Scott Pilgrim is not what you expect. It's not what the marketing made you expect. It's better than that. Funnier, sweeter, with eye-popping visuals and characters who feel so flawed and real they could be your own brother, sister, or friend.

Scott Pilgrim VS The World is a great action comedy with an interesting look at romance and teen culture; the humorous tone of the film masks a much darker look at romance.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is refreshing, unique, wildly entertaining and consistently funny. I haven't had this much fun while watching a movie in a long, long time.

While there have been numerous attempts by Hollywood to cash in on the popularity of video games, none of those films has felt true to the artistic and creative spirit of those games until now. This one gets it right.

Full of fresh, sharp touches and nonchalantly brash performances, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World consistently hits the sweet spot.
April 12, 2013
It's fresh, funny, inventive and unique.

Like the special effects, the characters are sketched out in tiresome cinematic shorthand, as if to reassure the viewer that this joyride really isn't worth thinking too hard about.

An unrelenting torrent of affectionate but biting music-scene satire, old-school Nintendo references, and cartoony depictions of post-adolescent love, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a delight.

Frankly, us geeks have never had it so good: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is modern cinema at its most exciting, and it belongs to us.

Edgar Wright and his crew had a daunting task in adapting this great material, but they were able to mix it together just right for the big screen, and have ultimately made one of the best films of the year.
