Film.com Review: Boondock Saints 2 a Nice Reunion

Nine years ago The Boondock Saints hit the scene with little to no fanfare. But the film found its audience on DVD and over the years has become somewhat of a cult classic due to its brutal action sequences and religious social commentary. By popular demand, writer/director Troy Duffy and the Saints have returned in The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. But will the sequel reach its predecessor's cult status, or will it be just another lackluster sequel?

The MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery) are living the quiet life in the lush green pastures of Ireland until word of a setup involving a priest's murder in their old neighborhood prompts them to ... READ MORE

Boondock Saints Homeless Film Extras




Two homeless guys talk about their experience as film extras on the set of Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.

Cast: Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus. Filmed by Paul J Alessi - Boondock Saints II : All Saints Day coming soon: www.boondocksaints.com

Cinematical - Interview: 'Boondock Saints II' Director Troy Duffy

The MacManus brothers are back with guns blazing in the long-awaited sequel to The Boondock Saints. The Saints are living in Ireland with dear old dad (Billy Connolly) when they get word a priest in Boston has been killed in a way that sets them up to be the fall guys. Long-haired and bearded from the Irish winters, they shed their hair (and their clothes) to head back to Beantown to set things straight. They're joined by a new Saint, Romeo (Clifton Collins Jr. with a sweet mullet), along with the trio of cops from the first movie. And although the unforgettable FBI Special Agent Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe) is nowhere to be found, Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz) is on the case, full of piss and vinegar just behind that sweet Southern smile.

Who's behind the ... READ MORE

Super Dudes Power Squad - A Night Out with The Saints: A Review from a Crazed Fan

Oct. 22nd was the Philadelphia Screening of Boondock Saints II : All Saints Day. I was lucky enough to get a pass to attend the screening and see a film 5 years in the making. It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the first film, which I never heard about until my friend Charlie pulled me aside and said, ” You have to see this movie”. Needless to say the rest is history. I own two copies of the film (the regular version and the collector’s edition), It’s a personal tradition to watch Boondock every Saint Pat’s with a pint of Guinness. If someone tells me that they haven’t seen the film, I make them watch it. I don’t care if you’re on your way to your grandmother’s funeral, you will sit down and watch this from start to finish, I’m sure someone will put the burial on YouTube.

So when I heard about the sequel, I went apeshit (the highest quality of apeshit–not the store brand). Tracked down the status of the sequel which would change in ... READ MORE

Movie Crypt's Review of Boondock Saints II

A sequel is generally expected to provide more of the same, but every so often, a fresh installment not only meets but exceeds the original. For fans of the original underground hit, the sequel we were all wishing for has arrived.

Word has reached the shores of Ireland that a priest has been killed in Boston, Massachusetts. What is most unusual about the heinous crime isn’t so much the act itself as to the way it was done; the murder follows the modus operandi of the legendary “Saints” killers who have been missing since publicly executing a mob boss. It’s obvious that whoever perpetrated the crime did so with the knowledge that it may well bring the Saints back to U.S. soil for bloody vengeance, but there’s one fatal flaw in the assassin’s plan: it’s going to work.

Like many, my first experience with The Boondock Saints was long after any theatrical run. With no knowledge of the sorted history bringing this film to the big screen, it was a feast of memorable characters, stylized violence, and twisted humor tied together by a... READ MORE

Movie Viral: The Boondock Saints: 10 Year Anniversary

They say the best form of viral is word of mouth. Long before money was spent on creating campaigns and websites, the best way to get people to know about your movie was to make a movie that people wanted to know about. A film that people wanted to talk about. A film that people WANTED to tell their friends about. A film that earned the title of a cult classic.

