Kwon Yoo, whose life consists of playing all the time video games and who is 'throwing away' his life at the eyes of his mother, founds a phone ringing in a PC Bang. The person on the other side of the line, the owner, tells him that she will pay him a lot of money for returning the phone. Kwon Yoo goes to get the money and finds himself framed for murder and thrown into prison. Will he be able to survive there?

"Fabricated City" is an interesting movie that doesn't break the mold in the plot department (framed innocent character that will have to prove their innocence) but tries to overcome this with flashy visuals, lots of camera work and the use of technology as a plot device.

However, the movie cannot overcome its flimsy plot, a plot that stretches over two hours and tries a one or two twists too many. On top of that, the pace and direction make it have a very detached look and in too many places the slow motion is overused for no particular purpose, as with Kown Yoo first moments in prison. The direction also seems to think that constant cuts and strange camera angles make for cool visuals.

The acting is all posturing, but it works for this kind of movie. The hero, though, is a little bit bland and it is difficult to invest in him.

It all ends being your typical B action movie with A production values. A bigger interest in the pace and characterization and less in the visuals would have improved it.
