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.

May 9, 2011 Full Review Source: Daily Express
Daily Express

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

May 4, 2011 Full Review Source: Total Film
Total Film

A thriller which strains for contemporary relevance but lacks the spark to incite or entertain.

May 3, 2011 Full Review Source: Film4
Film4

Boasts some enjoyably brutal close-quarter fight sequences, not to mention a ludicrously over-the-top finale in which Toby Kebbel goes all Rambo on gangs of tower block-dwelling neds.

May 2, 2011 Full Review Source: Scotsman

[An] efficient, familiar urban thriller...

May 1, 2011 Full Review Source: Guardian
Guardian

Never pulls all the elements into a convincing whole, despite solid performances from the eternally watchable Cox and rising star Kebbell.

April 29, 2011 Full Review Source: Daily Express
Daily Express

Kebbell gives an intense, upfor-it turn, but it's a shame he wasn't given more to work with - and his character remains inscrutable throughout.

Daily Mirror [UK]

It's a thinly populated drama, full of sketchy, unconvincing characters...

April 28, 2011 Full Review Source: Guardian
Guardian

A guns-blazing showdown at the end jolts you back to attention, but the fumbled ironies of the plot leave a dour and portentous aftertaste.

April 28, 2011 Full Review Source: Daily Telegraph
Daily Telegraph

Kebbell in an unfamiliar, deadpan stance, but with that distant glint of madness in the eye that we were first exposed to in RocknRolla.

April 28, 2011 Full Review Source: Real.com

Clichéd, incoherent and queasily Daily Mail-pleasing, its conspiracy theorising third act is a disaster.

April 28, 2011 Full Review Source: Little White Lies
Little White Lies

Tries too hard to be an offshoot of the Bourne series.

Hope's strongest suit is Kebbell, who first impressed in Dead Man's Shoes opposide Paddy Considine and imbues Miller with a jittery menace reined in by a brooding sense of justice.

April 28, 2011 Full Review Source: Sky Movies
Sky Movies

Gritty and effective, this is an impressively directed British thriller that cleverly mixes several different elements and ultimately succeeds thanks to a mesmerising central performance from rising star Toby Kebbell.

A powerful, punchy slice urban thriller that shows off Kebbell at his most compelling.

Empire Magazine

Toby Kebbell's war hero Robert Miller is a troubled soul. He's a handsome fella with a bit of swagger but he looks in the mirror with pure hatred and ties his tie like he's garotting himself.
