Highly Suspect Reviews: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is the kind of guy who appears to be a little obsessive with the geeky stuff. He made Shaun of the Dead to channel his zombie/horror fixation. Hot Fuzz for cop thrillers, The World’s End for alien invasion movies, and Scott Pilgrim for…well, maybe video games, but honestly I think he was just blown away by the comic book like all of the rest of us. But, not to put too fine a point on it, he’s a geek and his intricate and layered comedies are his versions of building a giant model from Star Trek or something. Now, enter his latest, Baby Driver: a fast-paced (for the first and last act) action musical (of sorts) with Ansel Elgort as the titular “Baby” who works as a getaway driver, and one helluva good one, for crime boss Kevin Spacey. Wright, as it turns out, has a real fixation for some of the classic ‘driver’ movies of the 70s and so, here ya go.

Also featuring Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Lily James, Jon Hamm, and Eliza Gonzales, Baby Driver is a car stunt-heavy, absolutely music packed and choreographed, action comedy….that we all at least liked. Yeah, some of us merely ‘liked’ it. Check out the review with Chris, Jon, Harris, Beau and Richard to find out why.
