"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

"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

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.

Few good scenes in an overall awfulness.

“This movie is a great example of good concept done badly, it even crossed the barrier to be a movie with great overall potentials but again with terrible execution, while it isn't the most original idea in the world, the concept of revenge is the most overused thing in the action genre, but this movie makes it really appealing, as two brothers kill two members in the Russian mafia as a self defense and when the police set them free, they decide to fight all the bad and the evil in the world, meaning that they take a religious turn and go with it, which makes it really interesting.

The movie seemed interesting, for example, the two brothers Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus, they look Bad-Ass enough to play this role, they have tattoos and looks really good, but then they sta” 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 bloodbath it becomes.

I'm not adverse to revenge movies, even extreme ones. "Taxi Driver" featured Travis Bickle blowing away pimps and thugs, but it was more of a character study than a vigilante movie. "God Bless America" trivialized violence, but it was a satire, and a good one at that. "Dead Man's Shoes" was a powerful statement on the consequences of violence.

"What a great movie this is , a set of Irish Boston twins accidentally knock off a couple of mafia thugs and become heros , they see this as a religious calling and set forth in an Angels of death fashion to rid Boston of all the bad guys with increasingly bizare and complicated assasinations. Willem Dafoe is perfectly cast as a slightly dysfunctional demented homosexual but non the less brilliant FBI agent who becomes tasked to track the killers down but finds the closer he gets to them , the mo"
