Amsterdam isn't built on poles. That house in the movie just was
(which I don't know if that has ever been done here, don't think
so). A lot of Amsterdam sequences where cut I think (I know
bicycle chase was shot). The trainstation is not in Amsterdam,
that was shot in the city of Alkmaar. The Europol building was
a government (I think mayor's office) building of The Hague.

I can't remember much other specifics about the portrayal of
Amsterdam. If you have some specifics in mind, let me know
(oh, the scene where they leave the hotel in football clothes
was shot in Amsterdam and was one of the very few scenes
I actually saw being shot).

I saw Ocean's 12 by default because Life Aquatic was sold out (2 months ago when it was in limited release). Man it was terrible. I was amazed that it was Soderberg's movie - the whole time I thought it was a shot by a film school student. I loved Ocean's 11, this was definitely a dissapointment. I stayed until the end just to see how they were going to attempt to tie everything together.

I actually thought the movie was not that bad. But what the hell are you guys talking about when you're saying it was shot on DV? I must have been blindfolded(or very intoxicated) while seeing it, because I didn't notice any poor image quality that you are referring to.

I searched around the net and couldn't find any information about the format it was shot on, but think about a couple of things. If it was shot on DV wouldn't that be publicized everywhere? When Soderberg did it before, everyone knew about it. Not the case on Ocean's 12. And also, do you really think Soderberg is dumb enough to use DV on a safety film like this? I can understand him using it on an art flick, but I really doubt it.

Just my .02

It was shot on 35mm film. The remark in concern to DV was (I believe)
made because someone saw a bad illegal copy that was probably
taped with a camera inside the cinema....
