Wiki

Charismatic young stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus play two Irish brothers, Connor and Murphy, who believe themselves ordained by God to rid the world of evil men. Their first killing is in self-defense; but after that, they start killing with devotion, gunning down a summit of the Russian mafia. Willem Dafoe plays a gay FBI agent (he listens to opera while examining crime scenes) who knows what the boys are doing but feels that their vigilante tactics are necessary. There's not much plot toThe Boondock Saints--it's mostly a series of violent scenes in which the boys are partially ingenious and partially lucky. The movie seems to want to provoke debate about vigilantism, but the scenario is too implausible to stir any real controversy. The peculiar mix of earnestness and machismo will not appeal to everyone, but it's certainly unique and may acquire a cult following.--Bret Fetzer

I've heard allot about this movie over the last few years. This movie was nothing like it was advertised. It was at times very hard to discern what was going on and who was killing who and what was really going on in the film.            The Boondock Saints boast a cool and hip visual style that resonates with the best action films of the 80's and early 90's and some of John Woo's japan work before he moved to America. But even that can't save this film from …

I was first introduced to this movie by my sister and have loved it ever since.  I think the movie is really clever and entertaining.  I have seen it a bunch of times and still laugh out loud every time I watch it.  The actors do an awesome job creating believable, funny, witty characters.      Overall, the movie is awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested.  As much as I loved this one, I have to say I was pretty disappointed with …

A violent movie about two brother turned vigilantes. IT has a fantastic storyline, many funny moments and memorable characters. Makes you want to go out and do what the brothers do.

It's a great feeling when you rent a movie that it was actually worth getting. Especially when you find one that is completely under the radar. After countless times of seeing this movie on the shelf and on TV, I finally tell myself to watch it. Of course when I decide to watch it, it completely disappears from the TV stations so I have to spend a few bucks.         Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus play fraternal twins Connor and McManus. While having a drink …

The Boondock Saints has blindsided me, though not enough to realize its not perfect.    Haven't you ever been sitting around with some friends or family watching the nightly news, grimacing in disgust as low life child molestors or murdering crooks breeze their way through the system, eventually making their way back on to the streets. While you watched, did you have a passing thought or even verbalized what you would do if you could get your hands on the scum? The Boondock Saints …

I first heard about THE BOONDOCK SAINTS from one of my roommates last year. He had the soundtrack of the film (including the speech from the courtroom) downloaded on his computer and was playing it one night when I came into the room. I asked him about the music and then the movie. I became quite interested in the movie and rented it out the first opportunity I had.    THE BOONDOCK SAINTS is reminiscent of the films of Quentin Tarantino, both in violence and in creative, original, …
