User Reviews: Why, oh why, do these South Korean filmmakers INSIST on having over-sentimental, crying, syrupy scenes in their otherwise nice and tense thrillers? I’d give this movie an 8, or even 9, if they exorcised those ridiculous bits which, to be, drags the film to an abysmal low.

That said, "No Tears for the Dead" is still a movie worth seeing if you’re into fast-paced thrillers with buckets of blood to spare. In that department, this film is spot on. It’s one of the goriest thrillers I’ve seen in a while, at least since "John Wick" anyway. I’m glad I did see this flick even though I have this nagging feeling that I might forget about it tomorrow. Yeah, it was kinda generic in its many kill scenes, and that’s probably why.
