Honestly just as well made as Wrights previous work. Just picture a heist/crime caper in the style of Edgar Wright then you've got this, because he has not lost his style at all. It's well acted, and I particularly liked Hamm. The story isn't too predictable and I thought it was a dream come true seeing everything and everyone in the movie moving to Baby's music. I'd recommend it.

What's surprising is not that so much effort can be expended for so little result, but that all that effort can still come off as being so very lazy. All Wright's problems are present: mechanical scripts and characters designed to please a crowd while presenting the thinnest veneer of something different so as to garner critical approval. Increasingly difficult to avoid the conclusion he's a climber who's desperate to be liked by everyone: in short, a fake and a conformist. Brody got it right.

The 1st 30 mins set up an amazing action movie but the rest fails to fulfill its promise on almost every level. Characters remain undeveloped, story loses focus, tone conflicts itself & action degenerates into bland mediocrity. The strong musical element turns into somewhat of a gimmick, the passive love-interest feels weird alongside the nihilistic crooks & the ecstatic finale I expected never came. It's good fun but I loved the initial concept too much to not lament its missed potential.

Largely appreciated for it's stylish presence and meticulous editing, integrating music and film into one. So, as a film-making exercise, there's a great deal of craft shown in this movie. But that does not a great movie make. I can't help but feel that Baby felt generic and boring, like Wright wrote in a couple quirks here and there to make him seem less one dimensional than he is. The truth is that every other character outshined Baby by leagues, especially Spacey, and that's a major problem.

You know when you're walking down the street listening to Midnight Train to Georgia on your headphones and the world, all on its own, seems to swing in step to Gladys' groove? That's this movie, almost all the time. It's a sound and visual editing tour de force - a two-hour dance number with cars and guns and practical effects. Importantly, when everything is grooving to perfection and the action starts, the tension feels legitimate, and deserved - a rarity.

Really very enjoyable, and it was great to see Wright step outside of his excellent "Cornetto trilogy" with such capability. The cast (which doesn't recycle any of the normal Wright stalwarts) is terrific, and it's clear that a huge amount of attention to detail went into this, in particular the interplay between the music and the editing. I'll nitpick and say I wasn't wholly captivated by the overall plot and the romance element, but this was fun, and well worth a look.

An out of this world romp spearheaded by the never-failing Edgar Wright, and headlined by perhaps the most talented cast I've seen in years. All of the characters are interesting, and their relationships believable. This, all meshing into an unpredictable story with great direction and editing, and a solid conclusion. A film fan's dream come true.

Baby Driver is to Death Proof what Zombieland was to Planet Terror. Tone it down, don't lose any of the fun, love the source inspirations and keep it moving. Ultimately, I think both surpassed their Grindhouse comparisons. The only Grindhouse comparison I've surpassed is I've been exploited slightly more online.

wright's always been a pandering, masturbatory motherfucker without pegg's human touch, and he reaches a career nadir with this bumbling collision of edgy, pseudo-QT subversion and laughably retrograde sentiment. everything is a pose, everything is strained, even the action deevolves into spatially murky chaos after the neat opening. i'm 30 this year and yeesh, i'm really starting to feel (& sound) like it, but until the fun police stop sleeping on PREMIUM RUSH they can suck it.

BD has this resonant idea that music is the only thing keeping a lingering, omnipresent artifact of trauma, physical & emotional, at a distance. It speaks to an ambivalence: pop culture as necessary salve & impediment to catharsis. In its concern for how we use pop culture, see echoes of Scott Pilgrim. But there pop culture provides access to Scott's headspace, reimagining his romantic rivals as a pantheon of supervillains. Here, it's mostly the backdrop to a set of admittedly cool action scenes

If you can make it through the first 30 minutes of watching some wanker lip-syncing to pop music, all you get is a tired, off-the-shelf heist movie with characters so empty you never give a shit what happens to any of them. The script is bland, action scenes poor, and the whole thing comes across not as cool, but cringeworthy. I had no idea about the hype around this film until after I'd seen it, and it baffles me. I thought this wannabe-Tarantino rubbish was done with by the late '90s.

