Logan Lucky Review: AWESOME

Emma Coons, Journalist/Editor

Logan Lucky has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, is this accurate? For sure.
In the movie, Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) teams up with his one-armed brother, Clyde (Adam Driver), and sister Mellie, with the help of inmate Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Complications arise when instead of their original plan, they have to perform this heist during the Coca-Cola 600, one of the biggest NASCAR races of the year at NASCAR’s home of Charlotte Motor Speedway.
As you may be able to tell, I loved this movie. I went in with high expectations, and I was blown away. I felt at home with the movie as a southerner, growing up watching NASCAR; however, someone who does not understand the allure of the “sport” would still highly appreciate and enjoy this movie.
Not only was it witty, it was incredibly smart. Some jokes were obvious, and some were properly hidden. It was a successful heist movie in that it managed to keep me on my toes and curious as to how it would end until the VERY end. I had questions as to what would happen next the entire movie, yet all my questions were answered by the end in the perfect way. The camera angles were unique and inventive, unlike anything I had ever seen especially in a heist comedy. Sometimes comedies lose sight of cinematography, but this movie played with color and position elegantly. I can’t wait to watch again and catch every detail I could’ve missed in that whirlwind of a movie.
