Reviews for Scoob! ( ) 720p

IMDB: 6.4 / 10

Beware This is NOT Scooby-doo!

For those hoping to watch a fun origin story of scooby doo or maybe a fun giant epic mystery adventure film, unfortunately this film misses that mark. What you should expect to see is another average CGI animated cliche and extremely bland and predictable super hero film. This film tried to accomplish too much during its runtime, that is ends up accomplishing nothing!

I'm really sad right now. As a massive fan of scooby-doo, this was SUCH a dissappointment.

Not funny, not creative, not unique, riddled with cliches, this review isn't going to be coherent, I just finished watching this, and I can't handle this. This film didn't even reference the most BASIC scooby doo tropes, like Velma constantly searching for her glasses, or Fred and his traps. Disgusting, unbelievably formulaic, I understand that they would have to remove some of the 'classic' scooby doo storylines/tropes/etc, but they completely changed everything about these characters. I have grown up with Scooby doo, and this is the worst media to ever come out of the franchise. The animation wasn't even great, character design was so inconsistent, no cohesive moral to the film. I'm honestly not even going to go into more detail on this. It doesn't deserve my attention. I'm really sad. This review might have spelling mistakes, and I don't even care about my vocabulary, I'm tired. I hate this. You've ruined my nostalgia. Getting rid of Frank Welker as Freds voice for absolutely no reason other then to have Zac Efron there. I'm sorry this is a really poor review, I just need to rant.

Scrappy movie

This film has a fun idea around it, but unfortunately it is terribly and genetically executed . Lots of fun ideas present in this film, the storyline and delivery of those ideas just creates a big colorful mess of a film.

Cute and Nostalgic For the First 15

This movie dies after the first 15 minutes. It starts and it's super cute and actually resembles Scooby-Doo. But then it just goes off the rails. It has stupid cameos, pop culture nonsense like dabbing?? It was so basic. The plot was just nonsense and boring.

I don't love the animation style they look like they are made from each plastic and the voice acting is kinda off putting because for the most part non of the characters sound like any incarnation of them from the past which is strange as some of the old cast members spoke about wanting to return and were disappointed not to be asked.

My other complaint is there want really a main monster to fight against it seemed to randomly pop up in the end. It just didn't seem like Scooby-Doo


This film is subpar at best. Not very entertaining unless you are 5 and under. The character cameos are from super old cartoons. The Scooby doo plot theme is missing here. This film is such a MESS! Skip it! Wait for redbox or just watch an old scoobydoo movie on TV!


This movie is just random and bizarre , makes great eye candy for small children, but that's about it! No storyline , no great performances , animation looked cheap and plastic . I have seen WAYY BETTER ANIMATED MOVIES! Skip the high prices on this one!

No good!

This movie is just a series of events, with really no cohesion at all. I guess this is what happens when they just want to make something to collect easy revenue. It's just unfortunate that they writers didn't really care about the movie.

Straight to VOD quality

This felt like a straight to VOD B-list film you can find on Netflix or Amazon Prime, not a high quality Theatrical Release that it initially set out to be. Honestly, the first 15-20 minutes were the best part of this film and we got a really good origin story of the entire gang. It just spirals out of control and into absurdity from there, in a semi self-imploding kind of way. I'm not sure what the screenwriters had in mind when they set out to write this. Feels like 3 minds have been cramped into this film, giving rise to this incoherent mess that could have been much better.

Movie Reviewers NOTE... (If you review movies.. read this)

Good lord.. some people rate this a 10??!!! If THIS is a 10 and there is nothing higher, I think we're all in trouble. Come on people!! If you review a movie, be REASONABLE. If you give it a TEN, you are saying that it is as good as movies like Oliver!, Gone With The Wind, The Sound of Music.. and movies that are 8's, 9's, and 10's. So this is as good or better than The Jungle Book (original), or the classic Disney stuff?? So this is as good or better than Toy Story, Shrek, or Monsters Inc.Same holds true for the 1's. Look.. it's not very good, but is it "Toxic Avenger" bad? Probably not. Can we at least give movies a REALISTIC review and rating?? I see these 10's and think there may be NO hope for humanity if people think THIS is as good as it gets!

An Identity Crisis for Scooby-Doo

I can see what they were going for by crossing over with other Hanna-Barbera characters, but in doing so, I think that they stripped away a lot of what makes Scooby-Doo so great. I was always drawn in by Mystery Inc's skepticism to all things supernatural and as a child, I felt that I could dip my toe into something spooky but the humour and adventure would balance it all out. Even in this film, snippets of the gang's spooky hijinks were the highlight for me and without that - I feel that there is no Scooby-Doo. In saying that, the animation was beautiful, I do love these characters and I think that Zac Efron was a perfect casting choice for Fred. I feel thankful that this has gone straight to streaming rather than a wide theatrical release, as I can only hope that a new generation finds a better entry point into Scooby-Doo rather than this film.

