Disappointing Korean movie

I saw already some very good Korean movies but this one isn't one of them. Even though it's all nicely shot and you can clearly see they had a budget for this movie it's still not a great movie. Maybe it's the Korean language, that sounds like they are always really angry when they speak. It's just an awful language if you ask me. I speak four different languages myself and none of them sounds that angry all the time. Add on that that the majority of the actors in Veteran are not that good and you get quickly bored. At least I was, the end couldn't come quick enough. In other circumstances Veteran could have been better. By that I mean if it was in English for example, with better actors, and with more realistic action scenes. Now it's a typical Korean action movie, one that I'm not a fan of.

A lost opportunity

Seo Do-cheol is your typical detective in South Korean movies: violent, hypermasculine, more than willing to break a couple of heads. In his work he gets to know driver Bae. When Bae ends up in the hospital after attempting to commit suicide, Seo Do-cheol decides to investigate the reasons behind the act. Pretty soon his path crosses the one of rich young man Jo Tae-oh, who will not be very happy about Seo Do-cheol's intrusion in his daily life.

"Veteran" centers on the showdown between the detective and the rich kid, in a not very subtle critic of the heirs of big businesses that believe that everyone has to obey them and that they live in a world where rules don't apply to them. This could do for lots of fun. However, the movie just doesn't have much energy, and not much originality, either. This is caused, in part, by the rhythm. The movie is overlong and the pace suffers from it, scenes becoming stretched too thin and making the viewer disconnect with the proceedings. It doesn't help either that the action direction is flat, with little flash, even if, on a positive side, they have some good sense of humor.

"Veteran" ends being an average action-comedy movie, with your run- of-the-mill detective-vs-the-rich plot.

Action comedy at its best

The beginning bit alone is worth watching the movie. Of course the movie has to settle a bit after that much mayhem, but does pick up the pace towards the end again. The comedy action mixture is really fitting and the actors are doing a great job. It's obvious they have fun with the script and the comedy that ensues.

It may seem all over the place and a bit over the top (alright sometimes a lot over the top), but if you don't mind that, you will be entertained as much as I did. South Korea has some really good filmmakers and some great talent in general and here are some on display if you are open minded and love originality, than you should give this a try
