    Amazing cast, beautifully choreographed, lots of fun, but yet the plot (especially in the final act) turns into a bit of a mess.

    Definitely a cut above the vast majority of action/heist movies due to it's inventiveness, playfulness, and superb direction, but I couldn't help feel a little underwhelmed at the end after the movie descends into a series of seemingly mindless explosions and shootouts.

    Edgar Wright's long-awaited Baby Driver is a marvel of sound design, using its diagetic soundtrack and sound effects to create the visuals' syntax, with Wright bringing his attention to detail and sense of comic timing to what is this time technically an action drama. The story follows the character of Baby, a precision driver with tinnitus who must listen to music to drown out the noise and has been roped into a rash of burglaries that, as might be expected, go terribly wrong just as he's trying to pull himself out. It occurred to me that while Hollywood movies are credited for inventing, or at least over-using, the car chase, few of them are ever at once interesting and look real (as opposed to both Fast and Furious). It takes Hong Kong directors or Europeans to really hit some high notes with that type of action, it seems. All that to say the car chases in Baby Driver are INSANELY good. And while the plot, though not without its surprises, is simple and even familiar, its interesting characters and technical mastery hardly give you enough time to notice. 4 years 6 months ago
