Probably need to see some more movies then
this is one of those films where if someone tells me they love it, i know they're wasting my time. bro-garbage.
Best movie i ever seen. Best part is when one of the brothers who was chained to a toilet ripped up the toilet and tipped it over the balcony railing.
Ok, this was definitely fun to watch. It has cool characters, some really cool dialogues and, overall, it's a pretty cool movie. And that's the problem I have with it; it tries so hard to be cool that it misses the chances it has to question the morality of vigilante justice. I wouldn't mind, but that seems to be a major issue for Willem Defoe's character and the movie doesn't even grasp the surface of his dilemma.
This faux-Tarantino bullshit is dangerous, immoral, offensive cinema. It is so up its own ass that it must have been ghost directed by whatever embodiment of misguided teenage fantasy was around. There is nothing competent in this film. Nothing. I wish Troy Duffy was still blacklisted.
absolutely fucking awful. overrated and overhyped to the max. the action scenes were the only positive thing I have to say about this movie. Willem Dafoe's character is probably one of the worst things I've ever seen. Awful dialogue, bad pacing, shitty acting. 2/10
I don't care what anyone says: this movie, chock full of guns, pimps, gangsters, vigilantes and one serious, yet flamboyantly gay cop, is over the top and very funny. Luckily, it doesn't stray too far from that formula into serious drama territory, otherwise it would lose a lot of its appeal and quotability.
It was reported that Kevin Spacey was going to play Willem Dafoe's character, but turned it down. I don't blame him! This movie is hugely overrated! A pretentious action movie that feels like it wants to join the big crowd, but doesn't deliver anything special. What's worse is by having our main protagonists being motivated by God's call, in other words; we're supposed to root for a bunch of schizophrenics? Please!
Some funny scenes, but overall a big mess made by someone who probably watched Reservoir Dogs and The Big Lebowski one too many times, but clearly doesn't know how to write or direct a film.
Troy Duffy... Troy Duffy... Troy Duffy... Wow, what can I say...? To anyone who hasn't seen 'Overnight' (2003), they must see it before they watch this steaming pile of dog shit. Know the artist before you know the work... This guy is compelling... for reasons that are quite unique, quite unconventional in terms of what usually attracts me to a filmmaker... a true case of schadenfreude! See 'Overnight' people!
Like being drunk on mouthwash: only tolerable if you're a teenager or an urchin.
I don't understand the blind fandom that this movie has attracted. To me, on almost every level, it strikes me as imitative, gimmic-ridden, and desperate for the authority of success that directors like Scorcessee, Tarantino, and Peckinpahh have achieved. It is this which most annoys me: how The Boondock Saints has digested the bold aesthetic stances taken by the above-listed, directors and thus gained a following.
