Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Reviews

Page 3 of 13
Margot Harrison
Seven Days

A consistently entertaining parody of contemporary cultural foibles that are apparently too marginal to be satirized in comedies that actually make money.

Full Review Source: Seven Days | Original Score: 7/10

Financial Times

Scott Pilgrim tries so hard to be loved that it ends up very trying indeed.

Full Review Source: Financial Times | Original Score: 2/5

News of the World

It's a string of scenes, it's a blur of faces, it's a heaving great two-hour maelstrom of noise and punching. But it's not a proper movie.

Matt Risley
Sky Movies

An instant zeitgeist classic and proud bearer of yet another Wright-icised genre, as undoubtedly the best King-Kong-Bob-Omb-Rom-Com you're ever likely to see.

Matthew Turner

Hugely enjoyable, frequently funny action-pic-slash-romcom that perfectly recreates the manga meets video games vibe of the comics...

Helen OHara
Empire Magazine

It's heartfelt, hilarious and a highly satisfying adaptation of the book. You don't have to be a geek to adore it; you just have to remember being young.

Anton Bitel
Eye for Film

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is endearingly relatable precisely because it celebrates the ordinary, focusing far more on the foibles and frailties of the players than on the invincible avatars of a game.

Tarantino, without the extraneous dialogue.

Kevin A. Ranson

The level-up, super fun, dance-dance, pop culture, max-combo, rock-n-roll romance video game film of, well, forever.

Bruce Bennett
Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Nerd Nirvana! Think Napoleon Dynamite on Red Bull. Inventive, quirky, and occasionally very funny.

David Michael Brown
Empire Magazine Australasia

In a cinematic battlefield full of Inceptions and Expendables, Scott Pilgrim vs The World takes on all comers and kicks ass. One of the best films of the year so far.

Scott Pilgrim plays its own tune.

Also versus coherence, versus maturation, versus real emotion...

Aisle Seat

An energetic ode to youthful preoccupations, as well as a fun 21st century romance.

Full Review Source: Aisle Seat | Original Score: 3.5/4

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

Sure, it's visually whizzy and often very funny, but filmmaker Wright loses the story in the scuffle.

leaves no mediated stone unturned and tosses anything and everything into its conceptual blender with an infectious wild abandon

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a film full of sound and fury signifying WTF. It's slick shtik.

Laramie Movie Scope

What it does have is a very smart script and a tremendous amount of visual flair.

Jason Di Rosso
MovieTime, ABC Radio National

For those out of the loop, or too far removed from these characters' headspace, the inventiveness of the film's execution alone is not enough.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

For all its videogame references, this -- like Wright's previous films -- is at heart a genre satire, reinventing the John Hughes 1980s teen dramedy for the plugged-in, post-postmodern mashup generation.
