Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It's a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Deborah, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc's plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby's skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music? Written by

Bats names three titles that are considered "hex songs:" The Guns N' Roses cover of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," The Eagles' "Hotel California," and Boyz II Men's "End of the Road." "Knockin'" was based on a superstition held by an ex-convict that Edgar Wright interviewed, where he said that a robbery gig would be called off if the song is played over the radio prior to executing the plan. "Hotel California" is one of the songs that in real-life Jamie Foxx absolutely detests (he ad-libbed that line). While there has yet to be an explanation for End of the Road, it highlights the complicated relationship between Baby and Debora throughout the film that he was forced to drop things for Doc's heists.

During the post office robbery it is raining hard. When the getaway started, the sun was shining bright. However, the weather could have changed over time. See more »
Hey Baby, you know it's funny. Even though I heard it so many times in the court case, I still can't get used to the fact that your real name is Miles. It's a cool name though. I can think of a lot of great Miles songs. But we still have to get through all those Baby songs first. I can't wait until the day when it's just us, music and the road. See you later Baby. All my love, Deborah.

Everything about the film is pretty much pitch perfect if you ask me. Lets start with the cars. I have not been a fan of Fast and Furious films, but the chase scenes in this film run circles around that series if a certain reality of the moves matters to you. This is more in line with Bullit,French Connection, and the Italian Job films as far as great chases.
The music, fun, simply fun. Songs from every decade of my lifetime.
Action best pure adrenaline action in years. You will be truly on the edge of your seat during much of the film.
Humor, what can I say, love Edgar Wright's humor and this is his best.
And oh what a cast! Loved every one of the leads performances. I think Ansel was a standout, but come on Jamie Foxx, Spacey, Hamm and the beautiful Lily James. And the other leading lady, Eiza Gonzalez, was unknown to me, but she was great with one terrific diner speech in particular. I was lucky enough to see this at an early screening in Denver. I will be seeing this in the theaters once again when it opens, and I very rarely watch movies more than once.
Sometimes when I see a review fawning over a film like this, I think troll. Best way to check that out is see how many films the reviewer has reviewed and rated. I have over 4,000 rated films here. Not a lot of tens either.Best film so far this year.
