In this article, we will talk about the plot of the newly made picture, and also learn about the actors from the movie "Baby Driver". If you haven't seen the movie yet, be careful, there are spoilers below.
Let's start with the fact that this is an action-packed thriller with elements of action and crime. Edgar Wright's new film may strongly remind you of the style of the no less famous director Guy Ritchie, who knows how to combine the incompatible: black humor and a love line, bloody action movie and drama.
The plot of the film revolves around a young guy who is a fan of speed and drive. Driving the main actor loves more than anything in the world, and that is why he attracted the attention of a criminal leader to himself and his talent. He received an offer to join the team and do completely uncharitable deeds,which, moreover, are well rewarded. Everything changes in a guy's life when he meets a girl completely by chance and falls in love with her.

After all, it is simply impossible to leave the group, otherwise you will be pursued all your life. Besides, how can a crime boss let go of a guy who has never failed a task and has become a virtual mascot? Being illegal, the protagonist is forced to get rid of his "colleagues" in order to start a new life. Let's get acquainted with the actors of the film "Baby Driver", and also find out where such an unusual name came from.
Revealing the secret of the film's title
Surprisingly, the Russian distributor did not distort the title of the film and adapt it to local residents. The reason for the strange name of the film is simple: the main character is called the Kid (from the English Baby), who became a real ambassador in driving. The guy felt so comfortable being in the car that he could go over the speed limit on any highway. This is what the rest of the film's characters call the main character - the Kid, although it sounds very unusual. Let's find out more about the cast of Baby Driver.
Ansel Elgort is an indispensable driver
Baby Driver begins with a story about a boy who lost his parents in a terrible car accident. Left an orphanthe guy was able to survive the tragic event in his life, but this situation did not pass without a trace - the Kid had an incessant ringing in his ears. It drove the "Baby Driver" actor crazy. In order not to lose his mind and keep everything under control, the main character discovers the world of music. That is why the viewer sees the Kid with headphones around the clock, and being in a car with the radio turned on. The guy is talented and could have gone a very different path, but he has to look after his stepfather, who raised him, grew old and eventually went blind.
Based on the plot, the viewer guesses that the actor of the film "Baby Driver" will not be able to work at a prestigious and highly paid job because of his illness, so he decides to use his talent for good. So the main character gets acquainted with a criminal gang, which gladly accepts the ideal driver into the team. After meeting Deborah (a waitress at a roadside cafe), Baby falls in love with her and decides to leave crime. To do this, he needs to pay all his debts with the help of another robbery.
What happened to the main character at the end?
The main actor of "Baby Driver" surprised the audience. The reason is simple: when the film was coming to an end, it was clear that the young man would complete the task and leave the group. However, he understands that he will not be able to leave the driver's post just like that - he will be killed anyway. So what did the hero of the movie "Baby Driver" do? The guy agrees to the task, comes with the team to the future placecrimes. When the mission is completed and it's time to take the criminal team back to headquarters, the Kid begins to get rid of all his "colleagues" one by one. However, he is not experienced enough to get rid of the hated and cold-blooded killer - Buddy.
The film "Baby Driver" ends unexpectedly, but typical of a crime thriller. The protagonist takes Deborah and they leave the city, but because of the crime committed, all the streets were cordoned off, and the Kid is wanted. In addition, Buddy is chasing the guy and wants to kill him along with the waitress. The actor in the film "Baby Driver" is arrested. At the same time, all colleagues of the criminal group are dead. The guy is given a long term in a strict regime colony, but his newfound love is ready to wait for him from prison. Ultimately, the film ends like this: the main character is released and Deborah meets him at the exit from a place not so distant.
The actor of the movie "Baby Driver" showed himself from a new side. The name of Kevin Spacey's hero is Doc, and he is a crime boss, customer and gang leader. Initially, the viewer sees the character as aggressive, vicious and cruel. After all, what should be the leader of the group, who runs the real thugs and sends them to big things? However, Kevin Spacey in the movie "Baby Driver" understands the main character and sympathizes with him. Doc has a family and children whom he loves immensely and is ready to take care of all his life. He strongly supportsA baby, but keeping a distance so as not to cause hatred and jealousy of the rest of the team members.
Darling and Buddy
Cold-blooded and brutal killers, experienced thieves and bandits, and besides, lovers. In the movie "Baby Driver" this couple is worth each other, so at the end of the picture, the Kid provoked Buddy's hatred by killing his beautiful Darling. These actors were played by Eiza Gonzalez and Jon Hamm.
This is a very colorful couple that can shoot a dozen enemies and then, as if nothing had happened, get lost in a long and passionate kiss. Darling is beautiful, sexy, feminine and sensual. Buddy is brutal and bad. They do not trust the guy, but the protagonist of the movie "Baby Driver" is an excellent driver, who is the mascot of the group. As the film drew to a close, the hatred for the hero became even stronger:
When the "Baby Driver" actor decided to leave for a few hours before the last and important robbery, he was caught by Crazy, played by Jamie Foxx. Finding the guy in the car, the hero brought him back to headquarters. At this point, it turns out that Buddy found a huge box of tapes and on each of them were written the names of the group. What were the actors supposed to do in Baby Driver? The roles and the plot are thought out so interesting that the viewer watches how the Kid tries to justify himself to his associates. He explains that he likes to remix voices recorded on a recorder: adding music and beats, speeding up the tempo andthe result is a unique song that drowns out the noise in the ears. However, none of the "colleagues" believe the guy. To make sure the words of the Kid are true, the heroes turn on the cassettes and are surprised that they are really remixed recordings. Thus ends the intriguing moment, and the trust in the guy returns.
On "Kinopoisk" the actors and roles of "Baby Driver" got a stable 7.5 points, but on international sites the ratings are not lower than 8-9 points. Based on the fee received and the funds spent, we can say with confidence that the film paid off. The work of Edgar Wright, together with the cost of the cast, did not exceed $ 35 million. And the whole team, consisting of cameramen, assistants, producers, shared 230 million dollars.
The actors and roles of "Baby Driver" captivated the audience, but the existing reviews can be divided into two fronts. Firstly, the trailer and teaser were so riveting that in the end everyone expected not a thriller coupled with an action movie, but an action with special effects. Secondly, the plot of the picture is hackneyed, therefore it is suitable only for a single viewing. Thirdly, the story itself is interesting, in the spirit of Guy Ritchie, but director Edgar Wright could not reach the style of his famous colleague. Fourth, the acting is top notch and the film deservedly got its high scores thanks to Kevin Spacey and Ansel Elgort.
