Stone veneer

I'm thinking about doing a little updating to a portion of the front of the house. I like the looks of some of the stone veneer products out there. The issue is that I want to cover a 5' X 20' area that is currently brick. - the kind of brick where the faces look "broken off" instead of a perfectly smooth surface.

Can I still put (screw) the veneer panels over an uneven surface without it looking half-a$$ed?

I would surmise that you could use a long straight edge and drag it across to surface to identify any trouble spots that may need attention. High spots can be chipped away with a cold chisel. you will want the panels to lay relatively flat or you will not see veneer, you will see panel breaks of the individual sheets.
