Movie Reviews: Baby Driver is definitely different than any other action movie. Not just an ordinary action movie, this movie has an interesting spice that makes it different compared to other action movies. Admittedly, Edgar Wright, the director has a unique style of packaging Baby Driver into a biting action Movie.
Baby (Ansel Elgort), yes B-A-B-Y, is a teenager with unique abilities. Behind her innocent face Baby had guile and a runny brain. Even though he is still very young, he has been trusted by Doc (Kevin Spacey) to be in control behind the steering wheel of his car when his accomplices carry out crime missions.
Indeed, Baby has a freaky attitude. Unlike other teenagers, Baby likes to be alone and stingy talk. Plus, he likes listening to music through earphones connected from his iPod. Stored in the iPod are thousands of songs that he will play following his mood.
Now if other personnel armed with a gun, Baby enough with the iPod. When he is behind the wheel, he will play a lucky song to keep his mood upbeat. He was even able to trick and make the police frantically with his crazy driving action. That is why Doc really believes in Baby's talents.
One time Baby was asked by Doc to bring his accomplice robbed the post office. This time his teammates are lovers, Darling (Eiza González) and Buddy (Jon Hamm) and also Bats (Jamie Foxx), a cold-blooded brilliant criminal. In fact, Baby had repented and was reluctant to get involved again in criminal acts, moreover, his adoptive father forbade. Plus Baby has just been close to a girl named Debora (Lily James). Unfortunately, Doc is reluctant to let Baby go because he thinks Baby is his lucky charm.

Cultivation of a concept that takes a very long time to 2 decades is also one important factor why this movie looks mature.
Interestingly again, this movie has a cinematographic concept like musical films that often apply continuous shots without pauses. At the beginning of the Movie, we will be shown a scene where Baby follows the beat of the music with choreography that has been arranged nicely. Like a Movie, Baby also established himself as the main player who was starring in a musical Movie. Even though the people around him even though he was a strange person.
The aspect of the story is no less interesting. This movie has a strong scenario with a twist that is difficult to guess.
