Director Edgar Wright’s car-chase thriller starring Ansel Elgort in the title role has so much va-va-voom it will leave you positively grinning with pleasure.

The high-octane delights include a charismatic hero, brilliantly choreographed action and a soundtrack so hot it leaves scorch marks.

Elgort is the gifted wheelman for Kevin Spacey’s Atlanta crime kingpin who wants to quit, especially when he falls for Lily James’ sweet diner waitress, but he ends up having to pull one last job with Jamie Foxx’s unhinged hard nut and Jon Hamm and Eiza Gonzalez’s loved-up latter-day Bonnie and Clyde.

Scoring the action to a string of rock, pop, funk and soul gems, Wright gives a well-worn genre drop-dead cool, while Elgort brings just the right amount of cocky charm and callow vulnerability to his role.
