Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: Edgar Wright’s third film, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Bryan Lee O’Malley, follows 22 year old Scott Pilgrim (played by Michael Cera) who becomes acquainted with the intriguing and visually stunning Ramona Flowers (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead). However, Scott learns that in order to be with the girl of his dreams, he must defeat her seven evil exes’, who persevere to vanquish Scott.
Scott Pilgrim is a brilliant film that manages to completely honor its source material while also adding in new elements to make the story itself more interesting. The plot is a great deal of fun because, at its core, it’s a well told love story while also being an exciting movie that’s loaded with clever references and extremely well shot action scenes.
The action scenes in Scott Pilgrim are superior to just about any other action scene in any other comic book movie because, not only are they superb and fun to watch, but also remain perfectly in step with their source material. Edgar Wright brings his usual frenetic visual style to the film which makes it feel like a real life videogame. It’s the combination of wry characterization and overabundant visual splendor by Wright that make Scott Pilgrim enormously entertaining and a film that perfectly captured the comic book medium onto film.
With that being said, on the road from the page to the screen, inevitably some things got changed. How much was changed? Well, the folks over at CineFix decided to walk you through every alteration.
