When the brothers meet Rocco at the bar in their dream, a black cat walks past Rocco across the counter. The cat is a sly reference to Rocco's girlfriend's cat Skippy, who Rocco accidentally shot in the first The Boondock Saints (1999) film. See more »
During the meeting of the Dons, Yakavetta states that the Saints killed his father, then goes on to say "mi Padrino" which means my godfather. Clearly a contradiction, as a son would never refer to his father as "godfather" even within the "families". See more »
If you enjoyed the first movie DON'T see this one!
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!
