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!

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

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.

Same pace of action, good acting and a fine film about the dangers of tabloid and digital rumor-spreading. Nice entertainment and concept was catching. Both movie is thrilling.

    Its fun and high quality and good budget but its not what i expect from a korean thriller, 2 hours 10minutes is too long for this plot. Still liked it

    I have watched this a couple time now. Despite the subpar subtitles, it is a really good movie. The subs are not so bad that you can't follow the movie. I have requested it on viki and dramafever so hopefully one of them will get it and I can watch again with good subs. If any of ya'll use these 2 sites please request this movie.

    Good action/thriller movie. First i was bit hesitate whether to watch it or not. Saw the rating and reviews though mixed reviews but gave a try. Firstly found wuss in ji chang wook character but later character development was awesome. Way he played the game with mastermind finally gave a blow strike. Other characters role were nicely done comically teamed up. I just find hackers jobs are one of the best jobs in the world can hack anything :D (jokes apart). If you wanna wtach any triller/action movie go for it. Would rate 8/10.

    I watched this for Shim Eun Kyeong, she was amazing, even though she didn't have enough screen time...
    The story was a little messy. it suddenly jumped from one scene to the next...
    The bad guy looked like he was the typical comic villains...
    Ji Chang Wook seems to play the same role over and over again, weak that becomes strong, strong pretending to be weak. the acting is always the same....

    I saw this mve becoz of Ji Chang Wook. I like the manipulative organization in this mve. Acting is on point. No romance here. Its a little dark theme. But very nicely done with the mve. The cast acted very well.

    I still don't understand what the title meant. I thought "Fabricated crime" would be an apt title as it describes the plot. Kim Sang Ho acted as a side villan here which surprised me becoz i only saw him in roles of comedian, kind person. I couldn't take seriously his actions becoz of his previous drama effect. I would have liked a little romance b/n the hacker girl and Wook but that's my opinion.

    Action scenes were good. The CG not really... but the few parts that made me remember Matrix were fun to watch. JCW as hottie as usual. The rest of the cast failed to impress me... Didn't like camera work and editing. All in all, you won't miss much if you skip this movie... unless you are a JCW fan and you must see his first main role in a movie...
