Baby Driver movie hits all the right notes. Yes, that’s a music pun because there is just so much good music in Baby Driver. The main character of this film is a boy called “Baby” played by the ridiculously talented Ansel Elgort. A car accident in his childhood killed his parents and left him with tinnitus that he now constantly wears earphones to drown out. Baby is one the coolest characters I have ever seen. He drives cars like he was born to do it, dances like he could be on Broadway and can also charm the pants off anyone he meets. He lives his life to his music, carefully planning robberies to take place to songs and taking turns and twists to the notes.So, the things is, I love this movie so so much that this is obviously biased. But you can’t even be mad at me because chances are you’ll love it too.

Writer and director Edgar Wright has clearly done a fantastic job and brought the film as close to perfection as possible. The opening scene of the film is a bank robbery where Baby is designated driver. He’s listening to “Bellbottoms”. There’s a high-speed car chase that makes you grip the edge of your seat and coupled with that crazy song leaves you breathless. It also doesn’t hurt that Elgort is superbly good looking and the fancy car is gorgeous.

Baby got caught stealing cars when he was younger by his now boss. He owes his boss and thus repays him by helping him and his crew steal money. He also takes care of deaf foster father Joseph and makes remixes of conversations he records. The remixes are straight fire by the way and I guarantee that it will make you wanna groove.

Things turn a bit smushy when Baby meets a young waitress names Debora (Lily James) and the two bond over their love of music. The going gets tough when Baby is stuck in the world of crime and Debora is an innocent disaster waiting to happen. Will they make it? Watch Baby Driver to find out!

There is definitely a lot of foul language thrown around but that’s what give the movie personality and character. Although that does mean you probably shouldn’t watch it with young children and all the violence also doesn’t help that case. It’s very stylish but slightly eccentric. Character can die horrific deaths with a bit of gore involved but if you’re over 17 I don’t think you’ll be phased.
