I was in Wal-Mart the other day when I noticed a Scooby Doo movie was on sale for $4.88, so naturally I had to get it. I remember when I was a kid I loved Scooby Doo so I couldn't pass on this at such a low price. The film is about Scooby and the gang going to visit a friend of there's that is creating a game based after their mysteries. From what I can tell it was the forth movie released once they started doing these. There is also a video game based on this one for Playstation and Game Boy Advanced.
After arriving there they find that a cyber ghost called the Phantom Virus is terrorizing the place so naturally they decide to try and catch him. The thing is, they get zapped into the computer game which some how can transfer real things in and out of it by using a gun looking thing. Once in the game they have to travel threw ten levels seeking Scooby snacks in each to go to the next.
To be honest the idea is great but it was executed poorly, if it would have been done correctly it could have been as good as the Scooby shows I watched growing up. They even brought back some villains from the old classic episodes like the Creeper, so the potential was there. I guess the fault rests on the shoulders of writer Mark Turosz and director Jim Stenstrum, they did pretty good I guess but could have done better. In all this was a decent film but compared to the ones I grew up watching this doesn't compare, but the animation is good as always for these movies.
