The plan was to steal the cash from the huge vaults of the three biggest casinos in ultra-secure Las Vegas, where $160 million worth of cash is collected. Danny Ocean enlists 11 of his best crime specialists to help him put his plan into action.
Overall, the storyline is stylish and can be watched without getting bored. The scene where they break into the safe was thrilling, but it was also thrilling and interesting.

I thought it was a children’s anime, but it was enough for adults who like kung fu movies like Jackie Chain to enjoy it. The action scenes using CG were cool and impressive.

Yahoo! Movie Rating: 3.61 points
Play time: 1 hour 31 minutes
In a secluded forest, a monster named Shrek lives in the middle of nowhere, feared by the people even though he actually has a kind heart. One day, those who have been banished by the bad guys who rule the country come running into the forest. Shrek and his donkey, Donkey, set out on an adventure to save the country and the princess.
There are many other characters from the fairy tale world besides the main character, so it was fun to watch and made me feel nostalgic. It was an outlaw piece that defied any previous notion of fairy tales.
4: “Charlie Mordegai: The Secret of a Masterpiece”
Starring: Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor
Yahoo! Movie Rating: 2.46 points
Play time: 1 hour 46 minutes

In order to get back on track, Charlie sets out to search for a famous painting by British intelligence, and a great battle begins involving the mafia and international terrorists who realize the value of the painting.
The setting of Johnny Depp’s character in the lead role was comical and very funny. There are a lot of comedic elements, but it’s not vulgar and it’s a safe film to watch.
5: “Tomb Raider”
What movie?: A flashy action adventure film based on an action game!
Starring: Alicia Vikander
Yahoo! Movie Rating: 3.19 points

It’s a love story between a famous Hollywood actress and a dull, ordinary man.
The story is relatively unrealistic, but the emotions of two people in love are carefully depicted, and there are many parts of the story that you can empathize with.
