"I get absolutely no pleasure in taking candy from baby."
Baby has been boosting cars since before he could see over the dash. After his parents died in a terrible accident, he was taken under the wing of a crime boss named Doc (Spacey). Doc caught Baby boosting his Benz and taking off with a trunk full of something expensive. It's never specifically stated what it was. Years later and Baby is close to paying off his debt to Doc by driving for various heists. We're aware from the start that Baby doesn't fit into the life of crime. Not because we're told but because of his soft eyes and love for music. Eventually though, it's confirmed for Baby by his foster dad that he needs to get out and quickly. He's a good kid and he's passionate about music. Another kid who loves music is the film's director Edgar Wright. Fans of this visionary artist and those who've seen his other works such as "Shawn of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," will be familiar with Wright's style of musically timed cuts and action sequences synced to the beat of the song playing. In Baby Driver, Wright takes this to a whole new level by cleverly developing a character who always has to listen to music. Not only did the accident take Baby's parents life but it caused him to develop tinnitus. To drown out the ringing in his ears he constantly listens to music. This is the heart of Baby's character and Wright has a field day with the musical queues. There's a huge gunfight sequence timed to "Tequila." It's a fun scene but it's only the start of what becomes a thrilling and entertaining climax. The build up to the final showdown is a string of great scenes one after another. The tension rises. The music gets louder. Blood starts spilling and it doesn't stop. Baby Driver might not be Wright's funniest movie to date, but for me it is the most entertaining.
