Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Charismatic young stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus play two Irish brothers, Connor and Murphy, who believe themselves ordained by God to rid the world of evil men. Their first killing is in self-defense; but after that, they start killing with devotion, gunning down a summit of the Russian mafia. Willem Dafoe plays a gay FBI agent (he listens to opera while examining crime scenes) who knows what the boys are doing but feels that their vigilante tactics are necessary. There's not much plot to The Boondock Saints--it's mostly a series of violent scenes in which the boys are partially ingenious and partially lucky. The movie seems to want to provoke debate about vigilantism, but the scenario is too implausible to stir any real controversy. The peculiar mix of earnestness and machismo will not appeal to everyone, but it's certainly unique and may acquire a cult following. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Not even my kind of movie... June 5 2004
Format:DVD
Upon receiving a recommendation for this movie, i was quite skeptical. I've never been a fan of movies with any remote relegious presence, and i've always HATED movies inwhich vigilante justice is a part of the plot. But for some reason, i LOVED Boondock Saints.
The acting is great on all parts, but Willem Dafoe is clearly the star of this movie. If you thought you were a fan before, you will fall head-over-heels in love with Dafoe in this role. His portrail of a gay, and very intellegent cop is both believeable and entertaining at the same time.
In terms of style, Boondock Saints is surprisingly well filmed, and concieved. For instance, they never show the crimes as the saints commit them, they're showed as Dafoe unravels them from the crime scene. Towards the end, in a moment of conceptual genuis, Dafoe apperes next to the saints, them actually shooting, Dafoe reinacting the scene for co workers.
Boondock Saints is sure to surprise audiences at how widly well recieved it is sure to be. After a few more viewings, i could see this becoming one of my favorite movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quintessential Cult Action Movie April 20 2004
Format:DVD
The Boondock Saints is one of the quintessential cult classic movies of this decade. When Russian mob bosses try to take the neighborhood bar, Irish Catholic Vigilants Conner and Murphy, Sean Flannery and Norman Reedus, fight back for the little guy and thwart the diabolical plot along with life long mate Rocco, David Della Rocco. But what do they do now? The answer is simple: make retribution a career. But when the FBI sends their best investigator, William DaFoe, to join the hunt along with two other mob families, our angels of retribution are in for the fight of their lives but without of course taking it too seriously. Lock and load for this light hearted, thought provoking, high action feature.
I really liked this movie because of the good story and the amusing characters/ dialogue not to mention the unbelievable action sequences. It truly does use all of the stereotypes of the traditional action movie to its advantage by making fun of them yet at the same time performing them. The two-narrator style works very well as well and I think that the whole thing is a blast because of it. The characters rule! The action is awesome! And I spent 25 bucks for the DVD willingly. Years later and I do not regret my purchase in the least. I would definitely say that this is a must own movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, disregard the naysayers! Nov. 14 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I just saw this movie on late night TV and went, straight away, to Amazon so that I might purchase it for my brother, and myself, for Christmas. We both love any flick with an Irish bent. I was so astounded by the bad reviews that I felt propelled to write one of my own. If your a left wing, movie snob who thinks everything Quentin Tarantino has done to be exceptional, (ie. Jackie Brown???) well then, perhaps you might find this movie offensive. Personally, I lean left myself, however, I found this movie to be extraordinarily well acted, the characters full and interesting and the plot intriguing. I am as Irish as the day is long, and I was not a bit offended by the plot. One reviewer deemed the movie "another black eye for the Irish" ; absurd observation. I'm not even necessarily a proponent of the death penalty and still, I loved this movie. At the end of the movie the "media" question "people on the street." I believe those who reacted adversely to the Saints, did so because they would have something to fear if vigilantism became widespread. Similarly, I believe that those who reacted badly to this film may have the same guilty fears. After all only those who are afraid of being judged would say "who are they to judge?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Independent Ideas May 17 2004
Format:DVD
The film "Boondock Saints" far surpasses most Hollywood productions from the outset simply by incorporating a plot different from the mainstream. Although the film contains the usual amount of violence and killing for an action movie, this film has the merit that the motive for the murders is very clear, and quite possibly justifiable. The social and moral questions raised throughout the film cannot help but elicit at least some critical thought. But don't worry about being forced to think too hard; the film is routinely punctuated by witty dialogue and amusing circumstances. The main characters, two selfless Irish brothers and a stray Italian, have delightfully good hearts and are endearing from the start. Willem DeFoe puts forth one of his best performances ever, adding creativity to his rough and tough character by portraying an extremely self-assured gay FBI agent who doesn't quite admit his sexual orientation to himself. His character is an excellent addition to the underlying religious theme of the movie as it pronounces the question of what purpose religion should serve, other than to provide moral direction. The film is a must see for anyone who wants to determine what is truly morally correct, as well as anyone who just likes to watch a couple of nice Irish lads following their calling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite April 9 2004
By JKI
Format:DVD
connor and murphy are good catholic boys that seem to get in an awful lot of trouble -well, scrapes (opening with a scene of them brawling with a new employee at their work - that the audience just wants to knock out as well). All relatively mild until the day they piss off the russian mofia and kill two would be killers. and get away with it. the brothers, then realizing how lucrative the killing of evil men can be (as well as morally just and right) begin a killing spree with their lack witted accomplice & friend, rocco - the funny man. enter il duce, the most feared killer of men in the world, just parolled from a foreign prison by the city's bad guys to kill connor and murphy. interspursed with scenes of willam dafoe as a smart fed working to catch them with the local cops- but himself caught up in the idea of their very direct justice.
This movie is appealing on many levels. The love between the brothers and their shorthand with each other is sincere as is their loyalty to those they consider theirs. it holds the movie together. The comedy is in almost every scene - even during a murder scene there are times when the brothers are arguing that I just wanted to laugh at the honesty in the relationship.
The extras on this DVD (the scene where they receive a phone call from their mother especially - both men have spectacular butts and the scene is really funny) is worth the price of the dvd.
