A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Saw this during a film festival the other week and it was amazing! Edgar Wright never disappoints! He even made me like Ansel Elgort whom I despised before! :o
Totally recommend!

Parts of this were incredible, and other parts were mediocre. I left the theatre with mixed emotions.

I saw this on the weekend and I did enjoy it. Edgar Wright knows how to create cool male characters. Pacing was good, dialogue was entertaining.

His female characters though?! It stuck out for me just how under-developed both the major female characters were, essentially existing only to add some weight to their respective male characters' stories.

^Cute?? I guess you could say that the love story was cute?

A great action movie, but it was very violent.

True, one can say that about Jamie Foxx's character as well. Basically, I'd like more depth in Debora, because I felt the criminals, apart from the boss, were sort of meant to be one-dimensional, to show how distant Baby was from them.
Incredible pace and rhythm though, and the resonance between sound and image was amazing.
