Two Irish brothers accidentally kill mafia thugs. They turn themselves in and are released as heroes. They then see it as a calling by God and start knocking off mafia gang members one by one. Willem Dafoe plays the detective trying to figure out the killings, but the closer he comes to catching the Irish brothers, the more he thinks the brothers are doing the right thing.Written by
The church where Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) attend Mass, Church of the Covenant, is not a Catholic church, but a Lutheran one. No Catholic churches in the area would allow filming in their sanctuaries due to their objections to the plot of this movie. See more »

Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, the glory, now and forever. Amen.

The version at the German Fantasy Film Fest (1999) and the Canadian DVD release differ in 3 cuts. The DVD cuts are:
the Hotel Shootout: This scene has a cut about 7 seconds, showing bloody bullet hits, when the two brothers are hanging on the rope.
Rocco shoots the Mafia-Guys in the bar: The headshot and the shot in the chest are cut away on the DVD. You only see the blood coming out of the back of the bench.
Shootout in the pool room: One scene is cut which shows several bullet hits in the body of the guy who opens the door.
Pool room shootout: The guy that's holding the phone, standing in the back left corner, gets shot twice. The second bullet hit is cut out from the US R-rated DVD.
Cool action scenes, good pacing and much funny entrateinment. A dark comedy in Irish world
Willem dafoe does a good job on the acting and it has a decent soundtrack. I don't see why critics hate this movie.
