  1. I enjoyed reading this! I definitely had some of the same thoughts while watching. The camera work and music were just incredible. Even during slower moments, the camera work in this film stood out above most. But I do have a slight complaint with Kevin Spacey’s character. While Spacey himself was incredible, his character was just too inconsistent to be believable. While I think a better Doc would have made for a stronger movie, I do not think he detracts enough to undo the positives of the film. Overall, I found it to be fantastic.

      Hmm interesting! I didn’t have any gripes with his character. If anything, I had an issue with the romance.

      • It just seemed like we got three or four different versions of Doc, and none of the changes were really explained. And, yeah, I can’t argue with that. We were just expected to accept the romance; it was never truly earned. Still, very fun to watch!

        Exactly, I just had too much fun with everything else that I didn’t care!

    Caught this today. Loved it, especially from a technical standpoint. Like you say, the editing is masterful, sound and vision matching up perfectly. It also has one of the best opening scenes I’ve seen in a long time. Great write up. I’m sending people here to read your review as i cannot be bother to write one!

    Saw this one yesterday. Nice to find a summer movie that wasn’t a sequel. The acting was excellent, Jamie Fox played a guy you love to hate.
    That said, I didn’t love the movie. Once was enough for me 🙂

    I have yet to see it but I read an interview with Wright and he was very proud of the fact that Baby Driver was one of the only original films made amidst all the remakes, reboots, etc. So I’m quite excited to check it out.
