Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed

Mystery Inc is going to have the best day of their life. The people of Coolsville are celebrating their accomplishments and the museum is having a collection of all the villains they’ve caught on display. However, when the show opens, a masked foe appears and one of the costumes suddenly becomes alive. The gang can’t do much and immediately gets crushed by the media. It’s clear that the masked villain has a grudge against Mystery Inc and he’s certainly succeeding in damaging their reputation with the help of the press. Meanwhile, the gang finds out that a Monster Machine has been made and that the worst monsters Mystery Inc has ever taken on are coming to life and taking over town…

Sound and Vision:
On the technical side we certainly can’t complain with decent image and sound quality. Grain, compression errors, damage/dirt or edge enhancement aren’t present and the interaction with the digital Scooby is nicely done.

The soundtrack is dynamic and a good addition to the atmosphere with lots of use of special effects coming through the surround speakers and supported by some good bass from the subwoofer.

Extras:
– Deleted Scenes
– Dancing Dog, True Ghoul Hollywood Story: feature on how the dancind scenes were shot with the help of real actors and computer generated images
– Scooby Doo Monsters Unleashed Challenge: game
– Triple Threat : game
– Music Video Clip
– Trailer

Conclusion:
While the original Scooby Doo movie still was interesting to watch for adults, Scooby Doo 2 is more of the same and that doesn’t upgrade the overall quality. A perfect movie for kids but the humour is below par and adults will find it quite boring to be honest. That this dvd is targeted towards kids is quite obvious as also the extra’s are more for children and less interesting for adults

Our Score:
5.0
