July 10, 2017
Put in your metaphorical earbuds, turn the key in the ignition, and enjoy the cinematic highlight of the summer so far.

Oozing menace as addicted bank robbers, Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm are all the more charismatic thanks to Bill Pope's luscious noir photography. Credit Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss for the razor-sharp editing.

Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is one of the most entertaining thrill rides of this year, this decade.

This is not a philosophy of criminology, or a new pathology of antisocial behavior, but it makes for a terrific night at the movies.
June 29, 2017
Wright's movie delivers action that's convincing and concrete - the cars seem real, even when the people don't.
June 28, 2017
Edgar Wright's start to finish sensation is blessed with killer car chases, a star-making turn from Ansel Elgort, the year's best soundtrack and the most fun you'll have at the movies all summer.

In Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, even the machine guns fire in time with the beat.

Edgar Wright's crackling crime caper rises to the top of this summer's most entertaining movies. It satisfies my need for speed, baby.

Summer can finally start now: Baby Driver is that blast of energy we've all been waiting for.

June 28, 2017
Baby Driver is sweet fantasy, unlike more violent and existential vehicular visions such as Drive or Bullitt. That means its two-bit thieves and criminal masterminds (Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey) are enjoyably cartoonish.

It's the kind of action-comedy that makes you want to see it again a second after it's over.

Having hooked us with style, Wright knows he has to deliver on the story, and he does. His plotting is tight and fluid, wild and ultimately satisfying.

"Baby Driver" somehow maintains a tone of sweetness even as bullets fly, blood spurts, and gears are stripped. In fact, the movie feels like Tarantino minus the sleaze.

Walk or take public transit to the theater, as the urge to drive recklessly on your way home will likely prove overwhelming.
June 27, 2017
It's an action musical. It's a crime tragicomedy. It's awesome.

Wright has a peerless skill in syncing up his images to the beats and rhythms of a diverse soundtrack, giving new life to tracks that have long seemed exhausted

As charming as Baby Driver strives to be, the appeal starts to curdle once Wright makes his fetishistic aims clear.

There's nothing like an epic getaway chase to kick a movie into high gear, and the first five minutes of Baby Driver are pure movie magic.
June 27, 2017
The band Spacemen 3 once titled an album "Taking Drugs to Make Music to Take Drugs To"... Edgar Wright, a major record-head, might appreciate this comparison: He makes movies out of ideas that are too crazy to make movies out of.

Baby Driver is wild, violent, often very funny and hugely inventive. Wright puts you right in the driver's seat with Baby for spectacular car escapades, but the characters and conversations he creates are just as gripping.

[Baby Driver] is very savvy about pop music and pop culture, and it has a number of thrilling car chase sequences. But those are side items, not main courses, and you can't put dessert before the meal. It winds up driving in circles.

This is movie craftsmanship and showmanship of a very high order.
June 27, 2017
Wright has orchestrated every swerve and near smashup -- and one glorious foot chase -- with precision, a rarity in action filmmaking these days.
June 27, 2017
As sharply executed as a hairpin turn, Baby Driver is a crackling-good ride, one that organically weaves music and humor into a slick showcase for its cast.
June 27, 2017
There's much to enjoy in "Baby Driver," including the satisfactions of genuine cinematic craft and technique, qualities that moviegoers can no longer take for granted.
June 27, 2017
It's been a week since I saw "Baby Driver," and I'm still pleasantly buzzed.

Everything in Baby Driver, from the rubber-on-road action scenes to the expositional conversations, is its own kind of set piece, engineered to hit pleasure centers with homing-missile accuracy.

Wright's idea is to grab you by the throat from the beginning and never let go. He is consistent and mostly successful in this aim.

With Wright in the driver's seat, your standard getaway driver story is transformed into a giddy, adrenaline-filled joyride that'll leave you gripping the edge of your seat and tapping your feet.

When all cylinders are pumping, Baby Driver is an enchanting experiment that puts the pedal to the metal. And even a few off notes can't stop the beat of Wright's fast and furious symphony.

It's cute, to be sure, but is it anything more than that? Maybe it doesn't have to be.

The regrettable truth is that Baby's a dull boy.
June 26, 2017
Just what you want a summer movie to be.

June 26, 2017
Wright is savvy enough to realize that suspense and tension require characters that are more than human figures in a CGI playground. He does just enough with the men and women populating Baby Driver for us to get a sense of who they are.

Feels both influenced by the modern era of self-aware, pop-culture filmmaking and charmingly old-fashioned at the same time, which is only one of its minor miracles.

This is the first thriller I've seen in a long time that feels handmade.

Equal parts slapstick and visceral thrills, but never too far from a reality check.

The movie exists in this dreamlike state of ecstasy for nearly 70 minutes. Then there's a peculiar pivot into conventionality.
March 12, 2017
Plays out like blasting your coolest friend's record collection in your car at 100 mph on the Atlanta freeway while cops close in on all sides - essentially what happens in the movie again and again, to always-riveting effect.
March 12, 2017
Like all Edgar Wright movies, "Baby Driver" is a blast, featuring wall-to-wall music and a surfeit of inspired ideas. But it's also something of a mess ...
March 12, 2017
A sweet and speed-crazed crime film you can dance to.
