Trivia

In Noah's voice-over during the drug factory flashback, he says "While the wicked stand confounded, call me, with thy saints surrounded." In the first The Boondock Saints (1999) movie, that line is painted above the Irish flag on the wall in the arms dealer's warehouse. See more »

Goofs

Yakavetta's hideout is said to be in the Prudential Tower. The Pru is a 52-story skyscraper made mostly of glass that says "PRUDENTIAL" on the top, not a white concrete building. See more »

If you enjoyed the first movie DON'T see this one!
3 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

How to go wrong with a sequel:

1. Use the same storyline and premise and fail to build any new conflict.

2. Use all the same cinema techniques and add louder music.

3. Get the same cast but tell them to overact and look ridiculous.

4. Only spend five minutes writing your screenplay.

This movie is a joke. Troy Duffy obviously felt that he needed to cash in on his cult success with the first movie. There was no character development. The plot was only mildly different and the characters acted as if their IQ's had dropped forty points between movies. Horrible writing!! You shouldn't put a decade between ideas!

The original Boondock Saints had a gritty feel to it. The moments of comedy were never campy or corny, but actually a bit morbid. In this waste-of-money-called-a-sequel, there is no dark edge. The characters are lacking depth and conviction; it feels as if the cast is simply going through the motions. The story is not cohesive and the plot just plain fails to hold up. The only things that keep interest, are the flashback back-story sequences about the father.

Do not waste your time or money!
