Saw the movie yesterday, and as such, probably should have said something earlier. But anyway...
Anyhow, I was a bit disappointed that they cut down on the characterization of Envy, and the backstory with her and Todd, as well as the only two meaningful things Lynette does, and the Ramona v. Envy fight, as well as the triumphant return of THE BOYS!...and Crash.
I also kinda disliked how they changed the Roxy fight, but to their credit, they did move some parts of the R v. E fight to the R+S v. R fight.
But enough complaining from me. Considering that they had to squeeze 6 volumes of
comic graphic novel
which, I think, were 100+ pages each into about two hours, they did a very good job! It was kinda like a comic plus a video game put into a movie. I think the music was pretty sweet. Those demon hipster chicks were creepy, I must say, but that song
made me double over in laughter.
The evil exes were very hammy
, even the ones who didn't talk! Well, okay, not Gideon so much, but that's to be expected. Also, the captions used throughout the film were pretty amusing. As for the characters, Scott was geeky, Ramona was deliciously snarky, Kim...uh, didn't do very much, sadly
, Knives was delightfully crazy and woobieriffic near the end, and Gideon was an utter bastard. I also loved the scene near the end when Scott and Knives work in tandem as a callback to the Ninja Ninja Revolution game to defeat Gideon.
Although, that left me feeling very
sad for poor Knives at the end. ;_; Another thing I liked was one of the things they changed, when moving the scenes from the comic with Envy around. Somehow, I find it a lot more funny when Ramona knees Gideon in the crotch
than when Envy did the same to Todd
. Also, I want Scott's Hat. And did anyone think The Princess Bride
when Scott offered Todd the cup of coffee with soymilk?
I absolutely loved the fight with the twins, and the epic special effects used there. Also, Wallace, ILU so bad.
All in all, I enjoyed it, and I'd totally go see it again if I got the chance.
