After the Kingsman's headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, an allied spy organisation in the United States is discovered. These two elite secret organisations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (a.k.a. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg Cable.
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

In a recent interview with THR (The Hollywood Reporter), Edgar Wright explains why Baby (Ansel Elgort) doesn't use smartphones for his music and calls. It's because modern day technology like smartphones can be tracked, so by using burners and iPods, Baby can stay off the grid. 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).

Your tattoo says 'hat'?
Yeah, it used to say 'hate'. But to increase my chances of employment I had the E removed.
How's that working out for you?

Perfect blend of action, comedy, and a great soundtrack!
The film stars Ansel Elgort as the titular character in deep with some undesirables from the criminal underworld. To pay them back, he must use his driving skills to help with a number of heists. During all this, he becomes smitten with a waitress (Lily James) who makes him feel like he's more than just a criminal. He then decides to try and escape his life of crime, but he soon realizes that it's much easier said than done.
I must say, Edgar Wright did a fantastic job with this film. All the music fit so well in their respective scenes, combined with the great acting all around to make one of the most entertaining films I've seen in a long time.
Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, and Eiza González did their parts well and portrayed convincing mentally unstable killers. This is the first time Wright has worked with this much star power, specifically American star power. The actors played well off of each other, especially in scenes involving comedy where they nailed the punchlines.
The music was good, not all of it recognizable by the average viewer, but effective nonetheless. Supposedly Edgar Wright based the whole movie idea around the Baby Driver song by Simon & Garfunkel, which is an accomplishment all on it's own.
Baby Driver was paced well, was never boring, and made me want sit back down in my seat and watch it over again.
I wanted to keep this review kind of short, but I did want to give you enough information to hopefully convince you to go out and see this film if you get the chance.
My suggestion: Do yourself a favor, go enjoy a night out at the movies and go see Baby Driver!
Seen at a advance screening in Roseville, Minnesota.
