Scott Pilgrim vs. the World(2010)
Michael Cera is Scott Pilgrim, a young slacker and bassist for a rubbish garage band called Sex Bob-omb. He's in love with the rollerblading Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Grindhouse, Deathproof). To win her, Scott must defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends who in turn all want to kill him. These boyfriends include a skateboarder, a vegan rock star and a pair of fearsome identical twins. The fantastic cast also includes Kieran Culkin, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh (Superman) and Anna Kendrick (Up In The Air).... More
This is a comic book adaptation and is Edgar Wright's third film after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.Hide
YOUR RATING & REVIEWWATCHLIST
BY Andrew Hedley Flicks Writer
British director Edgar Wright has impressed so far (Shaun of the Dead was brilliant; Hot Fuzz was full-on but fun). With graphic novel adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Wright returns to the twenty-something geekery celebrated in his much-loved TV show, Spaced. You get the feeling that he’s most comfortable here, giving Michael Cera a perfect platform to perform his schtick as a sexless slacker.... More
Wright’s bold direction and visual storytelling reveals a breathtaking tour-de-force of inventiveness. Every scene, every moment of every scene, feels inspired, from Batman-type ‘pow!’ writing onscreen, to camera movement, to sound design. And it’s non-stop. This movie is not for epileptics.
This is so relentless that you almost start to dread the dramatic bits. You start to enjoy the gravy rather than the meat. The romance isn’t quite so compelling, you don’t really care which girl Scott ends up with, you’d much rather just sit back and let your eyes be dazzled and your funnybones be tickled.
It’s a cool cast, full of bit-parts from emerging comedic talent like Up in the Air’s Anna Kendrick or Funny People’s Aubrey Plaza. As for the gleeful villains, Jason Schwartzman is Rushmore’s Max Fischer with an overdose of megalomania, while Chris Evans’ comic turn as a preening action-star promises great things for next year’s Captain America.
This wacky oddity is probably less likely to draw older crowds but deserves to be seen. Colourful, contemporary and akin to cinematic candy, Scott Pilgrim is continuously funny and endlessly inventive.Hide
