The most disappointed I've ever been with a Scooby-Doo film
Going into the movie, I had hopes that it would be equally as good to the first one, or maybe at least good enough for me to say I enjoyed watching it.
-Reading some of the other reviews, I'm genuinely surprised that someone would even present the idea that this sequel is "better" than the original; you can get some laughs out of it from the main characters being their overall lovable selves, but anything you enjoyed from the first one, you aren't going to experience them in this (unless you count the expedition dump of flashbacks).
-There's not a single shred of atmosphere throughout the movie, not to mention the choice of chase-scene music that had no correlation to the scenario.
-Personally, I prefer the animation style of the original style; to me, it made everything more enticing and interesting to look at, generally making the movie flow better as well. This doesn't mean that I detest the current style, however with growing up with the cartoon and loving the 90's Zombie Island, it's just another part of the film that didn't appeal to me; an example being that the faces of the werecats made me think of the faces of Gremlins, with the squashed features and massive ears..
This movie, overall, is as if the writers presented an idea of: What if we just took the first movie, but instead of everything being real for a change, we just present the same scenario except everything isn't real.
My opinion- Don't touch something that's already good enough.
This sequel wasn't better, it wasn't on par, and to me barely reached a level of mediocre.
