In a summer of part-three’s, Ocean’s Thirteen is the best. It’s lean, leaner even than Ocean’s Eleven, and it knows exactly what it’s doing. Most importantly, it also knows how to get where it’s going; in a season marked by glut and rambling one-damn-thing-after-another plots, Ocean’s Thirteen is admirable in its single mindedness. It’s a far cry from greatness, but there’s a certain species of brisk entertainment to be found here. One might even find it refreshing.
