Critic Reviews for Logan Lucky
Soderbergh films the movie with swing, relishing the overlapping and intertwining strands of the complex plot, the brightly lit personalities of the characters it involves, and the magnificently conceived, essential tiny details ...
Soderbergh directs with his trademark pace and panache, but to this he adds an obvious affection for his hapless hillbilly heroes.
It's always supremely watchable, but rarely, if ever, commits itself to genuine jeopardy or suspense.
We admire the cheek and chic of how it's done. We wonder quite why it was thought worth doing.
Audience Reviews for Logan Lucky
From Steven Soderbergh comes Logan Lucky, an entertaining and comedic heist film. After losing his job Jimmy Logan plans to rob a local NASCAR speedway and puts together a team to help him. Starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, and Katie Holmes, the cast is pretty decent; however, the performances are rather lackluster. And the heist itself is pretty clichéd and hits a lot of the usual tropes. Still, the comedy works fairly well and there are some exciting scenes as the heist is pulled off and complications arise. Logan Lucky has its moments and is kind of fun at times, but it been done a hundred times before...and better.
Soderbergh leaves his alleged retirement to deliver us this entertaining (yet uneven) caper that may not be remarkable but benefits from a good ensemble cast, even if the movie suffers from problems of pacing and relies on a sense of humor that doesn't always work.
The joke here is that rednecks are considered a joke, but the film does not take that limited view even for the sake of a cheap laugh. So then, now let's have some fun. What if The Thomas Crown Affair and Duck Dynasty were brother and sister and then had kids? The trick of heist films is getting the viewers to side with the criminals, and thusly enjoy outsmarting the cops, the fuzz, the heat, 5-0, and this film supplies that high. On top of that there is the added joy of a cast that enjoys that just as much as the audience, so we get to watch them live it up. This film has that too. Throw in a little A-MUR-I-CA love, and you've got yourself a kick at the flickers.
