Reviews: Veronica Mars (2014)

veronica_marsReviews for this film from our members:

  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: It’s nothing more than a television special meant to update a cult group as to whatever happened to… I didn’t care about the mystery or about the characters, especially if they were as dumb or crazy as they appeared in the movie.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Aside from an admittedly large number of call-backs to the series itself, “Veronica Mars” the film does a fine job getting the non-fan viewer up to speed on the show.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [T]his continuation of the story from the television show is so dependent upon one’s intimacy with the show that, as a standalone movie, it is restrictive.
  • Marilyn Ferdinand @ Ferdy on Films
    • Excerpt: Veronica Mars is a solid, if unremarkable film whose hole-filled scenario is rather beside the point. What fans of the series and viewers of the film will most enjoy is a chance to visit with or revisit some beloved characters indelibly created by the prodigious talent of the actors who played them, their acting chops better than ever, and especially the incredible chemistry between Bell and Dohring and the close relationship Veronica has with her father.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Sassy, snappy two-hour spin-off from the original cult favorite.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: I’ve never seen the show that spawned it, but it was still exactly what I was expecting. I am neither overwhelmed nor underwhelmed by it. I am whelmed.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Short Version: Must-see for fans but non-fans are left in the dark.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Working as a breezy, highly entertaining diversion, “Veronica Mars” taps into what brought the three-season-running show such a cult following.
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: The result is dripping in nostalgia, but missing a great deal of what made the original fun.
  • Nell Minow @ The Movie Mom
  • Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • Josh Spiegel @ Sound on Sight
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: The most accurate–and distressing–description of the movie is that, apart from being shot in widescreen format, it actually feels like an extended episode of the show.
