Such sexy Irish accent, a noteworthy thing to notice between the two protagonist. This is certainly the movie where Norman Reedus gained himself a place as penchant for ovaries of so many fangirls. Yes, Sean Patrick Flanery is handsome himself but Norman's naughty looks and manner of speaking would kick feelings among the female population. The movie is not just full of gun fights, it's freaking hilarious too. You'll see both brothers fight mischievously while in the midst of a killing operation that astonishingly, they'll both manage without fail. By that, I mean no casualty albeit the operation is like a failure in the process.

"Fuck you. I'm sweating my ass off draggin' your fucking rope around. It must weigh 30 lbs!"
"Shh. We're doing some serious shit here. Now, get a fucking hold of yourself!"
"Oh, fuck you! I'm not the rope-tottin' Charlie Branson wannabe that's get us fucking lost."
"Would you fucking shut it!"
Conner hits Murphy in the head.
Murphy hits back and they both end up in a cat fight.

Both male leads' antics are just so funny. And their bantering funnier. Also, Willem Dafoe's acting really pulled off the gay role.

The Boondock Saints' Oath:

For thee my Lord for thee
Power hath descended forth from thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
We shall a river forth to thee,
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In nomine Patris, et Filli, et Spiritus Sancti.

For the crime of making the Vampires sparkle like Tinker Bell


We love to hear from you
