Ryoo Seung-wan South Korea, 2015

msmichel's rating of the film Veteran

A disappointing mix of action and comedy that doesn't gel in a coherent way despite some good fight choreography in small flashes. Ah In Yoo is great as the villain, a one percenter who thinks he can buy himself out of trouble, who doesn't account for the honesty and integrity of the cop pursuing him. Their cat and mouse tale works but the silliness of the gags and mugging torpedo the film before long.
