J Hurtado ScreenAnarchy A Company Man Is A Bittersweet Life In A Wanted World Nov 6, 2017 Full Review Isaac Feldberg We Got This Covered With a more interesting storyline and better supporting actors to pair with its terrific action sequences and emotive leading man, A Company Man could have been more than half of a great movie.

Audience Member Between the entertaining action sequences, The very basic revenge plot line is not enough to carry the movie along. I did not care about any of the characters, or their relationships with each other, which the movie relies upon to drive the story. The final fight sequence is a bit unbelievable and comical. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member 44% Saw this on 1/12/15 With a plot borrowed from A Bittersweet Life without any of the latter's style and a combination of boring, dull plot with mostly cliched situations, subpar acting, Company man is the worst Korean film that I have seen thus far. I don't watch many Korean films, but when I do, they will be great. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A Company Man is a tired exploitation of the Korean revenge movie genre. The synopsis is almost a copy/paste of A Bittersweet Life, and has the same main actor playing an identical type of character. The biggest difference I found is that A Bittersweet Life has an awesome soundtrack while A Company Man score is nothing but memorable. Otherwise, the ressemblance is so obvious that as the story unveiled itself, i found myself exponantially hoping I was rewatching ABSL instead. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review johnathon w Above average thriller that while not perfect, makes up for thanks to some excellent action & unrelenting plot. Jisub So is solid in the lead role while not being showy while getting great support from the rest of the cast. Behind the camera, Sang-yoon Lim crafts some fun action scenes (a knife fight on a busy highway is a highlight) while keeping the twists & deaths coming (some of which are surpising). However, he doesn't take advantage of the corporate/mafia parallels first presented, which could have been a great source of satire. Overall, a solid action film but not much more than that. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Feels like a good start to Lim making the standard Well Go films, just needs more polish in a few areas- most notably the great RED cinematography in the whole film till the final end gun fight that for some reason looks to be shot on a eng camera at 60i and never corrected for some reason. I think the story is also abit to romance-ish that feels off with the pace in places. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Halfway decent action movie. It's something that Jet Li or Jason Statham would do for Stateside production. The action sequences are spectacular and very well-choreographed. The plot is simple as a hitman kills someone and then befriends the family. Then he supports the family and well, does what he does best. It has veins of Leon the Professional. Hitman and other similar movies. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
