    ★★★

    Extra points for being a 'Cloverfield LN.' type sequel to 'Oceans 11'...... I love that meta shit. There's a fun, watchable cast and Soderbergh makes it all look pretty but 'Logan Lucky' takes itself just serious enough as a heist film to keep it from being a classic comedy.

    ★★★½

    When your ego is so large that you decide you want to be a mobster but aren't Italian but also a cop because you're always a cop. A laughably bad Steven Seagal wise guy accent turns into the perfect vehicle for balls-out badassery......somehow.
