Review:

Film Veteran hadir dengan paket lengkap. Mengapa? Karena film ini menyuguhkan banyak aspek hanya dalam durasi 123 menit saja. Kisah perjuangan, pengorbanan, serta percintaan terangkum apik dalam film. Meski mengusung genre action-kriminal, namun bumbu komedi lah yang sangat melekat di film.

Bagaimana tidak, di sela-sela ketegangan, para pemain masih sempat-sempatnya menlontarkan lelucon yang dapat membuat penonton tertawa. Di film ini, hanya karakter yang diperankan Yoo Ah In dan Yoo Hae Jin saja yang tidak tertawa.

Akting Yoo Ah In dalam film Veteran sangat baik. Ia mampu membawa karakter Jae Tae Oh begitu hidup. Bahkan tak jarang, penonton dibuat ikut emosi dengan tingkah menyebalkan dari Jae Tae Oh yang bengis.

Efek visual dan sinematografis dari film Veteran sangat bagus. Adegan berkelahi dan tabrak-menabrakkan mobil dalam film dibuat senatural mungkin. Film besutan Ryoo Seung Wan ini tampil berani tanpa CGI, padahal film mengusung genre kriminal.

Film Veteran telah mencetak rekor di negara asalnya, Korea Selatan, dengan jumlah penonton lebih dari 10 juta. Masyarakat Amerika Serikat pun tak kalah antusiasnya kala film produksi CJ Entertaiment ini rilis di sana. Bagaimana dengan Indonesia?

How not, on the sidelines of the tension, the players are still time-sempatnya menlontarkan jokes that can make the audience laugh. In this film, only the character played by Yoo Ah In and Yoo Hae Jin are not laughing.

Yoo Ah In’s acting in the movie is very good veteran. He was able to bring the characters so alive Oh Tae-jae. In fact, not infrequently, the audience is made participate emotions with annoying behavior of Tae Jae Oh cruel.

Visual effects and cinematographic film Veteran very nice. Fight scene and hit and crashed the car in the film was made as natural as possible. The film made by Ryoo Seung Wan is bold without CGI, whereas the film brought the genre of crime.
