A long time ago, we loved this show called “Veronica Mars,” and we never got over its questionable ending. When the show ended, there were rumors floating around that a movie was on its way and somehow the floating rumors sunk. All of a sudden, we see a Kickstarter campaign last year, requesting for the fans to help to fund the movie. It is safe to say that the campaign was a huge success. With a little help from those die-hard Veronica Mars fans, we get to see an amazing finish to the series finale. With the series’ sudden ending, fans were left with so many unresolved questions: about the Mars love triangle and what happened to Veronica after college, as the ending was not too clear about her choice.
The movie opens with a glimpse of Veronica’s journey from the show in her perspective. Since day one, it has been a first person narration by Ms. Mars herself and the creators of the movie kept that going throughout the film. The reason we fans love the narration is that it lets us be a part of Mars’ jouney and it gives us an idea about what is going on in her head. When she started her new journey we see her living a normal life and applying for a boring law firm job until she takes a step back when she gets a call from her former lover Logan.
The whole movie was filled with the right amount of suspense. The director intended for it to be another episode of the show and more intense than your average “Veronica Mars” episode. Fans funded this movie in order to find out what became of Mars’ love triangle and her friend circle. Throughout the movie, the creator gives the audience closure by tying up all the loose ends about the main characters. Through this investigation, Mars stalled on her new job and a life with her current boyfriend, Piz. During the movie, she admitted that she had an addiction like her mother, but it was not for alcohol. It was for the thrill of solving the chaos in people’s lives, especially when it came to the people that she loved. For example, even though Veronica Mars seemed to move on with her life in New York with Piz, she kept coming back to Logan, which was a reminder for her needs rather than her wants. The #TeamLogan versus #TeamPiz story arc was well played out in the movie.
The character development was impressive in terms of the main character especially Logan who turned out to be the perfect man at the end of the day after everything he went through. As far as Mars’ character goes, she was always a little more mature than her age and Piz’s character did not evolve as much as we have seen since the finale. After Mars left everything in New York, at the end we get to see her embrace her true nature as an investigator.
