Excerpt: I see why this is a cult classic now. Great performances from Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus and an interesting plot that doesn't take itself too seriously. I thought the video and audio on this release was pretty good. There are some good supplements, two audio commentaries and a nice retrospective that looks at the impact of the film.
Excerpt: i was recommended this movie from a few friends a couple years back, so i recently picked this blu-ray up for about $12 and finally just got the chance to watch it and all i have to say is this is easily the worst movie i have ever seen. why do people like this movie ? i dont understand are you supposed to watch this drunk ? everything about this movie is bad the script, the directing, the editing, the music and most of the acting too.
Excerpt: Another great "shoot 'em up" action movie, only this time I thought the writer and director did an exceptionaly great job. Good acting, well written and with an ending that you can feel good about. I've heard a lot of good things about this movie and now after finally seeing it I can see why. As for the picture quality here, yes, it is an older movie and that definitely shows throughout but even so, I thought this one looked absolutely amazing.
Excerpt: This has got to be one of the best blind-purchases I ever made. The movie is downright original and exciting; its story is well-made and interesting; the characters are excellent; the photography is excellent; the production design is quite slick; there are loads of great shoot-out scenes; and the music rocks. It gets weird and very violent in some parts, but I think that's all part of this film's charm.
Excerpt: As you can see from other reviews above me, This is the story of two Irish brothers living in South Boston, MA. While out celebrating St. Patrick's Day at their local pub, a few Russian Mobsters decide to come and ruin the party. Well, from here on out the brothers, along with their mob flunkie, Rocco, decide it's time to make all those who have sinned pay their debts. The PQ is the best it has ever looked, a definite upgrade from either the standard DVD or the SEDVD.
Excerpt: I consider myself a serious movie goer, but I must admit that I had never heard anything about this cult classic until resently. I read the reviews all over the internet, and the majority were praising this film in one way or another. For that reason, I did a blind buy of the movie. After the first 15 minutes or so of watching this flick, I truly thought that I had wasted my money, but soon after things started picking up.
Excerpt: I went and purchased this movie today, after hearing so much about it and how great it is. I will say I did not love it as much as the people who told me i have to see it. That does not mean it isn't a good movie because it is a good movie, just not what i was expecting after hearing all the praise about this movie from my friends. The characters, along with the story are very interesting. The PQ is up to par in my opinion along with the audio also.
Excerpt: A good transfer, only occasionally does the audio have anything worth noticing (there's mostly dialogue) but it a vast improvement in sound over the DVD. The theatrical cut looks better, the directors cut looks way too dark and lacks details in a painfully noticeable way. A must buy for fans, a great purchase for those who've never seen it but enjoy movies like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Lucky # Slevin.
Excerpt: Ive been waiting for a long time for one of my favorite movies to come to blu-ray. This film is fun and exciting. The love between the two brothers always gets to me and makes me call my brother up and say " I love You" now lets go take care of business lol!
Excerpt: I was very excited when I found out this title was being released. I had hoped to pop it in and watch my favorite cult movie with great picture clarity and quality. while it not the most impressive blu-ray transfers i've ever seen i was very happy to find out that the letterbox format which my special edition dvd release I bought back in 2007 had been upgraded to 2:35 widescreen format for us with hdtvs to watch without those bars at the side and bottom of the screen.
