Movie review by David Blackwell

Pat Benatar said love is a battlefield.  In SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, love is a battle as Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) must defeat the seven super powered evil exes of his new girlfriend Ramona  Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to be with her.   Meanwhile, Scott deals with breaking up with his 17 year old girlfriend Knives Chau (played to perfection by Ellen Wong) and playing with his band, Sex Bob-Omb, who are entering the battle of the bands to get a record label contract (which is less of a big dream these days given internet distribution and iTunes).  

 

The film is a love story done as a video game with levels and evil foes to vanquish.   Director Edgar Wright continues to impress with this kinetic mix of humor, action, and romance.   Every character in this film is fun to watch from Scott’s gay roommate to Scott’s ex-girlfriend who has her own band to his sister.   I can’t forget the woman who says the F bomb that it gets bleeped and blacked out every time she says the F word.   Brandon Routh is amusingly arrogant as Ramona’s ex-boyfriend who is an evil vegan band member of Scott’s ex’s group.   SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is a movie that I dug from the first frame to the last frame.  The only thing missing is a cameo or part for Simon Pegg.  Its hyper reality video game world is a fun one to visit and watch.   It might just end up as a cult film that the mass public might not be able to absorb and yet I frikking loved this one.
