Enjoyable comedy caper rip-off of Ocean's Eleven
9 September 2017 | by (Worcester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Steven Soderbergh is arguably the king of comedy capers, especially when it comes to the leading comedy-heist flick 'Ocean's 11', and once 'Logan Lucky' made an appearance, thus ending Soderbergh's "retirement", it was a flick I just had to see.

All-in-all, 'Logan Lucky' is an entertaining and well-executed comedy heist film with some brilliant characters and a smart conclusion... much like 'Ocean's Eleven'... in fact, too much like 'Ocean's Eleven'. For those who haven't yet seen the 2001 heist film, 'Logan Lucky' will be a more appealing watch due to its intriguing structure, creative character development and quirky tone to the crime genre, however those like myself who have seen Soderbergh's fantastic 'Ocean's Eleven' will just see this film as a near-enough rip- off of the project with no real unique take on it, apart from it being set in West Virginia / North Carolina with a blue collar family leading the caper, rather than a Las Vegas suave- fest. But despite it all, as I say above, this film is still an entertaining watch and gives us a break from the over-the-top summer blockbusters that are starting to become the bane of the cinematic industry.

Channing Tatum and Adam Driver both have a real chemistry as the fictional brothers in this flick, with the support of Daniel Craig's Joe Bang in the mix (with a rather entertaining accent in all fairness), likewise to Seth MacFarlane for his rather interesting English accent which he actually pulls off quite well. The characters are the strong point of this film, with interesting character arcs and smartly-executed development through flashbacks and narrations, always undertaken with a comedic twist.

I think one other slight drawback here was that there was no real villain or obstacle to overcome (the heist aside), there was never really much of a reason for them to hit the speedway other than earning a bit of cash, whereas in 'Ocean's Eleven', we had Andy Garcia, who was truly despicable and someone we were hoping would get ripped off... that level of hate wasn't really present with any character in this, but once again, this aside the characters were still interesting enough to keep the film running.

Finally, if you have seen 'Ocean's Eleven', then you have a pretty clear idea on how this is going to end, admittedly there is a small part in the end which caught me out a bit and left me clueless until the reveal, but it was pulled off in a similar manner to Soderbergh's "predecessor" (as of such). I have nothing against this film, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but obviously it's level of uniqueness failed when it came to story and structure, but the engaging characters and humour helped it stand as a great watch.
