Dumbass story. Period.
Scott Pilgrim falls head over heels over Ramona Flowers and "forgot" to break up with his current girlfriend, Knives Chau. He is then challenged to defeat Ramona's seven evil exes in order to be with Ramona.
But Edgar Wright made wonder out of it!
Seriously, the acting is lack lustre.
I do admit that Mary Elizabeth Winstead who plays Ramona Flowers is hot. And the character is mysteriously hot. But the rest of the actors are just like... plain, dead, boring.
Michael Cera suck big time. His face is permanently fixed to the expressionless semi-orgasmic face that has just undergone botox or something.
But what makes magic is that the movie has great special effects that makes up for the short of acting talent. Dude, if you play video games you would love this movie. If you like garage music bands, you would love this movie. If you love comics, you would love this movie. The whole time I was watching this movie, I was brought back to my kiddy days of playing Pokemon and Street Fighters. I was also reminded of popular games like VOD and Kingdom Hearts.
There are cutesy little things like item list, special "sound effects" in words, cool power burst everytime someone fights something, great colourful background when duel, and shit, even energy bar refill and lifeline status! And my favourite, enemies turning into coins when Scott Pilgrim defeats them! And the music!! It is exactly like I am playing Pokemon!
Another thing that is interesting to watch is Knives Chau played bri
liantly by Ellen Wong. I tell you, that is one creepy stalking ex!! And Chris Evans and Brandon Routh is so evil I think that they are hot!!
Ratings : 7.5/10. Dude, this is so cool even the plot is sort of pointless.
