Clue A Movie Mystery Adventure DVD Review and #Giveaway


        Throughout the years I have had some wonderful opportunities to review tons of movies from a variety of studios.  Over this time I have gotten to know what to expect from each "brand".  One of those has been Hasbro Studios, however, this next review I never saw coming from them.

        When I hear Hasbro, I think of My little Ponies and Littlest Pet Shop.  I of course also think of games of different varieties.  When I was asked to review the newest DVD released on July 15th, 2014 from Hasbro Studios, Clue A Movie Mystery Adventure, I thought of something completely different than what arrived.


        The synopsis says "Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure features the beloved characters inspired by the world’s most famous crime-solving board game, Clue. Follow six very different young sleuths as they embark on a mysterious adventure beyond their imaginations. As they work as a team to discover hidden treasures, decipher cryptic knowledge, and uncover a secret society, they learn they have more in common than they thought."

        Dane was actually the one quite interested in this film.  He watched it the moment it arrived and I caught quite a few bits and pieces of it.  I had assumed this was going to be old style film, kind of classic murder mystery.  I was wrong as the movie had newer (younger) actors as well as more of a modern day twist on the classic game.

        Dane not only watched this several times right away, but he made it a movie request that every one he pretty much knows watch it as well.  He really enjoyed the story line as well as the younger characters and it was more of an older kids movie, so he enjoyed feeling a bit like his big sister.

Suggested Retail Pricing: $12.99
Recommendation:  I thought it was cute and Dane definitely enjoyed it.  I'd be interested to see if Alana enjoys it when she returns home.  This way I would have a better idea of an age group.  I think for $13 it was worth the purchase if you have a child interested in these types of mystery stories.

  1. I always loved playing the game so this sounds interesting! I was usually very good at figuring out the game, and I was often accused of cheating (this happened to me a lot with games growing up). I never cheated, I was just good at board games!

  5. My family and I absolutely love Clue! We play one of our many version of the board games every other weekend. We even have a VHS game and love the movie as well! It is hard for me to pick out just one memory, but I believe this DVD could create many new great memories with my family.
