Directed by Troy Duffy

Release Date: October 30, 2009
After ten long years, The Saints are back! When you thought you'd never get the opportunity to see what would be after the credits ran on the 1999 cult classic, director/screenwriter Troy Duffy brings back the McManus brothers and their vendetta against the mobsters of Boston. By now, you've probably seen numerous negative reviews bashing BDSII, saying that it's "stale, cliched, one-dimensional" and so forth: Well, rejoyce my Boondock fanatics, as those complaints never came across my mind while I enjoyed a sequel that revels in over-the-top action, raunchy humor, and scheming villains just as much as the first film. And, as this film becomes a love letter to the fans, you'll find numerous references to the first film, such as Connor's devotion to bringing rope on a job or getting to see long dead Rocco (David Della Rocco) as the Brothers' guiding spirit from beyond the grave. If you're a fan of the first film, Equilibrium, or Hard-Boiled, you'll get a kick out of The Boondock Saints II: All Saint's Day.

Rating: * * * * of 5
