Gripping, amusing, excellent action-comedy

"Mafiosos. Gettin' caught with twenty kilos. Gettin' out on bail the same fuckin' day.
And everywhere, everyone thinks the same thing: that someone should just go kill those motherfuckers."

Shot in a month on a scant $6 million budget, The Boondock Saints was crafted by a filmmaker who knew how to provide a hell of a lot of fun on a dime. Within the shell of a black comedy, w... read more

Overhyped

"The Boondock Saints" is an extremely over-hyped vigilante thriller that contains no depth beyond it's initial macho revenge fantasy, but, despite moments of painful camp, doesn't have the sense to go all the way as a comedy. It would better serve as a satire on America's obsession with Machismo posturing and the view that violence is the best way to solve problems than the self-important bloodbat... read more

The Best

Very few movies are written, acted, and directed so sharply. Troy Duffy takes the lid off of our nations laws, and its apparent futility in modern times. I watched the film in Cultural Studies in high school, as an example of how media effects our society. The opening moments don't prepare you for what comes up next and even though the action is quite bloody, there's a morbid sense of humor runnin... read more

Two Irish brothers accidentally kill mafia thugs. They soon start to see it as a call from God and start knocking off mafia gang members one by one. Willem Dafoe plays the FBI detective investigating the killings, but the closer he gets to catching the Irish brothers, the more he believes the brothers are doing the right thing.

"05.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Troy Duffy Violent, masculine, edgy, witty-dialogue, post-Pulp Fiction crime action film is probably one of my least favorite genres so I've avoided this film until now. And it's largely what I expected it to be (written above). It's also visually ugly and it suffers from some bad directing, terrible use of music and editing. What salvages it from being complete dreg is that it's energetic and thus fairly entertaining to watch, and - most importantly - the a"

"A couple of Irish hood brothers go on a divine mission of vigilantism. And Willian Dafoe is the FBI detective assigned to stopping 'em. That is, until he starts to find their actions kind of agreeable. And then finds himself dressing up like a woman. Which I don't find agreeable at all. Good solid crime flick that was entertaining to watch. Though I do still kinda wish I could unwatch the Dafoe in a dress part. BTW, I know that the pic above is from the second film, but it''s such a cool ima"

"Я об этом фильме когда-то давно слышал, но не помню, говорили мне о нём как о хорошем или как о плохом. Любопытная пародийная комедия."
