The result isn't art but it is an improvement: a scurrilous, lowdown, sub-Tarantino action comedy that, unlike the original, doesn't make you want to claw your eyes out. How's that for praise?

The only truly ugly side to this self-consciously grimy movie is the streak of Neanderthal humor. Operatic overacting is funny. Racist and homophobic jokes? Not so much.
38
You wouldn't call The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day a taut thriller. More like a fleshy, messy, jangled frenzy of shootouts and much discussion about the mechanics of romantic entanglements that bloom between prison inmates.

The Boondock Saints II does, from time to time, display a vulgar charm. Or maybe it just wears you out.

The Hollywood Reporter
Although the Tarantino influence still is tangible, this time around Duffy reveals himself to also be a big Francis Ford Coppola fan, but the cartoonish end result plays like "Godfather III" meets the Three Stooges.
25
An idiotic ode to macho horseshite (to employ an ancient Irish word). It is however distinguished by superb cinematography.

Earns points only for being remarkably unself-conscious about its across-the-board ineptitude.

Chicago Tribune
Just the same auld same auld.

Only Billy Connolly, as the boys' way-of-the-gun pa, brings a smidgen of sobering gravitas to the proceedings, though he can hardly counter the pounding hangover brought on by all the mock-virtuous butchery.
11
Isn't for everyone, obviously; it might not be for anyone, come to think of it.
