Logan Lucky may not be as glamourous as the Ocean’s trilogy, but it is equally slick

Steven Soderbergh makes a triumphant comeback with Logan Lucky, a heist comedy that sees the acclaimed director return to filmmaking after a four-year hiatus from big screen ventures. The movie, his first directorial effort since 2013, follows the adventure of three siblings who are attempting to pull off a daring, elaborate robbery.

Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum), a Southern, blue collar construction worker who once had a promising football career that was derailed by a knee injury, is fired from his job “for liability reasons involving insurance”.