Boondock Saints II: Get Ready for some gratuitous violence

musicc's Full Review: The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

If you saw The Boondock Saints and enjoyed it and you haven’t heard of the sequel, then you need to go see it. I liked the first Boondock Saints, it wasn’t a great masterpiece like some people paint it out to be, but it was a fun, enjoyable, violent film with a sharp sense of humor. All of the qualities that made the Boondock Saints such a great movie are not lost in the sequel, if anything they are played to greater effect and are more realized. I think the first Boondock Saints was kind of a fluke, Troy Duffy had no experience, nothing film related on his record, but he wrote the script and Mirimax picked it up, after almost fu*king the entire deal, he finally got it made and released, where it failed (partially due to being released the same week as Columbine) but has achieved almost legendary cult status on dvd. Now, up until about two months ago, I was under the impression that this movie was never getting made, I had followed the news on this for about three years and all signs pointed to... READ MORE

The Flick Cast: Review: ‘Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day’

Not many people know this, but the first Boondock Saints film barely even happened. After a one week run in five theaters, the film was released on DVD… and embraced by a massive cult following. A sequel was always promised and showed up on IMDB years before production had even begun, but after a while, fans started to doubt that we’d ever even see another installment. Now, ten years later, Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day happened, and thank the Lord it did... READ MORE

Creating a cult classic: Scene interviews Troy Duffy of 'The Boondock Saints'

The Irish Catholic, vigilante killers of “The Boondock Saints” are back — and they paid a visit to Catholic Disneyland, too. The film’s creator and one of its stars visited Notre Dame’s campus Tuesday evening for several events to promote the release of the new movie.

A lucky 200 students got to see “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,” the sequel to the 1999 cult classic. Tickets for the free Tuesday night showing at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center’s Browning Cinema were snapped up instantly, but an overflow of campus enthusiasm and online support convinced distributor Apparition to open the movie the South Bend-Mishawaka area this weekend.

The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and Student Union Board organized two informal discussion sections with the series creator Troy Murphy and one of the film’s actors, Sean Patrick Flanery. Following a... READ MORE

UGO - Troy Duffy Interview - Boondock Saints II

I feel like the default position of a lot of smart film enthusiasts is to hate Boondock Saints and to hate Troy Duffy. True, the documentary Overnight portrayed him as a raging cretin (more on this later) and the cult status of his film seems a bit random.

I enjoyed Boondock Saints in the late 1990s, but I enjoyed Suicide Kings and Search and Destroy, too. Good luck finding anyone with tattoos from those films or even posters of 'em up in frat houses.

VIDEO: Boondock Saints 2 makes its Maine premiere... http://ping.fm/c3bD6

WESTBROOK (NEWS CENTER) -- Ten years ago, a young screenwriter from Maine penned a movie that became an instant indi-cult classic, Boondock Saints. Now, director Troy Duffy is bringing back the McManus brothers for another go.

"Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day" made its Maine premiere on Monday night at the Westbrook Cinemagic. Hundreds of Boondock fans turned out to see the McManus brothers exact a little revenge on the Boston Mafia after the mob killed the brothers' priest.

On hand for the showing, was the movie's director, as well as a few of the stars, including Maine comedian Bob Marley, who brings back Detective Greenly, a wise-cracking cop. Governor John Baldacci was there too, declaring Monday "Bob Marley Day."

The path to making "Boondock Saints 2" was a long one for Duffy. He lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in the making of the original Boondock Saints, even though the film made more than 50 million dollars. Admittedly, Duffy says he was just a kid making a movie. Making the sequel was fulfilling because during filming he had all his focus on the fans.

"The first time we didn't have the fan base, we were just a bunch of kids running the asylum," said Duffy. "This time we had the fan base looming over that set. The Boondock fan bases isn't like any other."

Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day will open up across the state on Friday. The cast of the movie included Peter Fonda, Billy Connelly, and Maine-native, Judd Nelson.

Coming Soon's interview with Troy Duffy and the Boondock Saints

"I'm coming soon... I'm coming soon... don't move, don't move... Oh my God, you moved! Ahhh Ahhh!"

Yes, this interview begins with a rather adolescent take on our site's good name, and it ends with a laugh, so you know you're dealing with a filmmaker who knows how to have a good time.

