Just as we are attentive to the premieres of the streaming platform, we must pay attention to what the service leaves behind. Last chance to see this classic ‘geek’.
Last days to enjoy Netflix on Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. Edgar Wright’s film quickly became a hit in geek culture, applauded in equal measure by critics, audiences, and most importantly, lovers of the graphic novel on which it is based. It is a very fun adventure with a plot and style of the most original and On November 21, he leaves the streaming platform.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the world tells the story of Scott – played by Michael Cera – the bassist of a band who falls in love with a girl named Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). To get there, he will have to pass several tests, like a video game, starring Ramona’s ex-partners.
The film was released in 2010, six years after the graphic novel began publication. Wright was interested in the project even before the comic saw the light. They handed him a copy during the promotion of Zombies Party and he saw it so “fresh and unique” that he wanted to adapt it right away. As the director stated, he had no intention of making a realistic film and was inspired by the work of director Mario Bava.
Edgar Wright achieved a very particular style that received many compliments but, precisely, it is what those who do not defend his proposal criticize the most. While the critic of Time Out Dave Calhoun assures that “it could have been a noisy disaster”, but is loaded with “heart, which makes it something fun and unique”, there are those who think that its greatest weakness is that it does not give up.
This is what happens to Rodolfo Sánchez in his criticism for SensaCine, where he points out that “the action does not give any respite and the accumulation of situations can sometimes overwhelm”. However, he is one of the few with this opinion. The vast majority appreciate a tape as original as this one. “It’s geek heaven, a mix of comics, computer games, grunge rock and drama., all faster and more fun than anything done before. “
In its cast, in addition to Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, you will find the great performances of two Avengers before they became world famous. On one side is Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, a popular actor and skateboarder who is one of Ramona’s first exes to fall. There’s also Brie Larson playing Envy Adams, who was dating Scott.
If you like Edgar Wright’s style – the same as Zombies Party, Welcome to the end of the world O Baby Driver-, you have grown up defeating villains in video games and you never hide your most geek part, you have to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the world before it leaves the streaming platform on November 21. If you’ve already seen it or haven’t had time to watch it, enjoy other action movies on Netflix.
