As if a haunt isn't bad enough, then imagine a prehistoric haunt...
I watched "Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur" with my seven year old son, as he enjoys the adventures of Scooby-Doo and the gang quite a lot. I grew up with these cartoons, so I know basically every story and how it will turn out, as they all follow the same formula.
With that being said, don't get me wrong, because the storyline in "Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur" was actually quite good, albeit it still follows the same blueprint for a Scooby-Doo story; that being the gang coming across a mystery, being chased about, finding clues, and then unveiling the people behind it all. Yep, another one of those. But the storyline was actually still fun and enjoyable.
You pretty much know what you are getting when you sit down to watch an animated movie such as "Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur", or any other Scooby-Doo movie for that matter.
The voice acting in the movie was quite good, as it usually is in the Scooby-Doo animated movies. And it is always a treat to have Frank Welker and Matthew Lillard to do the voices for Shaggy and Scooby-Doo.
If you enjoy the Scooby-Doo cartoons and animated movies, then you will most definitely also like "Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur". It is an enjoyable animated movie, but still does suffer from that repetitive build up of storyline used time and time again. But this is actually an enjoyable movie for fans of Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Gang.
