Live From The Boondocks

  • Feb 18, 2008
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 at the local bar the two and a few buddies run into some problems. Apparently, the bars owner is being forced by the Russian mob to sell the property. When the mob comes to have a chat they soon find that the brothers aren't heaving it. They ask the men to leave nicely but they refuse to go and start a fight. Next thing you know two bodies show up outback of the bar. After some thought and a few more bodies the two think of an idea. They get their guns and become vigilantes. They are going after every corrupt and villainous man in Boston.

With the help of their buddy who was a package boy for the Italian mob they plan to bring down everyone. "The Boondock saints" is certainly not hard to throw a five star rating on. I'll get to all the good stuff first. The overall feel of the movie is amazing, the pacing and camera work are very well done. I believe the script could've been a tad bit better but it still works. Flannery and Reedus were both on point but what made the movie better was that they had a great supporting cast. William Dafoe was sick as agent Smecker and I don't think anyone else could've played him that well.

The chemistry between the actors completes the film. Because they seem like they are truly these characters it gives the movie that extra bit of realness. If anything I didn't like the way some scenes were filmed. When it came time for the action scenes, the action sounds went completely away. It was replaced with music, which may be okay for some but not me. It's nothing to take a star away for but it's just my personal preference. I like the feeling and rush you get when you hear the explosions and shootouts. What more can I say? The movie is on point and even better it has a sequel coming soon. Also, the picture is sound quality were awesome on this improved DVD and it is well worth it.
