SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD (2010)
What is the password? Umm... Whatever! That is the attitude of 23-year-old Scott Pilgrim. By watching thiz film, amazingly I feel like back to become a teenager again with my skate board under my feet and baseball cap on my head. It tells about Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who has a new girlfriend, Ramona Flower (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Now, he must defeat Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in video game style duels. Meanwhile, Scott plays in a band called Sex Bob-omb with his friends. The movie is directed by Edgar Wright who brought us “Shaun of The Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007). He is always able to make any comedy to look smart but it’s also funny at the same time. On thiz latest feature, there are some unique and hilarious characters such as Scott’s gay roommate Wallace (Kieran Culkin), Scott’s annoying ex-girlfriend Knives (Ellen Wong) and Ramona’s Indian silly ex-boyfriend Matthew Patel (Satya Bhabha). Even more, the movie is surrounded by fresh Cameo appearances from Anna Kendricks, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Evans, Thomas Jane and our last “Superman” Brandon Routh. Michael Cera seems to be a perfect choice for Scott Pilgrim. He does not even have to act so hard to become thiz character. Mary Elizabeth Winstead also delivers a believable character with some punk girl attitudes. The movie is based on the first three series of six black-and-white comic strips by Bryan Lee O’Malley. The Art Direction is very attractive and colorful. They use comical fonts to emphasize the sound and the fighting scene is one of the main attractions. Most of the fight scenes are mind-blowing with those graphics and animations. Yeah it looks ridiculous sometimes, but surely it is well choreographed. Once again, the only way to comprehend thiz movie is by letting yourself being young again. Thiz movie reminds us of how we enjoyed adolescence by living in our own world. Once in awhile, all of us were Scott Pilgrim and there was only us Vs. the world. For me, thiz movie deserves to receive 1up and 1,000 combos!
Stars : 7,5/10
