Conclusion: Sony's re-release of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day contains a lengthier director's cut and a couple of new supplements. Die-hard fans will definitely want to double-dip for the new footage and bonus features. This is also the current definitive release, and anyone who has put off buying the film should definitely choose this one over the older one, unless for some reason a BD-Live logo, different previews, a Portuguese language track, or two fewer extras are...
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day Blu-ray Review
11 March 2010
Excerpt: The Film Usually sequels come out because a film was a smash hit in one form or another, but in this case most viewers probably never even heard of the original film. While a cult classic, The Boondocks Saints didn't exactly knock 'em dead at the box office, but that doesn't mean that this sequel requires viewing of the previous film.
Excerpt: If you hated the first installment of a movie, hated to the point where you would rather forget you ever saw it, can a sequel with expanded character development pull you around? Maybe a 10-year break between the original and the sequel would give some time for all involved to spruce up the material and learn from their mistakes? Nope. Not when you are dealing with The Boondock Saints .
Excerpt: Cult audiences have been responsible for the resurrection of movies ranging from Vertigo to The Big Lebowski , but even they get it wrong sometimes. If movies are a religion, the fervent following of Troy Duffy’s po-faced vigilante thriller The Boondock Saints is akin to Scientology, an opaque sect whose beliefs are utterly unintelligible to outsiders.
Conclusion: Filmen: Enligt exakt vilka fans är denna skräpfilm till och med "bättre än originalet"? Fansen till Allsång på Skansen? Fansen till Epic Movie? Fansen till Reine & Mimmi i fjällen? Fansen till Roland Cedermark? En sak är säker. Det är i alla fall inte fansen till den första Boondock Saints-filmen som sagt något så urbota korkat som citatet gör gällande, så antingen ljuger man på filmfodralet eller så har man helt enkelt noll jäkla koll på hur verkligheten ser ut.
