The Veteran ★★★★

Disillusioned with the war in Afghanistan, soldier Miller returns home to broken Britain suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He’s soon recruited by a covert intelligence agency on the trail of suspected terrorists whilst, closer to home, has to protect his neighbourhood from a local gang. Matthew Hope’s second feature as director is far more assured and strong footed with a gripping storyline, although you’ll have to excuse the excessively violent conclusion. It’s nice to see Toby Kebbell get a starring role his talent deserves, and the undersung Tony Curran offers great support as his intelligence contact.
