Like all Edgar Wright movies, Baby Driver is a blast, featuring wall-to-wall music and a surfeit of inspired ideas. But itís also something of a mess, blaring pop tunes of every sort as it lurches between rip-roaring car chases, colorful pre-caper banter, and a twee young-love subplot.
(Peter Debruge, Variety)
The good news is that, although Baby Driver is not much of a movie, it is an excellent music video ó a club sandwich for the senses, lavishly layered with more than thirty songs.
(Anthony Lane, New Yorker)
Baby Driverís superb set pieces and unpredictable song selections keep the story humming along, which is crucial since Wrightís plotting isnít quite as deft. Read full review
