(it) wrote: In all fairness this cinematic conclusion to the tv series Veronica Mars (which fans thought they'd never get) doesn't work as a standalone film at all, but as a piece of fan service, it's just lovely. Coming a full seven years after the series was cancelled, it's like a warm reunion for cast and fans alike, sometimes feeling like a whole season crammed into a movie, it doesn't always satisfy and can by frustratingly unfocused. Some characters are given far too short shrift ( "poor Pizz") and the second of the two mystery's involving corruption in the Neptune police force (featuring Jerry O'Connell as basically a reboot of the character "chief Don Lamb") is really half cooked and never feels finished (an extra twenty minutes on this movies runtime would have helped massively) and some characters feel like walk-on's, but the grace notes and little moments throughout are so satisfying for a fan that you forgive it it's mistakes. It's not what we would have fully hoped and it insnt for newbies but in many ways it's the ending we wanted, an actual send off for our beloved Veronica (Kristen Bell is as great as ever) all your fave characters are here, there's some really sweet resolutions and everything is wrapped up in a surprisingly bittersweet way. "Thank you".

(au) wrote: Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. It's right up (down?) there with "Battleship Earth" and "Jaws 3 in 3-D".

(kr) wrote: A very good film, featuring eight different stories and no happy ending.
(fr) wrote: I thought it was really good movie, Peter Greene really made it worth watching, fantastic!
(fr) wrote: Melville brings to the screen another masterful film. Our hero only gets two breaths in this painfully confining (both literally and figuratively) heist film. The first in an amazingly choreographed armored car robbery and the second in the explosive finish. Definitely one of Melville's best.
(kr) wrote: This version of Joan of Arc is adapted from the George Bernard Shaw play, unfortunantely it doesn't work 100% in it's adaption to the screen. Jean Seberg takes the role of Joan. Seberg looks great and does a fare job seeing as she has little action to work with. The story is told in flash back and basically consists of two acts (based on the original acts of the play). The first act being the events of crowning the Dauphin and leading the French army at Orleans, and the second Joan's trial and execution. The main problem I found with this is that there is so little action, just when you think that something exciting is going to happen, like the battle at Orleans, it fades to black and switches to scenes after the event. This is a fairly enjoyable film, with a good cast, but there are superior movie versions of the story.
