'Ocean's Thirteen'

After cavorting in Europe in the dreadful “Ocean’s Twelve,” Danny Ocean and his gang are back in Vegas — actually the fancy casino used in the film was shot on the back lot at Warner Bros. in Burbank — seeking revenge upon a ruthless casino owner (Al Pacino) who had strong-armed their cohort (Elliott Gould), causing him to suffer a heart attack. Game Play: The gang rig Pacino’s state-of-the-art casino so that all players will win huge amounts of money on the building’s opening night — tampering with the slot machines to rigging the casino dice at the Mexican factory where they are made to even creating a faux earthquake in order to get everyone out of the casino.
