Logan Lucky Reviews
Logan Lucky Movie Review: Steven Soderbergh, the master of heist cinema, strikes again with a delightful comedy about people who may look like idiots and yet concoct a brilliant plan.
Daniel Craig-starrer Sets the Pace for a Fun & Explosive Ride...
Daddy might be a brave attempt and Ahluwalia should be credited for the unconventional storytelling, but in totality, the film feels like a wasted opportunity.
The far-fetched but equitable resolution will likely warm the cockles of genre geeks’ hearts.
It's unpredictable, with some unforeseen twists and turns but with its heart intact. While the last act feels a bit drawn out, especially with the rushed introduction of a particular character, the majority of the film plays out smoothly and there's hardly a lull in the quirky humor and suspense. Even if it doesn't raise the stakes of the genre, there's enough potential to turn this funny and smartly written caper into another entertaining Soderbergh franchise.
This one is not a great film but definitely an enjoyable one!
This isn’t a very thought provoking film like other Soderbergh works, but it’s probably his most entertaining one to date.
With a gentler pace, less swag and more humane characters than the Ocean’s franchise, Lucky Logan comes with a twist, plenty of spirit and is gratifying in its own way.
Overall, sans the thrilling factor, this hard boiled heist comedy, is unconvincing and difficult to digest.
Logan Lucky is not as thrilling as Ocean's Eleven, but it is an original variation of a typical genre. It probably won't blow you away, but it will not disappoint you either.
...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.
