With the epidemic of hyperbole filling every last gap of the internet it would be easy to blow off that statement.

Just so this is out-of-the-way up front: I never watched the TV series _Veronica Mars_. I have pretty much zero context for the film other than that a lot of people really liked the show but then it as cancelled and then last year the makers of the show started a [KickStarter project](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/559914737/the-veronica-mars-movie-project) to make a movie. With a $2 Million goal they had modest hopes, but then they were funded to the tune of $5 million dollars from people in 21 countries, became the fastest kickstarter project to his $1 million and then $2 million, and now we have a movie. A movie which a lot of people have really been looking forward to but I have no context for.
So how does it stand up? Pretty well actually.
