[An] efficient, familiar urban thriller...May 1, 2011 | Full Review…
Quote not available.April 29, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
It's a thinly populated drama, full of sketchy, unconvincing characters...
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.
Clichd, incoherent and queasily Daily Mail-pleasing, its conspiracy theorising third act is a disaster.
Tries too hard to be an offshoot of the Bourne series.April 28, 2011 | Rating: 2/5
Audience Reviews for The Veteran
Jun 05, 2015Awful. 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.Stephen S Super Reviewer
