“Baby Driver” is an action/comedy written and directed by Edgar Wright. It follows a career criminal trying to sever his ties to the criminal underworld and skip town with his girlfriend. The film’s stylistic editing is paired with a vibrant soundtrack and strong visuals that make for a fun watch. The film’s pacing is pretty unbalanced but the more action centric moments are where the movie really shines. The decision to go for an old-school practical stunt driving pays off with great chase scenes and great set-pieces. Despite having a pretty star-studded cast, most characters feel flat. Jamie Foxx’s character feels like a stereotype most of the time, acting very erratic and threatening. “Baby Driver” is a film that is more style than substance, but in this case that’s a good thing. You can buy it on DVD or Blu-ray on Oct. 10.

Rating: 3/5 stars
