The story depicts a young man named Scott Pilgrim, the bass guitarist in the nad “Sex Bob-omb” who dates Chinese schooler. Later he meets with a mysterious girl in his dream, Ramona Flowers, then he falls in love with her in real life. But Romano has 7 deadly exes who Scott must defeat before he can actually live a happy relationship with Ramona.

The film is based on a graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. And it’s very game/comic like with all the sound, special effects, and everything which makes it highly entertaining to watch.

A bit disappoint on the story, I know that it’s based on graphic novel so there ain’t nothing much that Edgar Wright could do about it. It’s just his previous film, Hot Fuzz is superb, and I kinda expect for more.
