I expected to be mediocre
But it turn out to be quite bad. It is one of the few movies I could not watch to the end.
Oceans 7-11 is a fun good time!
This movie surprised me. It is funnier than I expected. Channing Tatum and Adam Driver is the amazing duo of brothers I never knew I needed.

"Logan Lucky" (2017) is comical crime drama where two brothers attempt to pull off a racecar heist that effectively takes all the glitter and glam out of big movie crime films and turns it into a literal "could this really happen" type of film. The film is about Jimmy Logan, played by Channing Tatum, who after being fired from his job finds out his daughter's mother Bobbie Jo, played by Katie Holmes, who has full custody, plans to move away from their small town with her husband Moody, played by David Denman. Jimmy enlists his siblings Clyde, played by Adam Driver, Mellie, played by Riley Keough, and incarcerated bank robber Joe Bang, played by Daniel Craig, to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during a NASCAR Race. The film is chalked full of celebrities including comical genius Seth MacFarlane, but the comedic aspect was a miss for me. However, the missed comedy cues did not take away from the elaborate build up of the crime of the century.
I think the story of this film may have looked better on paper than in film. The trailer appears to have taken all the moments that where "side splitting" funny and spoiled the comical aspects of the film. The robbery and reveal however is classic Steven Soderbergh and I loved it. The acting in this film seemed above average for some and plain odd for others, particularly at the end. I really appreciated the director, Steven Soderbergh, not overly playing to the race itself because I would have been lost interest as I am not a fan of NASCAR, but the quality of the shots he did show made me a little more attentive. This film is some how high class, yet down to earth visually. I think this film is worth viewing even if its missing the comical aspect.