On a pure entertainment level, Baby Driver had me hooked and along for the ride. (Rides?) I wanted a slick, not specifically deep crime heist betrayal one-last-score kinda thingy with a nice soundtrack. That's what I got, and I ain't complainin'. Every time guns were blasting to the beat, I smiled. Not even Spacey could ruin this, which was unexpected. "Wa- wa- was he slow?"

Kind of like an aptly-named crazy little brother of Refn's "Drive". "Baby Driver" is a masterclass in sound and editing, propelled by Elgort who clearly has fun with the role. My gripe with the film comes solely from its ridiculously over-conclusive ending. Its clear that Wright missed the mark with some of the writing, but the fun and charm that the movie carries makes it all forgiven by me.

Underneath all the (super-rad) driving and the all the (smoking-hot) babbys, Babby Driver is essentially a mixtape CD shoved by an aspiring artiste into the hands of unsuspecting passersby strolling down the Sunset Strip. Luckily this one didn't upload malware onto my PC, but reconfirmed the fact that my taste in music is shite and I should be ashamed of not spending more of my 20s in the murky recesses of Soho record shops.

The auteur theory gone awry. What Mark Kermode said about Tarantino being like that jacket-wearing uncle at a wedding showing off his record collection applies to Wright here -- there's a great degree of posing, showing off, and trying to be cool. When it's trying to be enjoyable and high-octane, it succeeds, though it's a really stupid and predictable kind of enjoyable. Hamm, Foxx, and Spacey do fairly well, though all the characters are lifelessly mashed together in the laziest fashion.

Edgar Wright's latest film after his "Ant-Man"(2015) departure is a brilliant action packed car-chase-musical/soundtrack movie. The fantastic editing between the visual action beats and the music creates a harmony that powers a thrilling momentum driving the movie forward through every twist and turn. Wright's style and direction combined with this fantastic cast of supporting characters take a familiar feeling story and turns it into a unique instant classic.

I don't get the hype. This movie severely lacks any kind of forward momentum, with many scenes portraying a "we're going to do this and that" kind of situation. Just do the thing already! Syncing action sequences to music sounds like a fun idea, but in practice it adds surprisingly little to the experience. Most crucially; the action scene set to Hocus Pocus is only marginally better than the one from the Robocop remake, which means I'm still waiting for a great scene to go with this great song.

I don't get it. it's a pretty lousy crime plot with some music over it. a massive disappointment coming from Edgar Wright, who is maybe the best editor working today. I thought the music would play a more significant plot but it's just Guardians of the Galaxy's character arc played by a guy with zero charm. Jamie Foxx's character is fucking dumb and hackneyed and they all kind of are. I'd probably give this an even lower score if I wasn't a coward

How could anyone argue that Edgar Wright isn't the most talented director today? He puts on a masterclass of editing, sound editing, camera work, and pacing. Often when directors put their stamp on a movie it feels so put on that it takes me out of the movie. With Wright I notice and am still absorbed in the world because of how natural it is. It makes Guardians of the Galaxy look like amateur hour with the use of music within a film.

Baby Driver is the movie equivalent of driving on the highway with your windows down, music blasting. It's about as tacky as a Denny's dinner entree but as exciting as receiving that first paycheck. More than anything else, it's a healthy reminder that movies can be fun. For those interested in music, this is essentially a musical, with every beat and step synced to the soundtrack.

I feel like I have something very similar to Edgar Wright where sometimes I'll hear a song and a perfect movie scene plays out in my head. I feel I'm also dis-similar in the sense that I don't have the talent, motivation, or connections to turn those ideas into something watchable. Also, Radar Love may be the best driving song ever and I'm really glad it was included on this soundtrack.

