Game on! Scott Pilgrim just met the girl of his dreams… literally. But in order for them to date, he must defeat her seven evil exes -- a rogues' gallery -- including an infamous skateboarder, a vegan rock star and fearsome identical twins! From the genre-smashing director of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead comes “a true original” (Entertainment Weekly) powered up by wit, action and groundbreaking visuals that you will want to watch again as soon as it’s over!
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a finger-blistering time capsule of right now, yet in a hundred years it will still be so crammed with charm, wit, brio, and exuberance it will still be irresistible. Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera, Superbad) is an accidental heartbreaker, a Canadian slacker who obsesses over the girls who've dumped him but hardly realizes how he's dumped other girls. But everything else in his life (including playing bass in a band) fades to insignificance when he lays eyes on Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Live Free or Die Hard), his deadpan pixie dream girl. Unfortunately, Ramona has some serious baggage: seven deadly exes, and Scott must battle them all if he wants to date Ramona. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is saturated in pop culture, particularly video games. Many events make almost no sense, but it doesn't matter--sheer narrative ferocity and glee of invention sweep the viewer along. Cera pushes his geek/dork dreamboat persona to new heights of sweet twee-ness; if this movie doesn't shoot him into the stratosphere, we live in a cold, unfeeling universe, bereft of justice. The whole supporting cast (including Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, and a host of less familiar but excellent young actors) plays every moment for all it's worth. This movie is supremely uncool and passionate, which makes it essential viewing. --Bret Fetzer

It's a great adaptation of the quirky 6-book comic set. As with any book to movie adaption, there were some things left out that I missed, but they only have so much time. The comic couldn't have the amazing soundtrack, or crazy visuals that the movie has.
The extras are great, and extensive, from the usual kinds of 'making of', commentaries, bloopers, deleted scenes and such, as well as a short cartoon chronicling one of Scott's highschool flashbacks that didn't make it into the movie. The extras FILL the blueray's free space. Which is a TON.
Having read the comic, I find the casting pretty darn good, except for the two main characters. I have nothing AGAINST either actor... they just don't look like the comics made me think of them. They did a good enough job though. The many musical performance segments in the story are pulled off amazingly.
To mangle a quote from the director, "In a musical, when feelings become too strong, people break into song. In this movie, when feelings get too strong, they break into fights." And fight they do. No bloody brutal fights, crazy impossible funny fights rarely seen in cartoons, let alone in live action.
If you like the movie, do yourself a favor and consider getting the soundtrack, or the books.
The story is about a 22 year old man named Scott Pilgrim. He has no job, plays in a band that's trying to get somewhere and just started dating a high school-er named Knives Chow. After he dreams about a girl than sees her at the library some days later he needs to know who this dream girl is. After running into her at a party he finds out she just moved her from America and works for Amazon.ca, she's Ramona Flowers. When he finally starts to date he finds out she has 7 evil ex's and he must beat them all to win her as his girl friend.
Edgar Wright did what many have tried and failed at. He made a comic movie that is within a comic world. When someone gets punched hard you see a BLAM and when the phone rings it make the noise and the words BRING, BRING, BRING come up. And it all works, and works well. It's fun and takes some of the major highlights of the series and makes it into one fun movie.
Michael Cera is great as Scott. Everyone else does their job and they do it well the casting is just amazing every single person works as who they are. Except for Kim the drummer for Sex Bo-omb, she does not look right and they don't show ***SPOILER*** how Scott dated her and their history that was a very important part of their relationship and why she is the way she is. And that there is another huge fight sequence that goes along with that.Read more ›
