Jimmy Logan is an unemployed construction worker with a bad knee and his brother Clyde is a bartender who lost his lower arm in Iraq. These two West Virginian brothers plan to change the family’s fortunes by robbing the Coca-Cola 600 race. There’s only one hitch, the explosives expert they need is currently serving time. Steven Soderbergh returns from his brief retirement to direct a working class version of Ocean’s Eleven, and it turns out to be one of the most purely enjoyable movies he has ever made. The script is snappy and the cast is terrific.
