Years after walking away from her past as a young 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
Towards the end of the closing credits, we hear one of Logan's voice mail recordings:
"[phone ringing] This is Logan reminding you: if you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask which seat, just get on. Sheryl Sandberg said that. So don't leave a message. Go get on that rocket ship. Or, leave a message. Your call. Your decision will tell me a lot about you." See more »
I see all these negative reviews from people and then they end with "I haven't seen the TV show though". That made me want to write this review so I could maybe clear something up.
I, who was a huge fan of the TV show, can understand why this movie sucks if you don't know the characters.
I think it's safe to say that this is nothing more than a reunion. It's something fans should watch if they want to see what has happened to all their favourite characters from the show.
I've also seen many reviews saying "where was the humour?". Also that I can understand. Almost every joke in this movie, is a joke about something that has happened in the TV show.
I can't stress this enough: It's a great movie for fans of the TV show and it's better than most reunions, BUT it doesn't have a great story of it's own apart from the TV show, which makes it a boring and confusing movie for people who don't know the characters already.
