Baby Driver

Posted on July 3, 2017


Baby Driver – For unspecified reasons, Baby “B A B Y” (Ansel Elgort) is forced to drive the getaway car for a crime boss known as Doc (Kevin Spacey) whenever he sends a gang to rob a bank. With earbuds always in to cover his tinnitus, Baby rocks out while the gang grabs the money then he drives like you’ve never seen anyone drive and it’s all fun and games until the killing starts.

Baby meets Debora (Lily James), a cute little waitress who shares his love of music. He wants out so they can drive off in a cool car, leaving it all behind. Not so fast, though. There’s one last score. Buddy (Jon Hamm), Darling (Eliza Gonzalez) and Bats (Jamie Foxx) want Baby to get his hands dirty like theirs.

Lots of laughs, violence, language – everything you need in a fun, summertime movie.  Again, the driving is truly exceptional.  Nobody corners like Baby.

And I’m thinking Ansel Elgort is going to be commanding a lot more money for his next movie.
