Baby Driver

  • The main story line is heavily cliched, but the dialog is not.
  • The pacing is pretty slow, but then again, I have a TERRIBLE attention span.
  • Felt a little long, with a long-winded ending.
  • It’s great to see REAL cars (not computer graphic cars) doing REAL driving stunts. It’s too bad the quick editing diminishes the impact of the chase sequences. Seriously, how can we appreciate the stunt driving if we can’t see the actual STUNT DRIVING on the screen? The quick-quick-quick cuts work fantastically for the non-chase scenes though, as they’re edited to specific beats in whatever song is a part of that scene.
  • There’s a chase on foot that might be the greatest foot-chase EVER in the history of cinema.
  • Speaking of songs, the soundtrack to this is a lot of fun.
  • MAJOR props to actually casting a deaf actor for a deaf role.
  • Lily James is quite adorable.
  • Final Letter Grade: B.
