I only discovered the tv series after it had been cancelled but watched all three seasons back to back in no more than 2 weeks. It kept me entertained at university when I should have been writing assignments so I was delighted when a movie was announced. For me the wait was only 5years but it was long enough. The movie was good the characters still the same well written people that I remembered and the plot was engaging. In my opinion they need to make another movie!

My girlfriend is a fan of the show, I had never watched an episode in my life but both of us enjoyed Veronica Mars very much. A lot of jokes would have went over my head without having a fan explain them to me but it was a clever stand alone piece which seemed like a love letter to fans and served as a sassy mystery story to non fans.

Being intrigued by the obsessive fandom of VM, I spent the best part of the last few weeks bingeing on the three series in preparation for the film. I loved the series, the drama and the noir. I am a fan.
With this in mind and with the trailer, my expectations were high and for the most part fulfilled in the mystery part of the story. The noir was good.
However, considering the epic love story, crossing continents and time, with bloodshed and lives ruined, the reunion with Logan felt flat. Largely due to Jason Dohring not getting enough time on screen. Logan is always at his best with quips and acid remarks and even though 10 years might have passed in Neptune, I can't believe that he'd turn into such a goody two shoes guy with not a single funny/inappropriate thing to say for himself. Not too enamoured with his uniform either as it makes him look dorky.
Finally, given the relatively short running time, with an extra 10/15 minutes, we could have had a bit more on the key relationships including Logan, Wallace and Mac. I want to know what these people've been doing all this time. And Piz as well. Just a few more minutes would have given so much depth. It's not a TV show people, you need to get the emotional development into a single story.
The highlight was Ryan Hansen as Dick, true to his douche roots.

All in all, not bad, but left me leaving flat.

I'll start with a confession - I've never watched any Veronica Mars before, not a single episode of the tv series that preceded this film. I read a review that said no prior knowledge was required to enjoy the film so I gave it a go and that theory is almost correct. It was good fun and i did enjoy it but I had a feeling there was just a little something missing, there's various characters here who clearly have a lot of history together but it's history I'm oblivious to.

Plot wise it's pretty simple - a short opening monologue tells us who Veronica Mars is (an ex teen sleuth) who returns to her old home town of Neptune to have a crack at one more mystery as her ex is the prime suspect in a murder case. From here we follow Veronica as she works the case and interacts (for better or worse) with old acquaintances from Neptune.

The mystery ties into another, older, mystery and the plot takes the odd twist and turn as things move along, red herrings fly and suspects come and go. It's fun stuff, the acting is good all round (especially from the excellent Kristen Bell) the script is sharp and witty and it kept me guessing at least. There is the slight drawback I mentioned before and I'd say fans of the show can probably add at least a star to my rating.

So many quotes so little time... In short it was worth the 6 year wait! The show was fantastic when it was on TV and the magic is still there in force. Does it feel like an extended episode rather than a movie? Yes. Do I care. No. In fact I liked the fact Rob Thomas grounded the show back in it's muddy, film noir roots and clearly wrote every line, every direction, for the fans that so lovingly funded it. The appreciation of the stars getting another shot at VM is clearly tangible on screen and it is great to watch a bunch of people who so clearly like each other reigniting a decade old chemistry and slipping so effortlessly back into the characters we knew and loved. Here's hoping for a sequel, or even better (in my opinion) a new series! Clearly my love for this movie was epic... But what can I say, I'm a marshmallow! (I can only apologise- I got somewhat carried away there!)

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Mar 2014
Format: DVD
Veronica MARS looks like VENUS, but is a down to EARTH girl who is from cliche filled NEPTUNE where no one drives a MERCURY. Veronica narrates the last dozen years of her life so we can catch up, but continues her "Sex in the City: style of narration well into the film. She is set to work for a law firm in NYC and has a great boyfriend. When someone from her "nearly everyone is rich and famous" class is killed, and the main suspect is her ex-boyfriend. Veronica returns to resume her role as an investigator in the case.

This was a made for TV formulaic script, and wasn't done well. If you have evidence to clear your client, you present it to the DA and not the local sheriff who doesn't like you. I also don't understand why she never returned the calls or answered the phone from her new employer. She could explain what she was doing, if they were willing to wait, fine, if not, also fine. But to simply ignore the calls without giving them the respect and decency to provide them with information to make a decision is immature and irresponsible.

What channel has the "Columbo" reruns?

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex. no nudity.