That filmmaker is Troy Duffy, who became a household name in Tinseltown when Miramax paid the Boston bartender $450,000 to write and direct his debut film with a budget of $15 million dollars, making him the kind of rags-to-riches success story the media revels in. That was 1997. Two years later, the film had been completed for less than half that budget and without the participation of Miramax, who had pulled out due to creative conflicts with Duffy. The independent distributor who purchased the movie The Boondock Saints barely released it in theaters and it marched solemnly to the direct-to-video graveyard.

Typically, this is where the Wikipedia entry ends, possibly with addendums like "Troy Duffy has not been interviewed since 1999, and currently works as a bartender in Boston."

However, The Boondock Saints, like its main characters, was not a movie that simply lays down and dies and its director has not gone gentle into that good night. When "Saints" was... READ MORE

The Film Stage review of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

By the traditional definition The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is not a good movie, but as the last few years have taught us with films like Crank, Gamer, Crank 2, Bad Boys II, and most recently Ninja Assassin, sometimes that traditional definition does not apply. Writer/director Troy Duffy has delivered a film that packs a punch of stylized violence and offensive yet still comical (in their own sadistic way) one liners to make anyone who was already a fan of the brothers happy and anyone who was on the fence have an enjoyable experience with the movie. However, anyone who... READ MORE

ENVY interview with Troy Duffy and Norman Reedus



Back in 1999, first time director Troy Duffy brought the world Boondock Saints, a little movie about Irish-American fraternal twins who take it upon themselves to rid Boston of evil mafia gang members, all the while being pursued by the FBI. The film, which was an underground success through word-of-mouth, became an almost instant cult classic. Now, 10 years after the original release of the film, Boondock Saints gets its long awaited sequel. Even though Duffy has only directed two films, Boondock Saints and Boondock Saints II, both are two of the most cinematically perfect action films of its time.

Ty Stone's Thanksgiving Rocking Eve

The country rocker has had a big '09 and is ready to celebrate Wednesday night at St. Andrew's

This past year has been great for local country-rock singer/songwriter Ty Stone. In 2009, Stone sang at Comerica Park at Kid Rock's blockbuster summer shows, he's now rocking with a new band (thanks to his "Search For The Truth" reality show which aired recently on CW 50 Detroit), and he has a couple tracks featured in the new "Boondock Saints 2" movie.

Pegasus News: Movie review and talent interviews: Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

by John P. Meyer

If you pay too much attention to the big picture message and philosophical implications behind Troy Duffy's script for Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, you're likely to despise the film. Unless you're an advocate of vigilante justice.

If, however, you're jonesing for a spectacularly choreographed, artfully filmed shoot 'em up in the bloody tradition of Sam Pekinpah or John Woo, you will be delighted.

As those who've seen the first Boondock Saints are aware, that film was light on female roles, but in his long-anticipated return to Boondockville, director Duffy has given filmgoers a doozy in the character of FBI Special Agent Eunice Bloom. This slinky, sexy, southern drawlin', whip smart operative is played by delicious Dexter dame Julie Benz -- though you may not recognize her in... READ MORE

Boondock Saints II Review by Alison F

As is true with much of the fan base, I stumbled across Boondock Saints in college. My fraternity regularly had 'Boondock Saints' night as part of our on-record social activities. Since my experience with the first movie generated interest in the second, I'll briefly address the appeal of the first.

The McManus brothers as regular dudes turned vigilante was an ideologically attractive premise. I loved the psychological balance between their God complex and normalcy. Smecker lent complexity and panache, Rocco lent ingenuous joie de vive. Listening to Troy's audio commentary helped me appreciate camera style and editing choices that set the look on edge. Actively addressing the question of whether or not this vigilantism is moral gave the film conversation-stimulating controversy. Guns, vendettas, and moral dichotomy... what's not to love?

