The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest.
When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. The boys must return to Boston to not only clear their names but find the men who framed them.

When Detective Bloom describes the killing in the hotel, Jimmy the Gopher hears the story from inside the panic room, though in the beginning of the film Gorgeous George had to push the intercom button to talk from outside, which did not happen during Bloom's explanation. See more »

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day "Bigger, Louder, Desperate"
This whole movie feels forced, it is as though one of 'the saints' put a gun to the creators head and demanded a sequel.
The only people who are going to watch this are those who liked the original (which was a great niche action movie 8/10 stars). BSII fails to love up to the original in every way; interesting & entertaining characters are replaced with cheap & annoying ones; old gimmicks are simply rehashed; the leads look old & tired; recurring characters look lost & bewildered; and where the original BS story was simple, tight, & original, BS2's plot is overcomplicated and contrived.
There are some thrills and spills to be had in BSII, but it is difficult to watch something fall so far short from the quality of the original.
On the Fruit-Meter, BSII gets the "SULTANA (or RAISEN)' The original grape was fresh and juicy, the sequel has lost all the original zesty flavours and has too many wrinkles.
