The Boondock Saints (Troy Duffy – 1999) C+

I don’t know…I expected more from this since everyone seems to love it. It’s got it’s moments and it’s eccentric performance by Willem DaFoe, but overall it’s just ok. Too many problems for me to just gloss over and just appreciate it’s slick structure and cool shootouts (or ‘firefights’). Stuff like where did these brothers come from? How come they are so efficient at killing even though “they have no criminal record”? Their ‘dad’ coincidence? The DaFoe character’s decisions? Is this slapstick comedy or a serious drama? just to name a few.
