ADAM WEST as the BLUE FALCON

It's a superhero convention and you can see some of your favorites mulling around. It's not the greatest Scooby movie but it's fun.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There is real humor and heart to the formulaic stories that will hook viewers, but children sensitive to frights and suspense may find this one a bit too scary. (Mr. Hyde's henchbats and hound are freaky and wreak chaos on the convention.) Scooby-Doo movies can be an acquired taste for parents who weren't childhood fans of the campy animated franchise, but after repeated screenings with adoring kids, the series should grow on otherwise wary adults.

Adults familiar with Comic-Con in San Diego will find the ongoing geek jokes particularly amusing. Kids who adore superheroes -- or even the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes on Sponge-Bob -- should appreciate the humor but may not understand the disgruntled older comic-book actor. Parents who remember the "original" of any superhero, however, will find that aspect of the movie hilarious.
