Samurai Scooby...
6 October 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Scooby-Doo! And the Samurai Sword" is actually one of the better of the Scooby-Doo! movies that I have seen so far. Why? Well, sure it does follow the blueprint of the franchise to every letter, but it does differentiate itself somewhat. And also because the storyline was good and a tad better than the usual generic story lines seen in the franchise.

If you are just the least bit familiar with Scooby-Doo! then you are already also familiar with "Scooby-Doo! And the Samurai Sword", no doubt about it. So I will not delve too deep into the storyline. But briefly summarized, it is about the Scooby gang venturing to Japan where they stumble upon the mystery of the black samurai.

As with almost all other Scooby-Doo stories, then the story contains a fair amount of humor and action. But the setting of modern Japan infused with feudal Japan samurai just made the story all the more interesting.

The animation was good, and as was the voice acting. The two most crucial points to an animated movie. And with those two at the right place, "Scooby-Doo! And the Samurai Sword" was on a good path.

I was thoroughly entertained by this movie, and think it is definitely a well-worthy addition to the Scooby-Doo franchise. "Scooby-Doo! And the Samurai Sword" has entertainment for everyone in the family, be it young or old.
