Poorly executed.

Just watched Ocean's Twelve tonight and boy was it a stinker. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie was horribly complex for a heist movie (which usually isn't a bad thing but this was a complicated mess that made no sense whatsoever). The twists were juvenile at best and the big reveal at the end was such a letdown.
For those who have seen the Ocean's Eleven (the remake, not the original), that had class. There was a level of complexity much like a large ball of yarn where if you unravelled it all, it formed one linear narrative that was so simple that it made you think "WOW!". The sequel unfortunately was a large ball of yarn that unravelled into threads that made you go "uhm...".
All in all, a poorly executed movie with an even more irritatingly simplistic reveal at the end which does not justify the 2 plus hours of sitting through it.