Stick to the D2V Animated Films. This is far from fun and the real Scooby Doo

I had so many expectations. Scoob! sets on a completely different track from the original stories, which I would welcome if it was better written. The jokes are unfunny, the movie feels unenthusiastic just like Gina Rodriguez's voice for Velma. Stick to the Direct-to-Video animated films. They're clearly superior.

It's OK...but could have been so much more.

The first 15 mins of this are great. Why they couldn't have just kept this as an origin story of how the gang met and started solving mysteries is beyond me. Instead the story spirals off into a million directions and is filled with tons of poorly executed pop culture references. The animation is stellar, but the plot diminishes this one a lot. I'm not expecting it to be just like the TV series, but my kids got more excited at the beginning of the movie and started to lose interest as it went on. Sometimes I wonder if these screenwriters working on kids movies actually have kids. So disappointing and a big missed opportunity.

Scooby Doo, from the makers of Trolls

Did not have the classic Scooby Vibe. Trying to hard to be hip. Mystery Incorporated cartoon was so much better.

CGI Garbage!!

Not the Scooby-Doo we all know and love. This is a "spin-off" of the franchise / series. Very flashy CGI garbage! The plot is EXTREMELY predictable, even for young kids. Everything about this film is just bland and boring. Not very interesting movie. Maybe VERY young kids will find some interest in the bright colors and characters goofiness. Don't recommend buying the "home video release" of this ! Not worth the price ! Wait for this to be on rental, or just watch a free scooby-doo episode or movie online for free !!

Super cute!!!

As a long time fan of Scooby doo in the early 80s and can 100% get behind this with my kids watching it. They have modernized it and it keeps the original charm. I found myself laughing to jokes the kids didn't quite get. The writers did an amazing job keeping it entertaining for all.

Scoob! A blast from the past

Everyone will compare this film to its 1969 original... but that's not a fair comparison. It was a different time back then.No if you ever watched the old Hanna Barbera cartoons then you will find this film enjoyable. Does it deserve an Oscar... I think not. However, it is a fun film that anyone will enjoy if you just accept it for what it is.It has a cool storyline and mixes several teams with Mystery Inc.Would I watch it again... yes, I would. If it came out on video, would I buy it? I might. It's a fun film.

The usual sausage.

Another CGI 'product' that chucks out all of the charm of the original in favour of contemporary post-modern gibberish and self-referential jokes that do nothing but make all of the characters smug and unlikeable. I wish this was a cartoon. I wish it had a spooky mystery at its heart. I wish it was Scooby Doo.

Where is the real scooby doo?

I realize that Scoob is basically a kids' cartoon generic movie. I realize that I am long past the target audience's age. However, I grew up a fan of the original Scooby Doo cartoon. I was 4 years-old when the cartoon originally aired and I have fond memories of those Saturday mornings. The people responsible for making these new movies have taken most of what made that show good and thrown it out the window. The ghosts and monsters weren't real. There was always a rational explanation behind everything that went on. Part of the fun was trying to wrap my 4 year-old brain around how the bad guys were doing their evil deeds. But a movie based in anything approaching reality wouldn't work as a big, over-bloated, CGI mess like SCOOB. It's unreal, it's loud, and it leaves nothing to the imagination. The film consistently makes fun of itself in that I'm-smarter-than-you, self-referential way that I find so annoying. It's a shame to me that young kids today will not grow-up understanding the charm of the original Scooby Doo.

A generic 21st century kids movie disguised as a Scooby Doo movie.

I was never really the biggest fan of Scooby Doo. I watched some epispodes, but I never really gravitated to that show and characters. But even with watching so little episodes, you can tell it is very different from the cartoon. It doesn't feel like Scooby Doo. There aren't any mysteries of haunted houses. This is a superhero movie wth Scooby Doo characters.

The villian is actually pretty good. He has a clear motivation and you understand what's he doing and why he's doing it. He can also be funny which is perfect for a kids movie like this.

The voice actors did a good job. The stand-outs for me are Mark Whalberg, Jason Isaacs and Frank Welker.

The movie is really funny and a lot of the jokes land well. Especially with the character of Fred. Whenever he's on screen he gives that funny vibe and you can't help it but to laugh whenever he tells a joke.

The biggest problem for me is that this is just a generic kids movie. It follows the same formula as all kids movies. Set-up a relationship with two characters, seperate them and make them reconcile, earn the power of friendship and save the day. On top of that, add a bunch of pop songs. The movie is afraid to take risks and shake things up. Because that, it doesn't add anything new to the genre, it doesn't add anything new to the Scooby Doo characters and it's just forgetable. If i'm in a mood for Scooby Doo, I won't watch this. I will watch the original cartoon. If I'm in a mood for a 21st century kids movie, I won't watch this. I will just go watch the Lego Movie. My point is that this movie doesn't stand out in any way.

I conslusion, I don't think that a generic kids movie is worth 20 dollars.

4/10 you can skip it, you're not missing much.


I've seen every scooby-doo movie out there and all the Tv series . This is the worst. I was really looking forward for this for months and I'm so glad I didn't waste my time at the theaters for it. If you're a true Scooby-Doo fan you'll know it doesn't have any of the elements like the other ones.
