This movie was better than I anticipated.
Baby Driver is a great crime drama directed by Edgar Wright following a beyond expert getaway driver trying to settle down in life and leave the ways of crime behind him. I have no issue saying 50% of the reason I saw this movie was to listen to the soundtrack, this is a musically driven film, with the expert editing and direction of Edgar Wright. All the actors do great jobs, although mind you, only Baby and his girlfriend Debora are the nice characters, just about everyone else is a dick. But hey, this movie ends kinda the way you wanted it. Music selection (save for one song) I did not know but by God did I still enjoy it. The action is decent, the comedy is non-obtrusive, it's more a character driven film and not just a vroom vroom bang bang movie like the trailers have been leading you to believe. Actually, that's an interesting point. If you watch the first trailer then watch the others, it goes from drama and character to, CARS EXPLOSIONS GUNSSSSSS!!!!!! It's stupid. Guys, give this movie a shot. I highly, highly recommend it. Dig those groovy tunes, and tell me what you think.