And now for "All Saint's Day." The fact is, I would put the two movies in different genres. For this reason, after rolling things around a bit with friends and in my own head, I feel they are best examined separately. Boondock II took a wholly different approach, the action/thriller stance simplifying the McManus brothers and placing emphasis on the twisting and thickening plot. Such films can rarely pull off soul-searching without becoming cheesy and stilted, so I'm glad that wasn't attempted. It was nice to get some back story on how Noah ended up in prison throughout the childhood of his sons. I was a bit confused by the Rocco Epiphany after (someone's) death - the point seemed to change at least twice. Are we building an empire? Re-affirming the Saints' mission, despite necessary casualties? (probably the winner), Are Boston skyscrapers pretty? What defines masculinity, anyway? ... You kind of lost me. On the other end of the spectrum, the Chinese heroin scene was the first that told me "Yeah, I'm definitely watching Boondock Saints 2." Interaction between brothers and the brothers and Romeo were pure gold. I thought Boondock II kicked ass, pulled no punches, and rocked the action genre. New characters Eunice Bloom and Romeo were a joy, all the way. Having said that I feel that those who were attracted to the quirky, gruesome comedy of the first movie may, like Romeo and me, need "a period of adjustment."

My opinion: both movies stand on strong but completely different merits. I would see each one for different reasons.

I'll close by saying I am very grateful to everyone involved in mounting a second effort and bringing the fanship another fucktastically awesome film! I will do all I can to support it.

Cheers,
Alison F

JoBlo Review: Boondock Saints 2

PLOT: Ten years later, the boys are back in town. When a priest is killed and the boys are framed, they do exactly what the bad guys expect… the MacManus brothers come out of hiding and head back to Boston. Once there, they meet a Hispanic fellow named Romeo, and find some help where they least expect it. As they begin the hunt, the boys find themselves hunted as well. This is exactly what fans of The Boondock Saints would expect from Troy Duffy, a tongue-in-cheek bit of action and bloodshed that refuses to take itself too seriously.

Boondock Saints 2 by Thomas at The Spectator

Face it: Sequels suck. Troy Duffy is here to prove us wrong with his highly anticipated sequel to one of the biggest cult movies of all time: The Boondock Saints.

On Oct. 30 Duffy released the sequel Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day (BDS2), 10 years after the first film. The first Boondock Saints was released in 1999 in only five theaters, but has over the years grossed over $50 million in DVD sales alone. This gives new meaning to cult film, riding the wave of their fans to one of the biggest selling DVD titles of all time. Boondock fans are something special to say the least.

When the Saints come blasting in - by The Coast Report

When the Saints come blasting in
Cult classic sequel is violently fun.

By Kate Regan, Staff Writer

Erin go Bragh. The “Boondock Saints” sequel has finally arrived in theaters and is stunning audiences all over Orange County.

The original “Boondock Saints” tells the story of two Irish immigrants who are stong in their faith and the rules of God. The two men are soon called to arms to eradicate the filthy criminals of South Boston.


The film is an action-packed adventure in which two religious men do their duty by executing the criminals of their city by teaming up with a mafia package boy to clean things up.

That was the first “Boondock Saints.” Its sequel, “All Saints Day,” takes the action up to the next level. There is murder, comedy, a strong sense of moral values and most of all, faith.

Before the so-called saints send a criminal to their maker, they say a prayer. Afterward, they put pennies on the eyes of the dead and cross the criminal’s arms over their chest.

This is what makes each of these movies powerful in every sense of the word. The sense of... READ MORE

Framingham native returned to town to prep for Boondock Saints sequel...

Framingham native returned to town to prep for Boondock Saints sequel...

It’s not uncommon for Brian Mahoney to return to Framingham, drive through his hometown, stop by a local bar to grab a drink and watch whichever of Boston’s sports team is playing on TV that night.

But one of his most recent visits was more than just a casual stay. Mahoney was preparing for the biggest role of his Hollywood acting career so far – as a co-star in the sequel to “The Boondock Saints,” a crime thriller film set in Boston and released in 1999 that has since gained a cult following.

Returning to Framingham prior to the filming of “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,” which hit theaters Oct. 30, Mahoney wanted to... READ MORE

From Exeter to 'Boondocks' by Seacoast Online

Writer/director of cult fave finds vindication in success of second 'Saints' film

"Boondock Saints" maverick Troy Duffy, 38, is a man of two worlds.

