Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a taciturn getaway driver for heist mastermind Doc (Kevin Spacey. He drives to his own iPod playlist, which blocks out the tinnitus sustained in a childhood accident.
Having squared a longtime debt with Doc, and with a potential new romantic interest in waitress Debora (Lily James), Baby wants out of the crime circuit. But Doc doesn’t want to lose his most valuable asset, and when the two worlds collide, well, nobody puts Baby in a corner… Edgar Wright has toyed with zombies, buddy cops, aliens and video games, but this particular Baby was born out of the British writer-director’s longtime desire to set a car chase to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s Bellbottoms.
The result is an obvious labour of love and easily Wright’s best film to date; a fast and furious action-thriller with a sweet romance at its heart and a soundtrack that just won’t quit. Propelled by its own rhythm, and with scenes and dialogue synced to the curated songs, Wright doesn’t miss a beat, and neither does his cast. A relentless remix of The Getaway and True Romance, Baby Driver is a cool ride from go to whoa.
