Critic Reviews for Logan Lucky

All Critics (228) | Top Critics (42)

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 ...

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.

Such is the merriment of the new movie, and so spirited is its pace, that you barely notice the wavering of the tone.

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 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Logan Lucky

A fun a smart movie that felt like it should of been better but on the other hand I had no expectations for it so I enjoyed it, It maybe classed as a comedy but it's very simple humour will not be enjoyed by everyone, All the cast were terrific and all had time to shine and it's really the main reason the film is as good as it is, The heist was fun and well done and had a twist at the end but it was pretty obvious if you have seen heist movies before, It won't be everyone's cup of tea but the simple and yet well thought out plot and a star studded cast are more than enough to enjoy this movie.

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.

If you've seen a Steven Soderbergh movie before, particularly the Ocean's trilogy, you'll notice many similarities between them and Logan Lucky. They're both about a group of colorful characters trying to pull off a multi-million dollar heist, all while avoiding capture. It's the cast and setting that make it stand on it's own, versus being Ocean's 14. Channing Tatum, as he did in the Jump Street movies, once again proves that he can make an audience laugh while standing shoulder to shoulder with high-caliber dramatic actors like Adam Driver, Hilary Swank, and Daniel Craig. Did I mention Daniel Craig? The latest Bond turns in what is by far his funniest performance, toting a heavy southern accent with a strangely random knack for science. Tatum, Driver, and Craig set out to rob the vault of the biggest Nascar event of the year, located in Concord, North Carolina. Like Soderbergh's Ocean movies, the majority of the film is an incredibly elaborate, step-by-step plan to execute a heist, coupled with sharp editing and a smart script. A particularly memorable scene involves the prisoners of Daniel Craig's jail starting a riot so that he can escape, perform the heist, and make it back before dinner. Their list of demands are simple; add a Game of Thrones shelf to their library. As a huge fan of Game of Thrones, watching them engage in back-and-forth banter with the warden (an all too proud Dwight Yoakam) about when the next books are going to be released was a major highlight, and had me rolling. Yet even with the wise-cracking characters and top-notch cinematography, a feeling of deja vu was still lurking in the back of my mind. Thankfully, it wasn't enough to distract me from concluding that Logan Lucky was mostly a genuinely funny and smart late-summer flick.
