    Synopsis


    The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day
    Boondock Saints, the 2000 crime picture renowned for the unique story of the fast rise and fall of its egomaniacal filmmaker, Troy Duffy, as well as the cult following that appeared later on home release, gets the sequel treatment with this follow-up. Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus reunite as the vigilante MacManus brothers, with Billy Connolly returning as Il Duce. Duffy once again directs from his own script, with Clifton Collins Jr., Julie Benz, and David Della Rocco filling out the rest of the cast. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      Time to do some gratuitous violence...

      I fell in love with the original Boondock Saints, and have watched it multiple times since. It's just a blast. I got the first film on Bluray for X-mas which was great in anticipation of the sequel. Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day not only lived up to my expectations, but exceeded them. Terrific, cast, excellent production value (given the relatively thrifty budget), and filled with more quotable lines. The action is exhilarating and beautifully photographed and the screenplay is hilariously funny, but at the same time carries a suprising amount of dramatic heft. My girlfriend and I watched this twice in one day. It's that good. The Bluray disc sports a nice 1080p HD transfer that is superbly detailed. Textures, colors, contrast are all on point. A veneer of film grain renders even more detail, giving it it's film-like look. Blacks are inky and free from crush. No DNR or edge enhancement are evident. The soundtrack is fabulous with an excellent DTS HD MA 5.1 lossless recording. Powerful LFE and surprisingly good ambient and superb directional effects (you can almost feel the bullets whiz by your head) make this a must have for any BD fan. It you love the first and second films, invest in a BD player. The masters of both films are awesome.

      Enjoyable movie if you liked the first one...

      Overall this was an enjoyable movie if you were a fan on the first Boondock Saints movie. While the plot is iffy, there is quite a bit more action shoe-horned into this one....although that ins't necessarily a good thing. The characters, especially on the "bad guy" side of things were far too cartoonish in this edition, which kept me from getting fully engrossed in the story line as I had in the first one. It was obvious one of the goals was to make this movie a bit more light-hearted than the last...while it had more jokes, the delivery of them just didn't mesh well with everything else, so the comedy feels rather forced. Overall I'm still glad a bought the movie, if nothing other than a show of support for the amazing first movie. If you have not seen the first movie you MUST start there...otherwise this one will be a complete waste of your time.

      First let me admit that I am known to be overly critical of film, as I feel that the art of making movies has become more about the special effects and less about acting, script, and directing. Second let me say that I simply love the first installment of Boondock Saints. 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 quarky lines that were meant as humor, and the bad acting by all involved in the film, ( except for Bill Connolly, Double " D" Rocco, and Peter Fonda ), and the weak story line all add up to an extreme waist of your valuable time and hard earned cash. Please do yourself a favor and rent or stream this one, if you feel like you just got to watch it!!!

      I Love The Boondock Saints!

      I loved the first one. It's on my Top 5 all time list since it first came out in 1999. When I found out the 2nd one was coming out, I was stoked! I almost took a trip to LA because that was the only place showing it. I lucked out because they showed it here in the Bay. I saw it twice in theaters, Loved it, but not as much as the first one because this one killed off another great character and the funny lines were pushed too hard this time. In the first one they were more natural. But overall, if you're a fan of the first one, you should get this movie, it is an awesome follow up! Troy Duffy is a great director, can't wait for the 3rd one! Boondock Saints for life!!

      A huge disappointment

      Posted

      As a huge fan of the first film, I was surprised to see just how lackluster and predictable this movie was. Duffy took everything that made the first film excellent and threw it right out of the window. The plot was interesting enough, but unfortunately it was dragged way down by bad acting and writing. At some points it seemed like they were just trying too hard to get a cheap laugh out of the audience, and they threw in completely irrelevant dialogue and scenes. 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).

      Happy to see familiar faces, "sophomore" album

      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. The plot is good, with a lot of background on the boys' dad, yet the way the movie moves just didn't grab me like I expected it to. It seemed like it tried too hard to match the original in terms of the balance between action, plot, and comedy and at times it really felt like they just reached too high. It was pleasant to see they left it open for more follow-ups though. I'm anxious to see what the future brings for the Saints. I'll keep this in my collection in hopes that this is just the "sophomore album" curse, and that #3 (cross your fingers!) is more what I expected

      Twins Kicks some rear second time around

      Posted
      ConnorandMurphyLover

      The plot is involving, and engrossing. The twins pick up a new sidekick, which by the way I like a lot better than Rocco!!!! And it doesn't hurt that Connor and Murphy aren't bad to look at either. It is a little slow in the beginning, but when the action starts, it doesn't seem to want to stop!!!! And I mean to tell ya, they leave it wide open tor another sequel, which leaves this Boondock Saint obsessed fan, more than extremely happy!!!! So I can't wait to see Connor and Murphy in action again, minus Daddy, which of course is heart-breaking!!!! But this sequel lives up to the original, for once!!!! So let's hope they bring them back for a third time!!!

      Matches the original in every way

      IAmHam

      This movie takes every thing you loved about the original, pays homage to it, then expands upon it. Rocco has a speech that trumps every scene of his from the original, and even beats the court room speech. It makes u happy to be a man. It has a crazy twist in the last 10 minutes or so and the ending is completely open, making a third installment definite. Dosn't really pick up until about half way through, and Clifton Collins Jr. (awesome actor in most other decent roll's, check out Mindhunters) brings back his over the top vibe he had in The Rules of Attraction which can get a little grating. Still, a perfect sequel for any boondockian..
