This action film stars up and coming actor Ansel Elgort as Baby. Baby was in a car accident as a child that killed his parents and left him with tinnitus. To combat the constant ringing, he listens to music all the time on his iPod.
After getting caught attempting to steal a car belonging to crime leader, Doc (Kevin Spacey), Baby is forced to be the driver for his crew of robbers. Baby is fine with this role until he meets Debora, played by Lily James. Debora is a waitress and the two hit it off. Baby tries to quit but Doc won’t let him.
This is my favorite movie so far this year. Director, Edgar Wright, did a fantastic job and deserves a nomination for best director. Kevin Spacey and the other cast which includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, and Eiza Gonzalez were all outstanding in their roles. The relationship between Baby and Debora was fabulously played out by Ansel Elgort and Lily James. This was not only a great action film but also a love story. I’m not sure any movie still to come this year will top Baby Driver.
I gave it 4 out of 4 stars.
