About as entertaining as you can imagine a redneck version of an 'OCEANS' movie being.
'LOGAN LUCKY': Four Stars (Out of Five)
The new heist-comedy from director Steven Soderbergh, his first film in almost 4 years (after officially retiring). The script was written by first time feature screenwriter Rebecca Blunt (although some suspect that's an alias for someone else), and the film stars Channing Tatum (who's acted in Soderbergh's last four theatrical films now), Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane, Jack Quaid, Brian Gleeson, Katie Holms, Katherine Waterston, Hillary Swank and Dwight Yoakam. It tells the story of three siblings plotting to rob the Coca-Cola 600 race (in Concord, North Carolina), during Memorial Day weekend. It's received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics, but it's also underperformed at the Box Office so far. The movie feels a lot like a redneck version of an 'OCEANS' movie (which Soderbergh has said was his main reason for coming out of retirement to do it), so it's about as entertaining as you can imagine that being.
Jimmy (Tatum), Clyde (Driver) and Mellie Logan (Keough) are three hard working siblings in Concord, North Carolina. Jimmy believes that the three's current bad luck is due to a family curse. Hoping to reverse the curse, Jimmy plots a very complicated robbery; which ends up taking place at the Coca-Cola 600 race (on Memorial Day weekend). The entire preparation, and execution, of the robbery plays out just like a redneck version of an 'OCEANS' movie (like I already said).
The film is funny, and it's definitely cleverly written and competently directed. The performances are all good as well, especially Daniel Craig (and it's nice to see him giving a great performance outside of a Bond flick). The heist is a little too overcomplicated though (like the 'OCEANS' trilogy), but it is fun to watch (even if it's hard to keep up with at times). I like Steven Soderbergh films, but I think he's just a little too much 'style over substance'. The characters are all well developed in this though (like all of his movies), but maybe just a little too cartoonish and clichéd at times (like a lot of his films are as well). It's pretty much everything you'd expect from a Soderbergh movie, and nothing more. So it that sounds good to you, you'll probably enjoy it.
