  1. …have no idea why we all love em so damn much.

    I was fortunate enough to see ‘All Saints Day’ in the theater, it was on a limited release and luckily they did not forget the mid-west fans all together.

    Did the movie have some plot issues, yes

    Did the movie have some acting and directing issues, yes

    and finally was it the best movie I have ever seen…no

    However, it was a funny, entertaining, enjoying, sometimes beautifully done movie that I would have loved to see more on the big screen. At today’s prices, having to drive 40 miles one way and it only being there for a short run kept me from going back a few more times.

    I cannot comment on the BluRay as it has not been released as of this writing, few months away yet. My best advice is for you to buy, rent, steal the first movie and after you watch it you will know which side of the fence you are on.

    I look forward to the outtake reel and seeing how many nods to other greats I missed, Spike Lee and Tarantino being two I remember catching.
    Rating: 4 / 5

  2. If you liked the first Boondock Saints, that means you have great taste in movies. The second is absolutely up to par with the first, and every bit as good. I cannot wait until this Bluray actually gets released!

  3. Just saw this movie at the theatre tonight and it is by far one of the best movies i’ve seen in a long time. The characters have real depth and the dialogue is well written and incredibly witty. The cast has great chemistry and the story unfolds at a very steady pace. Speaking of the cast there is certainly one cameo that’s in there mostly for the benefit of the Canadian fans of the film (The majority of the crowd would burst into laughter whenever he was shown on the screen) All in all this was an amazing movie with a very memorable ending which better result in a sequel which takes less than 8 years to come out.

  4. I’ll get right to the point here, because I know that if you’re actually looking at this movie, you obviously saw the first one, and if you’re reading the reviews, then you probably didn’t make it to one of the 10 theaters the second one came out in. So is it as good as the first one? Yes. I will elaborate on the things that stood out for me. First, it is lower budget than the original. This is noticable immediately by the way the cinematography looks like a made for T.V. film. It’s good cinematography mind you, beautiful shots, amazing direction, but you can just tell it’s a cheap camera or something by the way it looks when the camera moves. It doesn’t look like you’re seeing a change of scenery, it looks like a camera pan on the set of a TV soap opera. This isn’t as apparent as the action picks up, but right away you can tell it’s low budget, and that’s saying a lot compared to the first one. Other than that, everything lives up to the original, or surpasses it. It looks like all of the actors are having a lot of fun making the film, as you get a genuine sense that they are enjoying themselves every second of the movie. It’s funny, it’s action packed, and it’s a great continuation of the original. If you didn’t get a chance to see it in theaters definitely get this as soon as it comes out. I was lucky enough to see it in theaters, and I will be pre-ordering it as I can not wait to see it again. GREAT MOVIE. Thank you to everyone who decided it would be a good idea to film a sequel to The Boondock Saints. This is more than I ever expected to get.

  5. This movie has been getting a lot of backlash from the fans of the first movie. People are saying that “It wasn’t like the first one” or “It’s ten years too late”. I’m a fan of the first movie and I enjoyed this one immensely. Of course it isn’t like the first one, but 10 years too late? Not to me. Duffy gave himself a decade to make a followup to the cult phenomenon and, well, 10 years later, he gave is possibly the greatest sequel to the first movie one could ask for.

    Returning to the roles of the insanely badass McManus brothers are Sean Flanery and Norman Reedus, and boy, do they do great here. Also, in place of the lovable Paul Smecker is Julie Benz as Eunice Bloom, a sexy, funny, and smart FBI agent, who, in her words, is “so f–kin’ smart, she makes other smart people feel like they’re retarded” (she stays true to her word!). And also, Billy Connolly as the daddy, Il Duce. But, in place of David Della Rocco is Clifton Collins Jr. as Romeo, a HILARIOUS Mexican dude, whom, believe it or not, tops Rocco by a thousand! And believe me, the cast here is SPECTACULAR! Not a single disappointment.

    It is 8 years later. The McManuses are living a quiet life on a farm in Ireland, and the brothers (albeit with hilarious long hair and beards). One night at dinner, a priest comes in and gives them the news: They’re in trouble. A Boston priest has just been killed, and the killer had done all he can to make it look like the McManuses are responsible. Upon hearing of this, it’s time to shave the beards and cut the hair, and jump on the boat back to Boston. On the boat, they meet Romeo, a hilarious and quirky Mexican dude who is interested in joining them. After a rough patch, he joins them, and the minute they are off the boat, they are a team of three. Their goal is not only to get their names cleared, but to get their revenge on the person who killed the priest.

    However, while that is happening, Paul Smecker is gone and has been replaced by Eunice Bloom, a sexy, funny, and undoubtedly quirky FBI agent. Upon her investigation at the crime scene, she comes to the conclusion that the saints did not kill the priest. It was done by a member of the Yakavetta family, who also wants revenge: On the saints, for killing Pappa Joe. However, despite the cops’ and Bloom’s positions, they decide that they are just as in it to investigate the murder as The Saints, and worlds collide, with more chaos and action you can handle!

    I won’t give away more, because this movie is simply a must see. Basically, if you liked the first movie, you will like this one a great deal. It has the original brothers, who give great performances, it has tons of action, lots of blood, and is a great time at the cinema for sure. The movie is well paced and well filmed. It is easier to tell that it was shot on a higher budget than the original, which is a good thing, you can see it in the cinematography, you can see it in the effects and everything. In short, if you loved the first movie, go see this movie for sure. Duffy has managed to top the first movie in every way imaginable, which is a bold statement because the first movie was awesome too. But be sure to see this! Oh, and the ending. The ending is AWESOME, with a cameo from someone you may know of!

    IN TOTAL:

    Entertainment: 10/10

    Sex: 0/10

    Violence: 100/10

    Laughs: 10/10

    Action Fator: 100/10

    McManus Brothers: Every bit as badass as the first

    Romeo: Better be in movie three

    Julie Benz: Don’t worry, she’s great guys

    The Ending: Yes, there will be a third one, as the ending shows!

    Troy Duffy: Earns forgiveness, even after seeing “Overnight”

    Litres of Tomato Ketchup: A few grocery store shelves worth
