Another Great Adventure for the Gang

"Scooby fans have been fortunate through the years to have good people (Warner Bros & Hanna & Barbera) take care of Scooby Doo. When I first saw the title to this movie, I was worried that Scooby might be burned with a over hyped technical movie to match the times. Boy was I
wrong! This latest and greatest adventure is another well written and original story. This adventure may be as close to the original atmosphere of the TV original series than the previous full length animated movies. The storyline seems to have a bit more comedy worked into it. Well my kids love it and I have seen it twice now and enjoyed it. I have said it before and will say it again "Scooby is an American icon".Stephen"
You Creepy Thingee!

"Okay, this is the first Scooby DVD purchase I had reservations about making. I'm a cartoon artist, and I buy animation for myself, because it's a medium that's dear to me. That said I was very afraid this would be a 75 min. commercial for the Scooby video game, and therefore only watchable for someone under 5. Instead it was wonderful! The story has a great deal of action, without being really scary. So those of you with more impressionable children should have no problem this time. In that respect, this release is more like Alien Invaders. Unlike Alien Invaders all the characters are given a chance at center stage, and the interplay between them continues to be built upon. (Including the Daphne and Freddie relationship, which is sweet.) Everyone gets a moment to shine, and a chance to be the butt of a joke. So, no matter which character is your favorite, you get a chance to cheer and laugh for them. This outing isn't as musical as the first ones, but the fun, humor, and character balance are so good that it makes up for that. The new voice of Daphne (Grey Delisle) is terrific, and fits in quite well. I've always liked BJ Ward as Velma, and I think Scott Innes is good as Scooby and Shaggy. Frank Welker, who has voiced Freddie since the original series, seems to especially be having fun in the new movies, and has a couple of my favorite moments in this one. The plot is pretty straight forward, the gang are to have a video game made after them by an old friend. When they arrive, everyone has been scared by the appearance of a nasty virus that's escaped from the game. While trying to get the baddie trapped back in the game, the gang is "accidentally" transported into the game with him. Now the only way to escape is to beat all ten levels and the Phantom Virus! At the same time they need to figure out who programmed him (which you will probably know from Level 1, but it makes it easier for the little ones to figure out.) Along the way they have to outwit all manner of video game baddies, and in the final level they meet their computer game alter egos. Not to mention villians from the old Scooby Doo Show. This time they aren't programmed to be unmasked! Also, be sure to remember that when the credits roll there is still more to come. There is a special bit at the end where each of the gang tells his or her favorite part about making the movie. Those are hilarious! The extras contain a terrific "making of" documentary. The best of those to date. Watch it after the movie."
Best scooby movie yet

"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."
Pretty good for Scooby fans

"I thought this title was pretty good, though it wasn't as good as Zombie Island, which is still the best of the new movies they've been putting out. The humor in this film is great. And it's a throwback to the episodes. If you like Scooby-Doo, check this title out. I think you'll like it."
