In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
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, Debora, 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? Written by

Jamie Fox turned down the role of Emile in a dinner theatre production of Schindler's List, to be in Baby Driver See more »
Just before dropping Baby off, Doc turns right on a red light without stopping, and while the crosswalk signal is displaying a "walk" sign. Although one could argue that he is a criminal and is comfortable breaking the law, a criminal mastermind who plans heists knows how not to get caught and would never break two traffic laws in full view of the public (and risk being pulled over).

Sometimes all I want is to head West on 20 in a car I can't afford, with a plan I don't have, just me, my music, and the road.

Everything about the film is pretty much pitch perfect if you ask me. Lets start with the cars. I have not been a fan of Fast and Furious films, but the chase scenes in this film run circles around that series if a certain reality of the moves matters to you. This is more in line with Bullit,French Connection, and the Italian Job films as far as great chases.
The music, fun, simply fun. Songs from every decade of my lifetime.
Action best pure adrenaline action in years. You will be truly on the edge of your seat during much of the film.
Humor, what can I say, love Edgar Wright's humor and this is his best.
And oh what a cast! Loved every one of the leads performances. I think Ansel was a standout, but come on Jamie Foxx, Spacey, Hamm and the beautiful Lily James. And the other leading lady, Eiza Gonzalez, was unknown to me, but she was great with one terrific diner speech in particular. I was lucky enough to see this at an early screening in Denver. I will be seeing this in the theaters once again when it opens, and I very rarely watch movies more than once.
Sometimes when I see a review fawning over a film like this, I think troll. Best way to check that out is see how many films the reviewer has reviewed and rated. I have over 4,000 rated films here. Not a lot of tens either.Best film so far this year.
