Storyline

Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It's a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Deborah, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc's plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby's skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music?

Trivia

Five 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX was used in the film had varying modifications to the car. Some of them were a stock WRX STI that had its spoiler swapped for a conservative WRX versions and another featured modifications with over 320 horsepower, a heavier clutch, and differentials from an STI.

One of the cars was an automatic with seat and controls fitted to the roof to enable the crew to film the actors "driving," without them having to worry about actually controlling the car. Another, a WRX with a modest power boost up to the high 200-horsepower range and converted to rear-wheel drive was considered by its stunt driver, Jeremy Fry, as his favorite to drive.

By the time filming wrapped up, three of them survived. See more »

Goofs

During the robbery with the rubber Austin Powers masks, one bandit can be seen biting one end of the mouth opening of his mask during a walking shot, apparently to hold the mask in place well enough that he can see where he's going through the eye holes. See more »

Don't believe the Hype
5 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I may have been more generous with the rating I chose, however due to the overwhelming number of highly positive reviews, I feel that some brutal honesty is required here.

The main themes in most of the reviews I've stumbled across are that this movie has a refreshingly original story and that the car chase scenes were exceptional. Neither circumstance holds true. The story was as cut and dry as any in this genre and the car chase scenes were bland, boring, and made no sense to me. Compared to a movie like Drive, where the protagonist's backstory actually lends to his driving skills (stunt car driver, motorsports participant), in Baby Driver, we're supposed to believe that some kid somehow acquired exceptional getaway driver abilities because of...tinnitus? There is no connection here, not to me anyway. And as for the chase scenes, utterly boring and unoriginal. The cars were completely lame too. Taking Drive as a point of contention again, the cars in Drive even have some degree of backstory to make the seemingly unbelievable chase scenes more believable...upgraded chassis, suspension, and souped up engines. In Baby Driver, we're given nothing more than showroom stock grocery getters...not even the top end models of the cars were chosen to take on the challenges. It was just all around stupid to me and I was left disappointed.

OK so the soundtrack was good. But this is not Forrest Gump where a compelling, original story is amplified by a perfectly curated soundtrack. Instead, it's a collection of good music used in campy fashion. If what you're after is the soundtrack, get a Spotify account. Dollar for dollar you'll get a lot more out of it, I promise.
