Storyline

Scott Pilgrim plays in a band which aspires to success. He dates Knives Chau, a high-school girl five years younger, and he hasn't recovered from being dumped by his former girlfriend, now a success with her own band. When Scott falls for Ramona Flowers, he has trouble breaking up with Knives and tries to romance Ramona. As if juggling two women wasn't enough, Ramona comes with baggage: seven ex-lovers, with each of whom Scott must do battle to the death in order to win Ramona.

Trivia

Each time Ramona's hair and clothes change color so does Scott's color scheme. When he first meets her at Julie's party her hair is pink and her shirt is pink with blue accent, he's standing next to her wearing pink tee showing beneath a blue outer shirt. The night she shows up at the apartment with blue hair and blue shirt under her coat, shortly after when they go meet Wallace at Lucas Lee's shoot Scott is standing next to her again wearing a blue inner jacket and later when they are walking down the street together with coffee her outer coat is blue and so is his. Then one final time when she's been taken by Gideon her hair and shirt are green, when Scott suits up to rescue her he's wearing a green shirt with green and white wristbands. See more »

Goofs

When Scott leaps up and goes to attack Todd across the table, and Todd holds him back with waves of energy, the girl drummer from TCAD is first leaning against the wall, disappears from the frame, and then reappears when the scene shifts. This is most likely a reference to the graphic novel where this character is able to teleport at will. She may be said to have teleported out of this location and then back into it. See more »

Quotes

Todd Ingram: Tell it to the cleaning lady on Monday.
Scott Pilgrim: What?
Todd Ingram: Because you'll be dust by Monday... because you'll be pulverized in two seconds. The cleaning lady? She cleans up... dust. She dusts.
Scott Pilgrim: So, what's on Monday?
Todd Ingram: 'Cause... it's Friday now, she's the weekends off, so... Monday, right?"
Envy Adams: Basically, you can't win this fight, so you better give up on this girl, 'cause Todd's gonna kill you.
Scott Pilgrim: You used to be so nice!

Fantastic!
12 November 2010 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Teenager problems (find yourself, get real, etc.) might not give anything to people considering themselves mayor adults, but consider this is a movie built on arcade video gaming motifs, I don't think it concerns mayor adults at all in the first place. I for one did not necessarily long for dark moral drama in this particular movie at all, I think the story was just about right for this movie, but you decide, if this is childish watch Haneke.

Now for the rest: Surprisingly, Scott Pilgrim features the best martial arts scenes in years. Every fight is choreographed and executed in the most awesome ways and the fact that it's not Jet Lee pulling off these moves makes it even more fun to watch. And you get the fights absolutely frequently which is really, really satisfying. The editing is incredibly skillful as probably the most crucial element that makes this work. It gives the movie an incredible rhythm, reaching new levels of dynamism and the use of CGI and the visual design is plain fantastic. The amount of creativity put into this part is mind- blowing, resulting genuine and most original style. The cast is cool and I don't think anyone should look for academy material here. I liked these kids and they suit the movie.

So, all together I found Scott Pilgrim being one of the most original, exciting and fun productions I've seen in my life. As a huge fan of things like fighting games, comics, or martial arts anime I felt satisfied to a point of screaming 'awesome' out loud after 30 minutes into the movie. Though people who never played Street Fighter or kept crossing fingers for Goku and friends yelling 'kamehameha' as evil bosses get pulverized by energy beams might not really get what Scott Pilgrim is about, it's very hard to deny the originality featured and the creative and professional qualities of the way it's executed.

Fantastic! 8/10
