Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a busy, often brilliant movie, appealing to all gamers and those who love their films off-center.

Michael Cera plays Scott with depth and relentless dedication, as he vies for the affection of the mysterious Ramona, played-well by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. One problem, to get the girl, Scott, in true video game fashion, must defeat a screen-load of ex-boyfriends. There is not a dull or wasted moment in this film.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is rated PG-13 and is wonderfully written and directed by Edgar Wright. He directed Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. His latest is deliriously fun and filled with so many inside jokes for gamers, you'll either pay attention or be bored.

Scott Pilgrim obviously isn't for everyone, but it remains an enlightened piece of film-making that will thrill it's target audience.
