The Boondock Saints has ended up a cheap looking B-movie that's pretentious, derivative, and sorely lacking a sense of fun.

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!

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.

Visualmente interessante, o filme se corrompe ao fazer apologia da "justiça com as próprias mãos". Ainda assim, a atuação de Dafoe merece ser conferida.

It does the job, but doesn't do a very good job of it.

From this cast, you'd expect better, but it's mostly just a redundant Tarantino wanna-be.
August 26, 2002
A ridiculous, self-important amalgamation of rehashed macho posturing and slow-motion bloodletting. Do yourself a favor: do not attend a convocation with these Saints.

Duffy has made a film that sort of straddles the fine line between great movie and useless piece of garbage.
