When the teens are serving their detention in the library and the weather storm begins, at one point Velma says "unusual 'climactic' anomaly" referring to the impending weather storm. In fact Velma should have said "unusual 'climatic' anomaly. Her use of the adjective is in error as "climactic" refers to the word "climax" whereas "climatic" would be the adjective to use when referring to "climate." See more »

I give this a 7, because the acting is decent, the story is fairly original, and it's Scooby Doo! Now, for those who liked the first 2 live-action films, this is a cartoon network film, so while they are all Scooby movies, they have no other relationship to one another. That's not to say it has no faults. It's fairly campy, though not much, and it does stray from it's origins a bit. Scooby fans will know what I mean, once they see this. It does have good action, and CGI effects are well done. The story moves along without getting bogged down by trying to flesh out the characters. I think Hayley Kiyoko did an awesome job as Velma. It's hard to believe she's only 17. I recommend this one as a family fun film. Kids will love it, and adults will enjoy it as just as much.
