First Review Of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
"I just got back from seeing a directors cut of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The world" in Las Vegas, and let me start by saying "Pure 8-bit amazingness!" The night started off by waiting in line for about 20 minutes. In that amount of time I was given a piece of paper that read "The movie you are about to watch is a mix between JUNO and MORTAL KOMBAT." I instantly knew what I was going to see.
Universal Pictures still hasn't set a release date yet for Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World adaptation, but several people have been lucky enough to see a special screening. This report was sent in to SHH...
I'm not going to give away any spoilers or key scenes or anything, but let me say that the movie is definitely a nerdgasm. Aside from some of the blue and green screen still in the movie, and the wires carrying the actors, it was a very well played out movie, pretty true to the actual comic series.
Michael Cera was a perfect cast for Scott Pilgrim, as well as the girl who played Knives Chau (Ellen Wong). There where numerous references to everything video games. People exploding into coins, life bars, experience points, and even a brief Final Fantasy reference.
The seven X's were perfect castings, and all the fight scenes where awesome. It has been a while since I have seen a comic-based movie that was actually different than the standard of these movies. The fight scene actually had the whole "vs" voice overs. "FIGHT!" "PERFECT" "COMBO" "FINISH HIM"!
Overall the movie was excellent!!! And I can't wait for it to actually come to theaters!!!"
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Brandon Routh and Jason Schwartzman.
