Two redneck brothers from West Virginia, both with disabilities, one with a limp from a football injury, and the other missing an arm after serving in Iraq, decide to stick it to the system by pulling off the heist of the century at a Nascar race.
Logan Lucky is one of the most clever comedies to come along in recent years. It also makes a good drama. Although the characters are a little over the top with their country redneck accents, they feel as real as your neighbors. Even the ending manages to touch your heart in a very sweet way. This is a very smart comedy about dumb characters, who might not be so dumb after all.
Daniel Craig, former James Bond, is very convincing as a redneck bomb expert, and so are Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as the two brothers.
Rating: * * * *
Logan Lucky is destined to become a classic. It is rated PG-13 for crude language.
