I love Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven. Loosely based on the Rat Pack-starring 1960 film (that Nick inexplicably loves), Soderbergh managed to create that rarest of marvels, a remake that far exceeds the original, and what is in my opinion a pretty damn perfect film that never fails to entertain me. Regardless of how much I do still enjoy the sequels, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, it’s difficult to argue that they are in any way comparable to that first film. What they do have, though, is the same team, and that’s what we’re talking about today. Across the three films there’s a total of thirteen key members to the Ocean heist gang, not counting the bit-players and more minor characters, and here’s my run-down of the worst to the best.
