Movie Reviews: The Hitman's Bodyguard, Wind River, Logan Lucky

Brigsby Bear, Step


Buddy action comedy, the return of Steven Soderbergh and a crowd-pleasing documentary make for another diverse weekend in Utah movie theaters.

As attempts to recreate the chemistry of Midnight Run go, you could do worse than the dueling F-bomb fusillade of Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds (pictured) in The Hitman's Bodyguard. Confusing messages about the appeal of nostalgia and pop-culture kitsch hamper the clever premise of Brigsby Bear. The story of a dance squad at a Baltimore charter school in Step becomes the Platonic form for a crowd-pleasing documentary.

David Riedel praises the sense of consequence and the atmospheric whodunnit of Wind River.

In this week's feature review, Steven Soderbergh returns to the big screen showing no signs of rust in the caper thriller Logan Lucky.
