Slick and stylish all the way through. The camera techniques are a wonderous sight to behold. A solid spiritual story with great intentions, that is left open for a continuous story. There is a lot that could be improved and characters need much more development, because a lot of...

One of the most overrated movies of all time. Horribly shot that so desperately wants to have a Tarantino feel without the wit and entertainment. Acting = horrible. Action? Non-existent. Cinematography was ugly as hell. Screenplay was horrendous.

Think back to the early 1990s. During this time, there was a man by the name of Quentin Tarantino who made to crime films that changed everything in terms of cinema. Those films were Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Due to the success of those films, it is bound that someone wil...

This movie reminded me of Tarantino's, where it knows its a movie and every scene knows its a scene and wants to put on a good show for us. But really, Troy Duffy alienates people (women and minorities) in a way Tarantino never has in the movies I've seen. Willem Dafoe and his ch...

I understand the appeal to the masculine sensibilities: Rogue Catholics taking down the scum of Boston, guns blazing, chased by an FBI agent played by none other than Willem Dafoe, one of the greatest bad asses of our time. This just seemed like pure dumb luck on the part of Troy...

The Boondock Saints is a sleek, stylish film that relies too much on being sleek and stylish. Mostly, this film reminds me of the the days when other filmmakers were jacking off to Quintin Tarantino and produced trash like Smokin' Aces, not realizing that Tarantino...

I know I am not the target audience, but I LOVE this movie. I can quote it entirely.
AC rating: Troy Duffy might have an ass-like reputation, but he still made interesting and insightful aspects of the whole production.

I just love love love this movie. I saw it for the first time when it first came out, and yet again just recently. I find it totally hysterical, and very cool. I can't believe that it took them 10 years to do the follow-up one, cuz it was quite clear at the end that there was goi...
