Lo­gan Lucky

(★★★✩✩)

STEVEN Soder­bergh is back in form (af­ter his short-lived re­tire­ment) with this fun ca­per star­ring an all-round ex­cel­lent cast in­clud­ing Chan­ning Ta­tum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig.

The film has so many set-ups that you lose count of what’s hap­pen­ing on screen some­times, but that is half the fun. Even when it seems like the plot is plod­ding, just keep watch­ing be­cause there are pay-offs in al­most ev­ery scene.

Ta­tum and Driver play the un­lucky Lo­gan brothers – one has a limp and the other has lost his arm in an ac­ci­dent.

Th­ese sib­lings, with the help of their sassy sis­ter (Ri­ley Keough), de­cide to pull a heist dur­ing a Nascar race. For that to hap­pen they get the help of a guy who is in­car­cer­ated (a hi­lar­i­ous Craig).

Soder­bergh knows how to jug­gle a lot of char­ac­ters and plots (he’s done it with the Ocean’s Eleven films), and Lo­gan Lucky ben­e­fits from that skill. Un­der his di­rec­tion too, Ta­tum and Driver truly shine. – MB
