The last time we saw Danny Ocean's crew, they were paying back ruthless casino mogul Terry Benedict after stealing millions from him. However, it's been a while since they've come back together, which is all about to change. When one of their own, Reuben Tishkoff, builds a hotel with another casino owner, Willy Bank, the last thing he ever wanted was to get cut out of the deal personally by the loathsome Bank. Bank's attitude even goes so far as to finding the amusement in Tishkoff's misfortune when the double crossing lands Reuben in the hospital because of a heart attack. However, Danny and his crew won't stand for Bank and what he's done to a friend. Uniting with their old enemy Benedict, who himself has a vendetta against Bank, the crew is out to pull off a major plan; one that will unfold on the night Bank's newest hot spot opens up. They're not in this for the money, but for the revenge. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(ru) wrote: Sam Shepard is decent, the scenery and cinematography are excellent and the setting is right, but the story is a little ridiculous and it has no pulse or excitement. The supporting actors aren't very good and the movie needs more energy.

Not at all what this movie is about, it's a true story of horrible child abuse, very depressing to watch. I bought this movie based on flixters wrong description , not very pleased with expecting a horror movie and instead I get a movie that depressed the hell out of me. Thanks Flixter !

Against the odds, he comes to love Kolya, and himself, before ultimately losing him, paying for his earlier misdeeds. A modern tragedy set amid the euphoric end of Communism in Prague.

(br) wrote: Robert Wise's venture conveying that the truth can be adjusted. Quite a deceptive story of miscarriage of justice for someone who learns about this factual case from the movie. And Susan Hayward's performance was way too mediocre to be Oscar-worthy. As a work of fiction based on actual events, the movie isn't an absolute rubbish. The last half hour is a drag, though.

I had no words; I posted a two- or three-sentence review to Amazon. I wrote this over a year later; by that time, I'd watched it at least fifty times, including three times in a row when IFC played it for six hours back to back the night they premiered it. In that initial Amazon review I called it maybe the best movie ever made; thirteen years and change later, as of this writing, it is still #1 on my thousand best movies list; only a single movie,Hotaru no Haka, has ever even come close to dethroning it.]Usually, I give a film five stars when it contains no flaws at all, when it's so unerringly perfect that it's impossible not to like. This time, I give a film five stars (the twenty-third film ever to get five stars, for those who are counting) despite flaws. Before Night Falls is that good.Before Night Falls is based on the memoir of the same name by Cuban author Reynaldo Arenas, who ran away from home as an adolescent to join the rebel armies moving against Batista in 1958. Shortly thereafter, Castro came into power, and as Arenas grew up and became a writer, he was soon made to realize that there was no place for him in the world he'd helped to set up.Javier Bardem, who plays Arenas from the writer's early twenties until his death in 1990, is a revelation. Best Actor isn't good enough to recognize and celebrate Bardem's complex and wrenching performance. He and Schnabel have the same understanding of Arenas' story, and the same desire in presenting it. While Schnabel contrasts the sere beauty of the Cuban landscape (and the even more sere beauty Arenas tries to evoke from the ugliness of New York City later in life), Bardem constantly reminds us that Arenas' life wasn't only about being oppressed, but about the simple joys of quotidian life in Cuba. The contrasts inherent in the film make the inevitable twists of the knife just a bit harder to take each time, and the cumulative effect is devastating.There are some difficulties with the film. Many of the accents fade in and out of recognizability, to the point where the average American viewer will probably not understand what's being said in a few places, especially early on in the film. The general bent of what's being said is never lost, however. The pacing is inconsistent, as well, and the film drags ever so slightly in a couple of places. Both of these problems are forgivable within the greater framework, as Schnabel, first-time scriptwriter Cunningham O'Keefe, and Bardem come together with a spectacular ensemble cast (highlighted by Johnny Depp, once again showing up for less than five minutes in a film, this time in a double role) to create not only the best film of the year by far, but a film that, if there is any justice in the world, is destined to be remembered as one of the finest pieces of cinematic work ever committed to film. Finds a place very high up on the 100 Best list-perhaps at the top. *****

