Critic Reviews for The Veteran

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (1)

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.

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

May 9, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

May 3, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

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.
