Edgar Wright's latest movie Baby Driver is super fun! This is an original, action-packed movie with rocking style.
Edgar Wright is really proving himself to be one of the best modern directors! The Cornetto Trilogy is hilarious, with the first entry, 2004's Shaun of the Dead, being the gem; it's one of my favorite comedies of all time, a solid Fresnerd A in my opinion. In addition, I think 2010's Scott Pilgrim vs the World is one of most underappreciated movies of all time.
Wright's witty humor dialogue, unique characters, and fast camera work are all on display here. Plus, just like James Gunn with the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, Wright has strongly incorporated fresh, outstanding music into both the feel and plot of the movie. For all these elements to be used in a car chase movie, it just cranks the energy up to 11. The first act is the best I've seen all year.
My one complaint is that some of the character motivations are a little off. The romance felt so very much rushed that the characters' life or death decisions for one another seemed somewhat unbelievable. I also think the antagonism could have been handled better. Without going into spoilers, a certain character's change in behavior just seemed to come out of nowhere.
Still this is a great, fun movie. A Fresnerd A- from me. Everyone seems to be raving about this movie. What did you guys think???
