For this unhip viewer, who preferred a stodgy Emily Dickinson biopic to this totally awesome genre flick, the whole thing veers from bad to unforgivable in the romantic subplot involving the beautiful waitress (Lily James) who may or may not have an inner life but nevertheless falls head over heels for the in-every-way-uninteresting Baby, and who stands by her man despite hell, high water, or years of imprisonment.

It’s finally most apt that Wright’s final image returns to fantasy realised as a reunited Baby and Debora drive off in a roadster, pop cinema and pop music returning back to the roots on some dusty southern back road. It might not prove the best film of the year, and yet Baby Driver left me with the feeling that it might well be the only one they’ll be teaching in film schools in twenty years.

While it might be too simplistic to say that Wright generates the technical pyrotechnics and Pegg supplies the soul, the flaws of Baby Driver hint that this equation roughly adds up… Its greatest liability is its screenplay: the filmmaker’s first-ever fully solo effort in this area. Baby Driver is so poorly written on levels of plot, characterization and (especially) dialogue that Wright’s typically first-rate craftsmanship fails to save it—and, in context, even becomes its own source of annoyance.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Baby Driver

    Why did I go to a car chase movie? Because it was family movie night and we just wanted to go the theater with a balcony. Was the film good? Umm..sure, whatever.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Baby Driver

    It could have been a teen version of DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE, it could have been the chance of an exceptional soundtrack, unfortunately it stays at BESSON level, the only one that plays well is the red SUBARU == C'aurait pu être une version ado de DRIVE, c'aurait pu être l'occasion d'une exceptionnelle bande son, malheureusement ça reste entre TAXI & le TRANSPORTEUR, la seule qui joue bien, c'est la SUBARU rouge. 2,5

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Baby Driver

    1/4 Grand Theft Auto, 1/4 Need for Speed, 1/4 Drive and 1/4 True Romance. Unquestionably asinine - as you'd expect from any Hollywood action movie - Baby Driver sets a new standard for an iPod commercial.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film Baby Driver

    Edgar Wright is like his character Baby : he's like really really good at one thing (editing cool transitions between shots) but almost incapable at the rest. Here the script is dull, the characters boring or cliche, and this high-tempo thing a waste. In England, there was some humor left in his cinema. Now everything is pretentious and empty. I had no fun whatsoever watching this almost 2 hours nonsense.

  • Ana Sousa's rating of the film Baby Driver

    The best editing I've seen in a while, deserving of all the awards. Loved the writing and Spacey's casual poet self shooting pearls like "He put the Asian in home invasion" and "I knew a guy who had a machine that could turn blank ones into green". Also, I want Foxx's red sweatshirt. The man has such an underrated and underused talent. If you're a true lover of music & driving, then this is for you.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Baby Driver

    I've always loved Wright for being the most delirious formalist in comedy today, but if it's not too paradoxical of me, I thought that Baby Driver has his best shots and is his least good film. There's an interesting movie in here about drowning out the world with media, and I like that it adds geekery to the outlaw myth. But it's undeveloped, going in loops when it should be moving forward with singular purpose.

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Baby Driver

    This film was building so well until around 1hr in where it threw all logic out the window and proceeded to get more and more ridiculous, asking for huge leaps of faith, turning up the shmaltz and then devolving into adrenalin fuelled eye candy. The music is excellent, the editing superb, the bad guys are terrible and it has no heart. 2.5 stars

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film Baby Driver

    Your enjoyment toward BABY DRIVER will rely heavily towards whether you enjoy the tracks being served by Edgar Wright (and with this, the film is qualified to be categorized as musicals), as for me, listening to the Original Soundtracks few months back once, without even listening to it again, says it all. This could be a great heist/comedy film, but it's not. It's a musical, with only few songs that I liked.
