A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
Following Kick-Ass' heroics, other citizens are inspired to become masked crusaders. But Red Mist leads his own group of evil supervillains to get revenge, kill Kick-Ass and destroy everything he stands for.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
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.Written by

Like the graphic novel, Scott Pilgrim is seen wearing a t-shirt with the letters "SP" in a heart. While these are Scott's initials, the design is the logo for the band Smashing Pumpkins, an influence of creator Bryan Lee O'Malley. Scott is also seen wearing a "Zero" t-shirt, an iconic shirt often worn by Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan. Additionally, one of the film's acts is titled "The Infinite Sadness" which is a reference to the Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. See more »

What else do you want? Great film. The type of extraordinary film that draws one to the cinema. I own the DVD and it is getting a workout. The fantasy, the jokes, the romance, the legs, the feminine hair.
Yeah. I am a fan.