The only real significant flaw that I can point out with this is -- and it may come as a surprise with the glowing casting praise this is getting -- the miscasting (to me) of Foxx and Bernthal. I would have much preferred their roles be reversed. Hamm and Spacey both deliver. It's not Edgar Wright at his best or most stylish -- possibly attributed to this being his first mostly-US-made film -- but it's more than enough of what I expected to keep this at a really high level of enjoyment for me.

It's unfair that movies can be this flawlessly orchestrated, but it's also why we love the medium. Wright's elegant direction pumps the film's action scenes with well-earned adrenaline and the quieter moments brim with endearing character moments and humor. I honestly don't have much else I can squeeze into a mini-review other than to say my score for this may continue to rise on retrospection. One of the best of the year, no question.

This is definitely on the level of Wright's previous work. Baby Driver is one of the more unique movies I've ever seen. From a rather interesting backstory and unique character in Baby (Ansel Elgort) to amazing performances of Jamie Foxx, John Hamm, and Kevin Spacey, Baby Driver nearly does everything right, aside from a few pacing issues and first half I found more interesting than the second, this is a movie that everyone should see. This only helps certify Wright as one of the best today.

The first 45 minutes are great, but Wright mistakes his choreographed-driving-film for a semi-tragic romance and takes the plot away from the action. The middle of the film lacks momentum - the time is devoted to character, but a dead mother is an incredibly hackneyed backstory and more character is given to Jamie Foxx than the love interest; Debora is basically a well-acted prop. The climax too forgoes the musical-styling of the earlier action scenes and the films endings feel like an epilogue.

Original, inventive, Fun. HAD I seen it uninformed I would have come out raving 4 it. Sadly, Brits love 4 Edgar Wright & justified sympathy (Ant-Man debacle) -> maybe just a TAD over-hype + OTT goodwill for EW's passion project. So, I expected 1 of best films of my viewing life & it wasn't that Eg. I'd cut 5m of JH as T-800 & -> improve hugely pace, realism + remove tiny section of drag I felt @ that point. Otherwise, great! 5* film, superb just not quite Holy Grail hyped

Edgar Wright conquers Hollywood. The car chases were impressive, as were the choreography in the 'Harlem Shuffle' sequence. Though there are fewer jokes than we're used to from Wright, there are a few doozies for sure (the Austin Powers masks and the 'Monsters, Inc.' thing). I'm not sold on Ansel Elgort, but Lily James nails her part, and the rest of the supporting cast is really fun.

Undeniably well crafted and thoroughly enjoyable heist caper, but it also can't be denied that the movie has several character problems. Not just in the blank-sheet lead (or the colorful yet bizarrely inconsistent supporting roster) but also the film itself; for all its slick editing and groovy music, lacks personality. Surprising - considering the director.

Presumably the past 40+ years of music videos never occurred given all the love this is getting for Wright's decision to build an entire film around matching visuals to songs he really likes. While the ending does manage to surprise, it's hard not to notice early on that this is little more than a string of well-shot car chases strung together by paper-thin stock characters & dialogue that tries to ape Tarantino's criminal chit-chat, but fails to be anywhere near as amusing.

Very inventive with a terrific soundtrack where the score is matched to action beats. All the secondary characters give good perfomances but the standouts are Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm playing against type to great effect. Unfortunately the few times the film slows down and focuses on the main character Baby and love interest Deborah it almost stalls out. Thankfully the rest of the movie is exceptional.

This is the movie equivalent of nailing that perfect playlist for that girl you haven't told you like yet. Dissected, it's got paper thin characters and seemingly cartoonish caricatures, but as a whole, the joyful experience of bopping along in perfect harmony overwhelms the senses at times. It's sort of hipster and goofy, but a little bit gangster at the same time. Truly an experience.

