What are the odds of getting even? Danny Ocean and the gang would have only one reason to pull off their most ambitious and riskiest casino heist–to defend one of their own. But they’re going to need more than luck on their side to break The Bank. Ruthless casino owner Willy Bank never imagined that the odds were against him when he double-crossed Danny Ocean’s friend and mentor Reuben Tishkoff, putting the distraught Reuben in a hospital bed in critical condition. But Bank miscalculated–badly. He may have taken down one of the original Ocean’s eleven, but he left the others standing and, worse for him, gave them a shared purpose: to take Bank down on the night of what should be his greatest triumph–the grand opening of his new casino, appropriately named The Bank. Their strategy is twofold. First they will ruin him financially by turning the tables on the precept that the house always wins. But that’s just money. The knockout punch will be to Bank’s personal pride and joy: his reputation as the only hotelier who has earned the Royal Review Board’s Five Diamond Award on every single one of his hotels. The plan is elaborate, dangerous and damn near impossible–but there are no limits when it comes to one of their own.

Ocean’s Thirteen was the third installment of the Oceans’ collection. I thought it was just as witty as the last two with jam packed action and comedy. The dialog between Brad Pitt and George Clooney Characters’ are hilarious as usual. The chemistry between all the actors make this HD-DVD worth watching. The Image and Audio quality is greatly displayed on HD-DVD. The crisp detailing will keep your eyes locked in and the sound quality is also an attention grabber. Overall I rate this HD-DVD a 5 out of 5 because plain and simple, it was just that good. So be sure to add Oceans Thirteen to your collection.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh. With George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bernie Mac, Andie Garcia, Don Cheadle, and Al Pachino
