This movie was only creative and fresh on the surface. Underneath, the plot line is not very interesting and certainly not new. While undeniably slick and well-shot, I found that the characters lacked any sort of realistic dimension that would allow me to care much about the plot. Glad that I didn't waste money and watched it using boxxy software app.

This movie is honestly, and I don't say this lightly, the best movie that I have ever seen. Wright's use of symbolism and the extra layer of depth in every scene is astounding. Almost every seen in the movie is perfect working with the action and sound effects. Ansel Elgort does a wonderful job of portraying the main character, Baby. Each scene is perfect, and so many shots in this movie make you just want to say "Wow." The ending is also the perfect conclusion to the story, and gives just the right amount of flexibility, letting the viewer really decide what they think happened. 5/5

One of the well made popcorn movies. There are lots of exhilarate action moments with music that you want to watch and listen.

As far as plot and story go, this movie is pretty average, although the idea of a begrudgingly reluctant hearing-disabled getaway driver that works to repay a debt to a crime boss is unique to say the least. Where this movie really shines, however, is the visuals and editing.
The main character, Baby, has tinnitus and plays music to drown out the constant ringing in his ears. Instead of being a side-gag, Edgar takes this to a level never seen before - syncing the music to the world around him. Car doors opening and shutting to the beat, street poles whizzing by while quick drum fills engulf your ears, it's a layer of movie magic that I have not experienced before. In another, the sounds of gunshots perfectly line up with the music. The level of detail is riveting. It's captivating. It's unbelievably immersive. This movie is not all gas and guns all the way through.
One scene that is the antithesis to the gas-guzzling chases and gunfights is a single, continuous, full-body shot of Baby going to get coffee. In any other movie, some character would show up at a table with a tray of coffee in their hand. No second thoughts. Wright dives headfirst into this menial task by adding construction, street musicians, and car horns as well as graffiti that reads what the lyrics of the song are saying. This is no boring stroll down the sidewalk not worth showing. This is a beautiful exposť into Baby's personal life, the joy he feels outside of crime. A reveal of the good side of the getaway driver that is just stuck repaying an old debt.

A stylistic thrill ride. Baby Driver does well what a lot of movies don't do well in this genre. Edgar Wright's brilliant artistic style blends nicely with this musical thrill ride. This film raises the bar for action movies and the Fast and Furious franchise could take some notes on how a car chase scene is done right. Overall this film perfectly combines a great soundtrack and Edgar Wright's artistic style. 4/5

If you really like music and driving you will enjoy this movie. If you don't, go see something else.

Baby Driver is a boring film. It is about a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail. Ansel Elgot and John Hamm give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Edgar Wright did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

Edgar Wright, regista della Trilogia del Cornetto, che io ho amato, firma un altro film di altissimo livello; adrenalinico, con un ritmo costante e fantastico, girato alla grande e un cast a dir poco stellare. Ottima la scena iniziale della rapina, quello che ci vuole per presentarci un personaggio che nel corso della pellicola non potremo far altro che amare. Ansel Elgort infatti Ť stato bravissimo, interpretando un personaggio piuttosto particolare, che ascolta sempre la musica attraverso le sue amate cuffiette per coprire un handicap, l'acufene. Kevin Spacey Ť stato ovviamente spaziale e anche gli altri membri del cast se la sono cavata benissimo, trattandosi di attori del calibro di Jamie Foxx non poteva essere altrimenti. La colonna sonora essendo una delle colonne portanti del film Ť magnifica, composta da brani bellissimi e azzeccatissimi. Aspettavo di vederlo da oltre 1 anno, non essendoci riuscito per motivi sempre diversi, e le aspettative non sono state deluse, bellissimo.
