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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

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.

If you look through the reviews, you'd pretty much get people who either absolutely hated the movie, or loved it. I personally enyoyed it a LOT - in my opinion, the acting was, contrary to some reviews, great - think of the effort it would have taken to fill Willem Dafoe's shoes. He's spectacular; no one could ever have the same finesse for this role - which is by NO means easy - and something is wrong with the people that get offended from thinking the movie is just some big macho scheme. Some might find it at times, but not even Disney 'toons are politically correct and every film has at least some controversy. The controversy of this film is not on a GRAND scale, but it fits in with the movie great because the style is fresh and despite the events, it still manages to be humorous - thus there's some of everything and something for everyone. As an independent (and first time writer-director) film, everything fits in well. Besides, it costs what-even less than fifteen bucks. How could you pass this up? Get your head out of mainstream movies for just a little bit and give Boondock Saints a shot.

Though this film has outrageous violence and some effectively absurd humor, overall it is a failure.
The paper thin plot revolves around the doings of two Irish brothers who set out to clean up their town by killing people they see as evil. In this case, the victims are mainly members of the Russian Mafia. Trying to catch them is an annoyingly stereotypical gay detective (Willem Dafoe, who deserves better roles than this). His constant failure in catching the two "saints" starts to infuriate him, but it also makes him wonder whether or not what the two are doing is right.
"Boondock Saints" covers painfully familiar territory in it's tale of vigilante justice. Worst of all, towards the end of the film the director makes a left turn towards the moral question of whether killing is justified, even if the victims are evil. This theme has been explored before, and no new insights are given. There are more thought provoking vigilante moral questions in a "Punisher" comic for Christ's sake.
The film does have a good opening, and the performances (led by Dafoe) are charismatic enough. Go ahead and rent it if you're bored. Just don't expect anything new or intelligent.
