The Saints Return…With a Vengeance: An Interview with Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Their Fans
Ten years ago, director Troy Duffy went from just another LA bartender to Hollywood’s next big thing to sleeping one off on someone else’s floor. His script for The Boondock Saints was hot, attracting the backing of the Weinsteins with names like Ewan McGregor and Stephen Dorff up for parts. Then, depending on who you hear the story from (former friends, emphasis on the “former”, chronicle their take in the 2003 documentary Overnight), Duffy pissed a lot of people off and Columbine happened; nobody wanted anything to do with his stylized and glorified vigilante movie anymore. It was probably a bit of both. Still, Duffy kept at it, managing a practically-straight-to-video release from Franchise Pictures (excepting a brief five screen release rumored to be paid out of his own pocket).
Critics panned it across the board… READ MORE

The “Boondock Saints” franchise has seen a lot of action over the past few months, beginning with the release of “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,” the highly-anticipated follow up to the 1999 original.
In early 2010, cast and crew embarked on a multi-city tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original film. Director Troy Duffy and stars from the movie, along with the bands responsible for creating the movie’s unique soundtrack, hit the road in January to party with fans all across the country.
On Jan. 27, the tour made a stop at Busby’s East in Los Angeles where The Dirges, a self-described folk/punk band, shot a music video for their song “The Saints are Coming,” which is featured in the film and on the recently-released soundtrack. In addition to a meet and greet with the stars and music from the movie, die-hard fans who made it to the party had the special honor of being used in the filming of the music video — which was directed by Duffy himself...

I adored the original movie, not because of the violence or "cool" factor necessarily, but more for the idea behind it (and the two hot friggin' guys). Everyone aged a decent amount for the sequel (shit, Sean Patrick Flannery's face looks plain swollen for some reason), but I loved that they put all the original cast members in the roles that everyone originally loved them for. Although Willem Dafoe was... READ MORE

Back in 1999, when “Boondock Saints” came and went (after appearing in a handful of theaters), the odds of ever seeing a sequel to the movie were incalculably low. And, as time went by, the odds grew even longer.
But “Boondock Saints” is not your average movie — and “Boondock Saints” fans are far from your average fans. Director Troy Duffy had a vision to get a sequel made … and in 2009, that movie blazed its way inter theaters.
The two “Saints” — played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus — were completely on board with reprising the roles of Conner and Murphy McManus, even if it seemed (at times) like it might never happen.
Reedus said he never gave up faith in the sequel — but still was a bit shocked when they ... READ MORE

If you read Geeks of Doom, you know I’ve been one of the biggest supporters of a sequel to 1999’s The Boondock Saints for as long as one has been rumored, which is about eleven years now. And from the moment Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day became official, any time anything was released about the movie, I was jumping on it. Various different posts came of it all, including interviews with stars Clifton Collins Jr. and Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus.
Because of my love for the first and my being proud of its Boston roots, that made me a likely biased candidate to... READ MORE
Troy Duffy is the director of “The Boondock Saints” and “The Boondock Saints II: All Saint’s Day”. Both films proved that making movies is not easy but once you have fans behind you anything is possible. Troy has become a major Hollywood player and he is going to make more great films down the line, as he is only getting started. MovieMikes has the opportunity to talks to Troy and discuss “Boondock” and the future.

On the heels of the recent theatrical release of THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II: ALL SAINTS DAY, comes THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: “THE LOST GIG”. Acting as a primer to the highly anticipated comic series, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS: “IN NOMINE PATRIS”, “The Lost Gig” is destined to thrill both Boondock Saints and comic book fans alike.
A Boston mob hires a hitman to kill a church-attending priest in a framejob similar to executions The Saints would perform. Knowing they've been sent a message, The Saints return to Boston from their discrete new lives for some blood thirsty payback.
What stands out the most in this movie is the frequent amount of comedy used. The first Boondock Saints was something of a dark comedy-action as well, but this sequel has a much higher laugh ratio. This film is almost as much a bro-mance comedy as it is a shoot-em-up action film.
Something else that stood out was the ending. The last scene of the film is memorable and exciting, ... READ MORE
