Logan Lucky

Out Now On-Demand

See how the other half steals.

Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough and Daniel Craig star in this NASCAR heist comedy from Oscar-winning director Steven Soderberg (Traffic).

Siblings Jimmy (Tatum), Clyde (Driver), and Mellie Logan (Keough) plan a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway just before the biggest race of the year, the Coca-Cola 600. But first they must break their vault-opener, John Bang (Craig), out of prison.

Steven Soderbergh’s return to the director’s chair is an entertaining heist movie, in which he replaces the cool casino cracking charm of his Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13 leads with a bunch of rough-edged, blue-collar workers robbing a speedway.

Despite dragging here and there, it’s a fun ride watching Channing Tatum as Jimmy Logan, a dad with a busted leg trying to do right by his young daughter, alongside Adam Driver as his brother Clyde, a war veteran sporting a false arm. The perpetually unlucky Logans assemble a team of misfits, including a blonde Daniel Craig as incarcerated safe-cracker Joe Bang. Craig conducting an impromptu chemistry lesson mid-robbery is amusing, but it’s a prison riot with convicts arguing with warden Dwight Yoakam over the Game of Thrones books vs. TV series that scored a belly-laugh from me.

There’s a great supporting cast, with Sebastian Stan, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Katie Holmes, and Seth McFarlane almost unrecognisable as an arrogant, curly-haired Brit. But whilst the quirky character quota is high, none (not even a guy in the woods dressed as a bear) achieve the levels of hilarity of say, the Coen’s Big Lebowski.

Amusing and big-hearted, Soderbergh delivers an entertaining tale of honour among thieves. The moral is - never underestimate the underdogs, no matter how rough and ready they seem with all their good ol’ boy, beer-chugging, John Denver-humming, beauty pageant- and NASCAR-lovin'. Yee-ha and pass the spit-bucket, Logan Lucky ain’t deep, but it sure is fun.

Hollywood Reporter


This is a good-times film that doesn't put on airs, dress to impress or pretend to be something it isn't. It just aims to please and does a pretty good job of it.

Empire (UK)


Even if it needed one last push to make it truly exceptional, there's a lot to enjoy here. And Soderbergh once again attracts a cast it's a pleasure to spend time with.

The Guardian (UK)


Channing Tatum, working with Soderbergh for the fourth time, is at his sympathetic and charismatic best in Logan Lucky.

Variety (USA)


Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky is a high-spirited, low-down blast.

Total Film (UK)


Soderbergh executes his cine-comeback with élan, aided by winning A-team work from Tatum, Driver and Craig.

Vanity Fair


Logan Lucky is easygoing entertainment that, on occasion, gently brushes up against its stiffer real-world framing. I'm not sure the film is as successful in doing that as Magic Mike is, but it still makes for an intriguingly toned film.



While even the film itself cites the heist as "Ocean's 7-11", it's got a flavour and energy all its own. It's a blast from start to finish.

FilmInk (Australia)


For a fast and funny crime flick, Logan Lucky has plenty of grunt under the hood.
