Unbelievably well edited — the action beats matching the musical beats is a pretty unreal feat and a fun gimmick. And what a banger soundtrack! The problem is the third act, when Baby makes decisions totally counter to his character. The psycho killer turn comes out of nowhere and runs totally counter to the scared kid we see throughout the rest of the picture, and the Bonnie and Clyde plot and the ending are just unbelievable. It feels like these characters went though a series of story beats for a plot that Edgar Wright couldn’t figure out. 

Love the first two thirds, though.
