Despite some rough parts, Ocean's Twelve's a fine ride

Ocean's Twelve proves to be something out of the ordinary, beginning with the opening scene with the charming Brad Pitt.

Director Steven Soderbergh had kept some of his original elements from his Ocean's Eleven, and added some new twists. Ocean's Twelve involves the tricky jobs of stealing for money, the troubled relationship between Danny (George Clooney) and Tess (Julia Roberts), and the addictive eating habits of Rusty (Pitt).

The plot itself is patchy but is cleared up near the end with much explanation just like the first movie.

Ocean's Twelve carries a personality all its own. Adding a feminine touch to its plot, Tess plays a part in one of the gang's jobs and Rusty's ex-girlfriend Isabel (Catherine Zeta-Jones) plans to make Ocean's gang do jail time. The different camera styles are unique, but unfortunately, the most prominent that really stood out was the "hand-held" feel. At times, I felt nauseous and seasick.

Ocean's Twelve is like a newborn baby -- you have to deal with the bad moments, but it's worthwhile in the end.
