Scooby Doo on Zombie Island
[] Buy posters from this movie
by MP Bartley

"Look, it doesn't have Prinze Jr in. That's 3 stars in my book."
3 stars

Yes, I'm in my mid 20's and yes I've watched this, but no I'm not weird. I was looking after my girlfriend's 4 year old kid and strangely enough this wasn't half bad. Hell, it's better than Matthew Lillard farting next to a giant CGI turd.

I won't even bother with the plot. We all know what the plot is for any Scooby-Doo adventure, all you need to know is the location (funnily enough, Zombie Island in this case) and that the gang run around, Scooby and Shaggy eat stuff and then those pesky, meddling kids save the day.

What can I say? The animation is serviceable, the 4 year old loved it and enjoyed pointing out what's happening ("Look! Daphne's floating! Look! Scooby's mouth's on fire!") and heck I'll admit it, for a Scooby-Doo cartoon around the 70 minute mark I wasn't bored and it is kinda creepy (even trippy at the end - Fred melting?).

Hardly a recommendation I know and there are a lot of far better ways to spend your time, but there are also a lot worse things you could do to entertain the kids. Like the 'Scooby-Doo' movie, 'The Cat in the Hat' or anything with the Olsen twins.

Not a cynical cash-in but hardly a Pixar treat either...meh, it'll do to fill in an hour on the school holidays.
