One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. Full of inside jokes and nods to the fans this is every bit as good as the first. I never knew about the Boondock Saints until I became a fan of Reedus. They massacre a bunch of unsuspecting Mafioso in a scene of absurd violence, then they let more blood in a mass killing of porn-shop customers. . Basic plot: Two Irish brothers, through a kind of vision from God, become a sort of modern day Robin Hoods, going after the nastier criminal element of Boston. Seriously, you won't regret either.
See the original, then get this one, too. The boys must return to Boston to not only clear their names but find the men who framed them. Furthermore I'm with opinions yes this review is an opinion per-say, but no I did not like this film thats just me. Some scenes are better, but the humor in the first is missing in this one. Finally gave up and ordered it.
For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. Storyline: For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. His replacement, Julie Benz, was such a shock that it took a couple of viewings for me to really appreciate her. The acting, the occasional humor, the action and the script for both these very underated movies is just wonderful. And I join the public outcry by begging for a 3rd, please. I have no other way to put that. I am multi-talented Kansas author Jae Byrd Wells and I approve of this movie.
When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by the mob, the brothers return and. The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce Billy Connolly. The film is the continuation of the cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery. I've heard talk of a third movie being made but if so, it isn't in production yet. Although I had seen it before I rented it for a 2nd view on Amazon prime, I plan to purchase this movie.
Ladies, the two lead characters - Connor and Murphy MacManus played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus - are drop-dead gorgeous, irreverent, funny, have an excellent - and typical - relationship, and everything else positive. Brothers Conner and Murphy MacManus take to performing their divine duty against the Russian mob. You'll find it very hard to believe when you see the camaraderie between these guys. Different look and feel in a lot of ways buit if you go in with the belief that you are willing to see a different movie and not a continuation of the exact same one, you might really love this also. Didn't know how bad it was and didn't want to accept what my friends were saying on how bad this movie was, since I love the first one. I'll rewind and watch it again because I love watching Connor jump down I know, it's a stunt guy , watching Murphy Norman Reedus run around gathering everything while that excellent score is playing, and then hefting Connor up to carry him out of the alley. Could not keep me in interested at all.
One of the problems with reviews is telling how much you like or dislike, and why, without giving away too much of the plot. My son will typically fall asleep before we're through both of them. They then see it as a calling by God and start knocking off mafia gang members one by one. The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest. The wonderful Willem Defoe is in the first movie.
Now I see why fans are clamoring for a third installment! Willem Dafoe plays the detective trying to figure out the killings, but the closer he comes to catching the Irish brothers, the more he thinks the brothers are doing the right thing. A friend recommended the first movie so I watched it and loved it! Watched it several times on cable but could never find this second movie anywhere. The brothers, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus are perfect for the roles, as is their father, played by Billy Connolly. I love them both and I can't watch one without also watching the other. While I don't really care to talk about two movies in one review, it is necessary in this case. I laughed, cried and mourned the characters when I was programmed.
Do not waste your time on this, trust me! Where the first one was great, this one was just awful. One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. The extras are also fantastic and if you have seen my reviews before, I love really good extras. I have made some friends promos to give it 20 minutes and by the end of that 20 minutes, I could put down my guns and we could all enjoy the rest of the film. It's said they didn't know each other before the first movie.
