Boondock Saints: Meh?


I just watched boondock saints for the first time...all I've heard is about how amazing it is. I mean it was ok, but nothing deserving of cult classic status.

Maybe I need to be high and or drunk to appreciate it

Willem Dafoe makes the entire movie worth watching

It's got some great moments and some great quotes though.

If you watched it when you were like 10-12 years old it was the greatest movie ever, and you like it forever.
Unfortunately, you missed out

it's borderline terrible, and has zero re-watchability

although, there will be fanboys on this thread with the quickness defending it as the the most awesome movie, like ever

I think the backlash from the fanboy hype has resulted in this movie being overly hated now. It's decent for an action movie. I mean it's no worse than something like Dredd, which has a thread full of people calling it "fantastic" and "great".

on this, I can somewhat agree

I think I give too much credence on the setting of any movie. You give me a movie with voice-activated guns, I give you some slack

you give me a movie set in present day with shotguns, I feel there's a different set of parameters you need to adhere to


FWIW, I think Dredd was much better than Boondock, yet neither are re-watchable

re: Boondock Saints: Meh?


seriously, though, i can see why people would prefer lesean. morris is just more of my kind of player, and i hope he has continued success before shanahan runs him into the ground.



i got #2. Probably gonna take foster

I like it. It's not a masterpiece but it was entertaining and very fun to watch. The 2nd one was one of the worst things I've ever seen.

It was pretty quotable.

A buddy whiffs on a girl at the bar, "Where you going tonight? Nowhere."

I don't think I've seen it since college though

I thought it was entertaining but haven't watched the entire movie since freshman year of college. Caught the first 20 minutes on TV the other day and got enough of that nostalgic feeling then flipped it to something else.

It definitely wouldn't hurt.
