After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
Action Crime Musical - This is a violent, music soundtrack-driven action film aimed at
younger adults, particularly
males. The most familiar names in the cast such as Jamie Foxx, Kevin
Spacey, and Jon Hamm have supporting roles, with the lead being Ansel
Elgort. Constant language and violence make the film not for kids.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good It's neither bloated nor overwrought and its combination of good pacing and a willingness to tell a story remind us of what summer movies once were. Take Baby Driver for a spin around the block – you're unlikely to regret it.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good ...wildly joyous and fantastically entertaining "Baby Driver.” It's as much fun as you're going to have in a movie theater this year. "Baby Driver” will be one of your favorite songs of the year. Listen to it with a crowd. And loud.
NY PostFull Review Excellent Sure, this is fundamentally a summer trifle, a heist movie with extra style — but it's also the first time I've ever laughed with sheer delight during a getaway chase. Tune into the frequency of "Baby Driver,” and it'll reverberate with you for days.
Rolling StoneFull Review Very Good Baby Driver has it all: thrills, laughs, sex, nonstop action, a killer soundtrack, a star-making performance from Ansel Elgort and a director – Edgar Wright – who can knock the wind out of you. When was the last time to got pumped by a car chase? This revved-up ride of a movie is loaded with them, and they're spectacular.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 45 moviegoers:
TEENS: Four males loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one rated it "average," (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The lone female loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: All the males and three of the four females loved "Baby Driver."
ADULTS: This is apparently a movie enjoyed most by younger moviegoers. The adult reviews are good, but not great. Nearly 40% of the males loved it with another 20% indicating it was a movie they enjoyed very much. The remaining 40% rated it just "average." The female reviews are slightly lower. Only 25% loved it with another 25% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie that they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, a full 50% only rated it "average," with nearly 15% of those rating it low to very low.
