Wright's best

This is, so far, probably the best Edgar Wright's movie. However, I still have to look at his debut "A Fistful of Fingers", but I doubt it can even be compared with this. Scott Pilgrim is a twenty-two year old boy with a serious lack of confidence, who dates a 17-year-old student and falls in love with a girl with a complicated emotional past. He has to find the strength to break up with the kid and defeat the seven exes of his new girl. Instead of boring or pathetic love drama, this film Scott's overcoming his own insecurity and girl's emotional luggage displays in the form of fights in the style of "Mortal Combat". Whole movie was made in a combination of video game and comic-book style. Acting and music are good, and the camera, direction and editing will make your head spin. In this action romantic comedy, Wright once again shows his skill and genius.

9/10

Just...fine

There's just - just - enough to this film to keep you watching, but no more. Visually, it is interesting. In fact, the inventive mixture of comic-book, video game and live action is the film's biggest plus. I particularly appreciated the fact that there was no attempt to confine the vivacity of the world to any tedious real-world logic. It is over-the-top, it is impossible, it works. Unfortunately, the settings and the generic urban colour palettes are just a bit too blank, sapping some of the character from the scenes. There are also a handful of good laughs, although much of the humour didn't really fly with me. I could, however, appreciate the artistry of it - it was well-written, just not to my taste. Unfortunately, there's not much else to commend. I am not familiar with the original story, but the film's adaptation of it is paper-thin. There is so little in the way of nuance, and it feels very one-paced. The middle hour of the film made absolutely no impression on my perception of the characters, and the formula quickly became tedious and repetitive, meaning that the ending, devoid of all tension by what precedes it, was a damp squib. This is at least in part down to the emptiness of the characters. A simple story can be mightily effective with some charismatic leads, but they're just so dull. The band are soulless, the exes might as well all be the same person for all the scope they're allowed, Michael Cera sleepwalks through playing himself as usual, and Ramona is a husk of utterly conventional unconventionality. The only one who I developed any interest in was Knives. All in all, a bit of a disappointment - an interesting experiment let down by an uninspiring story and a strange lack of spark.

Pretty Good Comic Book/Videogame Film!

Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ellen Wong and Kieran Culkin star in this 2010 action-comedy based on the comics/graphic novels. Cera (Superbad) plays the title role of Scott, a nerdy, American teen who plays in a band with his pals and is trying to get over a recent break-up with a girl. He starts dating Asian girl, Knives (Wong), but eventually falls for other girl, Ramona (Winstead) and tries to break it off with knives. Scott learns that Ramona has 7 ex-lovers he must battle with if he wants to stay with her. Culkin (Home Alone) plays Scott's gay roommate, Wallace. Chris Evans (Captain America), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) also appear. This is a pretty good film that pokes fun/pays tribute to comic books and videogames. The cast is decent and there's neat effects. Check this one out at least once.
