Baby Driver is the story about getaway car driver named Baby (played by Ansel Elgort) who wants to get out of robbing banks. But he has to pay for the money he owes Doc (Kevin Spacey). You can categorize it as an action/dark comedy movie.
As for the cast, their respective character suits them all. Ansel Elgort combines his charms with the wit and theatrics similar to Charlie Chaplin. Kevin Spacey still appears authoritative and a fearsome character. Jamie Foxx, John Hamm, and Eiza Gonzales combines the mixed between comical and violent characters of bank robbers that you never seen before. Lily James provides the love interest aspect for Baby which is darkly different from her Cinderella character.
It is different kind of car stunts which is simpler than Fast & Furious because there is only one getaway car that does all the stunts for every heist. Baby’s private music tracks are not just soundtracks but really part of the story which makes it fun.
The month of August surely opened with a good movie starting with Baby Driver. This is probably the ideal movie adaptation of the video game Grand Theft Auto. For more movie reviews, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
