BABY DRIVER (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Baby Driver (2017), Ansel Elgort.png

Baby Driver, an Edgar Wright written / directed action movie about a young getaway driver, one who is forced to take part in a heist that’s doomed to fail isn’t a bad film. I just didn’t love it.

The film’s style is fun, the music is loud and fun, especially if you like the songs. The whole production stylistically is quite the achievement and it’s adequately entertaining. Nevertheless though, for me personally, I found it quite forgettable. This is partly because I’m not quite the key target market. I feel that there was room for the story to work better. For example, without spoiling anything, my biggest issue with Baby Driver is the main ‘change of heart’ at the end. I just didn’t buy it for the character involved.

What I liked most about Wright’s movie is the moment (s) when Elgort’s character starts to run. After all, I have always been quite partial to a good running sequence.

Baby Driver, watch it if you’re so curious.

Happy Film Loving
