Logan Lucky – Review
One of the slickest films of the year. Logan Lucky manages to draw in an audience and stun them in the most delightful way.
Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and Daniel Craig star in Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky. Creating a cool, calm and somewhat outstanding heist flick that will have you talking for hours after.
Plot: West Virginia family man Jimmy Logan teams up with his one-armed brother Clyde and sister Mellie to steal money from the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. Jimmy also recruits demolition expert Joe Bang to help them break into the track’s underground system. Complications arise when a mix-up forces the crew to pull off the heist during a popular NASCAR race while also trying to dodge a relentless FBI agent.
This film is a definite must see for any fans of film in general. Written by newcomer ‘Rebecca Blunt’ (who is rumoured to be fictitious going under the pseudonym) the film is suave, funny, just an ever so intriguing as it manages to mash together a plot that is so refreshing you will leave the theatre completely quenched. The writing is so good, that it leaves you to wonder who exactly this Blunt is. Regardless of the fact, it is simply stunning.
Craig, Tatum and Driver all pull together such a charm that it will have you almost convinced of their southern slack-jawed wit. Riley Keough adds to the flavour along with other stars Katie Holmes and Farrah Mackenzie. Wrapping up a tight cast that keeps the movie flowing.
If you are looking for that popcorn flick that will still get the brain ticking, this film is for you. It ticks all the boxes, whilst becoming a complete sleeper in what should be named amongst some of the best pictures of the year. Watch this space, because Soderbergh has delivered something special.
