I saw this film because I have friends that loved it, and I was intrigued... and that was how I stayed n the end also....Intrigued!!!
Scott Pilgrim is a graphical novel by the Canadian Bryan Lee O'Malley. The story is a bit surreal, but well... it's supposed to be...Scott is a lazy guy whose only thing in his life is playing guitar in the band " Sex Bob-omb". He soon falls in love with an american girl named Ramona Flowers, but to have her he has to defeat her 7 ex-boyfriends...did I say they were all evil, yes they are, and have powers, strange ones obviously :P
Michael Cera, yes that guy of "Juno", and "Arrested Development" is Scott, the perfect choice for this character since his face is of a procrastinating, lazy and depressed guy, but also youngish. I can't say much to try not to spoil, but the film is quite amusing when we see that all boundaries are off, this not a real story, but at a same time does not have the pretence of being an heroic film so that's refreshing and entertaining and it amuses enough to stick on your mind. If you think this is for geeks you're wrong!!!
I can't help but to praise the minor roles of Kieran Culkin, Anna Kendrick,Brandon Routh, and Jason Schwartzman that made the film more credible and amazing.
