It's not Ocean's 11, but a damn near close Deep South adaption
For this film, it's simply a case that you are going to hear enough references to Ocean's 11 when any reviews come up, and that is natural. The film even mentions it at one point to make it clear to avoid any counterclaims.
We have a blue-collar family who decide to pull in a convict & his brothers to help complete the robbery of a lifetime at a local giant speedway circuit.
The film is mostly for laughs, and thankfully without any glam. Sadly it does lapse into clichés on blue collar white folk which is unnecessary, but actually this film sympathises with them, and you begin to really empathise with the characters. Adam Driver as one of the lead two brothers is really excellent in his role, and is the one you root for most in his but Channing Tatum also plays his part well without resorting to anything typecast.
Ably supported by a good cast, and a story line that doesn't need to go at breakneck speed with big scores or rock soundtracks, this is a fine eulogy to the south.
I enjoyed it, the only problem is some of the lack of originality and the at times blue collar clichés which are cheap. It's a fine film otherwise, and you'll enjoy it.
