Movie: Baby Driver
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx. Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jon Bernthal
Baby Driver is a movie that comes with a surprise, with a no promotions- no pre-release talk of the town.
And leaves you with a ‘Wow, I would love to see this in IMAX’, after randomly going to watch it after seeing its 8.4 IMDB score.
Released on the 21st of June, Baby Driver is a film about crime directed by Edgar Wright (Ant-Man, Hot Fuzz) with Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey wow-ing us with their unbeatable talent. Are you game already?
The 5 reasons you should definitely run to the theatre to give this one a watch are:
The movie is based on how Ansel Elgort (Baby) is this badass driver who never fails a heist. He drives on beat to his Ipod gifted by his mother, who died in a car crash. He had his earphones on the day of the crash, thus, he has his earphones on for most of the movie duration to wipe out all the noise maybe.
How I would love to steal his iPod for its perfect playlists.
You will be finding yourself tap dancing and bobbing your head as soon as the movie starts. It’s a hip musical getaway and the music for each scene is literally ‘made for the action’.
You would not believe it but the first few minutes of the movie where Baby (Ansel Elgort) is walking around and buying his coffee is done in one single shot! The camera just follows Baby while he crosses the street does his moves and reaches the coffee shop.
Some crazy filmography for the entire 2 hours of your watch.
Kevin Spacey, take a bow! For you are the epitome of ‘Being an actor’. As for Ansel Elgort, he made sure he kept the balance by sinking into the character which will make us call him Baby more than Augustus. Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm and Lily James mastered in lending that cool and hip feel to every molecule of the film.
With a badass driver as the protagonist, the action has got to be superb. The thrill of the heists gets to you and the random gory murders remind you of Tarantino.
Thanks to the director Edgar Wright, you won’t bat an eyelid throughout the film- not literally of course. The pace and the timing of every move are so sensory on all five levels that I doubt anyone can yawn even once. The beginning is hip and rises to such great levels of cool that you just don’t feel like leaving your seat even for some popcorn.
Now, how about booking your evening to the theatre and watching the sensory masterpiece that is Baby Driver.
Oh, and how about a trailer to make sure you go give this one a watch.
