"Scott Pilgrim" devotes itself so firmly to re-creating the look of O'Malley's saga that it forces and fumbles the feel, full of (indie-rock) sound and (kung-fu) fury, (emotionally) signifying nothing.
Ignores the very charisma of the source material to mold something one-note and glossy...clip reel of console carnage, more tuned into surface delights than treating O'Malley's material with the sincerity and breadth it deserves.
Scott Pilgrim is a young guy who has a serious identity crisis. And so does this movie. Which can't seem to decide whether it's a flippant sketchy teen angst weepie, or your basic flamboyant movietoon..
