The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (DVD Review)

Content Grade: B
Extras Grade: B

US Release Date: 9 March 2010
Rated R

It’s been ten years since we last saw The Saints.  Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) have disappeared from the public eye and are living the quiet life on a sheep farm in Ireland with their father (Billy Connolly) when they receive word that a priest has been brutally murdered in Boston.  Moreover, the priest has been posed in death and pennies placed over his eyes.  Someone is calling the boys out.  The only problem with the plan, their Da says, is that it worked.

Back in Boston, there are some familiar faces and some new ones.  Detectives Greenly (Bob Marley), Duffy (Brian Mahoney), and Dolly (David Ferry) are back on the case, unsure of where they’ll stand if their involvement in the courtroom climax of The Saints’ last spree were to leak.  They’ve got a new FBI lead on the case, too: Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz), a woman handed the torch by the late Agent Smecker (Willem Defoe).  When the boys arrive back in town, they’ve also got a new recruit: Romeo (Clifton Collins Jr.), a scrappy Mexican who’s also a big fan.

If you’re not a fan of the first film, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II: ALL SAINTS DAY isn’t going to pull out a wealth of new tricks to try to change your mind.  Fans will find a lot to love, and it’s apparent in every frame that this movie is meant for the fans.  The sequel mirrors the first film in much of its progression, ramping up the body count and cranking the film’s signature style up to 11.

Extras:

  • Commentary with Writer/Director Troy Duffy, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, and Billy Connolly
  • Commentary with Writer/Director Troy Duffy and Willem Defoe
  • Unprecedented Access: Behind the Scenes – Wherein Clifton Collins Jr. compares Troy Duffy to Fellini.  I kid you not.
  • Billy Connolly and Troy Duffy: Unedited
  • Merchandise/Games
  • Previews: HARRY BROWN (red band), DEFENDOR, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS
