Movie Info

After an international auto theft sting, a dimwitted detective Do-chul is treated to a night at a club where he meets Sun-jin Group third-in-line, Tae-oh, whose rude behavior rubs Do-chul the wrong way. Convinced Tae-oh is a drug addict, Do-chul tries to investigate, but is stopped by his boss. Meanwhile, Tae-oh runs into Mr. Bae a truck driver that helped Do-chul with his auto theft case - and his 9-year old son, protesting to get his overdue wages. After being humiliated and beaten for Tae-oh's amusement, Bae is hospitalized but his son finds Do-chul's business card and calls for help. Do-chul feels responsible and so decides to get Tae-oh, no matter what it takes and no matter how much Tae-oh tries to sabotage him.

Critic Reviews for Veteran

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

An unremarkable crime tale, one whose plot often feels more the stuff of a brash one-hour TV procedural than a two-hour feature film.

"Veteran" is amusing throughout, even if the funny scenes are more subdued or go on a beat or two longer than American viewers are used to.

A film that saves the best for the last, going from being a detective comedy to drama. [Full review in Spanish]

While Veteran may resemble dozens of other recent South Korean thrillers, ... Ryoo imbues his film with a style and swagger all its own.

Apr 6, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An exceptional cast, a tight, sharp script with perfect rhythm, rip-roaring comedy, and of course, the exciting action we've come to expect from director Ryoo Seung-wan, makes Veteran an excellent time at the movies.

an exciting, often very funny ride through Korea's social divisions, class inequalities and rough justice, Gangnam-style or otherwise.
