    Boston Globe

    (Duffy) navigates the twisted collision of religious faith and the thrill of the kill, altruism and brutality, with an ingenious mix of humor, horror, mysticism, and just plain hipness. show more

    Robert Koehler Variety

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

    Manohla Dargis L.A. Weekly

    (Duffy's) assembled a fine cast -- it's hard to take your eyes off the two young leads -- but he's given them little to do but squeeze triggers and mouth platitudes. show more

    Nathan Rabin The A.V. Club

    As written and directed by newcomer Troy Duffy, The Boondock Saints is all style and no substance, a film so gleeful in its endorsement of vigilante justice that it almost veers (or ascends) into self-parody. show more

    Missed this one when it first came out, but just watched it and it rocks! Its original and Flannry and Reedus were perfectly cast. I'm in love with Reedus now. You got to check out the deleted scenes to see the guys in the buff. Wonder how your looking now Norman. Who'd ever thought killers could be so sexy! Love the way it was done. Great story. Beyond its time. Live to Ride!!!
