A few hit and miss moments, but I still loved it,
This review is from: Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster (DVD)
Ok loved Scooby Doo and Monsters Unleashed. I was a bit scared of Mystery Begins but it turned out to be quite fun. There just hasn't been anything Scooby that I haven't liked.
I was really hyped up for this movie, so much that we made it a point to get together at my house to watch the premier (say what you want but when you get to an age like me where you are trying to relive your childhood as much as possible before you REALLY get old, you appreciate these things lol) As a whole I think this movie was good, it flows from the last movie and it ends with resolution while leaving an obvious opening for another movie (apparently the cast has a contract for 3 movies so fingers crossed).
I knew it would only be a matter of time before romance became a major subject of these younger series and here it is. Shaggy is crushing on Velma. Thank you for finally getting this out there! You can't run around 2 girls and 2 guys solving mysteries without at least being interested once in your colleagues and I have always thought it was funny that Shaggy and Velma didn't have something going on. Well, this movie explains why they don't. Good job filling in some cracks. You also see a glimpse of Fred with the vintage look. Funny and hopefully that is going to lead up to the classic look.
Lake Monster is very childish. Fun, but still harder to get into than any other Scooby movie. Great for young kids but mature viewers like me, eh, maybe you should get into a 3rd grade mindset first. Just a suggestion. Someone commented in a review that the movie was boring. While to me it did not seem near as boring as you made it out to be, I totally feel where you are coming from. There is a lot of down time and yes, its easy to kind of drift off.
The movie is not even out so I don't want to go into a lot of plot detail (and anyone that knows Scooby Doo shouldn't need a summary anyways) Monsters, mystery, chase. I think this is something you will want to pick up for a little light childish humor. The actors are what have made this series anyways, so I can understand a little poor writing, they still pull it off oh so well.
