Synopsis


Logan Lucky
Two down-on-their-luck brothers (Channing Tatum and Adam Driver), fed up by their dismal economic prospects, plot an elaborate heist at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. When their plan calls for an explosives expert, they attempt to recruit an eccentric convict named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) -- but securing his help will require breaking him out of prison. Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, and Sebastian Stan co-star. Logan Lucky is the first feature film directed by Steven Soderbergh following a four-year hiatus. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    A Surprisingly Warm Comedy

    The advertising for “Logan Lucky” includes the advertising slogan, “See how the other half steals,” and much of the publicity emphasizes the picture is directed by the filmmaker responsible for the popular heist comedy “Ocean’s 11.” The suggestion is that “Logan Lucky” is a sort of distaff “Ocean’s 11,” featuring unsophisticated rural Southerners instead of glib and glamorous Las Vegas wiseguys. And while that description is not exactly inaccurate, it’s also not quite to the picture itself. The difference is in the picture’s sense of warmth: Far from satirizing his cast of characters, director Steven Soderbergh actually embraces them, and in the process creates a oddly heartwarming comedy in which the audience finds itself rooting against the traditional good guys, in favor of a demographic which usually doesn’t receive much of a break in the popular American lexicon. “Logan Lucky” details the adventures of an unemployed West Virginia construction worker who, at the end of his financial rope, hatches a scheme to rob the massive Charlotte Motor Speedway during the popular annual Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race. And in order to carry off the heist, the would-be master criminal needs to recruit the most colorful group of accomplices this side of Mayberry…or “Deliverance.” Written by Rebecca Blunt—thought to be a pseudonym for either the director’s wife or Soderbergh himself—the script renders most of the characters underwritten, incomplete, and lacking in motivation. But instead of being a detriment to the picture, the absence of character complexity works in the movie’s favor, allowing a remarkably talented group of players the additional space to inhabit their characters more fully. Led by the baleful and laconic Channing Tatum as the unemployed and desperate Jimmy Logan, some of the actors invest their roles so successfully that you’ll have trouble recognizing even a few of the more familiar faces. Among those who all but vanish into their characters are Sebastian Stan, from the Marvel “Captain America” series of pictures, as a member of the Logan Gang, and country music legend Dwight Yoakum as a prison warden. And even two-time Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank turns up relatively late in the game, as a straight-as-an-arrow FBI agent trying to crack the credibility-straining heart of the caper. In the meantime, the entire cast works together beautifully. Particularly noteworthy are Adam Driver, sporting an accent which leans more toward Missouri than West Virginia as Jimmy’s partially-disabled Gulf War veteran brother Clyde, and a ridiculously funny Daniel Craig as the gang’s demolitions expert, the appropriately-named Joe Bang. If the usually dour and humorless Craig is capable of this kind of relaxed and engaging comedy performance, it’s no wonder he reportedly feels restricted by his association with the phenomenally popular James Bond series of pictures. It’s tough to not like a picture in which part of the main character’s unlikely motivation as a criminal is to be a better parent to his daughter. And despite the more colorful, exciting, and sometimes even nail-bitingly suspenseful elements of the plot, the emotional climax of “Logan Lucky” is actually the daughter’s serenading her father with an off-key rendition of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Road.” Better yet, the scene works. “Logan Lucky” depends somewhat on the audience’s playing along with its unlikely scenario from the first scene until the picture’s enormously satisfying conclusion, but that’s easy to do in a picture as friendly and eager-to-please as this one. The last scene seems to leave a door open for a sequel. Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s 11” spawned “Ocean’s 12” and “Ocean’s 13.” Let’s hope that “Logan Lucky” can also spread around some of that good fortune.

    Logan a Lucky Surprise

    If you are a fan of the rebooted "Ocean's Eleven" series, directed by Steven Soderburgh and starring a full house of Hollywood heavyweights, then you might get into this country bumpkin cousin--an amiable heist film set in the rural hills of West Virginia and North Carolina, starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and an off-the-rails Daniel Craig. Tatum and Driver are the brothers Logan, part of a clan famous for being unlucky. Life seems to happen to them, which might explain why they decide to get even by robbing the Charlotte Speedway during a NASCAR race. Their plan incorporates the Bang family, led by Craig, who are religious bumpkins who like blowing things up, and the brothers' sharper-than-a-razor sister Mellie, played with sass by Riley Keogh. The execution of the plan riffs on the same vibes that Soderburgh used so well with Clooney and his crew in "Ocean's Eleven." Seth McFarlane, Dwight Yoakum, and Hillary Swank lend able support.

    When this Blu-ray was first released I didn't even consider buying it. But as I started to do some research when expanding my collection of Dolby Vision 4K Blu-ray's, I noticed this one. I was very surprised by the great story with an intricate plot and some really neat twists and turns, and by the gorgeous picture quality. Beautifully clear, no noise or grain, and vibrant color. Daniel Craig, as usual, is fantastic. All that, coupled with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, made this one of the (very unexpected) favorites in my 4K Blu-ray collection!

    Surprise heist movie

    I saw this in theaters because my ex girlfriend wanted to see it. I was surprised how much I ended up liking it and how little she did. This movie doesn't try to be funny and it ends up making you laugh because how serious the characters are in planning a heist. It's similar to Ocean's eleven in how everything is planned out to the T, it kept me guessing what's going on and kept me entertained. Worth a watch if you're hesitant like I was.

    this movie unfortunately went under the radar went it was released in theaters, but is fantastic. you can feel the "ocean's" franchise vis-a-vis Soderbergh. although i thought it had a similar style to pulp fiction in terms of writing/dialogue. if you're looking for a hidden gem, that will entertain, and with a star-studded cast look no further than Logan Lucky.

    Wanted to see this after seeing the trailers for it and enjoyable movie to watch without needing too much thinking. Loved Daniel Craig in this he was really funny and not what I would have expected. In fact that was what had intrigued me from the trailer and made me want to see it. Will probably watch again at some stage when I want something entertaining to watch.

    I am not sure why the reviews were low and not many people went to see this, but my family loves this movie. You don't have to be a Nascar fan to like this. It is funny as heck and a bunch of fun to watch. It, also, explores how outward appearances don't always dictate the content of a person. Daniel Craig is a hoot!

    Would rate 3.5 - Solid film, not for people who expect a high budget hollywood movie. This is a film. Funny and witty. Problematic with not much diversity in the cast with a movie about the south, but comes off as a parody about how southerns are portrayed. Enjoyed the film regardless.
