“Veronica Mars” Film Synopsis:
Even if you have not seen the “Veronica Mars” TV series, you would have a not-so-hard time understanding the movie version. Here is a brief summary of the popular TV series. “Veronica Mars” started airing in 2004 until 2007. It has managed to produce three seasons. The protagonist, Veronica Mars, is a high school student then. She lives in Neptune, California. After her best friend Lilly Kane (Amanda Seyfried) was murdered and her father was removed as county sheriff, Mars ventured herself into solving the city’s mysteries.
In the “Veronica Mars” movie, Mars is about to graduate in law school when her ex-boyfriend, Logan, calls her for help because he is accused of murder. She returned to Neptune to help her old flame find a lawyer. When the case did not turn out well, Mars find herself again in the past she tried to leave behind.
According to Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer, 95% of moviegoers would like to see this film.
Since “Veronica Mars” has gone from TV to motion picture, reviews about the TV show may somehow be helpful in gauging the movie’s plot. Out of ten stars, IMDb gave this series 8.4 stars.
“Veronica Mars” can be compared with “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.” Both girls are in high school, solving mysteries. Well, except that there are no vampires to slay on “Veronica Mars.” Instead, there are several cases about humans to solve.
Joyce Millman of The Boston Phoenix said that the series can be addictive and was well put together. She also described Veronica’s character who, like Buffy, was “a sarscastic little blonde with balls of steel.”
“The story of a 17-year-old high-school girl who helps her private-eye dad solve mysteries, Veronica Mars has a distinct Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe, and that’s the highest compliment I can pay it,” she added in the Boston Phoenix report.
Now that “Veronica Mars” has gone from TV to motion picture, expect hardcore fans who are also referred to as “Marshmallows” to troop to theatres on March 14, 2014. After all, it’s because of these fans that the movie version happened in the first place because they helped back up the funding of “The Veronica Mars Movie Project” by Rob Thomas on Kickstarter.com.
