Storyline

Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright and optimistic Daphne and whip-smart and analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online - until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma's school, Ridge Valley High, an incredible tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school's benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear - only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

Daphne Blake (Sarah Jeffery) lives a charmed globe-trotting life with her parents. She's excited to finally meet her internet friend Velma Dinkley (Sarah Gilman) in real life as she starts her school, Ridge Valley High run by tech mogul Tobias Bloom. On the other hand, Velma is apprehensive about Daphne's arrival as she's investigates a conspiracy at the school. Daphne is befriended by senior classmate Carol (Vanessa Marano).

I'm not going to say that this is misguided. I'm not saying that this is unnecessary. This is definitely not heresy. It's only Scooby Doo. The franchise has done worst. All I'm concerned with is whether this can stand on its own. Is it any good? It's fine for awhile until it stops being fine. It's probably a mistake to not have a tall redhead as Daphne. A bad wig is not as fitting. Velma is fine. The best part is the friendship. It may be a silly idea but the computerized couch is inventive and fun. The movie is perfectly acceptable up to that point although I would change the principal. Once it goes into the secret tunnel, the movie loses all its steam. The non-descript office building does not help at all. The third act seems to run out of money as all the ideas are executed poorly. It's a fun idea to do the eyes in the darkness but it's does so badly. The fight with the spider robots is stupid. The bad guy has to be the caretaker with an unmasking although the 26 joke is funny. It's the only fun bit in a bad third act. It's also extremely short at around 70 minutes which indicates running out of steam towards the end. This may be an interesting idea but an adult has to be in the room doing the work.
