A film that aged well
on 3 March 2018
I pretty much grew up with this film, so nostalgia bias is to be expected.
A rather unique, somewhat more adult take on the classic cartoon and previous animated films.
An interesting plot which sees the old gang brought back together by a quirky resort owner (Atkinson, in a brilliant performance) to investigate mysterious goings on at his island resort.
The cartoon gang are brought to life in believable performances by decent acting, as is Scooby Doo in, what was for the time and has aged well, top notch CGI.
Some truly humorous interactions between Shaggy and Scooby Doo throughout. (nearly 16 years on and the "fart off" still prompts a chuckle)
A film worth introducing new fans to, just a shame that the sequel wasn't as good.
