I've seen it twice now and man it's easily my favorite movie of the summer so far. There's a reason why this movie has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes Score after 32 reviews.
Simple premise and story. Baby, who is a wheelman, is working to get out from under his boss to whom he owes a debt. Meets a girl and falls in love and now really wants to leave the life. But of course, complications arise. Very straightforward. But it's the execution of all of these familiar elements that puts this one way above other movies of its type.
At times very high octaine and other times a suspenseful slow burn this movie makes use of music and action in a way that you seldom see these days. This movie wasn't made, it was CRAFTED. And it's all heart.
Directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, Scott Pilgrim vs The World) starring Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Flea.
