“Baby Driver”, directed by Edgar Wright

Movie, 2017

What starts off as a an orgy of car chases and music doesn’t really develop into much more. But still, Baby Driver is a treat. If the first section and immediate submersion into action is a little tiring, and the love story and set pieces short of originality, there’s an undeniable force and energy in the film which lifts it a little way above the bog standard and boring. Some great performances and – it has to be said – a great soundtrack and some reasonably exciting car chases. All in all, a good blend of fast cars and hit men, told briskly and fairly well.
