An enthralling gangster epic, a solid action film, and a jolting vigilante-justice crime caper.

The Boondock Saints, on one level, is a really great direct-to-video cult film. Stylish, defiantly endearing, and even borderline iconic.
April 25, 2019
The Boondock Saints has ended up a cheap looking B-movie that's pretentious, derivative, and sorely lacking a sense of fun.

Duffy created an unapologetically bloody, brutal and bizarre action film

Willem Dafoe's portrayal of the conflicted homosexual FBI agent is overacted to such an extent that it is hilarious, amazing and entertaining. His is an unforgettable character.

Satire or self-parody would be vastly preferable to the film's unironic endorsement of outlaw justice, but you'd be hard pressed to find anything resembling irony or subversiveness in this exercise in lovingly rendered ultra-violence.

Duffy's models are clearly snarky, ultraviolent Tarantino-esque crime pictures, but this movie's cleverness is never quite on a par with its bloodlust.

An embarrassing waste of time, and nothing even resembling the guiltiest of guilty pleasures...

[A] dim-witted, aesthetically clunky Tarantino clone.

It's one thing to make a film that's violent and profane; it's another to make one that's a moral black hole, and to do it because black looks cool. [Blu-ray]

More interested in finding fresh ways to stage execution scenes than in finding meaning behind the human urge for self-appointed righting of wrongs, pic is stuffed with effects that have no lasting impact.

Train wreck!

While I don't think the flick really has much of a brain in its head ... it sure isn't boring.

If you can't sit back and enjoy an entertaining popcorn flick like The Boondock Saints, then you'll probably never understand the difference between the movies and real life.
May 25, 2006
It taps into everyone's secret desire for vigilantism.
September 27, 2005
Definitely an exercise in style over substance.

It is, by turns, hilariously awful and just plain unhilariously awful, full of its own nonexistent momentousness, an unintentional parody of hardboiled gangster flicks.
