Story Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) a 22-year-old guy starts dating a 17-year-old girl Knives (Ellen Wong). Knive’s becomes obsessed with Scott’s Band Kim (Alison Pill), Stephen (Mark Webber) and Young Neil (Johnny Simmons). While Knives falls for Scott, Scott falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).
Too win Ramona’s heart Scott must defeat her seven evil exes’. Each ex has a different fighting ability and style. Can Scott win Ramona’s heart and win the battle of the bands?
Verdict With a full range of characters including Scott’s gossip obsessed sister and gay roommate we are giving a full blown perfectly original action film. Each fight is like watching an arcade game and this comes off very well in its all out over the top fights. the music works to having all the bands feel like they are trying to make something of themselves. With this movies being a bit of a flop in the cinema it is a shame because this really is one that should be watched with fun action comedy all the way well worth a watch.
Best quote Kim ‘ We are Sex Bob-Omb! And we’re here to watch Scott Pilgrim Kick You teeth in!’
Favourite character Wallace has all the best one-liners
Stand out performance Kieran Culkin mostly because it’s a different character to what you would be used to coming from him.
Best moment Most of the fight scenes really
Worst Moment Mainly that fact it will be aimed more towards the arcade gaming generation.
