Phil's Quick Capsule Review

Best Film of 2017: Baby Driver

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Wow.  Having been often luke warm of some of Wrights films (Scott Pilgrim and Worlds End to name but two), Baby Driver arrived with the danger of a great trailer, loads of hype and Wright fans proclaiming it as up there with his best work.  And you know what… they are right.  One of the best films so far of 2017, Baby Driver delivers.  Performances, soundtrack, direction, script… the films a knock out.  In short what you have here is a True Romance for the 21st century and that’s about the highest compliment I can pay this film.  Total dynamite.

Best Bit: James & Elgort’s chemistry is electric

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: True Romance, Badlands, Hot Fuzz

IMDB Rating: 9 out of 10 stars
