The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day

The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day is a 2009 film, the direct if not quick sequel to the original Boondock Saints movie from 1999. I like the concept and think these films are fun. I'll watch the 3rd installment if it gets made.


Slant Magazine gives it 1 out of 4 stars, opening its review with this: "In cinema as in life, the devotion inspired by cults can—like the Jonestown thirst for Kool-Aid—border on lunacy." Roger Ebert givs it 1 out of 4 stars and opens by saying it "is an idiotic ode to macho horseshite (to employ an ancient Irish word). It is however distinguished by superb cinematography." DVD Talk includes this in its "final thoughts":
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is not a particularly good film, but it is an entertaining tribute to the fans who made the first a cult hit. Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus return as Irish vigilantes the McManus brothers after they are framed for the murder of a priest. There is plenty of action and humor to be found
