The film centers around two brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina. Channing Tatum plays ‘Jimmy Logan,’ who just lost a mining job and wants to use his time off to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. To pull off the heist, they need to break an expert safe cracker, played by Daniel Craig, out of prison.
The film is a ballet in comedy. From the Southern accents to just sheer wide-eyed stupidity of the characters, this film is simply comedy gold, offering up some the wackiest and most hilarious moments you can spend in a movie theater. Thank you, Steven Soderbergh, for this terrific treat!
“Logan Lucky” deserves an A. It’s rated PG-13.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard
In the film an elite bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice.
If I were to describe “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” in a few words it would be that the “Jason Bourne” movies married “Deadpool” and had a baby!
The film is a non-stop reverse buddy picture with Jackson and Reynolds at each other’s throats, all the while trying to just stay alive. If your tastes run to an ‘anything goes popcorn muncher, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is it.
“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” gets a B and is rated R.
