Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Movie Review

The movie trailer tells it all: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is just plain bizarre. But thanks to Michael Cera and the other cast members, the movie was a lot funnier than you’d think.


Heartbroken

Michael Cera plays Scott Pilgram, a pathetic 22 year old who plays base in a horrible band, lives in a dumpy ‘secret lair’ with his gay roommate, and recently had his heartbroken by a now-famous rockstar. His rebound girlfriend, a 17 year old Chinese girl named Knives, becomes Scott’s band’s one and only groupie.


The League of Evil Ex’s

But when Scott sees the girl of his dreams at a party, he goes out of his way to pursue her. Ramona has bright dyed red hair, a mysterious attitude and a secret past that surfaces over the course of the film. While performing a gig, Scott’s band is interrupted by Ramona’s first of seven evil ex’s, who all have magic powers and insane fighting skills. If Scott wants to keep dating Ramona, he’ll have to defeat all seven ex’s. But in the process, Scott learns that he has an evil ex of his own.


The Bottom Line

Is this movie silly? Yes. Bizarre? Yes. Ridiculous? Absolutely. But is it funny? Without a doubt. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is so full of dry, sarcastic and ironic humor that you’ll be laughing out loud every few minutes. But the humor isn’t quite enough to sustain the film. The fight scenes with the evil ex’s combine video game icons, arcade game graphics and sounds, and comic book onomatopoeias (words like POW!, THUD!, etc). The scenes go a little too far, and last a little too long. Overall, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a 6 out of 10.

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
