Well Packed Surprise
1 April 2016 | by ajiueverSee all my reviews

Veteran is a story of a good detective who hunts down a rogue and arrogant businessman. The story makes you think that a clichéd one. But i bet that no.. its not clichéd.. well, the story looks familiar to you but the narration, performances and the whole treatment makes this movie a watchable and entertaining one. The main lead Jeong-min Hwang did a wonderful job as the detective and he steals the show in every sense. Dal-su Oh, who did the support to the detective as the Chief supported the main lead and was funny too. Ah in yoo was excellent in antagonist shoes delivering performances in the whole one. The action scenes were well choreographed, was brutal, especially the climax action scenes and the climax scenes were also good. The background score was also good which was totally synced with the movie. Korean lovers, if you haven't seen this movie yet.. Then i reckon that you are going to miss a well executed movie My rating: 8.5 on 10
