Logan Lucky is a story about two brothers and their motley crew who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.
The film takes a slow pace and there are no big car race scenes. It’s more about getting to know the colourful characters. The Logan family members – Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde (Adam Driver) are cursed with bad luck and they are trying to turn around their fortune.
The robbery is incredibly elaborate. But Jimmy has just spent the last few months fixing the sinkholes underneath the Speedway so he knows where the cash is stored. To complicated matters, their criminal friend Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) is stuck behind bars in jail.
The film was directed by Steven Soderbergh so there are echoes of his other movies like Ocean’s trilogy.
The film support cast includes Katherine Waterston, Hilary Swank, Katie Holmes and Seth MacFarlane.
Logan Lucky is an unlikely winning heist film where you’ll be cheering for the underdogs.
