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.

    Toby bell, ive followed with interest, since the exellent dead mans shoes, he was great in rocknrolla, and then not much else, support turns in nothing special, a few hollywood blockbusters too. but here hes on home tuf, playing a returning veteran from our current war, disillusioned, jobless, he gets back into the game, working for a group, who are following terror suspects, they feel hes a good choice, and he takes to it. but as story goes on, doubts about the job, and indeed what hes following, add to that, threats from the job, and the state of estate he lives he needs to make tough desisions, climax showing results of this. the film comes off well, certainly commentating on current war on terror, and one mans minor, maybe inportant part in it, also, flaws, and corruption, and shadow dealings, nothing is flushed out fully, but everything comes together. and a great bloody climax that for me echoes taxi driver, which when viewed makes sence considering, the two storylines on charactors agenda. a interesting vehicle for the actor who i admire a lot
