This was a bit too mundane and generic for my liking...
14 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Haven't the vampire theme been used enough in the Scooby-Doo universe? Or maybe it is just me...

Regardless, "Scooby-Doo! And the Legend of the Vampire" turned out to be just another assembly line produced Scooby-Doo movie. You know, the ones that follow the very original Hanna-Barbera formula to the point. So you know what will happen here before it happens, and you know exactly how the movie will end.

With that being said, aren't all Scooby-Doo movies essentially so? Yes, you are right. However, some of the animated movies do manage to distinct themselves from the rest of them, either with the storyline or with the "monsters" that the gang is chasing (and being chased by) after.

This time the Mystery Gang has traveled to Australia where they investigate the mysterious disappearances at a music festival. Here they come face to face with the grim Yowie Yahoo creature.

Right, nothing new or innovative here. It just runs a bit too much on autopilot here for this 2003 animated movie.

However, I will say that I did find some amusement in the musicians and their costumes. But it was hardly enough to make up for the rest of the mundane experience that the animated movie turned out to be for me.

The voice acting is very important for an animated movie to work with the audience, and "Scooby-Doo! And the Legend of the Vampire" had some good enough talents, although some of the more familiar voices were missing. It is always pleasing to have the voice of Frank Welker in a Scooby-Doo animated movie.

My six year old son enjoyed "Scooby-Doo! And the Legend of the Vampire" well enough. I, however, found it to be lacking the fun and energy of many of the other Scooby-Doo animated movies. And as such, then my final rating of "Scooby-Doo! And the Legend of the Vampire" is a mediocre five out of ten stars.
