Directed by Troy Duffy.

A pair of Catholic brothers turn vigilante and go on the rampage in Boston’s criminal underworld.
With a production history as troubled as some of the characters in the movie, Troy Duffy’s The Boondock Saints hits Blu-ray thanks to Arrow Video and immediately takes us back to a post-Tarantino 1990s where linear storytelling was out and exaggerated bloodshed and violence was in, with quirky characters played by established actors and stylised dialogue a necessity. Oh yes, after Pulp Fiction redefined – or rather, reshaped – the crime thriller into pop art for a new generation looking for their own iconic images and quotable soundbites the movie world was suddenly full of filmmakers trying their hand at creating something cool that would catch on in the lexicon of film culture.
