Baby Driver is an action movie that is different in its approach to using racing and speed in its theme.
Since the advent of the Fast & Furious movies, action films involving the use of fast cars and daring stunts have been extensively produced around the world. From Hollywood to Bollywood, many movie producers raced to produce a movie with the same concept and theme.
Different mehod of storytelling
But for the movie Baby Driver, the renowned director Edgar Wright, well-known for directing the British movie Hot Fuzz, came up with quite a different approach to the concept of using racing and speed in a story plot. Baby Driver approaches the theme of racing and speed in a unique way in developing the storyline and characterisation.
Start with the music
This is because the movie was started with a soundtrack first then choreographed according to the movements and main actions of the storyline. When met at the Baby Driver's film media conference in Malaysia, Wright said that the idea and script of the movie was written a dozen years ago and it began with the selection of appropriate songs.
From these songs, Wright listed every movement and action in the film according to the rhythm of the selected songs. It turns out, this refreshingly new method of storytelling succeeded in producing a fresh and different approach to a film that separates it from other movies using similar theme of racing cars and speed.
In fact, Wright also agrees that Baby Driver can be regarded as a musical film but it is however different from traditional musical films like Les Miserables or Pitch Perfect.
Star studded performance
Additionally, with strong performances of famous stars such as Ansel Elgort (Hunger Games), Lily James, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Kevin Spacey, Baby Driver will definitely appeal to the audience.
