Movie Reviews:

  • dgood826: This was the most fun I’ve had watching a movie in a long time. It has everything I’m looking for in a summer blockbuster: nonstop action, amazing soundtrack (best soundtrack of the year), and hilariously funny. Oh and it’s an Edgar Wright film which has never been a let down. I’ve never seen the star, Ansel Elgort, in anything before but I know he was in the running to play Han Solo and now I’m extremely sad he didn’t make the cut – he even dresses like Solo for most of the film. Read more of my review here: https://imdgflicks.wordpress.com/2017/06/30/baby-driver-is-the-best-music-video-since-tron-legacy/
  • Gimly: Let it never be said that “Overrated” equates to “Bad”.

    _Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._

  • Reno: **Don’t mess with this Baby!**

    One of the stylish film of the year. There’s nothing special about the story, but the way it was made looks intriguing. The individual characters, music, stunts, obviously car chases. Not the best role Ansel Elgort has ever played, but in his short, beginning of the career, it quite possibly defines he’s ready for the tough roles. Then the British filmmaker known for some wonderful action-comedies, one more addition to his hit kit.

    A youngster who is a getaway car driver for heists, working under a criminal mastermind, is often teamed with a different crew. One of his latest job takes an unexpected twist, leaving his yet to bloom romance with a waitress in peril. His attempt to come out of that, the risk he takes, changes his life forever. The tale ends with an action packed finale.

    This is the first Kevin Spacey film I’m seeing after all the allegation against him. I blame everyone equally who had let him do it all these years. But that’s nothing to do with this film. He was fine as an actor as always. It’s just fine to be as one-off film, but the way everything had happened looked like it could have been a great franchise. As of latest news, it is on. The sad part is, all the good characters won’t return. Anyway, it is one of the must see from the year T17.

    _8/10_

  • highhorse: Extremely stylish, anime inspired superb action film. Edgar Wright knows what he’s doing.
  • David: Baby (Elgort) is a quiet, unassuming young man, who looks after his ailing foster parent, listens to music both out of his love for it, and a need to block out the tinnitus ringing in his ears that he was afflicted with due to a tragic accident that also took his parents. Baby also has a specific skill set, one that has him doing the bidding of a crime boss Doc (Spacey) to pay back a debt.

    Baby’s skill is driving, but not just any driving, the kind of skilled driving that gets Doc’s crew of armed bandits away from the scene of bank hold-ups very fast, and then leads crews of police cars on a merry dance, and dodges every trick up their sleeves with a few of his own set to a killer music soundtrack from his iPod.

    With light at the end of the tunnel, Baby has a chance encounter with cute diner waitress Debora (James), where the chemistry between the two is instant. He sees this as his road to freedom, and a bright new future. This new future is brought to rude halt by Doc who was not yet done with Baby.

    This film is all about the music soundtrack, and what a soundtrack indeed. With songs like Nowhere to Run by Martha and the Vandellas, to the quintessential driving song Radar Love by Golden Earring, you’ll be tapping your toes as well as being thrilled by the action, plus the classy, and slick driving by Baby.

    The performances in this film are all stand out, relative new comers Elgort, James, and González do really well in their respective roles. The scene stealing performances by Spacey, Hamm, and Foxx are great in support to Elgort. While Spacey, as he generally does, plays cool, and mellow. Hamm, and Foxx do it with charm, and evil menace as Buddy, and Bats. Jon Bernthal’s cameo as the suspicious, and hot-headed Griff was also a delight to watch.

    Written, and directed by cult favourite Edgar Wright, this film has all the elements that make this a great addition to the tradition of other heist films like Drive, The Getaway, and Heat.

    Baby Driver is probably the most fun I had at the cinemas this year along with Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man Homecoming.

  • John Chard: The moment you catch feelings is the moment you catch a bullet.

    Baby Driver is written and directed by Edgar Wright. It stars Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, Flea, Lily James and Eiza González. Music is by Steven Price and cinematography by Bill Pope.

    In debt to a crime boss, a young getaway driver with tinnitus finds himself taking part in a heist that could spell doom for all involved.

    Lets get it out the way, I’m a big fan of Edgar Wright, I find him refreshing for still shooting on film. That he has beautiful camera actions and for the fact his cutting is smooth and not a incomprehensible video game mess like so many other action movie directors these days. So obviously I love Baby Driver for sure.

    The choreography is high quality, the stunt work equally so, while the varied soundtrack (given to us via Baby’s personal player) is one of the best in many a year. Cast are bang on form, where naturally they are given a zinger of script to work from (it pays to watch more than once to catch some lines again). While the thrill of the extended action scenes are joyous.

    It was a film long in gestation for Wright, and you can see he has given it his undivided attention. He may be divisive as per his output, but the monster success of Baby Driver (both critically and commercially) speaks volumes about the quality of the work on show. One of the best films of 2017. 8.5/10

  • katch22: Lots of slick driving and action, but slim on plot, and very unrealistic ending.
    No explanation of HOW he becomes an expert driver.
