2.8 The first half hour or so is entertaining fun. After Spacey and Elgort are "even", the film is in desperate need of an interesting plot. Hardly anything makes sense, least of all Foxx´s character. All in all Baby Driver is not half as clever and cool as it thinks it is.
I was expecting...more. Great premise, very slick and a joyously overpowering soundtrack. I even dug the set up with the various flavors of robber in the motley heist crews and could overlook Spacey's oddly stiff caricature, but towards the end, when the film got going, I wasn't really onboard with where it was going. Shame.
