Ocean's Eleven

Daniel Ocean is released on parole after a four-year jail sentence for theft and immediately starts planning the robbery a high-security vault shared by three Las Vegas casinos. He tracks down his right-hand man and together they assemble a team of eleven guys including an explosives expert, a pickpocket par excellence, two getaway drivers, a card sharp, a geeky electronics genius, and a Chinese acrobat.
It soon transpires that Danny's real goal is to win back his ex-wife and bankrupt the man she's currently dating (who just happens to own the three casinos at the center of the heist).

Plot hole: Where do the flyers come from that are in the bags that are carried out of the vault and into the van? Danny and Linus couldn't have taken them down there and there is no room with the Chinese man. They are carried out to the van before the SWAT team appears, which means they'd have to have been in the vault to start with? In the commentary by Steven Soderbergh he acknowledges that there's no explanation. (01:35:05)
