Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.

With videogame-inspired imagery, this romantic comedy martial arts rock opera is a cult classic in the making. Michael Cera achieves his apotheosis as slacker Scott Pilgrim, and the rest of the cast is great too. One of my top five favorite films!

Graphic novel, a hit video game with awesome synthesized music, and now the movie.

Scott Pilgrim is a great movie that combines hilarious drama with flashy video-game-like effects and animation into something that is just plain fun to watch, regardless of age. The protagonist is such an absolute dweeb, that his consistent awkwardness makes the movie incredibly entertaining, and the love triangle actually works too.
And the fight scenes, oh my goodness, the fight scenes. Not only is there flow, but the video-game-like effects make it feel like it was based off of a really good anime.
Overall, this is probably the most hilariously campy, yet legitimately incredible movie I have seen. I give it a 5 out of 5 and recommend it to all ages.

A film with a fairly avant garde approach, and I am sure gamers and the young crowd would enjoy it greatly. Unfortunately I am neither, so didn't get much out of it.

Fans of the graphic novels will be overjoyed at this adaptation. If you're not into the comic "feel" of geek culture this will probably be an incredibly bizarre watch. The soundtrack nails the vibe and the actors are a perfect match for their counterparts.

Movie nailed the graphic novel series perfectly with right actors, director & the author actually the scriptwriter. Bonus features was a blast.

This is my second time seeing this movie and it was just as brilliant as I remembered. Fair warning though: geeks only! I showed this to my sister and she was very bored and confused. I think the movie was far too meta for her and all the geeky reference humor went over her head.

I loved it though, it's the most amazing love story to graphic novels that I've ever seen. Scott was actually kinda a huge dick in it but they call him out on it and his character arc is about learning how to treat women (and himself) with respect. I dig it.

One thing that sorta bugged me was the jokes(?) about Ramona's bicurious "phase." I feel like that aspect of the movie made bisexuality seem like a joke that only immature people experiment with.

Watching the alt. ending on the DVD I think I weirdly liked it better than the actual ending? I can see why they changed it but I felt more satisfied by the alt. ending because it destroyed the manic-pixie-dream-girl cliche...

I love the comic; and frankly, didn't see how it could be realized on film -- totally pulled it off! Smart, Funny and Completely entertaining!

Its a comedy action comic brought to life. Very well done by Edgar Wright of Shaun of the dead and hot fuzz fame. Very funny and I was unfamiliar with the comic.
