Ocean’s 8 is a 2018 American heist comedy. It was written by Gary Ross and Olivia Milch. The film stars Bullock in the lead role, with supporting acts from Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway.

Ocean’s 8 Plot

Five years, eight months, 12 days and counting – that’s how long Debbie Ocean has been devising the biggest heist of her life. And pulling it off will take a team of the best people in the field, including her partner-in-crime, Lou Miller.

Together, they recruit a crew of specialists, including jeweller Amita, street con Constance, suburban mom Tammy, hacker Nine Ball, and fashion designer Rose. Their target – a necklace that’s worth more than $150m.

Best quote from Ocean’s 8

“Oh, my God! Taylor Swift! You’re so white! Can’t we just go to this? Do we have to steal stuff?”

Critics’ reviews

Matthew Norman from the London Evening Standard described the movie as “forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, while Christopher Orr from The Atlantic said the heist itself is a “moderately ingenious idea.”

Matthew Lucas from Front Row said the cast was fun to watch, while Kaitlyn Booth from Bleeding Cool said:

“Ocean’s 8 has perfectly captured what made the George Clooney era of movies so good with a fantastic cast, a great sense of style, and a twist that will leave you grinning.”
