Scott Pilgrim Versus The World. Which in my opinion is one of the best if not Wright’s best film he’s made to this day, however, after seeing Baby Driver my opinions have changed because Baby Driver is a sophisticated, and Clever, Unique and very Different film.  That is above all else quite original. Wright put’s a unique take on nearly 4 different genres and blends them all into one. The film blend’s The element’s of a musical, Minus the singing, elements of old school Action and Crime Thrillers and elements of classic cheesy old school romance mixed and rolled All into one, Baby-driver is a High Octane, Edge of your seat, fast paced and high adrenaline thrill ride, Which makes this film such a joy to watch. It’s really something you gotta see to believe, Specifically due to its amazing Stunt Driving work. Which was excellently Choreographed by Edgar Wright, and Performed by Darren Prescott?

~Pro’s and Con’s
Pros.
Let’s start right with the pro’s then we can go into the cons. One thing I liked about this film is the pacing, Baby Driver is synched perfectly with the music and every sequence is timed just right in order to make a perfect atmosphere and inner soundtrack within the film, This brings me to my next pro for this film. The musical choices. Edgard Wright Creates the perfect soundtrack for this film as all the song’s perfectly encapsulated each scene, in my opinion.
The music truly brings an added sense of energy to each of them. Another pro for Baby Driver was The acting. All the performances were well done. However, there were two performances that stood out above the rest. Those of Ansel Elgort and Lily James. these two shared the perfect onscreen chemistry. and I found myself truly caring for their characters. and These two were the stars of this film for sure.

Con’s
Now for my con’s for this film.
To be honest, I can’t find much wrong with this film. except perhaps some of the character development. I do think they focused a little too much of their efforts on building the relationship, between Baby and Deborah but in my opinion They seemed to have an already established connection and one of the scenes in this film feel’s out of place and forced Becuase of that, So the two side stories lost some creditability due to lack of time put into them, And as a result, of this the other characters aren’t as interesting. So you kinda stop caring, about most of them, except Baby and Deborah. However, I do believe that’s what Wright’s vision was intending and I understand that. however, I believe that adding more layer’s to every character would have made that final Climax even more satisfying. Regardless of one minor flaw I had. Baby Driver is an almost perfect film and is still fantastic.

~ Final Thought’s and Overall Rating
Overall, Baby-driver is the perfect pairing of film and music.
It’s truly sensational.

Baby Driver get’s an Overall Rating of 9 0ut of 10 popcorns.
