The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest.
A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. The boys must return to Boston to not only clear their names but find the men who framed them.Written by

If you liked or loved the first one this one will definitely entertain. Even if you haven't seen the first one this one will still be entertaining, but you might not understand all of the in-jokes, which there are several of but they do not take anything away from the film. This one is a whole lot like the first one in that the two greatest Irish catholic killers of bad men are doing what they do best: killing bad men. We find the brothers living a quiet bearded life in Ireland, the beards are little silly but it gives you the idea that many years of no killing has taken a toll on the brothers and their looks. After getting a quick view of their simple lives they are quickly brought right back into action after news that a priest has been killed back in hometown Boston. This killing in particular upsets the brother because it is done in the same exact fashion that the brothers execute their big targets. Whilst on the way back home they pick up a new partner, a humorous Hispanic replacement for Rocco from the first one, who is their new contact into Bostons criminal underworld. Willem Dafoe is also replaced by a female FBI agent who does her job just like Willems character does because she is his protégé and she is very good at her job. Returning characters include the three cops that worked with Dafoes character in the first one and they are all hysterical and make a nice little side characters, their bar owning friend F#$% A$$ is also back and gives them shelter and drinks. While on their quest for revenge their are many laughs and many shoot outs, the violence is fun and stylish. Recommended for lovers of the first and anyone in the mood for a fun stylish action movie.
