the moviegoers are mentally handicapped.
Most of the characters are so badly written, with no growth or anything that would make them relatable. This movie is an insult to anybody's intellect. I hate seeing several great actresses squandered, but then again, it's their time... If you go into this movie and like it, that will be amazing. It has a lot of great scenes and choreography that works well within the movie, but other than that, I felt insulted and bored, but mostly bored.
