Scooby and the gang face their most challenging mystery ever: a plot to unleash the ghost dog Cerberus upon the world. As they race to stop this dogpocalypse, the gang discovers that Scooby has an epic destiny greater than anyone imagined.
Scooby-Doo is the hero of his own story in "SCOOB!," the first full-length animated Scooby-Doo adventure, which reveals how he and his best friend Shaggy became two of the world's most beloved crime busters. The story takes us back to where it all began when a young Scooby and Shaggy first meet and team up with Velma, Daphne, and Fred to launch Mystery Incorporated.Written by
This is third third film after The Lion King (2019) and Christopher Robin (2018) where an original voice actor from the original film or series reprises his role as the main character while the others characters are recast by new voice actors. This is also the first animated film and not live action film to do so. See more »
In the flashback scene, when the gang is chased by the ghost in the haunted house, the ghost appears to be flying by his own as there is no string holding him. But before they realize he's fake, a string suddenly appears. See more »
A generic 21st century kids movie disguised as a Scooby Doo movie.
I was never really the biggest fan of Scooby Doo. I watched some epispodes, but I never really gravitated to that show and characters. But even with watching so little episodes, you can tell it is very different from the cartoon. It doesn't feel like Scooby Doo. There aren't any mysteries of haunted houses. This is a superhero movie wth Scooby Doo characters.
The villian is actually pretty good. He has a clear motivation and you understand what's he doing and why he's doing it. He can also be funny which is perfect for a kids movie like this.
The voice actors did a good job. The stand-outs for me are Mark Whalberg, Jason Isaacs and Frank Welker.
The movie is really funny and a lot of the jokes land well. Especially with the character of Fred. Whenever he's on screen he gives that funny vibe and you can't help it but to laugh whenever he tells a joke.
The biggest problem for me is that this is just a generic kids movie. It follows the same formula as all kids movies. Set-up a relationship with two characters, seperate them and make them reconcile, earn the power of friendship and save the day. On top of that, add a bunch of pop songs. The movie is afraid to take risks and shake things up. Because that, it doesn't add anything new to the genre, it doesn't add anything new to the Scooby Doo characters and it's just forgetable. If i'm in a mood for Scooby Doo, I won't watch this. I will watch the original cartoon. If I'm in a mood for a 21st century kids movie, I won't watch this. I will just go watch the Lego Movie. My point is that this movie doesn't stand out in any way.
I conslusion, I don't think that a generic kids movie is worth 20 dollars.
4/10 you can skip it, you're not missing much.
