When and where?: Now available on HBO Max.
A romantic comedy full of evil ex-boyfriends and rock music, this is how the film can be defined “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”But there is more to this story than that.
The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, created by Bryan Lee O’Malley, which introduces us to a young man in his twenties named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), who is a bass player in a rock band. One day he meets Ramona Flowers (Mary-Elizabeth Winstead) and falls in love with her, so he decides to end his newly begun relationship with Knives Chau (Ellen Wong).
What Scott did not expect is that in order to have a relationship with Ramona, he will have to face her seven evil ex-boyfriends who have supernatural powers. Will he make it?
The Edgar Wright-directed film (“Last night in Soho”) is full of pop culture references, for example to video games, so at times it feels like you’re at one with Scott getting lives and points in a fight. ; In addition, visually the edition of the film plays with the aesthetics of the comic.
In this 2010 film, faces that are quite well known today in the world of superheroes appear: the Chris Evans (Captain America) and Brie Larson (Captain Marvel).
Scott Pilgrim becomes a kind of superhero who fights to win the love of the girl he is in love with, so if you like stories full of action, fights (with fists, swords or lightsabers) and a touch of humor, it is a good option for the weekend.
