best scooby movie yet,
This review is from: Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase (Snap Case) (DVD)My criteria for Scooby shows are: the original gang, no Scrappy, no "real" monsters, and no real terror -- too silly and funny to be genuinely scary. That is, as much like the original series as possible. The biggest downfall of the new Scooby movies is that in every one at least some monsters are real, and some like "Witch's Ghost" and "Zombie Island" try to be genuinely scary. On that score, "Cyber Chase" is helped by the fact that most of the "real" monsters are "real" only inside the computer game. Given the real monsters, "Cyber Chase" gets my vote as the best (i.e. better than "Alien Invaders," "Witch's Ghost," and "Zombie Island" -- though "Alien Invaders" ranks second in my book). The movie is FUNNY, especially seeing the gang meet their "old" cyber-selves. Each member of the gang gets a chance to shine, which is nice. The music sequences are good: catchy tunes and funny. It's also fun to see the "old" gang drawn like in the original series without whites or pupils in their eyes.
The movie is sort of a "Scooby Doo meets Tron", and the allusions to "Tron" are amusing.
My 3 1/2 year old son loves Scooby Doo, and especially this movie. It's good enough that I don't mind watching it with him, and it's not scary so as frighten him, which is important to me.
