All Critics (23) | Top Critics (3)

Channels the world-weary '70s paranoia of 'Taxi Driver' and 'The Conversation' through the imposingly clinical formal approach of process-fixated auteurs like Robert Bresson or Michael Haneke.

Movies for the Masses

The storytelling lacks some polish but the picture builds to a powerful, high body-count climax.

Daily Express

A state-of-the-nation conspiracy thriller split three ways, The Veteran overstretches itself by fighting on too many fronts at once.

Audience Reviews for The Veteran


Awful. While the combat sequences are great, especially the gun battle near the end of the film, this movie takes forever to get off the ground, and is flat-out boring for most of its duration. Plus the ending is pointless and horrible, which really kills the film.


Had some major flaws, but overall it was decent. Lol at the villain explaining everything thou. Who does that? :S
