Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day
First watch this trailer for Overnight:
Ian and I saw an advance screening of Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day at the AMC.
Director Troy Duffy introduced his film by saying roughy "People on the internet like to trash Boondock Saints and they always say "I went to Film School, and Boondock Saints sucks because a), b), c)." and then Boondock fans scream FUCK YOU!"
He's kind of an asshole.
But Troy Duffy does know Boondock fans, and Boondock 2 is definitely for the fans. It delivers all the guns and vengeance required of the sequel to the 1999 cult direct to dvd crime thriller. Sure some of the dialog sucks, and it runs long, some shots are awkward, and parts don't make sense, but cut the guy a break, it's only his second film, he was in movie jail for 10 years.
So if your a boondock fan, more of the same isn't a bad thing.
Boondock Saints 2 is fun popcorn. Lots of shooting and guys getting shot. Like the first film, Toronto is Boston. But the best part for Canadians will be seeing Rob Welles, (aka Ricky) he has a fantastic cameo that proves he will find life beyond the Trailer Park Boys.
And Troy, if your reading this, I didn't go to film school.
