Watched this with my brother at our local cinemas with English subtitles. Loved it! Great thriller/action film. Adequate amount of explosions/slow motion. Good quality plot that kept me guessing, and a truly despicable villain. Could have done better when it comes to character development. Great soundtrack. Very fast paced, very entertaining. If you're looking for a blockbuster thriller/action, this is the film for you.

Oh, this was fun. I love action movies and really good chase scenes. Fabricated City has several to spare. FC is nothing like I thought it might be from reading the description. It is a lot more grittier and realistic than I expected. If Ji Chang Wook, was trying to rid himself of the pretty boy image in order to move into meatier roles, he certainly found the right vehicle. I found read more the prison scenes especially surprising.

In a nutshell, Freeter/NEET (whatever you want to call him) Kwon Yoo finds himself beautifully set up for a murder. Like most NEETs he spends most of his day playing online MMOs. He is the chief or leader of a raid party in what appears to be his favorite MMO. There is a fantastic scene that takes place in the game. Honestly, I thought this would be on the level of certain animes that have people possibly stuck in their games like BTOOM! or even Log Horizon. It's not. The production team did a very good job introducing the game and the real world. They make it clear this is no fantasy. His team come from behind their computers to help prove his innocence. Because of that I found the story somewhat original.

The cast is great. JCW did a very good job as Kwon Yoo, especially once he realized he needed to toughen up and protect himself to survive. The cast has some of my favorite Korean character/supporting actors like Oh Jung Se (recently in Missing 9), Kim Sang Ho (Missing 9, TEN), and Kim Min Kyo (currently seen in Strong Woman DBS). Woo Hyun also has a small weird role that fit him perfectly. The cast did a fine job. They had chemistry, whether be it friendly or hatred. The connections were there.

The music was good. It helped at excitement and tension at the right places. I don't remember any actual songs, but, to be honest, one would have been out of place.

I would definitely watch this again. I hope that Netflix gets it soon so there can be actual subs timed correctly. That's right I watched a version lacking subs and what subs there were were poorly timed AND I still recommend it!

Same theme ..a young guy getting accused of a crime he didn't commit ...fabricated city is more action ..new trail is more emotional .
Recommended by coolcancerian
Both have similar exciting and full of action movie . Main characters suddenly caught up in the crime. The storyline between the mother/father and the son is strong and balances the crazyness. Both were an entertaining movie to watch with family.

    Amazing movie, though bad subtitles but it wasn't their fault. It's a fun ride and should watch it without any preconceptions.

    i like ji chang wook but up until that point when this movie premiered i was secretly praying for them to stop using him in another action movie/drama. he was so overused to the point that his productions lose charm. im liking him in suspicious partner but that show is also a flop because of everything else but him.

    When i saw Ji Chang Wook i wasn't sure to watch it or not.. i like him in Drama but these Actors are not my favorite in movies. At points it was a little bit to much. It's always the same when actors like him play a role in a action movie. The movie wasn't bad but some scenes are the reason why people don't take asian movies serious.. :(

    I didn't expect much from this movie but in the end I really enjoyed it, story and actors on point. First time I watch something with Ji Chang Wook and he really is a good actor !

    One of the best action-packed thriller movies I've seen! Ji Chang Wook is an amazing actor.
    Shim Eun Kyung also did great job. I'm not sure it is suitable for everyone because the plot is dark and violent at times but I still highly recommend it.

    PSA: the corrected subs for this movie is merely a smoothing over of the admittedly awful Korean --> Indonesian --> English translation. My Korean friend and I are currently working on this existing subtitle file for an ACTUAL corrected version. You can expect it in under a week (fingers crossed) :D
