This was a wonderful heist movie with girl power at its best (unlike the horrendous Ghostbuster reboot) that showcases a fast paced written script that starts off with the release of Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) from prison and how she quickly establishes her con skills are still razor sharp as she reconnects with a friend/colleague Lou (Cate Blanchett) and how she convinces her of her idea and forms the crew needed to pull off this jewel heist at the Met Gala. Okay, it revisits the same themes as previous Ocean's (insert a number) movies but to its credit, the actors were all believable in their characters and the chemistry was on par and there was never a boring scene in the movie. The girls were all magnificent in their roles and the ending was satisfying. There’s lots of jewelries, beautiful dresses, a cameo of Serena Williams, Heidi Klum and Anna Wintour to name a few and also actors from the past (Marlo Thomas, Dana Ivey) that makes this little gem that much more sparkly! Now, that’s girl power at its best!