(mx) wrote: Spy Kids: An In-Depth Look at Juni The movie Spy Kids, written and directed by Robert Rodriguez, is an action-based romantic love story that revolves around the lifestyle of the Cortez family. However, the Cortez?s are not your typical day to day family; mother Ingrid Cortez and father Gregorio Cortez have a secret past identity of being top secret spy agents. Currently retired from the field and trying to live a ?normal? lifestyle, their two children Carmen and Juni go on an adventure of a lifetime when they have to rescue their parents from evil enemies from the past. Juni Cortez is an insecure pre-teenager who lives in the world of a fantastical television show. Juni is perceived as weak, wimpy, and naive when compared to his older teenager sister, Carmen. Through the visualization of numerous scenes in the movie, it is clearly shown that Juni has not yet discovered his place and purpose in life and, therefore, constantly gets bullied by others in his school and home environment. However, towards the middle and end of the film, Juni finds his true identity and develops the personality and characteristics of the type of person he has always wished to be. As displayed in the beginning, middle, and end of the film, Juni represents an important message and overall theme to the movie as a whole. When analyzing the young teenager as an individual, it is clear that a central theme of his character is that one must discover who they truly are and realize their purpose in life before they can ?blossom? into the person they wish to one day become. In the beginning of the film, Juni is perceived as a physically and mentally weak young boy who is caught in his own immature world of imaginary monsters and characters. Because his weakness is so evident to other observers, he is constantly bullied by his peers at school and even by his own sister, Carmen. One scene displays Carmen and Juni performing their daily morning ?workout,? which consist of a mini-ropes that works towards increasing the children?s physical activity. Juni struggles to swing on the metal bars because he suffers from extremely painful warts on the tips of his fingers. When he is not able to make it across and suddenly falls to the ground in pain, Carmen scolds him and calls the young boy hideous names such as ?butterfingers.? The warts on Juni?s hands are a main symbol throughout the movie that represent his inner traits of being insecure and unconfident in himself. Another scene in particular displays Juni being bullied by a classmate at school because he carries around toy dolls from his favorite television show ?Floops Monsters.? When confronted and teased by the school bully, Juni does not stand up for himself and simply accepts the brutal treatment he is receiving. I feel that Juni is inspired and intrigued by the central message of Floop?s television show, which constantly reminds children to believe in themselves and that their dreams will come true. In one scene in the beginning of the movie, Juni states that he wishes he ?could be a character in Floop?s TV show so his dreams could come true.? When watching this particular scene, it became clearly evident that Juni is searching for something and wanting to be in a place where he feels accepted. Through watching the monster television show, he wishes he could be apart of that because he knows he can be accepted for his true self there. While Juni is fighting his internal battle of self-discovery, he makes a remarkable turn in a different direction towards the middle of the movie. After Ingrid and Georgito get kidnapped by the antiheroes, Carmen and Juni quickly realize their parents past secret identity of holding titles of prestigious government spies. At this point in the movie, the siblings are left to fight off the remaining villains and fend for themselves in their own home. Juni takes his first leap of faith of discovering his true identity when he successfully pushes a green button on an underwater submarine located in the body of water outside the house. Pushing the button leads to the effective start up of of the machine and starts the sibling?s adventure to hide in the family ?safe house.? Without having pushed the green button, Carmen and Juni would have never made it to the safe house and could have potentially become prisoners just like their parents. When the children arrive at the family safe house, they find plentiful amounts of spy gear including protective clothing and weapons. However, the evil spies manage to find the children?s location and track them down. Once again, Carmen and Juni find themselves in a combat battle, only this time, advancing the fight using their newly discovered, high-tech spy technology. Juni takes another leap of faith and gains more confidence in himself when he spits paralyzing gum onto the enemies and manages to immobilize multiple villains. Additionally, a noticeable change occurs regarding Juni?s bandaged fingers. After the defeat of numerous villains, Juni unveils the bandages on his hands, revealing that the warts on his fingers are starting to heal. The warts at this stage in the film represent Juni growing out of his old identity and gaining confidence in preparation to form into his new individuality. After this scene, the siblings make an indiscrete landing in the middle of a downtown clothing store. Here, Carmen and Juni change their attire and walk out of a clothing store looking clean, put together, and ready for a mission. A noticeable change occurs when Juni clothes himself in the black, sleek spy gear; it is almost as if he is putting on a new identity, but isn?t quite sure if he fits into the disguise yet. When Carmen and Juni finally reach the castle where their parents are being held hostage, they quickly formulate a plan. At this point in the movie, Juni has realized the palace is actually Floop?s TV show location. He gains enough confidence to lead his sister in the adventure of finding their parents and takes the initiative to come up with the idea of placing microscopic cameras around the hallways so they can keep track of certain guards? location. Juni also devises the idea to communicate with the deformed monsters from Floop?s television show to find out where their parents are being held hostage in the bastion. In one scene, Juni confronts Floop himself and tells him that he is not scared of what he has to offer and actually convinces Floop to side with them to help save their hostage-held parents. This demonstrates Juni?s final stage of maturing into his newly formed identity, which allows him to think quickly and formulate successful plans. After fighting numerous battles, Juni and Carmen find the location of their parents and rescue them from the tied bonds. At this point in the movie, Juni?s warts have completely vanished, representing the shedding of his old identity and the molding process into his new character. Juni is praised by all family members for his hard work, quick thinking, and leadership skills through out the entire mission, which ultimately gives him the closure he needed to discovered his true identity. Juni was an interesting and intriguing character to observe in the movie Spy Kids. In the beginning of the film, the young boy was perceived as weak, helpless, and naive to his surroundings. However, as the film progressed and the boy discovered his true identity, he started blossoming into the person he always wished he could be. In Juni?s instance, self-discovery played a key role in forming the characteristics that compose his self image and identity. By believing in himself and following his heart, Juni realized the place he belonged in his misfit world and discovered his true propose as a Cortez family spy kid.
