That was an excellent one.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
Channing Tatum, despite growing up in the South, has a terrible, unbelievable southern accent. It's like he's channeling the 1840's on a plantation somewhere. Adam Driver has a better southern accent despite growing up in California. There's a kid. Nothing to do with the plot whatsoever. There's no connection between the actors, no love or bonding there. This film is 95% dialogue and the other 5% I missed because I fell asleep. I get they were going for some indie-themed existentialism here but it fell flatter than a pancake. Adam Driver and Katie Holmes were the only highlight in this pitiful excuse for a film.
Omg this was a great movie. Easily one off the best heist movies ever made. Acting was great, story was great,movie was great. Grab an adult beverage and some skittles and kick back for a fun ride... you won't be sorry...
Just not entertaining at all. Expected something watchable from Daniel Craig, and Driver etc. Just straight up booooooring!
The scenes felt heavy handed and went on too long in trying to make sure that everyone watching would understand what the scene was trying to say. Than was the biggest disadvantage. But at first I had expected that the working-class characters would fall into their designated stereotypes and we'd chug along to an easily-expected finish. Not so much. Actually, the characters were nicely filled out, there were stereotypes but not the ones I expected. Except Daniel, his character was filled with stereotypes. And who the hell did his hair cut? He looks like he is over 60.In general, it's a zany comedy about unremarkable characters punching well above their weight but through sheer luck managing to pull things off. In the last act that the film starts to feel a little played out. The introduction of Hillary Swank as a Special Agent in the last 20 minutes of the film feels a little rushed and ultimately doesn't really go anywhere. Instead, the story continues through a number of false endings, not entirely sure when to bring down the curtain. Overall, as the first feature to draw Soderbergh out of semi-retirement, Logan Lucky is clearly something he wanted to make and his passion comes through in the final product. Produced entirely on his own and without studio interference, Logan Lucky inverts the glamour and opulence of the Ocean's trilogy, but with losing the series' trademark quirks and high entertainment value.
