Veteran follows a veteran policeman as he investigates the apparent suicide of a truck driver. His investigation leads him to the highest levels of a mega-corporation and brings him into conflict with the corrupt world of the super-rich. The movie is suspenseful and visually exciting with intricately choreographed car chases and fight scenes. The film’s extraordinary success, with the fourth highest Korean box-office record, was partially due to the prominence of stories about corruption and misbehavior by members of the wealthy elite that erupted onto the front pages of newspapers during the time of the film’s release. In Korean with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including graphic violence, drug references, and strong language.
