Oceans 8 is everything I wanted it to be. I feel it emulated the 2001 Oceans 11 in a beautiful way, without feeling overly much like a knockoff reboot. Don't get me wrong, there were reboot feeling moments, but all in all I found it to be a very enjoyable movie.
Nobody can argue that the trilogy was any kind of great cinematic masterpiece, but I personally feel that they're some of my favorite movies. Because of this I was inclined to enjoy this more than I might have otherwise, but I still feel it held up.
The characters really felt like a natural fresh crew for the job, and I feel like everybody fell into their rolls smoothly. I'm especially a fan of Cate Blanchett. She filled the role of Brad Pitt's Rusty perfectly.
I'm excited to see what all comes from this. Personally I'm hoping for a franchise reboot, but I suppose I'll have to wait and see.
