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?

Trivia

When Edgar Wright began writing the script, he only had ten songs to start with. The final film had thirty, according to the published playlist. The song Smokey Joe's La La was a very late replacement for the B. Bumble and the Stingers' Nut Rocker during post-production as after several test screenings Wright felt that "it started to get on his tits" that he re-shot part of that scene. Also, Easy by The Commodores was included after Ansel Elgort was cast as Wright found out during audition that it was one of the songs that Elgort knows very well and could sing / lip sync. That moment won him the title role. See more »

Goofs

Before accelerating away from the post office dock, Baby presses a button to deactivate the passenger side airbag. There is no such button in the Mitsubishi Galant; such switches are only used in two-seat vehicles, not sedans, and may only be used by inserting a vehicle key. See more »

Little more than a mix tape with dull characters and clichés attached to it
15 July 2017 | by HawkensianSee all my reviews

I read an early tweet that described Baby Driver as 'a mix-tape with a film attached to it' and that proved to be an accurate comment. The tweeter may have thought this was a good thing, but I certainly don't.

Yes, there are some good tracks and the action sequences are elaborate and frenetic (a little too frenetic, actually), but the characters are dull, unlikeable and bear very little relation to the real world. I simply did not believe in them, especially Darling, the sassy, kick ass stock character that only a fool would consider to be a strong female character.

Then there's Baby, whose laconic, boyish demeanour makes him a rather uninspiring protagonist. His romance with Debbie, a cute little waitress, is yawn-inducingly clichéd, too.

If you want a stylish heist film that isn't so bloody try-hard, then watch Drive. It's an exercise of style over substance much like this film, but it has suspense, atmosphere and characters that could actually exist rather than blaring music, mind-numbing action and flat, hateful comic book characters.
