The Reel Review
In a career-defining role, Ansel Elgort stars as the immensely likable Baby, the getaway driver for a revolving team of Atlanta bank robbers, who listens to music around the clock to drown out his tinnitus.
Writer/director Edgar Wright (of the hilarious and clever films Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz) delivers an intricately choreographed, intense, music-laden, one-of-a-kind cinematic experience, aided by a strong supporting cast (Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and the city of Atlanta).
The only weakness – the story could have benefited from a bit of editing in the final 30 minutes. Still, it’s a winner.
