73.No Tears for the Dead

No Tears for the Dead - "U-neun nam-ja" (original title)  (2014) : An average movie with some great action sequences.

Language: Korean
Genre: Action Drama
Director: Jeong-beom Lee
Writer: Jeong-beom Lee
Stars: Dong-gun Jang, Min-hee Kim, Brian Tee

Gon (Jang Dong-gun) is a Korean-born but American-raised assassin living and working in the Los Angeles. He makes a terrible mistake of killing an innocent girl while completing his assignment which was supposed to be his final job. Gon returns to his apartment and tries to drown his regret in alcohol. But the situation becomes worse when his boss assigns him the job of killing the young girl's mother. Gon's new target Mogyeong, is a risk manager at an investment firm and has buried herself in work to bury her grief on the lost of her daughter. All he has to do is travel to South Korea and kill the child’s mother, but he can’t bring himself to do it and instead becomes something of a guardian angel as others come to complete the job he abandoned...

No Tears for the Dead is  similar to the directors previous film " The Man From Nowhere" in a lot of ways,  but this one doesn't have a strong script like The Man From Nowhere. The lack of character development in "No Tears For the Dead" is what makes "The Man From Nowhere" so much better. In "The Man From Nowhere", you actually cared about the characters and what the protagonist goes through to save his neighbor's child. Here, it is almost nonexistent since the action sequences leave no time for them to get acquainted. Yet director Lee manages to entertain the audience with its wonderfully choreographed action sequences. No Tears for the Dead once again shows Lee’s mastery of action sequences as everything from the choreography, cinematography, editing and sound design combine to create some incredibly exciting scenes. The lead actors have done a very good specially  Dong-gun Jang as Gon, His action sequences and emotional sequences were equally good

Overall No Tears for the Dead is an average movie with great action sequences and a lot of blood shed, which will entertain the fans of action movies. Its not a must watch film if you're a die hard fan of action movies you can go for this...
