CJ Entertainment America Will Release Both DVD And Blu-ray Editions Of No Tears For Dead On Feb. 17

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Writer/director Lee Jeong-Beom, the Korean filmmaker who gave us The Man From Nowhere in 2010 is back with his latest thriller, No Tears for the Dead.   On Feb. 17 both DVD and Blu-ray editions will be heading to the domestic home entertainment courtesy of CJ Entertainment America. 

Gon (Jang Dong-Gun — The Warrior's Way, Dangerous Liaisons, etc.) is a professional killer — working both sides of the Pacific, who has been stateside since being kissed off by his mother upon arrival years earlier.   Raised as killer … a mob tool.  

When his latest “contract” goes awry, his employers “suggest” that he clean up the mess by returning to Seoul and take care of a certain “loose end.”   

The mess?   A young girl was caught in the crossfire and killed (children getting whacked tends to raise hell with the public).   The “loose end,” that would be the girl’s mother, Mo-Gyeong (Kim Min-hee — The Sword with No Name, Helpless, etc.) and Gon is dispatched to take care of her.

No Tears for the Dead would be a very short movie if Gon actually followed orders and put a bullet in Mo-Gyeong’s head.   Instead, he has a change of heart and becomes her protector … and if you don’t think that starts World War III with his employers, then you haven’t seen a Lee Jeong-Beom film!   WOW!   If you demand action, then No Tears for the Dead delivers that in spades!!

Bonus features include two viewing options — the original Korean-language version or an English-dubbed presentation — commentary by writer/director Lee Jeong-Beom and a making-of featurette.  

Exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are deleted scenes, interviews with cast members and a featurette titled “Action Highlights.”