Edgar Wright strikes back and he's on fire! "Baby Driver" is two relentless hours of action and music, music and action: phenomenal chases, great soundtrack, very good cast (Jamie Foxx steals the show) and, as always, perfect sound and editing. It does not avoid certain clichés, with the love story especially being a little too fairytale-y for its own good, but remains a thrilling ride, particularly notable for marrying jaw-dropping action and feel-good musical vibes in a rare, organic way.

There's a lot to admire here: a particular scene later on when shit hits the fan is amazing, the way the events move to the music is lovely, the soundtrack is pretty good, and Spacey is doing it real good as usual. But this didn't hit me real hard... there's a huge lull at one point, I think the acting is sold but not exceptional, I didn't laugh much, and stylistically this comes across as mostly more normal than previous Wright material. Still good but I'm underwhelmed.

Somewhat reminiscent of Pulp Fiction-era Tarantino in tone, it's a sharply edited movie with Wright's signature visual gimmicks and flourish, a great soundtrack, and a cast of larger-than-life characters butting heads with one another. Of course, it's not the most sophisticated movie you'll see this year, but it offers more substance than Scott Pilgrim (which I wasn't a fan of).

I wouldn't say that this movie is necessarily original in the obvious sense, lots of reused tropes.

Shockingly placid by Wright's standards, 'BD' is essentially nothing more than a few set pieces loosely connected by paper-thin narrative and characterization. Ironically, by taking a more self-serious route and losing much of Wright's former tongue-in-cheek sensibilities, the film ultimately feels as if it has far less heart, fun, and cinematic magic to it -- even though it works harder to imbue heart than anything Wright's yet done. Still fun with some smart editing, but underwhelming.

Not since The Guardians of the Galaxy have I seen a movie avoid a script by having its soundtrack do all its emotional heavy lifting. What's worse is that it is a basic Mo'Wax/Funk 45 Spotify playlist--from 15 years ago. Additionally the morals of the film are appalling as there're no repercussions to the violence and motivations of some characters. All that could be forgiven if the film didn't have a complete lack of joy and escapism. Avoid at all costs. My least favorite film of the year.

Terrible lead actor ruins the film. The writing is not good and the action editing is way too fast, likely to hide poor choreography and lack of budget. However the supporting cast is so good this film should have been awesome anyway. Bernthal, Foxx, Hamm and Spacey are all fantastic; too bad they have so little screen time compared to the abysmal, miscast lead. The soundtrack is mostly a loud, grating distraction as well, but with more carsploitation/chases the film could have worked.

Foxx is underrated as always, fantastic in this role. Kevin Spacey delivers his signature fast talking deadpan character which once again fits him remarkably well. The rest of the cast is excellent, with the exceptions of Baby and Debora. Their romance was forced, had no chemistry and comes out of nowhere. No emotional investment.

The only relationship that really resonated of the many that were meant to mean something in the film was between Baby and his foster father; the rest fell flat and, as they were meant to carry much of the plot, the plot also fell.

Edgar Wright has an OCD-like obsession with tying up loose ends. This is the source of the film's greatest strengths, but also what steers it into sentimentality at times. But all the characters are fresh and funny - especially Foxx and Don fucking Draper. Figures, it took a Brit to demonstrate the enigmatic presence of Hamm in cinematic form. And the chase scenes - top notch. The amount of cerebral sweat required by Wright cannot be understated. Not his best, but masterful nonetheless.

Baby Driver is such a fun film. That's its strength, and it plays to it greatly. It's relatively long for its premise, but it doesn't feel like it. It's stylish, action-packed, and filled with interesting characters, some of which subvert the expected tropes while others play to them, almost knowingly. It may not be thematically rich, and it won't give you a ton to think about, but not all movies need to. Baby Driver is so entertaining that it gets away without doing so.

Almost perfect chase- and heist-movie with brilliant direction and editing and a really good cast.

I had a friend describe Drive as "pop culture osmosis gone mad" and I think that fits here even more. Its clearly indebted to the 90s indie scene stylistically and tonally. I'd maybe compare this to Something Wild, but really it's just Drive made by the guy who directed Scott Pilgrim. Probably my favourite Wright film so far. It's one of his few films where his style doesn't feel annoying.

