People of color are picked off easily, like a retro horror film where the Black guy gets killed first.

As an action movie, "Baby Driver" is good, but as an action movie directed by Edgar Wright, it is disappointing.

For a film so full of automotive iconography, it's a conclusion that remains frustratingly in the middle of the road.

I walked into Baby Driver wanting, maybe even expecting, to see a film that -- like everything else Wright has made -- would be the stuff of a future cult. What I got was a film that was trying way too hard to be cool.

For the film, the ringing sound is an alarm: once the music stops, beware. The soul of Baby Driver dies with it.
June 28, 2017
The music helps distract viewers from the fact that they have no emotional investment in any of these characters or the story itself.

It may have been an excellent Hollywood entertainment film, but it ended up being slightly better than The Fast and The Furious. [Full review in Spanish]

A wonder during its first 30 minutes, but then doesn't know how to handle the arrival of new ingredients. [Full review in Spanish]

For the rest, on a dramatic level, Baby ... is a total failure: I could not have been less interested in the fate of the hero... [Full review in Spanish]

In a nutshell, there is not enough of a sense of vulnerability or struggle to Baby, meaning we don't really care that much what ultimately happens to him either way. This is a cardinal sin in the writing of any protagonist.

The car-chase movie reinvented? Maybe, but it just hasn't been reinvented enough.

Baby Driver is too much the soulless good boy doing bad things; what it lacks in substance it can't hope to make up for in style.
June 20, 2018
It is perhaps appropriate that the last time we will (hopefully) ever have to look at Kevin Spacey's smug face is in a film that is as equally proud of itself.
June 29, 2017
The disjointed plot of this fast and spurious jaunt frustrates at every corner taken in fifth gear.

A playlist does not a movie make.

After eating exhaust fumes for the best part of two hours, this moviegoer left feeling decidedly queasy.

Wright seems to be taking notes from Quentin Tarantino for his use of pop music to provide an aural bed of energy for the story to glide on. The problem is that Edgar Wright isn't anywhere near as gifted as Tarantino...

Don't believe the hype. This is one bad "'Driver."

July 4, 2017
Edgar Wright used to send up cinematic clichés with gusto and with huge humor. Here he just embraces them - and his sullen, unengaging hero - unironically.

For all its attempts at juxtaposing Baby's sweet dreams with the hard-core aspirations of the movie's band of miscreants, Baby Driver has no more staying power than an air kiss. The longer it goes on, the more fleeting its fleetness becomes.
