Visually daring, ingenuous and extremely entertaining, Scott Pilgrim is virtually flawless.

An interesting statement on modern youths detachment from actual human emotions through the advent of technology...

Not only one of the funniest movies of the summer; its utilization of over-the-top special effects unintentionally puts it up there in the action-blockbuster category it so archly parodies.

[It's] the funniest, most furiously action packed film of the year; one certain to be beloved by all the boys and girls who share the same passions and foibles as its foolish hero (myself included).

Video games taught a generation to fight for what you want

Some might see it as a great hipster parable, a postmodern epic for the Nintendo generation; I think it's simply a triumph of dizzying cinematic style, and it never misses a beat.

Maybe with a different lead actor and about 20 minutes of running time chopped from it, I might have enjoyed it more. Instead I laughed through parts, but was never emotionally drawn into any of it.

Fitfully entertaining and sometimes brilliantly silly — just not really engaging, and occasionally objectionable.

I can only say that where some see shallowness, I saw a witty interplay of surfaces and style.

This movie is like the entirety of American youth culture crammed into a single package: It's about love, alienation, video games, comic books, chord-grinding indie/punk rock, texting, dead-end jobs and evil ex-boyfriends.

This one's geek heaven, a mash-up of comic books, computer games, grunge rock and slacker drama, all a little quicker and droller than anything of the kind before.

One of the more audacious and creatively conceived movies of the year though, at 32, I felt a bit too old for it.

A film you either love or hate. I didn't love it.

Some of us always knew playing video games was cool. Now, thanks to Scott Pilgrim, everyone else does too.

The bombardment lasts for almost two hours and by the end of the film, we feel almost as exhausted as the characters.
Christopher Tookey

It's the old romcom story - boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy fights to win back girl. But it's steeped in pop culture, especially video games, rock and comic strips.

It understands perfectly the lunacy of being of love -- how, at the same time, it clarifies and deludes, ennobles and fells us.

If ever a film was guaranteed not to disappoint its target audience, it was surely Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.

It could have been a noisy, flashy mess, but luckily it's got heart, which makes it feel fun and unique, and more like a lo-fi, endearing mess instead.

An original, funny and clever film that's an assault on the senses.
