Product Description

Hyeong-do (SO Ji-sub) is a professional killer working for a company specializing in contract murders. Fronted as an ordinary metal trading company, killing is nothing more than daily business dealings here. Hyeong-do is one of the firm's best killers and a loyal employee. One day, he is assigned on a job with a newbie, Hun (KIM Dong-jun), who is supposed to be killed afterwards. Before meeting his fate, Hun asks Hyeong-do to pass the money he saved up for his family. After much hesitation, Hyeong-do visits Hun s house and meets Hun's mother, Mi-yeon (LEE Mi-youn) who turns out to be a one-hit wonder singer Hyeong-do used to adore as a teenager. After meeting her, he starts dreaming about a normal life. In the meanwhile, the company discovers that Hyeong-do didn t kill Hun as ordered. Hyeong-do, who now hopes to start a new life with Mi-yeon, finds himself being hunted down by his colleagues.

On the surface Ji Hyeong-Do (Ji-seob So) looks like any other ordinary businessman commuting in a train. Every morning he goes to the office of a medium-sized "metal trading" enterprise in Seoul. But what people in the same building do not know is that Ji Hyeong-Do has been working for the company that in fact specializes in contract killings. He is a faithful "company man" who gets paid and even "promoted" for what he does. He is even tasked with "firing" his co-workers.

One day Ji Hyeong-Do's perfect life as first-rate killer starts to change, however, when he chooses not to follow a certain part of the order given to him. This leads to his meeting with Yu Mi-yeon (Mi-yeon Lee), mother of two children. And Yu Mi-yeon was a singer Ji Hyeong-Do adored when he was young.

A 2012 Korean thriller "A Company Man" is more about the central character Ji Hyeong-Do and his transformation than about the brutal fights he has to go through. The action is sparse, especially in the first half of the film, but once it begins, it gets pretty tense with bloody and violent combat scenes.

Perhaps writer and director Sang-yoon Lim (his feature debut) could have developed the relationship between the salaried killer and the retired singer. Some of the subplots are also underdeveloped, with a police detective whose role the film could have used more effectively. With the superb acting from the cast and intense climax, however, "A Company Man" is worth checking out.

Great movie. Nicely paced, good story and likeable (and dislikeable) characters. The action scenes were pretty awesome - love the Tarantino-esque all out office scene at the end. U.S. folks may have mixed feelings about it but I think the entire concept of the movie is to take the stereotype of the salaried man to a new sarcastic, witty and over-the-top level so if you watch it with that view I think you'd enjoy it more. Not to say it's not enjoyable as is. Overall, definitely worth getting and watching. I'm also becoming a big fan of the lead actor So Ji-Sub. He seems to make some solid movie choices. I just watched him in Rough Cut (directed by Kim Ki Duk - who did Spring, Summer, Autumn, Fall... and Spring, Pieta, Samaritan Girl, 3-Iron, to name just a few of the classics), the Korean title is actually read "A Movie is a Movie" and the Korean title makes the movie make more sense when you watch it. Anyway, just saw him in that and that was pretty awesome. And saw him in Always ("Only You") and that was great too so 3 for 3 for me with this actor. Look forward to more movies with him.

Reserved actor So Ji-seob sesm perfect as the equally taciturn company hit man. On the way up, respected by the other company hitters, and envied by the secon-incommand who greased his way to number 2 spot. Its when he finds his humanity, he loses his killer mojo, endangering not only hims elf, but those he's come clsoe too. Tall, solid, Eastwood like character that takes on the whole killing company organization. Brutal, with no welcomed pause for some gallows humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true company man October 4, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I didn't know what to expect going in to watch this movie. I was not familiar with the main character. Man, was this like a slap to the face or something! the main guy, So Ji-Seob is a truly phenomenal actor. The intensity he portrays on screen is so heart wrenching. The film definitely starts slow, but that slow burn grows into something epic by the end. You get pulled into his goal and by the end you are cheering him on. This film totally made me his fan.

I recommend this to anyone that appreciates a good drama, there are some action scenes but they are not the focal point. (although, that scene in the car was so freaking awesome!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well done March 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Company man is a slam-bang, no nonsense action thriller in the vain of Luc Besson's 'Professional'.. the film also runs a tight parallel course between the emotions of its characters and the very realistic level of violence that it has to offer. I was very impressed by this film.
