Gear Up for 'Baby Driver' With Edgar Wright

Baby Driver writer and director Edgar Wright shares easter eggs from the movie and his favorite heists.

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, 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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

A few 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX was used in the film with 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. See more »

All those lines of dialog ending in "baby" ...
14 July 2017 | by paraduxSee all my reviews

... give me flashbacks to DIRTY DANCING.

1. You can't force "clever." Something is either clever or it is not. This film is ambitious but not clever. If you want clever, done right, watch Lucky Number Sleven.

2. The romantic arc is weird, too convenient, not well developed and there is no chemistry.

3. To borrow a line from Kevin Spacey's dialog, you want the good news? The good news is that the romantic arc is not an issue because this film a much bigger issue. No audience connection. By the 60 minute minute I did not care about Baby, or his instant girlfriend, or Spacey, of anyone. OK, I actually did care about the little kid who played the nephew. He should have starred.

4. For those who care about dramatic structure, Fox's character is so top-heavy that he should be counter-point. But to who? Baby is so lightweight for most the movie that he cannot be counterpoint to Fox and Spacey at the same time.

Over-rated to a scary degree. No wonder no two people can agree on anything anymore.