There's the son of a Harvard-educated English teacher who raised his five children to give book reports on the classics.

This Troy Duffy won writing awards from Shel Silverstein, as well as other lauds his father said are "too numerous to mention," and at age 14 gave such a mature analysis of James Joyce's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" it moved his father to tears.

This Troy was born in Connecticut but spent most of his youth on the Seacoast, as the family bought hotels along the New Hampshire and southern Maine coast. He attended Barnard School in South Hampton and graduated from Exeter High School while living in the family's 7,500-square-foot house in Kensington.

Two years ago Troy and his wife, Angela, were married on the grounds of the waterfront home his father, Robert, and stepmother, Judith Duffy, built on the edge of the Piscataqua River in Eliot, Maine.

Bob Duffy remembers one year this... READ MORE

Ziggy @ the Movies Reviews "This is It," "The Boondock Saints II"

See what Ziggy has to say about two recent releases -- "This is It" and "The Boondock Saints II." Get his take on both flicks. (KTBU-TV/IND.)

BOONDOCK FANS!

Boondock II is scheduled for wider release next week and even further the week after. Hopefully it gets to all of you. But the fans are fueling this thing. You're in control. As long as you guys keep showing up to the theaters it is presently in, it will spread like a virus. To the fans that "have" and "are currently" showing up, thanks. The fate of the rest of the flock is in your hands!

At this point with all the fan screenings I have attended with various cast members I have gotten to see this thing with about 3,000 fans, all in. Reactions have been off the charts. Personally, I'm a VERY proud Pappa. Victory is ours!

I know this does little to satisfy those of you who want to see it now and can't but patience, Grasshopper, patience...T.Duff

Boondock Saints II All Saints Day Review by Critique This

Alright, It's a sad day when a person is driven absolutely to the brink, but it's also rather poetically just for the review I am about to give. Critics all over the world have joined together in some sort of Neo-Nazi ridiculous cult group where if a movie isn't The Stepford Wives, it's crap. This is not the case. I have spent the last few days listening to critics from EVERYWHERE crack their 'almighty whip' down hard onto the backs of Troy Duffy, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Norman Reedus. I am tired of this. So, as in true Boondock Saints Fan fashion, I'm doing something about it. Now, yes this is my first review, and most people out there will begin to complain immediately. "You don't have the credentials to do a review, you can't be a critic!", Wrong. I have had three plus years in the training of Interactive Media [That's film and t.v. children], and more than five years in writing and commercial literature. So, if that's not good enough for you, please discontinue reading from here on out. Now, I'm..going to give the review that I believe should have been given from the very start. Boondock Saints II is a sequel from the original Boondock Saints made in 1999, it returns to follow the MacManus brothers who are in submission from their brief reign of taking out all of South Boston's scum. The movie really ... READ MORE

'Saints' alive (and so is Duffy) by Canoe

By JIM SLOTEK - Sun Media

I meet renegade filmmaker Troy Duffy in a dark, downtown Toronto pub, and tell him he looks pretty good for a dead guy. Career-dead, that is.

"I know," says the director of the long-delayed The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. "People thought I'd pulled a Grizzly Adams and was living crazy in the wilderness." ... READ MORE

On a Twin Cities visit, the director and star of Boondock Saints II by Star Tribune

On a Twin Cities visit, the director and star of "Boondock Saints II" took their publicity campaign from the theater to the bar.

You won't find Christopher Nolan or David Fincher shutting down a bar with a bunch of fans, but Troy Duffy is a different breed of moviemaker.

The onetime Boston bartender, who doesn't mind cultivating his image as a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, had an icepick hangover Thursday morning. He'd spent a long night "sampling the flavors of Minneapolis" with fans who attended the local premiere of his twisted vigilante thriller "Boondock Saints II: All Saints' Day."

