BABY DRIVER

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - THE BEAT -

Dig­i­tal to­day, disc Mon­day

Shaun of the Dead di­rec­tor Edgar Wright scored the big­gest win of his ca­reer with this ach­ingly cool heist movie, tak­ing £171m at the global box of­fice on a bud­get of only £26m. Ansel El­gort stars as ace get­away driver Baby, who plans to do one last job be­fore hit­ting the road with Lily James’s pretty wait­ress. The di­a­logue pops, tyres squeal and bul­lets fly as the plot is pimped to the max with zippy edit­ing and know­ing hu­mour. Plus, the sound­track sam­ples a stream of great tunes of ev­ery type, in­clud­ing Jonathan Rich­man’s clas­sic Egyp­tian Reg­gae.
