As someone who binge-watched the Veronica Mars TV series on Netflix a few years back and highly enjoyed it, I was a bit saddened by the fact that such an interesting and well-written show was axed before its time. The show got three seasons under its belt before being cancelled in 2007, and fans have been clamoring for some kind of continuation of the series for the better part of a decade now. Crowd-funding site Kickstarter was just what creator Rob Thomas needed to get his Veronica Mars movie pitch off the ground; the film’s $2 million Kickstarter funding goal was reached within just 24 hours, shattering records in the process. So is the final product worthy of the fans’ massive $3 million+ contribution? In a word, yes. Veronica Mars plays like an extended episode of the TV series, offering up an intriguing murder mystery and providing plenty of fan service (and celebrity cameos) along the way.
