Having been subject to both of these films every other day thanks to my daughter being bought the double box- set, (thanks, auntie Michele!!) I feel I can review with authority!
This one feels much more gelled together than the first film. The characters fit in a lot better with their surroundings- Coolsville seems just as cartoony and two- dimensional as the main characters, but in a good way. It means there can be big creepy old buildings and abandoned factories and the like for the Gang to poke about in! The addition of Seth Green is, for me, always welcome; his character is Velma's rather geeky-but-hot-underneath love interest. Well, I think he's hot... But he and the other new characters are a lot more likeable than the characters in the first film, like Shaggy's blonde girlfriend-cum-monster, who never really appealed. I didn't care if she copped a branch in the face in the first film, but I didn't want Seth Green to turn out to be the baddie in this one! You'll have to watch it to find out if he is. It's strictly another no- brainer like the last film, and Scooby is still rather flat and charmless, but the kids will love it and you may find yourself laughing along too.

I originally went to see this movie because Sarah Michelle Gellar stars in it as Daphne. But I discovered that overall this is a fun, comic, family film that I think the majority of people can appreciate. It's well worth a look and in all honestly is immensely enjoyable.

Raja Gosnell has proved that sequels can be better than the first in this side-splitting special effects galore family comedy of the year!
Mystery Inc are back to return to their hometown of Coolsville to face every single villain they caught and this time there's no costumes!
After seeing what Gosnell did with the first Scooby film I didn't think I'd enjoy this but I was wrong. Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini did yet another fantastic Shaggy and Velma and of course not forgetting the CGI supermutt Scooby Doo.
What spoilt it for the first and kind of did again for the sequel was the change in Fred and Daphne's character even though Freddie Prinze Jr got out of his wooden state and Sara Michelle Gellar did great anyway. I used to watch the cartoon series and Daphne always was the damsel in distress but now she is a kung fu fighting chick even though I didn't complain seeing Gellar going Buffy style on some ghouls and Fred always used to be the cool but smart guy of the gang but now he is just dumb and too cool which spoilt the first but was slightly improved this time.
This film is mainly for kids but there were a few jokes for the adults mainly the relationship brewing between Velma and the museum curator (Seth Green).
With a straightforward storyline, top of the range special effects and great acting all around with the support of Green, Alicia Silverstone, Peter Boyle and a cameo from the Big Brovaz nothing can stop the kids from watching this film again and again! Scooby Doo has done it again!

It's a big night in Coolsville. A museum is opening and its main exhibit is a tribute to the Mysteries, Inc. gang featuring the costumes of many of the creatures they've defeated over the years. Naturally, everyone is on hand for the opening. But things don't go smoothly. Much to everyone's shock, the Pterodactyl Ghost comes to life and starts flying around the museum. When Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Scooby-Doo try to stop it, they make a mess of the museum.

Fred (Freddie Prinz, Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), and Velma (Linda Cardellini) immediately spring into action trying to figure out how and why the monster came to life. The obvious suspect is Old Man Wickles (Peter Boyle), a former foe just released from jail.

When more of their former foes come to life, the townspeople turn against the gang. Can they stop the monsters, stay alive, and solve the mystery?

I haven't seen many of the cartoon episodes, but this movie actually made me wish I had. These monsters were creepy yet cool at the same time. Overall, the story was much better then the original movie with several viable suspects. Shaggy and Scooby attempt to shed their goofy image and gather actual clues, but on the whole, the gang even works together this time. Once again, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini are the standouts of the cast, while Seth Green and Alicia Silverstone are great additions this time around.

This sequel should appeal more to fans of the series. While forgettable, it's also good for a couple hours entertainment.

If you watched the first movie or the scooby doo cartoon series on which this is based, you'll know what to expect. Monsters and ghouls with a human face behind them. This movie is more of the same. That's not to say it's bad, it's not. It's quite entertaining and has some unexpected twists and turns. What lets it down is the amount of padding in between the action.

It's still worth a watch. Good family entertainment.

Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed just fails to beat the first movie but is still an excellent film.
All the gang at Mystery Inc are back in their home-town: Coolsville, with a new mystery to solve. I'd say that fans of the Scooby-Doo cartoon would enjoy this film more because of the return of old villains such as the 'Black-Knight', 'Evil Clown', 'Candy Floss Monster' and many others. It was entertaining being able to recognise the monsters by their cartoon traits such as 'powers' and personalities.
In terms of action, Scooby Doo 2 is superb. The interaction between the human characters and the computer generated monsters is brilliant. It is impossible to tell that they were put in after the actors had finished the scene by talking to thin-air! The film is full of humour and has an overall good plot.
Altogether, this is a wonderful family film and the DVD is packed with entertaining, comical and interesting special features.
