Critic Reviews for The Veteran

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9)

[An] efficient, familiar urban thriller...

May 1, 2011 | Full Review…

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

April 28, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

April 28, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

April 28, 2011 | Rating: 2/5

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.

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.
