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!

A non-stop rollercoaster of events and action that keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. The start is a bit slow but will have been more than worth it by the time you arrive at the end.

Same theme ..a young guy getting accused of a crime he didn't commit ...fabricated city is more action ..new trail is more emotional .

    This is a great action/scifi flick. Ah, the car flying out of the building had me screaming "YES, ridiculous over the top action movie stunts, whoohoo!" I also loved Kim Sang Ho as a inept criminal boss, he was hilarious. I'd watch this again, it's great.

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

    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.. :(

    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.
