It's on my Top 5 all time list since it first came out in 1999. Unfortunately, that's not the case, as this film lacks the smarts to satirize anything, let alone its own ineptitude. Apparently, vigilantism is popular in Romeo's family, as the uncle seems only to approve of his nephew once he's started killing criminals. I was unsure about the new addition of Julie Benz to the cast and still am not a fan of Eunice Bloom but Willem Defoe does make an appearance at some point. I'm not sure what this movie was trying to be exactly, a comedy what with the antics and ridiculous dialogue of the three stooges cops routine, a fantasy, a stylized shootout movie? This one is just embarrassing. Special shout out to Judd Nelson who brings a whole new meaning to overacting. The special agent seems to be written to be kooky, but is nothing like the spectacular character Defoe played, and comes across as annoying.
Duffy appears clueless on how to accomplish that this time out. While the plot is iffy, there is quite a bit more action shoe-horned into this one. I fell in love with the original Boondock Saints, and have watched it multiple times since. The humor, slow-motion gunfights, and light-hearted moments were back. The best part about this movie is that there is no recasting of characters, even after 10 yrs.
The rest of the soundtrack was awesome. I would recommend this to a friend. Ultimately I barely made it through this which was so disappointing after the cult classic awesomeness of the first movie. So I was very excited to see a sequel, but after a purchase and a viewing, I have to say that this is so bad to me, that it made me almost embarrassed to like the first film soooo much. The highlight here, of course, are the dual Desert Eagle handguns with extended barrels the brothers upgrade to near the film's climax.
This one feels like it was shot on sitcom sets. I would recommend this to a friend I love the first Boondock Saints and while the sequel was so-so I was hoping to return to it with this great set. Many people criticize Troy and the films themselves, some going so far as to say fans should go kill themselves. Synopsis For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. It may even encourage some to go see the first if they haven't seen it already, though this isn't all that likely. I would recommend this to a friend First, I totally agee with 'Boondock47's' comments, but I'll add some of my own. If you want to pick on someone, pick on the Twilight fans that think those movies are a real representation of love and vampire mythology.
There are really corny jokes, but they do make you laugh. However, when the elements are asked to occupy the same moment in time, they often tend to gang up on the dialogue, producing a lower-than-expected volume on character voices, which is then accompanied by bombastic elements from the sound effects, score or, horrible, horrible music cues. I am working hard to write anything else about this movie to make ten lines since I really thought it was awful and there are only so many ways you can talk about how terrible the lines, characters and lack of plot are. With the blame falling on the brothers they are out for bloody justice. As far as the additional footage is concerned, the benefit to the overall film is nominal at best.
Founded in April 2006, High-Def Digest is the ultimate guide for High-Def enthusiasts who demand only the best that money can buy. Duffy took everything that made the first film excellent and threw it right out of the window. Julie Benz and Clifton Collins Jr. The internet, where everyone thinks their opinion is fact, and everyone is a hardass. It was obvious one of the goals was to make this movie a bit more light-hearted than the last. Second let me say that I simply love the first installment of Boondock Saints. See, what made the three detectives from the first Saints funny was not the dimwitted, slapstick gimmick they had in this film, it was Willem Dafoe.
I like Tarantino's work, but he was not the first person to do the flashback narrative, dual wielding of pistols, slow motion gunfights, etc. When a priest is killed in Boston, the Saints return to find the killer and take out everyone involved. No, I would not recommend this to a friend I am a die-hard fan of the original Boondock Saints and found myself excited and let down all at the same time while taking in All Saints Day. I was very skeptical of Clifton Collins Jr. Terrific, cast, excellent production value given the relatively thrifty budget , and filled with more quotable lines. Where these characters from the first one seemed to be very natural and perfect in their element, the new cast members seem to be trying to make up for a lack of said characters, and it shows. In fact, almost all of the comedic elements fall so ridiculously flat 'All Saints Day' begins to suspiciously feel as though the director is satirizing himself.
Here, everything looks good, if not great. And I like a lot of these actors. To be blunt, I can't even believe this sequel is for real. Τα αδέλφια θα ταξιδέψουν στις ΗΠΑ, όχι μόνο για να καθαρίσουν το όνομα τους αλλά και για να βρουν τον άνθρωπο που τους το βρώμισε. I really wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone, even the die hard fans of the first film which i've probably watched over 20 times by this point.
It also just feels smaller and cheaper than the original. I got the first film on Bluray for X-mas which was great in anticipation of the sequel. After all, isn't the first purpose of film to entertain, and the second to create a message? My girlfriend and I watched this twice in one day. Good movie, I liked it. For the most part, each separate element comes through sounding clear, distinct and, on occasion, resonant. I would recommend first, of course, watching the two-disc Boondock Saints Truth and Justice Edition on Blu-ray that includes the Director's Cut and the theatrical version of the first film. As fans, we can only hope to see more of the Saints in the future.
Hell, even the obvious replacement for Rocco wasn't half bad. The movie keeps changing what it's really about. Dosn't really pick up until about half way through, and Clifton Collins Jr. Also, the Southern Accent was just atrocious. There isn't a single plot point that's credible or followed through on. It just tries so hard to be the same bad-ass movie that all the shootout scenes are in slomo and last 25-30 min apiece.
