Baby Driver vs 21
Have you ever watched a movie that captured your attention so much that you were afraid of missing even a single scene? Well I have. While watching Baby Driver, I couldn’t stop thinking about how the plot is so similar to the movie 21. Both action and crime-related movies give you a thrill and similar on other ways but are also unique. Baby Driver is about a talented young getaway driver named Baby who works for a crime boss, Doc, to pay his debt for stealing one of his cars. His job is to help the robbers his boss assembles flee from the scene of robbery. The movie 21 is about a gifted MIT student named Ben who aspires to study at Harvard Medical School. However, there is no way he can afford the tuition with his low-wage job. Then Ben’s professor, Mickey Rosa, sees his potential to become part of a secret society that plays illegal blackjack to win money. The main characters’ inability to protect themselves from the skill they have causes them to do something illegal, which leads to consequences.
The main characters are both brilliant, talented, and skillful in their own ways. Ben is academically gifted. He has perfect grades, amazing test scores and a confirmed acceptance into his dream school. On the other hand, Baby’s talent is car-centric and he also coordinates his escapes to the beat of the music on his iPod. His life is surrounded with music, and he even makes remixes from daily conversations. The specific skills that the main characters possess is what makes them so distinct from each other. Both characters encounter leading ladies that they fall in love with. In Baby Driver, Baby meets a waitress named Deborah who quickly captures his interest. This girl completely changes his outlook on life, and he wants to change the way he is living. He becomes determined to quit his illegal job as soon as possible for her sake. In 21, Ben develops his feelings for this girl named Jill, who is also part of the secret society he has joined. She is the one who coaxed him to join the team, and because of his attraction to her, he becomes more interested in joining. Both movies have antagonists that happen to be the protagonists’ bosses. Halfway through the movie, both characters find out how dangerous their bosses can be. In Baby Driver, Doc blackmails Baby when he tries to completely quit his job. Doc threatens to harm his foster father as well as Deborah. Also, in 21, Rosa threatens to ruin Ben’s life if he does not give back the money he owes him. However, in Baby Driver, Doc changes towards the end of the movie. He helps Baby when he tries to escape with his girlfriend because he understands how it feels like to be in love. In contrast, Rosa stays the same until the end of the movie. He keeps his greediness and desire to obtain more money. In both films, the characters show a dramatic need to protect themselves and to mature enough to know how to wheel this...
