Baby Driver starts with a chase scene, which reminds me so much of the chase scenes with the cops that you encounter when playing the E.A. video game Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2005).
With that image in mind (that is believing that the reader has played the above game) just imagine the excitement that came along with watching this movie. I found myself jerking wishing I was the one playing Baby (name given to the lead) in this movie.

Baby Driver is a crime action film written and directed by Edgar Wright and it is exciting, thrilling and worth every minute you spend watching this movie.
Imagine a movie that starts with everybody you know, the A-listers like Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx being on the villain side. The movie puts the lead on the villain side too and the feel is different from the one you get when watching Transporter.
The movie’s first scene introduces us to the lead character and his major role in this movie, which is a getaway driver. He works for Doc (Kevin Spacey) who organizes the crew and the job that needs Baby to drive like hell and get away from the police and bring the cash home.

Now Baby is on a deal with Doc to do a certain amount of jobs and be free, but like all criminals Doc didn’t keep to his side of the deal and pulls Baby back in again by threatening to hurt everyone he loves. Now Baby is stuck with a crew who are violent and will not follow the plan and he needs to get out safe and alive to be able to continue life with his girlfriend and foster father.

Edgar Wright is a very much popular guy on the wheel, his popular work the Three Flavours Cornetto film trilogy [Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World's End (2013)] a set of movies he did with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Edgar is a director I'm very much fond of and his list of great movies are beyond cool, he wrote the Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011) and wrote and was executive producer of Disney’s Ant-Man (2015).

The infusion of music in this movie is something you will enjoy to the fullest, as Baby is a lover of all kind of music genre, we get to hear a feel of his picks as he spends most of the time with earphones in his ears. Every moment of intense whether it is from the twist and turn of the plot or Baby’s driving will have you glued. Go see this movie and one of the best bass player is also in this movie, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers.