The 1999 original, a McFlurry of blue-collar grunge, John Woo gunplay and hooligan humor, was yanked from theaters when the Columbine shootings occurred, but became a major word-of-mouth hit on video. Fans made it... READ MORE

Interview – Troy Duffy, Chris Brinker, and Sean Patrick Flanery of The Boondock Saints II by Reel Loop



Like many, I came to know and love The Boondock Saints through DVD (and now Blu-ray.) Browsing through my local DVD retailer, I checked out their new released and saw the film for a reasonable price. This was also at a time I had decided I wanted to be a filmmaker so I was interested in seeing obscure, off-beat films. So I purchased the flick, went home, and was instantly assaulted by all of it’s awesome. From the unrelenting action to Willem Dafoe’s outlandish performance, I was thoroughly entertained by what Troy Duffy had delivered and eagerly anticipated the sequel, which by this point in time was still rumored.

Well here we are, ten years after the first film debuted and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is upon us. While it’s been playing... READ MORE

DFW goes Hollywood

On a beautiful Thursday in November with temperatures in the mid-70s, film fans in Dallas-Fort Worth got a glimpse of what it might be like to live in Los Angeles. Besides the California-like weather, this was a movie-intensive day, with the Lone Star International Film Festival in full swing at venues throughout Fort Worth, and the Angelika Film Center in Dallas hosting the Southwest premiere of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day.

For those not in know about the phenomenon of Boondock, here's a brief history: Following its limited theatrical release in 1999, this Tarantino-style gangster thriller developed a cult following on DVD. Legions of fans were telling their friends, "You have got to see this movie!"

That was how I discovered the movie. My good friend "Wheels" demanded I watch it or lose my "man card."

But even with the surprise... READ MORE

An audience with the Boondock Saints



It was a strange night at the Mall of America last evening. "Twilight Saga: New Moon" fans filled the rotunda for the appearance by Edi Gathegi and Jamie Campbell Bower. Meanwhile upstairs in the movie theater a wondrous collection of pumped-up Boondock Saints fans were howling at the arrival of director Troy Duffy and star Sean Patrick Flanery (pictured above.)

Duffy and Flanery came to introduce "Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day," and to grow the legend of one of the stranger film stories in recent years.

In case you missed it, here's the thumbnail: in the late 1990's Troy Duffy became a Hollywood hot property because of his "Boondock" script. The story of a pair of gun-toting Irish vigilantes blasting Boston baddies seemed ideal for studios eager to build on the success of "Pulp Fiction." He got a huge... READ MORE

Troy Duffy - Eye Weekly

Who is he?

If things had gone differently, Troy Duffy would require no introduction. In 1997, Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein offered the then-twentysomething bartender and aspiring writer/director millions to turn The Boondock Saints, his screenplay for a hard-boiled Boston-Irish crime flick, into a blockbuster. The movie got made, but not before the Miramax deal fell through and Duffy’s Hollywood fantasy, which included a major record deal for his band (also called The Boondock Saints), began to collapse under the weight of the director’s ego, bravado and questionable conduct. The Boondock Saints opened on five screens in 1999 and grossed next to nothing, the band’s album flopped, and it looked as though Duffy would be better known for Overnight, the 2003 documentary tracing his almost-rise and subsequent fall, than for the movie that was supposed to make him a star.

It took the DVD market and the posthumous success of The Boondock Saints as a cult hit to provide... READ MORE

"Films are made for people. They're made for viewers, not for critics."

Ten years ago, first time writer/director Troy Duffy made a small indie flick called “The Boondock Saints.” Few people saw the film during its incredibly short-lived theatrical run, and it looked certain that Duffy’s baby was doomed to the realm of obscurity. Yet somehow, despite all the tribulation, “The Boondock Saints” amassed a loyal following. Dazzled by the gun-slinging MacManus brothers, fans hungered for a follow-up, and Duffy was all too happy to oblige them. The sequel, “The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” hits theaters Nov. 13.

A&E sat down with Duffy and one of the stars of the film, Sean Patrick Flannery, to talk about sequels, style and cult status.

Why did you want to make a sequel and why now after a decade?... READ MORE

The movie that opened small but became a cult classic gets a second stab at the big screen

The Saints are back, by populist demand.