The car chase scenes were pretty awesome but the Romance sequences left a lot to be desired. Ansel Elgort was really the only questionable actor in a film that I'd say has pretty solid acting. The first half is definitely better than the second.

Script is embarrassingly bad and so is musical-ish stylization. Some car chases are really good but it's nowhere near enough to save this mess. I'm starting to wonder if Wright is actually a talentless hack who can't make even a half-decent movie if there's no Pegg and Frost to save his ass.

A slick, comic-book fantasy which is sure to be loved by today's younger demographic. As usual, Edgar Wright is both technically strong and inventive behind the camera, this time round ditching the video game overlays of Scott Pilgrim to focus on music and beats to define a new cinematic language. This language is underused - a shame since the other elements mainly rehash some tired Hollywood tropes. Good casting and visuals, but ultimately a disposable melée of cartoon characters and plotlines

Nice first 45 minutes but it loses momentum about halfway through with some crappy as hell storytelling and the action scenes losing the initial coolness of music-based action. Oh well.

Watch: Theater not required, but not one to miss. | You remember in Shaun of the Dead where Queen was playing on the jukebox and the whole scene was choreographed to it and it was fun and awesome? That's all of Baby Driver. Heist movie where every gunshot, footstep, alarm, and breath is synchronized to the soundtrack backed by strong characters and an expert eye behind the camera. One to watch more than once.

way, way overrated. it tries hard to be a "feel good" movie but the plot is skin deep, the execution favor the style over content way too much. the overuse is of soundtrack is cringeworthy. how they got to cast all these a-listers is beyond me. you could put them in a room and shoot their random banters, and it'd still be an interesting show. it wouldn't have car chases, but then again, fuck car chases.

Edgar Wright takes a step forward as a director and delivers a fantastic getaway SLASH musical. A film that I wanted to immediately go buy another ticket for when the credits started rolling.

Baby Driver is a thoroughly enjoyable cinematic experience and it will prove to be one of my favourite films of 2017. Edgar Wright is an extraordinary filmmaker and every single shot and cut is meticulously placed. The cinematography and editing is ridiculously impressive and the unusually varied soundtrack is perfect throughout. Ansel Elgort gives both a dramatic and physically well choreographed performance and Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx & Jon Hamm are the standouts of a fun supporting cast.

This was a really fun movie. I thought that the use of sound and music was top notch and really pulled me into the film from the opening sequence. The characters kept me engaged and wanting to see what ultimately would happen to them.

Funnier Drive. Great characters and performances make up for (deliberately, I assume) derivative genre plot.

Baby Driver is a well-constructed film that pairs an energetic soundtrack with exhilarating chase scenes. The dialogue is snappy, which aids in maintaining a pace that matches the driving. The acting is good, but all the characters lack depth and adhere too closely to stereotypes. The worst example of this is Spacey's final scene. Thrilling and fun, but the film lacks any deeper substance.

I found this to be tonally all over the place and the dialogue to be really hit and miss. Didn't buy the main actor either (a mix of Taron Egerton and Michael Cera). John Hamm was solid though. Overall a fun ride, with some nice chase scenes.

Uses music wonderfully and impressively. Great performances and interesting characters make the very unoriginal plot work extraordinarily well. Top notch stunt driving. Video review: https://youtu.be/EI5OOXmpspw

BD is like a beautifully decorated cake. A work of art, designed to impress; almost redefining the possibilities of combining a knockout soundtrack, great photography and some excellent action. The problem is when you actually cut into the cake its all a bit bland. Cal me old fashioned, but I go to the cinema for a great story, and hope it is augmented by sound, cinematography and editing, not to be "conned" by bells and whistles which hide how mundane and predictable the story actually was.

Every other movie that comes out in 2017 should start with a title card that reads "Sorry We're Not Baby Driver, Please Enjoy the Show"
