  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    Similar to 'Nowhere', only with the emotions turned up to 11. It avoids some of the mistakes of its predecessor, but ends up making new ones. It felt derivative at times, but the action sequences were quite good.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    The relationship between Dong-Gun and Min-Hee is exceptional, pulling you into its complication immediately. However, unlike The Man From Nowhere, it has a problem of balancing its action and relationship drama elements. The action scenes are well choreographed but stretch too long, much like the first acts dramatic buildup, as both could've been better distributed. And most of the side characters are interchangable.

  4. Zach Closs's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    As with Jeong-Beom's "The Man from Nowhere," there's a melancholy central performance, great photography and terrific action sequences. This time around however, the director makes the mistake of focusing exclusively on another needlessly complicated plot propelled by irritating gangster clichés. Won Bin and Sae-ron Kim's chemistry gave "Nowhere" its heart and urgency; that's what's missing here. Could've been more.

  5. Tigrão's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    As a script, it's ok. not the best thing from SK to have come out. But as a ridiculously enjoyable and perfectly choreographed action film? it's just spot on.

  6. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    An action redemption story hidden somewhere inside a plot with 100 different interchangeable meaningless characters in business suits, the russian mob, the triads, evil companies, financial accounts, passwords, SIM cards, shady motivations, double backstabbings zzzzZZzzzZZzzzzZZzzzzzZzzzZzzZZzzzZzzZzzzzZzzZzz. What did John Wick and Mad Max teach us about action movies last year? CUT THE FAT || MotelX2015

  7. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    Good but derivative action movie that tries and somewhat succeeds in dealing with emotional qualities as much as action set pieces. The story is decent but the acting is a bit uneven. Production values are stellar but the score is pretty bland. Still this is way better than recent Hollywood fare like the horrible John Wick and The Equalizer.

  8. HKFanatic's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    Call it the disappointing B-Side to "The Man From Nowhere." Writer/director Lee Jung-Beom follows up his breakout hit by stealing from himself (again we follow a stylishly-dressed killer haunted by a little girl), not to mention several action beats from Tsui Hark's "Time and Tide" and John McTiernan's "Die Hard." The result is bloody and entertaining enough, but entirely forgettable in comparison to its predecessor.

  10. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    Really, you need just one Chinese and two Colombian hitmen to destroy Korea.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film No Tears for the Dead

    Lee Jung-Beom follows up the magnificent 'The Man from Nowhere' with another tale of a hit man hitting rock bottom and having to battle to keep both his former quarry and himself alive from his former employers. Like the previous entry its a very well made and exciting film but this one suffers in comparison more for its similarities than its differences. Performances are strong with many stellar action set pieces.
