Baby Driver

Action Crime Music


 

A young getaway driver seeks a way out of his crime filled life once things start to go pear shaped.

"Baby Driver" is a bank heist film with an indie flare and a killer soundtrack. For a getaway driver our main character is incredibly naive, but his innocence gives the narrative a sense of morality that is hard to ignore. Well placed music provides a welcome distraction from a repetitive middle section that's in dire need of a jump start. Thankfully, a host of superb performances, top notch car sequences and a cute love story help to take the wheel when things start to drift. Baby on board.
