Critics Reviews

The Onion (A.V. Club)
As written and directed by newcomer Troy Duffy, The Boondock Saints is all style and no substance, a film so gleeful in its endorsement of vigilante justice that it almost veers (or ascends) into self-parody.

Variety
More interested in finding fresh ways to stage execution scenes than in finding meaning behind the human urge for self-appointed righting of wrongs, (the film) is stuffed with effects that have no lasting impact.

Worth 2 hours of your spare time
This film is entertaining and funny. The plot doesn't develop well, and is a bit stupid, especially towards the end but as you watch it you enjoy the scenes for themselves. In this kind of film it's the characters that make the movie interesting...

It is so-well-made!
Pleasure to watch. Scenes are totally complete. Many times I was thinking to myself "Yes! That's the perfect moment to end this scene!" And it was weird, I never noticed this kind of thing in other movies. Actors did their job perfectly as well...

Another 'cool' film
This film, like films from Guy Ritchie, Quentin Tarantino, and others, is a stylish film about criminals. In this case they are 'saints', but thematically it's identical. Unlike the aforementioned directors' works though, I didn't find this one to...

Why couldn't I give this film the 5 or even 4 stars that most reviewers gave it? Well, this movie certainly has moments of 4 or 5 star power, but it's fundamentally flawed at a number of places. For starters (warning - spoiler), after chasing the...

The Boondock Saints is a highly stylized, tightly wound action thriller about two brothers who become vigilante justice killers. That is about the whole plot right there, with a little religious symbolism thrown in for good measure. What makes the...

Finally got around to this one. Its not bad, but I dont think it deserves all the praise it tends to yield. Its a cool movie but it looks like a TV movie as far as the lighting is concerned. It is a solid first feature, its too bad Troy Duffy ended...
