This review is completely biased and is based on personal preferences. But if you are like me who are unsure what to watch because the film industry has a lot to offer or who likes movies that are authentic or just love understated funny statements. Then, you are more likely to benefit from this review.
The movie was compressed with action and comedy. The film offered amusements almost with every scene or actions in the later part of the movie. There were unique style shots which I have never seen before, and probably so with you. It adapted a video game attitude, which made it unique. Enemies are reduced to coins when defeated. A character can have weapons out of nowhere. You can be revived if you get a +1 UP. In result it brought cool visual effects. I have no reason not to like the cinematography.
The characters portrayed their parts really well.(I bet you will like the melancholic attitude of Kim.) They all had an understated comical acts, which best suited for Michael Cera. The dosage of actions was severe. Despite a love theme plot, it didn’t have heavy dramatic emotion. Nevertheless, the whole film was quite good. It was not too much or too less, just enough to let you finish the movie and felt relieved that you didn’t burn your money to nothing.
Some people may not like the movie because of the contemporary approach on the film. It contains scenes, almost all of them, have video game jargons. It has also a dry monotonous humor, which for me brings color to the whole sitcom. In addition, some may not like the teenage pilgrim like confusion and identity crisis.
The film was an adaptation of a comic series (with the same title). It refused to reveal the characters’ back stories due to time constraints. But that doesn’t made the Scott Pilgrim vs the World less enjoyable.