A decade after The Boondock Saints debuted at a meagre five theatres before going on to become an unexpected indie cult classic on video, director/writer Troy Duffy said the sequel – opening tomorrow in Toronto and in Vancouver and Halifax on Nov. 20 – was a matter of giving the people what they want.

"The fans demanded it. They did it with their pocketbooks," said Connecticut native Duffy, noting the film made at least... READ MORE

Saints star in town for special screening

After 10 years, the Boondocks Saints have come out of hiding, and Sean Patrick Flanery says all your questions about the vigilante fraternal twins will be answered in the new film.

However, if you need more answers, Flanery will take your questions after the screening of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day at 7:50 tonight at the Edwards Marq*E Theater, 7600 Katy Freeway.

Flanery, who grew up in Sugar Land and often returns to visit his parents, stars as Connor MacManus. In the 1999 film, Connor teams with his brother Murphy (Norman Reedus) to rid Boston of evil. It's a bloody job.

When the sequel opens, the violent brothers have been living undercover in Ireland with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly). The murder of a beloved priest brings the Saints back to Boston. They find a comrade, played by Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek), and dodge an FBI operative, played by Julie Benz (Dexter).

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is the much-anticipated sequel to the indie cult classic, The Boondock Saints. The film is the continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV's “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!

Julie Benz on The Boondock Saints II and What's Next on Dexter

Dexter's Julie Benz stars on one of the most violent dramas on TV but the blood usually comes only at the hands of her on-screen husband, Dexter Morgan. In her new film, The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, Benz finds herself right in the middle of the action.

"I actually got to play with guns!" Benz says.

Although Benz had never seen the original 1999 film, she immediately gravitated toward the part of southern belle FBI agent Eunice Bloom. "[Writer-director] Troy Duffy wrote this really amazing woman," Benz says. "She's not a victim or a love interest; she's like a guy but still a woman. That's what I really ... READ MORE

ScreenRant: Demand to See 'Boondock Saints II' in Your Town



Apparently, there is a new and developing trend in Hollywood and it all started with the breakout hit Paranormal Activity. You see, a few weeks ago Paramount wasn’t planning on giving Paranormal Activity a wide release, but then word started spreading about the film and its popularity grew. What happened next was nothing short of a miracle. The director and producers put a link at the end of the trailer where moviegoers across the nation could “demand” the film be shown in their town. The viral marketing worked and this weekend Paranormal Activity dethroned Saw VI to become the reigning Halloween champ.

Also in attendance were Boondock stars Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus. Sean is very talkative, but Norman almost never interjects and is very soft-spoken. You’ll hear me address him directly about 11 minutes in by saying, “Norman, I feel like I’m ignoring you.” The topics covered in the first 2/3 are mostly about The Boondock Saints II, the casting, the gay jokes, the

I remember back in one of my college English classes, we were talking about the work of Jack Kerouac. The professor was talking about how if Kerouac would've had a regular editor for his seminal book On the Road (although many names were changed and explicit content removed - omission doesn't necessarily mean editing), it might have resulted in a more coherent and sound piece of work... but it just wouldn't have been Kerouac. I bring up that weird and rather out of place story for a reason, because it seems to echo the work of maverick filmmaker Troy Duffy, the bartender-turned-filmmaker whose debut film Boondock Saints turned into a cult classic phenomenon. After the well-documented struggles of making the first film, and again with his sequel Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, a decade after the first film famously hit theaters for only one week due to the studio worrying about the Columbine massacre blowback...

Billy Connolly is truly a jack of all trades.

Connolly may best known to American audiences from his role on the comedy series “Head of The Class” or as a brilliant stand-up comic that never fails to bring down the house, but to a whole new generation of fans, Billy Connolly is the mysterious and very lethal patriarch of the “Boondock Saints.” Directed by Troy Duffy, Connolly played opposite of Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as the head of the McManus clan in a unique film that would go on to become one of the biggest cult sensations in movie history.
