The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is the much-anticipated sequel to the indie cult classic, The Boondock Saints. The film is the continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV’s “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!
Luke W: the first time i was brought into the holyness that is the boonedock saints, was when i decided to pull an all nighter with my cracka deluxe BLAKE!!! and we rocked out the rock band, the halo, the nazi zombies. just wen on an all night game spree poppin the bad guys like there was no tomorrow!!! so its around 5 am. and he says lets watch the saints! i having never ssen am very excited. needless to say after an hour or so of the wolrds greatest movie, and yelling and cheering on my new favorite characters egging them on and all full of rage when the FUNNY MAN!!! got capped by poppa joe.. i have now seen this movie around 20 times since then, and while pulling late nights in college continue to quote the movie and play out scenes and talking with my irish accent. and my question was used in the interview with norman reedus, i believe this would make a great addition to my already adorned room with saints posters!!!
Mireille M: Discovered Boondock Saints because I am a long time fan of SPF (since his days playing Young Indy). I’ve made friends with so many great people as a result of watching Boondock Saints.
Matt N: Boondock Saints was a guaranteed rental at Blockbuster which was sold out, I got my ticket and returned a few days later. Thinking I was only getting a free movie, I was thankfully, completely wrong. It was an amazing movie. I watched it twice that night and everyday for a week after that. I searched out and found a boondock saints community online, to share my love with others. The community was one of the first with ties back to some of the original movie crew. We had occasional conversations with Troy. I even got a personalized, autographed copy of the original script from Troy. To this day, I share this movie with everyone, and gleefully show off my script.
Caitlin H: I discovered The Boondock Saints the same way every other fan did. It was passed on to me by my best friend and I can never thank them enough for introducing me to the film. It’s one of my favorite memories with my friend. Just sitting there watching a badass flick. Boondock Saints didn’t necessarily change my life because I always secretly wished people could cut through the red tape bullshit and get shit taken care of like the Saints did, but it did change my view on what makes a truly good film. I love film in general, but nothing has ever compared to my admiration for The Boondock Saints. It’s had all the odds stacked against it from early on, and still managed to become an unstoppable indie cult hit… And ten years later, it continues to spread! I’m so proud to be a Boondock fan and to be a part of the reason a second one has been made… The Saints are coming!
Heather: I was at a friend of mines house one night and he popped the movie in. That night I did not get to watch it all because I had to go home. The thing is, the movie still stuck out in my head and I was determined to buy it so I can see the rest. Once I finally got my hands on it, I’ve been in love ever since!
Lara: A Video Shepardess I was, Oh Gee, My Lord I was bored… No I won’t really rhyme my storey with the BDS Prayer. But I ‘will’ tell you I was the 1st employee at my local Video Store to view it & because I loved the VHS cover. After having seen it, I told everyone & I mean EVERYONE it was the best Family/Action Film I’d ever seen, it blew Tarantino & Ritchie out of the water!! With the Script & Acting..& I raved about the Editing which was sublime. Ever since then it’s been a bit of a litmus test. If you’ve seen it & love it. You’re Aces. If you haven’t-I plop you down & a bunch of us watch it with you..it’s like a Cult, we just don’t have ‘Watchtower’ Booklets & Tattoos to hand out to believers. If you don’t like/get it…I usually suggest therapy & a huge list of films to view before you step foot out your front door, because you shouldn’t be seen in public, you’re liable to go postal from your severe case of ‘Jagoffitis’. In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti. Amen. P.S. Awesome contest idea & timing-since it’s so close to the ‘actual’ Catholic All Saints Day-it just seems so appropriate, I’m so amped up for BDS2:ASD & can’t wait to see it!
