Synopsis: This rather fun mashup sees Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc. as they look into the disappearance of the Justice League.
When daring reporter Lois Lane and photographer Jimmy Olsen get scared off by a weird phantom when investigating the disappearance of Superman and The Justice League. Lois suggests that Jimmy should call his girlfriend in to investigate. Jimmy’s phone call brings Mystery Inc. to town as well as their faithful food-obsessed hound Scooby-Doo. As Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby drive into Metropolis they are taken back by how the city has become so lawless as they get greeted by Giganta, The Joker, Harley Quinn, and Soloman Grundy who are creating mayhem because there is no justice league to keep them in line.
Soon enough. The gang finds themselves at the offices of the Daily Planet where Lois confuses them about interns until Jimmy reveals that Daphne is his girlfriend, which is news to Daphne who says they were just friends at summer camp where they were both bullied for being ginger kids. Pushing past all the introductions. Lois tells the gang about what happened to her and Jimmy when they visited the Hall of Justice and thus the story kicks into high gear with Lex Luther, Mercy Graves and of course, Krypto aka Superdog joining in on the fun.
The Voice Acting
All the actors in this do a great job with the roles they are given. Frank Welker is great as Scooby and is just as convincing with the voice as the much-loved Don Messick was in the animated series of the late 60s and early 70s. Matthew Lillard reprises Shaggy, which is a role he has been playing since the 2002 Scooby-Doo feature film. Kate Micucci is solid as Thelma while Grey Griffin channels her inner Wonder Woman as Daphne.
In terms of villains. Charles Halford does his share of moustache twirling as Lex Luther while Victoria Grace lurks for the most part as the overlooked Mercy Graves who I felt was the most underwritten character in this show.
In short. All the actors did really strong work in their respective roles.
I rented this film because I was looking for a bit of fun and was intrigued to see how a mashup of Scooby-Doo and Justice League would work. The answer to that is it works with very little input from the Justice League and lots of input from Lex Luther, who turned out to be a comedy gold mine throughout much of the film.
Overall. This is a fun film that takes the fun elements from DC Comics and blends them into a Scooby-Doo adventure, which made my inner 8-year-old very, very happy.
