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 outside of the church at the beginning of the movie is "Old South Church". The pulpit is from "Trinity Church", they are steps away from each other. See more »
Norman Reedus has his father's name "Norman" tattooed over his heart, and in the apartment scene when the Russians come to get our boys, his robe falls open and you can clearly see the tattoo. 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 Malaysian version of the film (and possibly the Hong Kong/China print) is uncut and in English. That print has all the violent scenes missing from the Canada and US release. On the downside it's full screen and not letterbox. See more »
I know there's a lot of people who either worship this movie or hate it. Truth be told this movie is just a fun action movie with a good plot, great characters, and very good direction. Compare it to whatever you want, but you can do that with any movie out there. If you haven't had the chance to catch this flick, go out and rent it! it's one of those movies that shouldn't be missed. I guarantee that once you see it you'll be quoting it left and right. Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus have amazing chemistry together, and David Del Rocko just adds the comedic relief that makes the trio one thats hard to take your eyes off of.
See the Boondock Saints and get ready to have a good ole celtic time.
