Toby Kebbell keeps the viewer on edge with his gripping turn as an Afghanistan veteran

The Veteran review

Toby Kebbell continues his rise to stardom with a film-anchoring turn as a traumatised para who swaps the frying pan of Afghanistan for the fire of a crime-ridden south London estate.

Matthew Hope’s movie loses cred when it has Kebbell uncover the usual conspiracy – you know, the one that goes right to the heart of the government.

On the other hand, DoP Philipp Blaubach notches up some arresting images of the capital’s badlands, and there’s a fearsome immediacy to the action scenes, including a shoot-out finale that’ll make your speakers pop.
