"Baby Driver": Film Critic Chuck Koplinski, Dinner And A Movie

Sponsored by Savoy 16 IMAX

CHAMPAIGN, Ill - After being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), a young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.  Writer/director Edgar Wright has fashioned a slick entertainment that perfectly melds music and action with a glib sensibility that pokes fun at the material while energizing it.  It comes apart during the third act but by that time, Wright and his game cast – which also includes Jamie Foxx, John Hamm and Hon Bernthal – have accrued so much good will that these faults can be forgiven.  3 ½ Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated R.  113 minutes. AMC-C, AMC-D, SAV.
