Again, I just love So Ji Sub in these types of movies! He does badass so well! I know people want him to do romances but I want him to do what makes him happy because he does this type so well. This is not for the faint at heart because it is about a group of contract killers so there is a lot of blood and killing. I enjoyed from start read more to finish! What a ride! My man in action again!

This movie is sleek and smooth, very polished from all ends, compact, simple and slow. It's hard to find anything to complain about, but there is nothing much to praise either. It's not a great movie, but it isn't a bad movie either. This is a good choice when you want to watch something entertaining, with hints of mystery and tragedy but nothing too serious. A Company Man is vague.

This is read more a story about a man and only about him, strictly from his perspective. It's as if the movie was written for So Ji Sub and if you are his fan this is a must see. But then again, if the main actor was someone else I would say the same thing. There is nothing special about the plot, but it's well thought with no holes or loose ends, the script and directing are flawless, acting is great too. There are no over the top bloody fighting scenes, no gore, no bloodbaths. Alongside the action there is a wonderful love story, it brings a certain balance.

The ending reminds me of a computer game, that's when I realized that this movie is soulless. It didn't stir any emotions in me, the plot is predictable and if you have watched enough Korean gangster movies you will guess the plot twist too. But as mentioned before, acting and scenery are superb so it's still worth watching just for the fun.

Both are about men who turn into "monsters" trying to seek revenge.

A Company Man is also an Action/Thriller. In both, the main character is a killer and also they are trying to protect someone.

    It's a miss for everyone, not a hit for sure. Watchable one time because of So ji Sub. Once again he proved that he is a skillful actor.
    The reason why I saw this movie is STUNT CHOREOGRAPHY. I give 10/10 for the fight scenes and I didn't believed that So ji Sub can perform this well in stunts. Coming back to the stunt choreograpghy I would say few stunts scenes in this movie should stand in top 10 of all time Korean movie stunt scenes. Editing was too good too. The plot and screenplay has let down the whole movie.
    8/10

    I think the movie was too slow at some parts but it picks up and stays at a decent pace.

    Gostei bastante. Ótimas cenas de ação, mas tem cenas bonitas, de reflexão também. Trilha sonora boa e tudo muito bem editado.

    Not a deep movie, but it's entertaining, and the action scenes were pretty cool. It's a very linear movie that's essentially good to watch if you don't want to think too much, and if you're looking for some blood.

    A movie with Guns. Shots. "Sorry". Death. Well, sadness be so warm, peaceful, and beautiful. It was slow paced and I liked it. The world's a scary place. Ignorance is bliss wouldn't you say?

    The story felt like it was lacking some depth, I personally would have liked to see some more romance to make it more believable... I loved the action scenes tho, so I'd say that it was worth watching just for those ^_^
