Logan Lucky Reviews

August 28, 2017
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 ...
August 22, 2017
Logan Lucky is like a cheerful sing-a-long of a movie, sweeping its audience along easily, even if some of the details quickly vanish from memory.
August 19, 2017
Such is the merriment of the new movie, and so spirited is its pace, that you barely notice the wavering of the tone.
August 18, 2017
Logan Lucky is as charming and welcome as toenail fungus.

It's good to have Soderbergh back, even if he never was really away.

August 18, 2017
Steven Soderbergh's "Logan Lucky," written by Rebecca Blunt, is a down-home heist movie that comes across like a Southern-fried variation of one of his "Ocean's" films.

August 18, 2017
A slick, smarter-than-your-average-bear heist comedy that moves and grooves with all the hallmarks of a Soderbergh caper. He's back, baby.

When the plot stops cold for a beauty-pageant performance of exquisite purity, you'll feel like you're watching the most American film of the year.

August 17, 2017
Logan Lucky is a crackerjack heist film that strongly echoes Soderbergh's other crackerjack heist franchise, but with a uniquely downmarket and genuinely affectionate charm all its own.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 17, 2017
It's a lark, if you can tolerate the hammy redneck accents, and confirms that Soderbergh is as agile as ever at knitting together all the moving parts of a complex heist.

August 17, 2017
Soderbergh is in the mood for some fun, and so is a star-filled cast led by Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig.

August 17, 2017
The whole movie is a trick, reversing our expectations at nearly every turn and casting actors in roles that they were not exactly born to play, but do so with relish.
August 17, 2017
Soderbergh's return to features is a redneck riff on his Ocean's 11, a cool breeze of summertime sweetness that restores the good name of movie escapism. Daniel Craig is off-the-chain hilarious.

August 17, 2017
As a hotly anticipated comeback, it feels like a slightly dippy, ultimately disposable warm-up of a director whose brains, chops and judicious taste we need more than ever.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 17, 2017
"Logan Lucky" is his down-home version of the "Ocean's" franchise, with NASCAR instead of the Bellagio, but it's every bit as cheeky, fun and funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 17, 2017
Essentially a red-state Ocean's Eleven - a fizzy, twisty Southern-fried heist flick that's more enjoyable the less you try to dissect it.

August 17, 2017
The movie is smart and funny, though ultimately it's less noteworthy as an entertainment than as a marketing concept.
August 17, 2017
The result is a breezy, slight, Southern-flavored movie where the cast appears to be having enough fun to prove mildly infectious.
August 17, 2017
The script's vibe recalls Soderbergh's arch, knowing "Ocean's" movies, but also evokes older pictures such as "Bank Shot" in the early '70s or "Who's Minding the Mint?" in the late '60s.

If there is something wrong with "Logan Lucky," I simply can't find it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 17, 2017
Perhaps "Logan Lucky" is best appreciated as a stealth commentary on tough times in America. It takes a director of Soderbergh's gifts to actually make that funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 17, 2017
If it verges on being a little too pleased with itself for its own good, that's an acceptable price to pay for something that makes you smile.
August 17, 2017
In the very least, Hal Needham's Smokey and the Bandit films displayed a fair amount of affection amid the hamming for their shit-kicking rubes.

August 17, 2017
A precision-tooled entertainment made by experts, and sometimes more than that. Watching it is like finding money in the pocket of a coat that you haven't worn in years.

August 17, 2017
I liked the movie - it's certainly well made, and a lot of fun - but I mostly found myself laughing at it, not with it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 17, 2017
It ... feels like the director is trying to reverse-engineer one of the Coen brothers' loopier excursions and not getting every one of the pieces in order. But he comes close.

August 17, 2017
A slick, surprising summer entertainment from a terrific director who's having a helluva time just keeping everyone laughing, and guessing.

So warmheartedly enthusiastic, it's hard not to get swept away with this group of not-so-average Joes.

August 16, 2017
Logan Lucky lands somewhere between Magic Mike and the Ocean's trilogy. Turns out, that's one hell of a sweet spot.
August 16, 2017
Logan Lucky is great fun and one of the most purely entertaining movies of the year.

August 16, 2017
Mr. Soderbergh revels in squareness, and in a loose self-confidence that disguises its mastery. "Logan Lucky" is a terrific movie.
August 16, 2017
Independently financed and distributed by Soderbergh, Logan Lucky is a magnificent movie that comes disguised as a modest one. Or, as I like to call it, a Joe Bang.
August 16, 2017
Soderbergh keeps the action light and playful, and lets the cast members find their own silliness within it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 16, 2017
Southern flavor, rampant goofiness and fun twangs go a long way in making director Steven Soderbergh's cinematic return such a sparkling hoot.

August 16, 2017
It's a genuine effort by talented people that never quite comes off.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 15, 2017
Sometimes, the only reason for doing anything is to have a little fun, and Soderbergh seems to be having a lot of it.
August 15, 2017
Flaws aside, it is a darn good heist, and sure to leave you with a smile on your face. We should be glad Soderbergh is back, hopefully this time for good.
August 15, 2017
Soderbergh isn't exactly hiding a secret drama inside his barrel of laughs and twists. But his comeback project keeps quiet about being one of the sweetest, most affirming movies he's ever made.

July 25, 2017
Of course, there's a level of tactical sophistication to this kind of fantasy-crime scenario, but Blunt's screenplay scores many points by making the follow-through of the plan so damned pleasurable.
July 24, 2017
Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky is a high-spirited, low-down blast.
July 24, 2017
This is a good-times film that doesn't put on airs, dress to impress or pretend to be something it isn't. It just aims to please and does a pretty good job of it.
July 24, 2017
Soderbergh returns from retirement with a silly heist movie that packs real soul.
