The Ocean's movies were among my favorite ensemble movies growing up. I loved watching all the great actors battle each other's wits while maintaining a very intense heist thriller. When I heard about Ocean's 8 I was pleasantly surprised. After watching the trailer I wasn't as excited anymore. After watching the movie I waited three days to write a review. It's a pleasant two hours that went by reasonably quick but nothing memorable stands out. There isn't much time developing the characters into likable people, which leads to a monotone heist. The actors are all enjoyable but not dedicated. Anne Hathaway is a highlight- being the only character to have an arc also helps.
