Entertaining if flawed
1 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As people may know already I am a huge fan of Scooby Doo, the original(and best) show Scooby Doo! Where Are You? and The Scooby Doo Show being two of many shows to shape my childhood. The various incarnations after have ranged from surprisingly good(Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated) to terrible(Shaggy and Scooby Doo! Get a Clue).

And I do like the movies a great deal, especially Witch's Ghost, Goblin King and Zombie Island. Alongside Goblin King and Abracadabra Doo, Samurai Sword, even with the flaws, is one of Scooby's better recent efforts.

The movie is too short, the plot rather haphazard and meandering and the music rather uninspired and rushed in places.

Complaints aside, the animation is great. The colours and backgrounds have a colourful and fluid quality to them, and the character designs are thankfully not at all crude. The writing and jokes are amusing, and the samurai fighting is well choreographed and maintains interest. The characters, lead and support, are likable and fun and the voice acting is excellent with nobody really I would consider bad.

In conclusion, an entertaining movie. 7/10 Bethany Cox
