I grew up watching Scooby Doo as a kid, so I was looking forward to taking a trip down memory lane. But that trip didn’t start off good. The first half of this movie was hard to watch. Fortunately it got a little better toward the end.
I would give the first half of this movie a D-. It was that painful to watch. I’d give the second half a B-. So let’s split the difference and give this movie an overall C. Which is, give or take, about what I would have expected.
The central message of the movie revolves around people growing into new roles, and the stress that can put on friendships. It’s a common problem at any age that friends want the best for each other, but at the same time it’s hard to deal with changes to a relationship.
The theme may be a little advanced for young children, who haven’t dealt with this issue yet. But one would hope that this movie can serve as a template for them in the future when they do experience something like this.
It’s clear that WB is aiming to recreate the Scoobyverse. I’m not going to spoil it for you, but there’s a character cameo that really made me smile. When I first saw the character I thought, “No way… Is that?” And then sure enough, it was.
Then when you watch the credits, its clear that WB intends to use this movie to launch a whole slew of new movies. I just hope they’re a little better than this one.
