"Ocean's 8" is a casually winning heist movie, no more and no less, but like countless films devoted to the exploits of cool male criminals, it lingers most...as a proudly scurrilous gallery of role models.

Resisting its mischievous spirit is simply impossible. How often is a group of skilled women allowed to be bad?

A lot of this is fun to watch but would have been more breezily enjoyable if the movie played as lightly (and seriously) with gender as much as it does with genre.

It's made watchable thanks to the cast but star power alone cannot mask creative inadequacy. Stealing a diamond necklace is bad but wasting an opportunity like this is unforgivable.

The choreography of the scam is almost upstaged by the gang's costume changes. They're spectacular.

There are some moments of clever misdirection, last-minute hitches and double-crossing, no little art amongst the cinematography and editing and a terrific performance from Hathaway.

Entirely enjoyable and worthy, but one can't help but wonder what a stronger vision behind the camera may have produced.

It's savvy enough to recognise that politics and pulchritude make excellent bedfellows.

There's...something dispiritingly mechanical about the movie that makes it seem a missed opportunity.

It lacks the jazzy swagger of Soderbergh's trio but delivers a fun, likeable romp built on the charm and charisma of its cast.

Its rather dull and lacklustre; with acceptable performances, an uninspired plot and mediocre directing - although it does pack some style to it.

The Oceans series was all about a smart plan executed with skill and guile...This one is not. The plan fails before it even takes off and a new one is formed on the basis of absurdity - but then crazy twists convey stupidity beyond basic logic -Felt a mass consensus "don't insult our intelligence" with audible WTFs and C'mon from a dissapointed cinema...

I think a lot of people seemed to think this was going to be a stinker but it's not, far from it. It also isn't this transformation of witty dialogue and zippy performances. Its somewhere in between. A Heist all girl fim that's entertaining if not especially original but all these lovely ladies are exceptional and I had a ball watching. Its what I paid for...

I actually started to snooze during this film, but maybe I shouldn't watch movies when I'm sleepy? I went along on a date and the woman sitting next to me enjoyed it but said it wasn't great. I was hoping at least the female audience would find something of interest in this, given the all-female cast. But it's not a 'girls kicking ass' movie and its not...
