Guillermo del Toro is a huge fan of Edgar Wright's Baby Driver

Point Break Best Crime Heist Movies

It finally became a tangible possibility in 2009, with Wright planning it to be his next movie post-Scott Pilgrim, but then The World's End and active Ant-Man development got in the way. But sometimes a movie is great because it takes an average concept and does it in a fresh, exciting way.

Named for a Simon and Garfunkel song, which is one of about 40 pop songs of the past that dot its soundtrack, Baby Driver has a hell of a hook: Ansel Elgort plays a getaway driver for a gang of robbers, and due to tinnitus in his ears, he must listen to music through earbuds at all times. What could have been easily forgotten parts are instead quite memorable thanks to pros like Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, and Jamie Foxx. Wright times the action to the best of the music as a trademark in his films, and this one is no exception. This movie includes the best vehicle chase I have ever seen, no kidding.

Baby Driver is almost a flawless film and one that everyone, not just Edgar Wright fans should be racing out to see. That music makes the movie feel special. Wright also likes happily ever after in black and white imagery, but don't expect anything mushy. He's graceful, even dancing through the streets at one point.

Desperate to escape this life, he hoards his cut under floorboards and plans a future where he can look after his adopted father and the cute waitress he's been flirting with (Lily James). He carries the movie, although he does have help from a pretty dynamic trio of baddies. They add some spice to the mix.

The virtue signaling is as flamboyant as the production numbers in "Baby Driver", in which every scene is a set piece of extravagant staging and skintight editing. And, boy, does it have some action scenes!

Guillermo del Toro is a huge fan of Edgar Wright's Baby Driver

Director Edgar Wright's Baby Driver just added $3.6M to its strong $2.1M start from Tuesday previews, toppling Transformers: The Last Knight for the #1 spot on Wednesday. Baby's love interest Debora, played by Lily James, is incredibly endearing and has great on-screen chemistry with Elgort, himself often overshadowed by the excellent characters playing against him. It tells a good story, even if that story isn't particularly new. You'll found yourself tapping your foot along to the soundtrack several times throughout this film.

Similarly, the version of "Tequila" that carries one of the picture's longest action sequences isn't The Champs 1958 hit but a less twangy version by Button Down Brass.

Peter Bradsshaw (The Guardian): "It's such a amusing and engaging film, packed with sheer brio and good nature, showcased most entertainingly in Baby's amble down the street to get coffee for his comrades, and then his amble back, showing all the resulting streetscape vignettes in reverse ..."

"The closest I came to it was that somebody sitting near me on a flight was watching it". This romp does it all, and it's both a joy and a thrill to watch.
