So for the first time I had actually sat down and watched an Ocean’s film. Ocean’s 8 to be precise. I’ve never really been interested in them purely because I never really paid any attention to them before. After seeing the film advertised on Rihanna’s Instagram and finding out she’s actually in the film, I actually thought it might just be worth the watch. Who doesn’t love a bit of RiRi?
I have quite a mixed bag of feelings about the film, some great, some not so great. Now I’ve not seen many crime films based around a female character. The only one I can remember thoroughly is Lucy (which I found quite good), so to be able to watch a group of females come together to pull off a heist, sounds like it’d be pretty incredible.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say the film didn’t have a comedy aspect. It literally made me laugh out loud and carry on laughing for a good few minutes after. However, some parts I personally felt dragged and seemed just that little bit surreal. There weren’t as many details put into the actual planning of the heist compared to a film where there is a male lead for example, Star Wars.
Despite being classed as an action/crime film, I felt that Ocean’s 8 could’ve had more action. The plot was planned out with minimal physical interaction. There were no explosions or any scenes that got my heart racing thinking “are they going to make it, are they going to be okay?!” There was definitely that crime aspect there, with Rihanna playing the role of a hacker, knowing exactly what to do and how to do it.
If I was to rate this film, here at HHK I think Ocean’s 8 would be a 6/10. Purely because of how much I laughed.
