Steven Soderbergh was once churning out several movies a year. (Magic Mike, Haywire, Contagion)Then, he decided to step back from the world of movies and just take a break. He worked on some television stuff, but has now decided to scratch that itch and make his way back to the big screen.
And boy are we in for a treat.
Logan Lucky looks like a trashier version of one of his Oceans films, starring Adam Driver and Channing Tatum as a pair of idiot brothers trying to steal a big stash of cash, with the help of a gleefully over-the-top Daniel Craig.
Man, this one is looking like Soderbergh struck comedic gold, in Coen Bros. fashion. I’m not trying to make direct comparisons, but it’s kind of hard not to when Soderbergh’s film is full of sleazy, yet entertaining leads that you absolutely want to watch, just to see how they get away with it…..or how they don’t.
