Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a unique film that will surprise most audiences because it is unlike most films. Director Edgar Wright brings this graphic novel series to life, literally with straight-faced humor and some old school video game graphics to capture the comic book’s fun and imaginative story line.

Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), is a 22 year-old slacker, who falls in love with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). After spending the night with her, he discovers he must defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends if he wants to continue dating her.

The first time I watched the film I enjoyed all the bells and whistles, but the second time I viewed it I discovered all the different layers operating beneath the surface. The dialogue is brilliant and it really captures the voice of many young people today trying to figure out relationships and love. Scott Pilgrim scores a lot points in this film.
