You must have been familiar with stories and movies where professional thieves are so expertly skillful with their stealing abilities that they could steal a very expensive artifact and manage to get away with it. This is the movie Oceans Eleven, a group of thieves teamed up together to make a big hit. Each of them has specific skills with specific roles played in their mission. Well, of course, that is to steal money.
But what made Oceans Eleven a big hit along with all its sequels? Was it the big cash that they stole? Or the fact that they were never caught red-handed? Let’s find out more in this article.
The big stars in the movie
In the first movie sequel, they gathered a lot of big and famous actors in it like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Scott Caan, and many more. It’s like a feast of great stars, combined in one movie and what will you expect – a blockbuster hit. This happened to other films like the expendables, the Italian Job, Fast and Furious, and of course, the Avengers. It seems like the gathering of massive stars was a good idea but not good at the budget. But the Oceans’ film series managed to overshoot its budget of 350 million dollars to 1.416 billion dollars in its four films.
The big getaway
It’s a crazy thing to steal millions of cash in a highly sophisticated secured place and gets away with it. But also, it’s how they orchestrated their plan that makes it watchable. All the elements in the movies are remarkably working together to get a good storyline of that great heist. But that won’t be a great heist if they were caught. The scene on how they get away with it in a very clever, smooth, and slick manner very enjoyable to watch.
The way actors handle the game
It’s not just the big heist that made it so famous but the expert touch of remarkable actors. It’s how they play their characters so perfectly that it makes people want to watch it over and over again. Remember what we mentioned that they were huge stars gathered together in one movie. So what you see is what you are going to get. Well, of course, nothing can match the smoothness of George Clooney and Brad Pitt, one factor that made the movie so successful.
