OCEAN'S 8
January 12, 2019  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 2018 heist movie is a distaff spinoff of the Ocean’s 11 franchise, with Sandra Bullock, as Debbie Ocean, planning and leading a daring robbery that is equal parts audacity and revenge. A priceless necklace worn at a charity gala by a glamorous actress (played by glamorous actress Anne Hathaway) is the target, but a lot more is happening here. That includes a female-centered action film, making room for, among others, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter – and Rihanna, whose costume at the charity gala makes her the leading candidate as the 21st century’s most stunningly memorable Woman in Red.
