OCEAN'S 8 (M) When she is re­leased from jail af­ter a five-year stint, Deb­bie Ocean (San­dra Bul­lock), sis­ter of Danny Ocean, as­sem­bles an allfe­male group of friends and new ac­quain­tances to earn a quick few mil­lion bucks. Her am­bi­tious plan is to steal an ex­pen­sive neck­lace off the neck of su­per­star ac­tress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hath­away) at the an­nual Met Gala. The cast is loaded with A-list stars (in­clud­ing Cate Blanchett) and the story is in­trigu­ing, with some stun­ning fash­ion on dis­play, but the de­liv­ery is sur­pris­ingly flat, with lit­tle tension or threat and few laughs. How­ever, the heist it­self and how it all un­folds is a treat to watch.
