Baby Driver – Trailer vs. Movie #42 (-8.7)

As is typical with all my posts, please be aware there are possible spoilers.

The trailer that I watched for this movie is below:

Edgar Wright is a master of making transitions and filming to the cut of the film.  For example take a look at Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.  Scene after scene there are cleaver transitions and smooth “cuts” making the viewer wonder where one scene ends and the next one begins.  Wright continues that mastery here, but adds another brilliant twist making the cut and the music drive the movie.  James Gunn tries to do this in Guardians of the Galaxy, but Wright masters it.

This is Wright’s best movie to date.  Also some of the best car chases filmed in a movie in a long time.  The movie is character driven from start to finish rarely letting up.

The trailer does give away a lot of the plot of the movie, but there is still plenty that you don’t see.

To date I think this is the best movie of the year.
