Precisely drawn hipster farce whose rich characters all have inner lives, motivations and tortuous backstories

Seven Days
August 26, 2010
A consistently entertaining parody of contemporary cultural foibles that are apparently too marginal to be satirized in comedies that actually make money.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Scott Pilgrim tries so hard to be loved that it ends up very trying indeed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

August 26, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Hugely enjoyable, frequently funny action-pic-slash-romcom that perfectly recreates the manga meets video games vibe of the comics...
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

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.

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.

The level-up, super fun, dance-dance, pop culture, max-combo, rock-n-roll romance video game film of, well, forever.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0

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

August 22, 2010
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.

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

Aisle Seat
August 21, 2010
An energetic ode to youthful preoccupations, as well as a fun 21st century romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall
August 21, 2010
Sure, it's visually whizzy and often very funny, but filmmaker Wright loses the story in the scuffle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

leaves no mediated stone unturned and tosses anything and everything into its conceptual blender with an infectious wild abandon
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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

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

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.
