The film is an obvious labor of love for all concerned, and the good times are infectious.

The uninitiated may not go for the all-too-convenient crime solving, melodramatic love triangle, and playful banter, but cultists will find all the show's pleasures intact.

Top Critic

Veronica herself is such a breath of fresh air as a strong female character: smart, secure, resourceful, loyal, funny and not the slightest bit chickish.

This isn't just a nostalgia trip. Almost a decade has passed, and the characters aren't just older, they've changed in recognizable and gratifying ways.

Somehow, miraculously, the Veronica Mars movie is definitely not bad. It's pretty damn good, actually.

All in all the movie delivers what you expect but not in the way that you expect it, which makes it work as both a long-delayed fourth chapter in Veronica's story and a rare big-screen version of a TV show ...

Audience Reviews for Veronica Mars

First and foremost will the Veronica Mars Movie satisfy the fans of the tv series? Absolutely. Will it satisfy non-fans? Yes. The Veronica Mars is everything a true fan can want- a return to form, sharp dialogue mixed with wit and strong developed characters. The Veronica Mars movie finally gets to embrace its noir tones and darker themes. The mystery is thriving and the love triangle finally has a resolution. I can't find a fault in the movie but hey I guess I'm a marshmallow.

Failed to strike a chord with me. I've not watched the series, let alone be its fan, and have no idea if it affects the viewing experience any which way.

This is a great continuation of the Veronica Mars television show, and a thoughtfully planned ending to a saga that everyone wanted to see finished. Cancelled before its time was over, the original show had an edgy, yet wounded lead character who didn't take shit from anyone and solved mysteries because they interested her. In this update we see all our favorite supporting characters, we resolve the relationship between Logan and Veronica once and for all, and the writing is of the same quality as the original show. The only thing that felt strange was the way the film ended. It was very sudden, almost unplanned in its bland simplicity. It's not that it's uncharacteristic of Veronica, either, just that it's very out of nowhere. Otherwise I found every moment in keeping with its predecessor, and a perfect end to a lovely show.
