BABY DRIVER (2017): The Thing I Liked…

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.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Baby Driver (2017)

Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lilly James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is the new action / crime / thriller about a young getaway driver who has been coerced into taking part in a heist job that’s doomed to fail….

All that came to right away as I watched this trailer is ‘What a great role for Elgort to land‘.

I want to see this simply because it looks good. Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Flea and Sky Ferreira also star.
