Review | Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Us Rating: **

Opens: Friday 8/13

Part classic rom-com, part comic-book goof, this movie is not nearly as cool as it wants to be. Michael Cera, in usual timid-hipster mode, plays a lovelorn rocker who falls for a delivery girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). But before he can date her, he must defeat her seven evil exes, superhero style. With its video game-like effects and loud bass, the film is strictly for the Comic-Con crowd.
