[Movies] The Boondock Saints

https://i.imgur.com/NlrSYoJ.png

Two Irish Catholic brothers become vigilantes and wipe out Boston's criminal underworld in the name of God. - IMDb

This is one of those movies that caught me by surprise. The Boondock Saints was released in 1999 before Normal Reedus became a living legend in The Walking Dead.

Two religious brothers are fed up with organized crime in Boston and decide to handle it on their own. Not being particularly skilled, what follows is sloppy and chaotic vigilante justice.

The movie follows Connor & Murphy MacManus as they dish out their own justice. While the movie is described as an Action, Crime, and Thriller, some scenes had me laughing my ass off.

The brothers accidentally kill mafia thugs who try to pressure a local establishment they frequent. Being upstanding Christian citizens, they turn themselves in and are quickly released without charges. The MacManus brothers feel this is a sign from God and decide to seek out organized crime members and take them out.

This movie is filled with action and violence and no effort was made to tone down these scenes. The movie is rated R and it earns this rating in spades. This movie was built on grit and blood.

I found myself quickly becoming sympathetic and rooting for the MacManus brothers as they delivered justice in a poetic style.

William Dafoe plays a famous FBI Special Agent called in to investigate the string of murders. William Dafoe has given performances that leave you in awe, but this one is like no other. William Dafoe plays a gay FBI agent with an uncanny awareness of crime scene investigation. Interestingly, both Robert De Niro and Kevin Spacey were considered for this role. I can't imagine anyone else playing the role of Special Agent Smecker.

While the story behind this movie is fantastic, what really makes the movie shine is the raw grit in the shoot out scenes. Make no mistake, there is a lot of shoot out scenes in this 1-hour and 48-minute movie.

While the movie has a 7.8/10 score on IMDb, it has a measly 22% on Rotten Tomatoes.

A juvenile, ugly movie that represents the worst tendencies of directors channeling Tarantino. - Rotten Tomatoes

While I usually put more stock in Rotten Tomatoes rating than IMDb, they got this one wrong. If I was going to rate it myself, I would put it right around the 7.8 IMDb score given.

Billy Connolly makes an epic appearance in the last half of the movie and kills it playing the role of a legendary hitman sentenced to life in prison. After the MacManus brothers take out key players in the local Mafia, they call in Ii Duce to take them out. Ii Duce has never failed to take out his mark.

The Boondock Saints is a light-hearted action movie based on two antiheroes that you can't help but root for. This movie will keep you on your toes all the way up to the ending credits.

    Don't like themarkymark either? This bot downvotes everything themarkymark posts. Help by delegating:

    5 | 10 | 20 | 50 | 100 | 500 | 1000

    Unvote themarkymark for witness here


    "I've never seen anyone leave such a long trail of blazing dumpster fires. I now believe the wreckless downvoting and blacklisting of thousands of accounts by themarkymark et al is the SOLE reason the price of Steem continues to fall. I didn't even make the photo for this post. That's right, I found it online. Fucking amazing."

    Look at all these complaints from people all over the Internet

    Most of these are written OFF of Steemit so as to avoid being downvoted and hidden. Amazing. So much for this "censorship-free blockchain".

    themarkymark Hey. Sorry about your shit coin...

    Groups of people and a top witness (themarkymark) are trying to dive me off of steem/steemit by harassing me

    Getting blacklisted (by themarkymark) becomes expensive on Steem

    My Letter to @themarkymark - in response to his continual flagging of my account

    Harassment and Censorship by themarkymark continues. Now flagging everything I post for no reason

    Crooket @themarkymark

    @themarkymark, another fake account that flags without reason, like the berniesanders whales circle jerk

    Another example of censorhsip on steemit. Witness (themarkymark) downvotes truth about his actions.

    Big Thanks For ThemarkyMark, Anyx, Patrice and Others Who Helped Ruin Steemit

    Open letter to those who provide Red Flag with downvotes

    My Post About Asian Countries Being the Largest Ocean Polluters Was Downvoted By Badcontent. WHY?

    Hi, welcome to TripleA and thanks using the tag aaa and for your review.

    If you had the chance to have a look at https://www.triplea.reviews/ , which is the platform for TripleA based on the Steem blockchain, you may see that the order of data is different from what you normally see at Steemit.

    To be able to achieve it, we need a few more information at the end of your review, which is the moviedb link and your rating.

    Example

    • Movie URL: https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/xxxxx-thisisamovie
    • Critic: A

    Leaving also a short introduction to our community guideline and wish you a soft landing at TripleA.

    One of the important part is, that we normally curate reviews that have the required DB link and critic.

    Wish you a lot of fun~.

    Guess I'll have a coke, then. So many classic lines. The bartender mixing up his proverbs; gold.

  • @davedickeyyall

    This is a great movie, however, the sequel sucks

  • @blewitt

    When you mentioned that this one kinda took you by surprise, I had the same experience. When I first watched it I was kinda just expecting an “ok” action film but it developed into a cult classic for me.

    I love being surprised by a film...basically going in with 0 expectations and then being either blown away or at least really enjoying it. I had the sane experience with District 9 and Zombieland. 2 movies I saw on video much after release...wasn’t expecting much...and I loved both.

    No not yet. I have the AMC A-List which allows me to see 3 films a week. I usually am a total loser and max it out weekly but currently am caring for one of my pups who needs extra care. Haven’t been to a movie in 2 months so I’m missing lots of stuff currently. Weak!

    Nice review.

    This movie is very good and the cast ensures that the script goes deeper and deeper into the making of the story.


    I would like to take this comment to have the opportunity to present you a movie contest that I created (and I already got TripleA project support, which offered visibility and great awards): https://steemit.com/contest/@wiseagent/for-your-consideration-01-favorite-directors-or-a-movie-contest-sponsored-by-me-and-the-triplea-project .

    Could you help in any way? Resteem, Upvote... My intention is is to let more users know about the contest and accumulate more earnings (to suddenly increase the final prize).

    Thanks in advance, @themarkymark!
