South Korean director Ryu Seung-wan's second feature, No Blood No Tears, features an unlikely friendship between two women. Gyeong-seon (Lee Hye-Eun), a physically tough cab driver, and Su-jin (Jeon Do-yeon), a moll to a gangster named Bulldog (Jeong Jae-eun), meet when the latter hits the former's taxi. Gyeong is in debt to local mobsters because of her deadbeat former husband, and Su, who dreams of fame as a singer, is tired of being assaulted by Bulldog. Together, they plot to make away with the money from Bulldog's dog-fighting operation. The only question is if they can trust each other. The film was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

If you're looking for a good movie starring two women in serious action roles, this is it. The fight scenes are brutal and no punches are pulled for the fairer sex. The movie also includes one of the best and totally unexpected car accidents I've ever seen. The acting, directing, editing and choreography were very good. The audio defaults to Dolby Digital 5.1 and made good use of surround sound. There are no extras. Recommended.
Multiple character stories intersect with one another at various points in this fast-paced film by director Seung-wan Ryoo. The main plotline involves a lady safe cracker who attempts to pay back her debt to a shady criminal. There are a wide variety of short action scenes (e.g., alleyway martial arts fight; nighttime foot chase; scrappy apartment fight; money bag car chase; steel cage match) that are often brutally violent yet entertaining in their own ways. There are also lots of twists and a very satisfying ending.
