Veronica Mars Movie Review
At the demand of super fans, super sleuth Veronica Mars is back, but this time on the big screen! Check out Kidzworld's Veronica Mars Movie Review to find out more!
For those not in-the-know, Veronica Mars was a long-running TV show about a high school girl, Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) who just couldn't help being on the case after her best friend is murdered and her father is removed as the town's sheriff. One thing leads to another and Veronica just can't help but crack every case in the small, rich town of Neptune, California. A full ten years after the show first started, fans raised a record-breaking $5, 702, 153 on Kickstarter to get this movie made, and it looks like they got all the answers they were looking for - and undoubtedly got some new fans on the Veronica Mars bandwagon as well. BTW, Veronica Mars fans are called Marshmallows - how cute is that?
The film takes place ten years after high school graduation and Veronica has turned legitimate and is about to sign on as an in-house investigator at an NYC law firm - but although she's long-since kicked the Neptune dust off her heels she finds herself dragged back to her small town in time for her ten year high school reunion when her ex Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), a rich bad boy with a bitter side who turned his life around by joining the Navy, asks her to put her private eye mind when his pop star wife (and former Veronica's former classmate) is found electrocuted in a bathtub. Veronica finds herself unable to stay away from one last chance to solve the case in her hometown and salvage Logan's reputation.
The Bottom Line
If you're a Veronica Mars fan then this movie was made for you - it's essentially a very long episode of the show featuring all the regulars and getting to the heart of what every fan wants to know...what did the characters do with their lives after the show! This of course makes sense since the movie was funded by fans, in a way, they wrote it themselves by their requests alone! For those new to the Veronica Mars fanclub, the movie maintains the cheeky film noir elements of the show, such as Veronica's inner monoluge and ongoing critique of her hometown. With the pretty much the entire original cast on board, the acting is flawless, and the characters are as fresh and interesting as they were when the show first debuted. Kristen Bell plays the most likeable tough girl TV has ever seen. All in all Veronica Mars has a great cast, is a fun comeback with snappy dialogue and best of all, it's just a good ol' fashioned mystery!
