So, about expectations: If you are looking for in-depth character building and motivation, this is not the film for you. Of course, if you've seen any ad for this film at all, you should already know not to expect that. But if you like fun! action! fights! Michael Cera! and rock music! then this is the film for you. It includes video game-like sequences, including a game-style Universal logo and opening tune at the start, cartoon violence, and stylized graphic novel elements. It also includes some impeccable grammar, including grammar humor. Oh, grammar humor, how I love you!
Evil Ex 3: "We have unfinished business, I and he".For some further thoughts on the movie, I defer to Linda Holmes from NPR, who wrote 'Scott Pilgrim' Versus the Unfortunate Tendency to Review the Audience. To which I add, "What she said."
Scott Pilgrim: "He and me."
Evil Ex 3: "Don't you talk to me about grammar."
