My ranking- 8/10

Well this is a 2010 release but my sole reason to give its review is that I never got chance to watch it. Scott pilgrim vs. the World is not a commercial successful movie but as it usually hapeens in Hollywood good movies(for example-fight club,Donnie darko) are regularly ignored at box office and become smash hit in home videos and follows the cult following afterwards.Its adapted from a brilliant graphic novel as nowadays Hollywood got a good scripts from it(Example-300,sin city, The spirit,watchmen etc.)

Review-

Scott pilgrim(Michael cera) is a guy living in Canadian city Toronto and part of a rock band which consists of two guys and a girl named Kim,who also was the ex girlfriend of scott.He shares his room with a gay guy wallace(Kieran Culkin) and he have acted good as it seems he speaks from his eyes.He sms everything to scott’s sister even while sleeping,it was fun to watch himas he constantly goes on changing his partners.Totally no vulgarity scenes just seems very funny

Scott was just dumped up by her Girlfriend and felt upset and so get into a relationship with a high school Chinese girl.Just keep your logic aside as it seems they live on some parallel earth and it was fun.Don’t think that it’s just a non-sense story as screenplay is powerpacked,action scenes r superb and quite funny.

Now coming back on story and its main plot which is scott sees a girl with odd hair colored girl in her dream and meet Romana (Elzabeth Winstead ) which is the same girl he had seen in her dream,With some funny circumstances Scott dates Romana resulting in a grim consequences for former as he came to know that he will have to face romona’s 7 ex boyfriends termed as evil exes .At this point fun starts taking place as soon as Scott faces 1st evil ex while performing with his band film starts having a superb comic situations,actions which are really high quality and clear.He ll face 7 exes and outwit them through his courage and intelligence.Even there is a girl whom romana dated ,quite hilarious. The last contender Giddeon who had arranged all the exes turns out to be a main villain and climax fighting scene is impressive as it seems we are watching video game as Scott gets extra life and earn points,revivals which makes film more interesting.

BOTTOMLINE- A worth watch movie takes us in comic world,seems like a video game(it have videoGame by same name)where villains have supernatural powers,A world full of bizarre people and worth watching thing about this film is unpredicatibility.Comic sense and direction have different approach, cinematography itself seems as character as use of distance,lights ,speed is great.Music is pretty awesome as it got a touch of early video game sounds in movie especially in fighting sequence.Its a musical movie too but never seems like overdone.

For those who love movies,give it a try and who have seen it just watch it again.
