Directed by the acclaimed British director Edgar Wright, who has already given us great films like Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End, the movie is slowly creeping up the “movie to watch out” charts and the reasons being mainly the glowing reviews!

In its review, Variety states “Like all Edgar Wright movies, “Baby Driver” is a blast, featuring wall-to-wall music and a surfeit of inspired ideas. But it’s also something of a mess …”

New York Magazine has stated – “Plays out like blasting your coolest friend’s record collection in your car at 100 mph on the Atlanta freeway while cops close in on all sides – essentially what happens in the movie again and again, to always-riveting effect.”

Hollywood Reporter has called it “A sweet and speed-crazed crime film you can dance to.” while Nerdist says “This is a ride well worth taking and one that will leave you with a smile on your face (and many, many earworms) long after credits roll.”

Concluding its review, TheVerge mentions “Baby Driver is exhilarating, fantastically entertaining, and mildly frustrating, all at the same time. Wright’s directorial execution has never been better, and he’s able to construct chase sequences that put the Fast and Furious series to shame.”

To top this all, “Baby Driver” has a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes on 23 reviews!!! The caper releases on June 28th, 2017 in USA and lets hope this turns out to be good and is a box-offce success!
