Lucky Logan: Soderbergh’s Heist Film, Starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver

Soderbergh’s Lucky Logan is a decent variation of a familiar genre, a heist comedy, well acted by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver.

Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy (Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Driver) set out to pull off an elaborate heist during the Coca-Cola 600 auto race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Tatum plays West Virginia family divorced and unemployed Jimmy Logan, who leads his one-armed brother Clyde (Driver) and hairdresser sister Mellie (Riley Keough) in an elaborate scheme to rob North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway. To help them break into the track’s underground cash-handling system, Jimmy recruits demolition expert Joe Bang (Daniel Craig).

A scheduling mix-up forces the thieves to execute the job during the Coca-Cola 600, the track’s most popular NASCAR event of the year. As they attempt to pull off the ambitious robbery, the down-on-their-luck Logans face a final hurdle when a relentless FBI agent (Hilary Swank) begins investigation.

Filled with unexpected plot twists, offbeat characters, and deadpan humor, Logan Lucky marks Soderbergh’s honorable big-screen return.
