Movie Review: Baby Driver
Baby / Miles played by Ansel Elgort is a get-away driver for a criminal mastermind boss named Doc. But he wants out. Pay back his debt to Doc, Kevin Spacey, and get on with his life.
However, things are not that simple.
This movie had a great premise and the first fifteen-ish minutes of the story had great driving and stunts, but then it petered out. I was hoping the second half of the movie would have more and better car chases and such but no.
There was also a lot of predictability in the movie and a few loose plot holes. Like who was the guy chasing them in the pickup truck and why was he after them? Was he an undercover cop or a rival?
Baby wakes up with his girlfriend/waitress driving and they just stop in front of a police barricade on the road. WTH?
No, I’d rather have seen him driving and getting away. Then he’s trapped. He has a choice to backup and try to outrun the police again, but then sees her and decides to give himself up.
The ending was melodramatic and boring. Not the racecar movie I was led to believe.
My rating 2.6 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
