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
When she meets Mrs. Barnes (Ruby Jetson's landlady), Veronica Mars introduces herself as "Pam Martin" - a reference to actress Pamela Sue Martin who played Nancy Drew in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977) TV series. (Throughout the original Veronica Mars (2004) series, Veronica Mars occasionally referred to herself as "Nancy Drew," after the famous girl detective.) See more »
The top row of ribbons on Logan's uniform contains a Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal followed by an Air Medal. The Air Medal is the higher ranking decoration so it should come first. See more »
The very end of the closing credits include a thank you to the fans and backers:
"This movie would never have been possible without the endless faith and support of our fans around the world, and especially the 91,585 backers who pledged on Kickstarter to bring Veronica back to life. Thank you for never giving up, and for helping us do the impossible." See more »
This is a first: An unusual number of five star ratings at a rate that surpasses all the Academy Award (Oscars) nominated movies put together.
The reason: A large number of people are making sure their Kickstarter funding for this movie proves rewarding.
The movie: Simplistic dialogue that could only come from a cliché saturated Hollywood high school apprentice writer. Acting so bad the actors could manage only one short emotionless line then pause for the next actor to robotically respond in kind; back and tediously back and forth. Scenes composed of 95% dumbed down dialogue. Other 5% of scenes composed of a superficial attempt to appear current e.g. tablets, internet video, Samsung product placement phones. Lot of formula characters e.g. dumb act cool cops; surfer dude; party hangers; lawyers; etc.
Baddd: How bad? I was ff after 10 minutes and checking it every 10 to see if anything changed. Answer - as blandly homogenized as milk.
People! For the honest reviewers not financially invested in this movie; if you want to see quality acting, storyline, sets, props and actually have to think, then watch "The Best Offer". It may cleanse you of the effects of this film's shallow banality.
