We received a copy for review. All opinions are my own. I love the Ocean’s movie series, so when I first heard about Ocean’s 8, I was very excited – especially since it packed with many of my favorite female favs. Ocean’s 8 is packed with humor, a great storyline, and twists and turns that will leave you entertained until the credits roll. Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are fantastic together and I love their on-screen roles.
ABOUT OCEAN’S 8
Five years, eight months, 12 days…and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock)—just released from prison—has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career.
She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling), street con Constance (Awkwafina), expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna) and fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter).
The target is $150 million in diamonds—diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be flawless if the team is to get in and get away—all in plain sight.
Having this much fun is a crime. Team up in the action adventure when “Ocean’s 8” arrives on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition and Digital.
