Baby Driver

The first half of 2017 brought us some car movies to whet our petrolhead appetite such as The Fate of the Furious, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Cars 3. However, with those car movies more than enough to crave our love for fast cars, there is nothing than more so than having another car movie that is somewhat unique for the young petrolhead.

Baby Driver

Starring Ansel Elgort, House of Cards' Kevin Spacey, Lily James, John Bernthal, Eiza Gonzalez, Jon Hamm, and Jamie Foxx, Baby Driver centers on a young getaway driver who wants to retire from his life of crime upon a fateful encounter with a young woman. However, when he was coerced to work for the head of a crime family, his fate has thrown into a tailspin as a failed robbery threatened his life, love, and freedom. Quite a story, isn't it?

Of all the car chase movies you've witnessed in a lifetime, Baby Driver is very different because it's like Fast and Furious meets The Transporter (pun intended) and the real credit for Baby Driver's car action thrill goes to the car the Baby Driver drove in the movie, a second-generation Subaru Impreza WRX. Sure, there is a Dodge Challenger in this movie, but him being on a Subie is as closest thing as you get when you mash two of your favorite car action movies into one unique film that is all about cars, coffee, robbers, cops, and the driving music provided for your driving pleasure.

You might think it's mad to say that it's a millennial take on classic car chase films but for Baby Driver, despite this film has some scratches that can't be wiped off with a chamois, this is one of the main reason why we love a good car movie but with Subaru doing a good job collaborating with this film, one thing springs up the mind of every Subarist watching this film, if the star car is the old second-generation Subaru WRX, why they didn't go for the newer 2018 WRX? No one really knows why but Subarists should better watch it and enjoy like it's another Fast and Furious or Transporter. Who knows, they might like it.

My rating: 3.4 out of 5.
