Years after walking away from her past as a teenage private eye, Veronica Mars gets pulled back to her hometown - just in time for her high school reunion - in order to help her old flame Logan Echolls, who's embroiled in a murder mystery.
Former teenage private eye and now an aspiring New York City lawyer, Veronica Mars gets one phone call from ex-boyfriend Logan Echolls and she gets pulled right back into the seedy underbelly of Neptune, California. Logan's pop star girlfriend, Bonnie DeVille, has been murdered and he needs Veronica's help to clear his name. DeVille is a fellow Neptune High alum, and her murder and Veronica's return to Neptune coincide with their 10-year high school reunion. Veronica is face to face with old friends and foes alike and finds it's much harder to leave home a second time. Written by

This movie is AMAZING. Through the Rob Thomas' smart dialogues and the actors, who were born to play their characters, Veronica Mars comes alive once more, this time on the big screen. As a Marshmellow myself, I noticed a lot of little things related to the series that have been included in the movie, which makes the experience of watching it even more satisfactory. I was pleasantly surprised by the many characters (main and secondary) who used to be in the series that make an appearance in the movie. But I could also see, that someone who is interested in watching the film without watching the series first, can do that without any problem. The film provides them with all the information that is needed to understand the plot and who is who. The plot is super interesting, mixing very dark moments with funny ones (especially with the many cameos). This comedic-drama style of the story is one of the things that made the show great and I was very glad to find out that this has been kept in the movie. The sarcasm and frankness of Veronica are still there, she's still the same person; years have gone by, her career and other things have changed, but she's still the same Veronica that we used to love and admire in the series. So, the long wait is over. The people who used to watch the show finally get some closure; and for the people who watch this movie without any previous background of the story, it is just the beginning: it is a great introduction to the Veronica Mars universe.
