Review: Baby Driver (2017)
After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
This film is one wild ride! It oozes style and action from the very beginning and never lets up. The music moves the story along and its done in a way that captivates the audience. The characters are fun, suave, and interesting and you become invested in them as you're slowly introduced to their fascinating world of robberies and fast getaways. Unfortunately, like a trying to sleep on 7 energy drinks, the film did not seem to know how to call it a night and give the movie an ending befitting the tone of the rest of the movie. Despite dragging during the last 20-30 minutes, the film as a whole was a very unique and enjoyable experience that many people will enjoy. As a fun summer action flick, this film certainly satisfies.
