The Boondock Saints

The Boondock Saints are Irish brothers Connor & Murphy McManus, meat packers from Boston. They believe that God has given them permission to rid the Earth from all human Evil and the film shows the brothers in action.

They are tracked by FBI agent Paul Smecker, who follows their trace of bloodshed, and admits that the brothers are doing exactly what he secretly always has wished to do.

The film is a great mix of action, comedy and drama and although there are some momments where suspension of disbelief is required, one can always admit that perhaps god has a hand in their antics - hey, it helped Maradonna!

William Dafoe is excellent as quirky detective Smecker and the brothers acting is a hell of lot better then their Irish accents. There is also an excellent cameo by Billy Connelly who plays the mysterious and deadly Il Duce.

All in all, the movie is a fun way to kill a few hours - straight forward storytelling with an original and appealing script.

I would give this 3.5 Angels out of 5.
