Baby Driver Movie Online Review: Boy Racer Hits All the Right Notes

After wisely walking away from the car-crashed Ant man before it even being made, Edgar Wright is back with his most thrillingly cinematic romp. Wright’s Baby Driver movie online is a romantic musical disguised as a car-chase thriller, the movie is a perfect combination between the over-cranked action fantasies of Hot Fuzz with the pop-tastic sensibilities of Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Baby Driver movie online is around Baby (Ansel Elgort) – the best getaway driver in town. Our driver went through a harsh childhood with his parents being dead in a car accident. The accident leaves Baby with “hum-in-the-drum” of tinnitus that he has to listen to music using earphones to drown out. On the bright sides, the music he listens to beats up his actions. Whether he’s burning rubber or fixing a peanut butter sandwich, this driver spins do it with the same infectious exuberance.

Accidentally indebted to Doc (Kevin Spacey) – a wisest mob in town, Baby is always “one more job” away from his freedom. His jobs always come along with wild card, Buddy and Darling (Jon Hamm and Eiza González) – a latter-day Bonnie and Clyde with matching his and hers tattoos – and Bats (Jamie Foxx) – a loose cannon who claims the monopoly on “mental problems” – are on top of the deck.  Even Baby is working to pay his debt, Doc still gives him enough paycheck to take care of his foster father Joseph (CJ Jones). This old guy listens to music with his fingertips, and from him that Baby has learned signing and lip-reading.

Baby Driver movie online is the project the Wright had been nurtured since 2003. Indeed, the movie opens with an explicit nod to its small-screen dry run, with Elgort lip-synching to Bellbottoms by the Jon Spencer’s Blues Explosion while his cohorts rob a bank. Later, he halts a job until he’s correctly cued up the frantic bass riff opening of the Damned’s Neat Neat Neat, and searches for Golden Earring’s Radar Love before flooring a jacked ’86 purple Chevy Caprice. As for that “one killer track”, it’s Queen that Wright brilliantly turns to Brighton Rock to provide battling guitar accompaniment to a multistory showdown of head-banging elegance.

It’s not just the action sequences that strike a chord. The toe-tapping opening titles find Baby doing an on-foot coffee run to the beats of Bob & Earl’s Harlem Shuffle, lyrics magically appearing on walls and signs in a scene as seamless as the opening freeway dance from La La Land. The songs serve as an on-the-nose Greek chorus, telling us that Baby has “nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide” as he’s trapped in an arms deal. Then, it’s when the horns and drums of the Button Down Brass’s Tequila become gunfire, or the madness of Hocus Pocus by Focus drives a breathless chase, that Wright really puts his foot down, with exhilarating results.

Wright has directed the movie with the confidence of someone who can afford to pay fanboy homage to his antecedents, whether casting Paul Williams as the Butcher in a nod to Smokey and the Bandit or getting Kevin Spacey to bark “Don’t feed me any more lines from Monsters Inc… it pisses me off!”

Baby Driver movie online can only show its unique with a top-flight stunt co-ordination team (Darrin Prescott, Robert Nagle, Jeremy Fry) working together in perfect harmony with a hip choreographer (Ryan Heffington). In addition, cinematographer Bill Pope greatly uses the Atlanta locations with the same affection that John Landis brought to Chicago in The Blues Brothers. If you want a soporific night out, go see Hampstead. For something with a little more torque, it’s Baby Driver movie online you’re looking for.
