If you want a translated version of the picture and sound part, there you go:
Steven Soderbergh does with "Ocean's 13" once again a deep clutch in the visual trick box and presents a film which was made unfamiliar very optically. This strikes at first sight, above all, by the warm and loud colours which are so strongly overwound predominantly that one is not sure whether the film should really play on the earth and not on Mars. In many scenes clear colour rushing becomes also apparent. The contrast allows to illuminate the pictures in field recordings. However, shades or indoor photographs seem too dark also often. Unfortunately, the whole alienations also have the side effect that the picture sharpness only seldom really persuasive HDTV level achievedly the pictures separate even in close-ups always a little bit softly remain and also the grieselige colour rushing to the picture detail takes. For the compression this picture is an extreme challenge, in the end, it is worth, the whole impurities of the film still in addition to do not make unfamiliar. However, even with the coloured Film-Intro with the coloured stripes which lie down before the alerter's logo and look already almost in such a way, as if they came from a test picture generator, the VC-1 compression does not go to the knees separate produced as opposed to DVD an absolutely genuine picture.
Sound-technically "Ocean's 13" of the line smashed by the predecessors remains loyal and offers surely frontlastige Abmischung which incorporates only seldom the Surround canals and also is dialog-stressed all together very much. The dominating sound element is of the Music built up from different jazz melodies a score. His sounds are partial very much loudly, however let miss also some dynamism in the bass area and transparence by the heights what still does not diminish the artificial-cool atmosphere of the film.
