Veteran is a classy action-comedy which perfectly takes the social milieu and delivers in a splendid manner. The screenplay is pretty consistent with all the layers of story unfolding at the right moments; it never breaks the momentum of the viewer. The characterization is almost near the realism as every actor lives the life of the characters.
Jeong-min Hwang is a natural actor and has already given some of the best performances in Korean Cinema. He impeccably embodies the character of an upright cop who is agile and stands for morals. Ah In Yoo astonishingly portrays the character of a wrathful and treacherous businessman and his madness on the screen will make you cringe. Hae-jin Yoo and Dal-su Oh are remarkable in the supporting characters, both complement the screenplay effortlessly. Rest is cast has done pure justice to the characters.
Veteran has a slick action which packs the right punches and martial are never goes over the top. The cinematography works splendidly in the action scenes which are well choreographed too with lot of gags.
Korean Movies are quintessentially awesome when it comes to crime-action-comedy. The blend of dark humor with stylish action is a genre shift which is a hard nut to crack. Korean movies have already mastered in the genre and also there are also lot invocations. Veteran is an epitome of the same genre
