Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Reviews
No anyways, hassu sekoitus elokuvaa, videopelejä ja sarjakuvaa. Hauska. Tykkäsin. Taistelukohtauksissa nukahdan aina, mutta ei haittaa. Tämä oli niin erikoinen ja eri tavalla tehty audiovisuaalinen iloittelu, että ansaitsee neljä tähteä, puoli enemmän kuin viimeksi.
Ihanan erilainen leffa, joka oli hauskasti tehty, tÃ¤ysin surrealistinen, sarjakuvamaisilla kirjoitetuilla Ã¤Ã¤nitehosteilla tÃ¤ydennetty hulvattelu. Leffassa oli potentiaalia vaikka mihin, siksi ihmettelenkin, miksi se kuitenkin jÃ¤tti vÃ¤hÃ¤n kylmÃ¤ksi.Jotenkin en ihan pÃ¤Ã¤ssyt tunnelmaan mukaan, vaikka kovasti olisin halunnut tykÃ¤tÃ¤ tÃ¤stÃ¤ leffasta enemmÃ¤nkin.
Visually this movie is gaming heaven with its Street Fighter-like visuals (I love how the villains turn into quarters once they lose). The script is also very fast paced and funny. I enjoyed these characters and the villains were pretty cool, even though some of them felt a little rushed and/or forced.
The 7 Evil Ex's are kind of a mixed bag. Some of them are great like I love the Vegan one in particular. Some of them are either too ridiculous or, like I mentioned, rushed in their part. Regardless, I really want to read the graphic novel now. Because this was one visual treat.
The cast is very good, with stars such as Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Brie Larson playing main characters. The writing is hilarious, and there are many funny lines and references. The director, Edgar Wright, actually co-wrote the 2015 superhero flick Ant-Man, which is another favorite of mine. For a two-hour-long film, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World does an outstanding job balancing all of the characters and subplots that there are, which is something that the mediocre Spider-Man 3 had trouble doing. Scott Pilgrim does it so well, giving those minor characters a the perfect amount of screen time so you can invest in them a bit more.
The action sequences are so well done. The filmmakers really got creative with them. Each fight between Scott and an ex is stylized to appear like a video game boss battle, complete with hit combos, 1-ups, K.O's, and sound effects (with the word appearing on screen). It's pure geek awesomeness, with each scene being very well choreographed as well. There's even a scene that's a take on Seinfeld, with the music, laugh track, all of it. It's these moments of levity that really make the film unique, when compared to other comic book movies.
If you're looking for a funny, awesome comic book adaptation, rent Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World from your local DVD rental store. If you just want a movie, well...rent Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World from your local DVD rental store. It's the best comic book movie of all time, and mixes the action and romance genres perfectly.
Well other than the vegan powered ex-boyfriend whose weakness is half-and-half milk, and get deveganized by vegan police after he drinks it.
Yeah, that just about explains it.
As my first Edgar Wright film, I had a lot of expectations for this movie; I was expecting a fast-paced, action packed comedy, and I certainly got that. The movie has the kind of style that you either love it or hate it, love it for how playful and goofy it is, or hate it for being too bright and intense. I personally adore the style and detail in this movie, with Edgar Wright's attention to detail visible in every easter egg of the movie(if you don't know what I'm talking about, just try to find the numbers hidden based on the evil ex Scott is fighting). And that is something I think all movies should strive towards.
The acting is great, with Michael Cera selling the slacker role very well. The cinematography and special effects are dazzling, with fast paced action and comedy working side by side. The music is great, full of energy to compliment what's happening onscreen. And the writing is awesome, chock full of jokes and great dialogue.
