It’s very hard this day and age to find an action-thriller that has heart. South Korean import A Company Man tries very hard but sadly, falls short. It is a film with cool martial arts moves, imaginative gun battles and attractive actors. These are the highlights but unfortunately, the story and script seem all too familiar and just not worthwhile.
A Company Man revolves around Hyeong-do (SO Ji-sub), a young hitman who is having a change of heart when it comes to his shady profession. He meets a woman and decides to live a normal life but his former employers make this goal rather difficult to reach. Car chases, hand-to-hand combat and bullet fly in this lukewarm action-thriller.
Aside from an outstanding action sequence in the finale, A Company Man has very little to offer. The Blu-ray transfer in gorgeous with very clear picture and rich audio. The acting is pitiful and the script seems to have been written by a child. If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of watching A Company Man, then God help you. Skip the actors’ dialogue and just go straight to the violence. The action is really the only thing keeping this disaster of a film together and that is sad because there was a lot of potential here.
Blu-ray Bonus Features
Unfortunately, the bonus features for A Company Man are very light. There is just a making-of featurette and a trailer for the film.
