    Steven Soderbergh is back with Logan Lucky, a good ol' heist movie, but it feels more like Out of Sight (and thus, Elmore Leonard) than Ocean's Eleven, though that's in its DNA too. Filled to the brim with great actors playing dumb and perhaps not so dumb criminals, the shadow of an old family curse looms over the leads and dares their plans to turn into a fiasco. Far from the glitz of the Ocean's films, the plot has the film's "rednecks" try to rob from a NASCAR race track. Though the movie seems to drag its feet at times, I think it can be forgiven for setting the characters up as real people you might want to care about. Mostly, it's fun and funny, Soderbergh never shy about stopping the action to showcase amusing banter without forcing the car off the track, so to speak. A well-plotted heist picture with memorable characters and an unique location. 2 months 3 weeks ago

    Lacking all of Ocean's class and wit, Logan Lucky does start out with a strong script where much is subtext. While the existence of subtext is interesting, the actual content of that subtext is dull, and the subtext is dropped by the third scene. Nonetheless, the script does occasionally surprise but the film largely ends up being a series of pleasant comedic and heist beats mixed with a Southern accent.

    It is definitely not bad, it's just entirely forgettable.

    Minor Soderbergh for sure, but enjoyable and endearing nonetheless. I appreciated it as a low-stakes take on the Ocean's Eleven formula, from obviously a different perspective. Soderbergh is so confident with shooting and editing, this can't help but feel casually accomplished in a way that puts it that few steps above similar fare. Missteps for sure - the intercom gag in the prison felt like a different film - but good to have Soderbergh back on the big making the sort of effortlessly slick capers he's uniquely capable of 2 days 6 hours ago
