Drew Taylor The Playlist
This is a brilliantly constructed, whip-smart, and laugh-out-loud-funny romp from a filmmaker whose precision and craft is nearly unparalleled. It’s hard to think of a movie this year that has been as singularly delightful, one that, with each passing moment, reveals something charming or odd or real.

Nick Newman The Film Stage
Logan Lucky‘s spell is light, the magic casual.

Owen Gleiberman Variety
Logan Lucky is Soderbergh in mid-season form, and there should be a solid summer niche for a movie that’s this much ripsnorting fun.

Andrew Lowry Empire
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.

Jordan Hoffman The Guardian
It’s all wonderfully preposterous, but also endearing and gratifying.

E. Oliver Whitney ScreenCrush
Soderbergh did some impressive work during his break from the movies, but Logan Lucky proves his talents need to be showcased on the big screen, melding crime and suspense with comedy.

Matt Donato We Got This Covered
If your script is good enough to pull Steven Soderbergh from “retirement,” color me intrigued. Such is true of Logan Lucky. An Ocean’s 7-11 hootenanny with Southern charm and Coen sensibilities.

Tim Grierson Screen International
In a movie full of cons, the greatest may be how deceptively easy Soderbergh makes this whole enterprise seem.

Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter
Working with a script by first-time writer Rebecca Blunt, Soderbergh has made the sort of breezy, unpretentious, just-for-fun film that scarcely exists anymore, one almost anyone could enjoy.

David Ehrlich Indiewire
If Logan Lucky begs you not to take it seriously, that doesn’t mean it lacks real soul.
