This is a movie that satisfies the critic in me and that person who sometimes just wants to zone out and have a good time. Impeccably and cleverly directed as always by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is a movie that’ll give you the thrills of a summer blockbuster without sacrificing craft or character. The ensemble cast helps bring the script to stunning life, making you believe this world, and the different antagonists and obstacles standing in the way of our relatable-yet-flawed main character transcends the usual “hero-villain” ho-hum. And if by some strange stretch of the imagination it doesn’t entertain you, at least the soundtrack will keep you satisfied.
