    LOGAN LUCKY REVIEW A

    Channing Tatum is Jimmy Logan, a has been football star from a small town in West Virginia, his ambitions of joining the NFL was cut short by a knee injury. He's separated and was just laid off. In fact, it seems that everyone in the Logan family is cursed. So, to change that, Jimmy teams up with his one handed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) who is really over the top with his accent, sister Mellie (Riley Keough) and professional criminal Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) this guy is hilarious, almost seems odd seeing him out side of 007 . The players are gathered together in an effort to steal all the money from Charlotte Motor Speedway during the annual Coca Cola 600 NASCAR race.

    That set-up would make "Logan Lucky" a heist film; a genre Soderbergh ("Ocean's trilogy") is certainly familiar with. But it also attempts to be mockery/comedy, playing off Southern stereotypes of beer-drinking rednecks and "Toddlers and Tiaras" pageants. Soderbergh's trademark directing style is on full display: tons of dialogue which reminds me somewhat of films by the Coen brothers this may be the most Coen- esque of Soderbergh's films, in its mishmash of giddy story-line flair and the amusement in regional and local idiosyncrasies.

    One interesting thing for racing fans: NASCAR participated fully with production. Scenes were shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the racing footage is real and drivers Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano all have cameos. Thankfully there is no overabundance of left turns here.

    This has been coined as a red-neck "Ocean's Eleven" and it's a very fun and entertaining film. As for the real actors, the star-studded cast isn't the brightest tools in the shed and there are quite a few mishaps. Sebastian Stan (Bucky in the Marvel Universe) plays a fictitious NASCAR driver, and Seth MacFarlane is a wreck as a wacky corporate sponsor. Then, just when you think the finish line is near, Oscar winner Hilary Swank cruises in as FBI agent looking to solve the case, unfortunately her character sticks out like a sore thumb she's very stale.

    One rather odd fact apparently the film's credited screenwriter, Rebecca Blunt, may not be an actual person. IMDb claims that either Soderbergh himself, his wife Jules Asner wrote the script. Emails were said to be going back and forth from cast members to an unknown discussing this.

    Rated PG-13 for language and some crude comments

    Female characters wear somewhat revealing outfits in some scenes. 1- F bomb and several sexual comments made 1 rather graphic one coming from a child. I GIVE IT AN A

    Brothers Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) and Clyde, who lost his left arm in the war in Afghanistan,(Adam Driver) figure a way to rob the NASACR Motor Speedway in Charlotte , NC during a big Cocoa Cola 600 Race. They realize they need help and get Clyde sent to jail to meet Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) who they need to help with the heist as he is an explosives expert.

    This is pretty good and the heist is quite complicated as you will see. Appears there were sink holes in the center of the speedway and a construction crew was handling the repairs. Jimmy was fired from his job there, but learned how the money was gathered during the race under the raceway. Quite clever.

    Notables: Katie Holmes as Bobbi Jo, the former wife of Jimmy; Seth MacFarlane as Max Chilbain an annoying British Drink Salesman; Riley Keough as Mellie, a hair dresser and who was the driver to get Joe Bang and Clyde to the race track to do the heist; Dwight Yoakam as Warden Burns; Hilary Swank as FBI Agent Sarah, who is in charge of the investigation to the race track robbery; and Farrah Mackenzie as Sadie, Jimmy's daughter.

    Quite enjoyable, but I had to do a double take when the robbery is discovered and we are told that the police found the money in garbage bags behind a gas station. What?

    Now here's the thing. We see FBI Sarah in the bar asking Clyde for a drink and she says it 's bad luck to drink alone. Then we see Clyde give her the drink and she has her right arm on the bar. And guess what? We see what looks like a prosthetic arm. This may not be over. See? Oh, oh! (7/10)

    Violence: Yes, a prison riot. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: No

    239: Logan Lucky. I'm not entirely sure about this movie. This is definitely going for the out there farcical nature that Soderbergh brought to The Informant!. Each character is a little goofy in nature. They represent a different Southern archetype down on their luck. It was a little funny in some spots. Most of them were featured in the trailers for this film. This is something that Steven Soderbergh could do in his sleep. It's a heist film where it seems like nothing can ever go right for this family. People look down on them and nothing seems to ever go right for our protagonist Channing Tatum. There is a hint of melancholy to these people. While the movie wants you to laugh at them, they are really getting one over on you. It is a bit of misdirection which is embedded in the DNA of a heist film. In the grand scheme of things, this movie is a fly by film. It's fine when you watch it. You can casually catch most of it and understand everything even if you're barely watching it. It's a heist movie and it follows that formula to a tee with little to no variations. It's fine. I give this movie a C.
