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.

Please, for the love of all that is unholy, stay away from this if you like Scooby Doo...
14 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I sat down to watch this movie with my 8 year old son, whom is a big fan of Scooby Doo and the Mystery Gang.

Let's just say that he left after about 15 minutes of suffering through the torture method that is known as "Daphne & Velma", while I managed to endure 45 minutes of this garbage.

Right, well there was so many things wrong with this.

First, the movie was lacking a proper storyline and seemed like director Suzi Yoonessi was given no limitations and just put together a series of random segments here and there. Sarah Jeffery, playing Daphne, looked nothing like the cartoon character in any way, except for their hair color, and it didn't help that she was stumbling through what were supposed to pass as being acting. Sarah Gilman, playing Velma, fared little better in the acting department, but at least they made her look very much like the cartoon character.

The characters in the movie were one-dimensional cardboard cut out figures that offered absolutely nothing to the storyline. And they were so irrelevant that you didn't even bother about them in any way.

"Daphne & Velma" was also hindered by an abysmal set of dialogue. Wow, it was such a pain to listen to.

According to the synopsis, then this movie was supposed to take place before the gang all got together to form the Mystery Gang. Right, well plausible enough. But no! Then the movie should be set in the time according to prior to the first Scooby Doo episode, which it clearly was not if you look at all the gadgets and technology in the movie. That was just a downright horrible flaw to the movie. Sure, they attempted to appeal to the audience today, but good luck getting the youngsters to raise their heads from their phones and tablets long enough to get any interest in this derailed movie project.

This movie was a swing and an atrocious miss. Not going to bother coming back to this. In fact, I will pretend I never saw those God awful 44 minutes and not let it taint my view on the legacy of Scooby Doo and the Mystery Gang.
