The television show Veronica Mars has been off-air for seven years, but thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Veronica has returned, this time to the big screen in the Veronica Mars movie. Once teenaged detective Veronica returns to her hometown to help clear her ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) of a murder charge.

For fans of the show, this movie is a must-see. The numerous cameos allow for many familiar faces to return, creating a feeling akin to catching up with old friends, and fans will enjoy seeing how the characters have changed since we last saw them.

Newcomers to Veronica Mars should still consider seeing the movie for Bell’s wonderfully charismatic portrayal of Veronica. Bell’s performance and the dialogue are strong enough to pull even new audiences into the story. Although the movie can’t entirely capture the charm of the original series, it is still worth a watch.
