Trivia

The men who played "the Saints" in the previous The Boondock Saints (1999) film return to their vigilante roles in this film. Few actors have reprized the role of vigilantes in R-rated adventure films. The few other prominent examples include Charles Bronson in the four Death Wish films, Robert Ginty as the Exterminator in Exterminator 2 (1984), and Arnold Vosloo in Darkman III: Die Darkman Die (1996).

Goofs

In the final tête-à-tête between Il Duce and The Roman in the garden atrium, there are occasional reflections of a little blue-green monitor in each lens of each character's sunglasses, likely a dialogue teleprompter. See more »

Major disappointment : (
18 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Being a fan of the Saints for years I went into this movie with high expectations and a good amount of personal excitement. Unfortunately, this movie fell way below the standards set by the first installment, for these reasons:

.paper thin plot = very generic, the kind of thing you come up with in five minutes of stereotypical mob brainstorming.

.Dumbed down = Where the first movie succeeded in being witty and fun the second can only survive off of gay jokes and three stooges antics.

.Copying = It seemed like every single well known moment in the first movie was copy and pasted into this movie with the exact same outcome every time. Like they couldn't of anything else to do with them but what they already did.

.Dependent = This movie depended Way too heavily on the first being the underground classic it was. It just tries so hard to be the same bad-ass movie that all the shootout scenes are in slomo and last 25-30 min apiece.

Troy Duffy had his chance to make a movie again and in my opinion all he did was plagiarize himself. Though at times it was funny, the few and far between moments were not enough to save what should have been a continuation of a vigilante cult classic that survived despite the odds. What we get instead is Troy Duffy's homage to himself and a movie that never should have been made.
