Things that worked
Honestly, the best part about the movie was Frank Welker, who voiced Scooby-Doo. He has certainly brought the character to life with his funny voice.
The animation department also deserves appreciation. All the environments were fresh and new. They’ve done a fabulous job in recreating the 3-D models of the main characters. I also loved the 3-D models of robots and thought they were spot-on.
Things that didn’t work
First of all, the story was very predictable, in my opinion. You could easily guess what’s going to happen and how it’s going to end. This predictability factor made the film boring and dull.
Also, the lack of tension or suspense to the story took a toll on the film’s engagement factor and made it less appealing.
The film felt rushed, and I thought they could have had a lot more scenes into developing the bond between the characters. This certainly would have made the film entertaining and engaging to watch.
The writing seemed cliched and childish, even for an animation movie. The antagonist’s intentions were weak, and I felt the script didn’t justify his actions. I liked the film’s moral but felt it to be undeserved.
Verdict – (2/5)
Overall, Scoob! is a below-average animation movie that doesn’t have much to offer.
