Ocean’s 8 Review

10 Jun

With the exception of Hathaway, the entirety of this project feels like an assemblage of lifeless, recycled products, all pieces needed to pitch it in this reboot era and nothing more. The first act hastily throws together the team with little motivation or personality, and the last act (which spends way too much time on James Corden) is overlong and treats its twists like obligatory exposition dumps. The heist itself can be mildly entertaining, but it’s still severely lacking in energy. Suffice to say: Gary Ross should not have directed this movie. For a movie that’s supposed to be surface level, it still manages to be too surface level.
