While "Logan Lucky" is 3/4ths of a very good movie, the final half-hour becomes narratively unfocused as it strives to tie up some loose ends.
Has an exuberance for life without seeming to fall prey to every Hollywood cliché in the book.
The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.
The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.
Weird without being off-putting and offers a different kind of experience than most films.
The lack of a clear direction and vision leads to something haphazard, sloppy, and not remotely viscerally compelling.
Not so much a bad movie as a superficial, uninspired, and forgettable one.

"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
