Plays out like blasting your coolest friend's record collection in your car at 100 mph on the Atlanta freeway while cops close in on all sides - essentially what happens in the movie again and again, to always-riveting effect.

Like all Edgar Wright movies, "Baby Driver" is a blast, featuring wall-to-wall music and a surfeit of inspired ideas. But it's also something of a mess...

Baby Driver is sweet fantasy, unlike more violent and existential vehicular visions such as Drive or Bullitt. That means its two-bit thieves and criminal masterminds (Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey) are enjoyably cartoonish.

A film that was trying way too hard to be cool. And as everybody knows, there's nothing less cool than that.

One long shredding guitar solo of a film.

This film is masterfully put together and is a joy to watch. We really get to feel for and with the characters, smiling when they smile and (not really but) crying when they cry. The action is admirable though not over the top and the more talkative moments never bore. The fact that the scenes match the music is also clever and fun.

You already know the premise so let's cut to the chase: does Baby Driver pull off its intended goal of being an "action musical" that's both a homage to '70s-style heist-and-chase flicks AND another Edgar Wright pop-bubblegum comedy? I'd say yes. But only just. Wright is a natural director but, as with Scott Pilgrim before it, Baby Driver's script don't...

Right from the opening sequence and killer soundtrack I was strapped in for this fun ride! Story arc was good, character development on point (Jamie Foxx was a bit of a scene stealer for me, and I ain't his biggest fan) and I left very entertained and satisfied. Special shout out to Ed for including Brighton Rock, (Queen) and Know How,(Young MC) what a...

Through our earbud-obsessed getaway driver protagonist Baby (Ansel Elgort), we are quickly introduced to the illegal schemes of head man Doc (Kevin Spacey) and his misfit master con team Bats (Jamie Foxx) and Buddy (John Hamm). What unfolds is a series of thrilling car chase scenes that leave a lump in your throat and provide edge of your seat anxiety,...

Ansel Elgort plays the young getaway driver in Edgar Wright’s full-bore blast of a movie. With every scene choreographed to a different track (as was Scorsese’s Goodfellas), it’s a throwback to the 1970s macho action days of Steve McQueen driving mad in Bullit, or Ryan O’Neal with his pedal to the metal in The Driver. Like those 70s genre flicks, the very...
