Starring: Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring

The popular television mystery series makes the leap to the big screen in this feature financed by an ambitious Kickstarter campaign. Directed by Rob Thomas (who shares a co-screenwriting credit with Diane Ruggeiro), the film follows Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) as she returns to her hometown of Neptune, CA, to investigate a case during her ten-year high-school reunion.

3 stars out of 4 — “It’s effective as a sequel to the television series and works just as well as a stand-alone film.” (USA Today)

“MARS fans will have a blast. And those jazzy blues notes that deepened the series resonate onscreen.” (Rolling Stone)

“[I]t’s smooth and engaging…clearly informed by Thomas’ genre-savvy storytelling and unpretentious craftsmanship, and not without a certain self-deprecating sense of humor…” (Variety)

4 stars out of 5 — “Never mind the Kickstarter success story — a character-driven crime mystery that relies on investigation rather than action is a rare, delightful thing in itself.” (Total Film)

“Kristen Bell is in fine form as the sharp-witted and stiletto-tongued Veronica, whose high polish on the art of sarcasm has endeared her to fans as a supremely self-possessed outsider.” (Hollywood Reporter)

“VERONICA MARS updates but preserves the smartly insular, Nancy Drew–meets–Buffy–meets–Emma Peel spirit of the teen-private-eye series.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“As a nostalgia trip, and a valentine to the virtues of its terrific source material, VERONICA MARS gets the job done.” — Grade: B (A.V. Club)
