We Love The Boondock Saints

Updated on February 9, 2014

The Boondock Saints is a Fantastic Movie

The Boondock Saints is a great movie, and the only movie, by Troy Duffy.  With a great cast, these guys deliver in a powerful film that shows an enormous amount of creativity with amazing characters, great music, and an unforgettable script.

Why I Love The Boondock Saints in 100 Words or Less

The Boondock Saints (Unrated Special Edition)
The Boondock Saints (Unrated Special Edition)

This movie takes two Irish brothers who'll do anything to protect one another, a fued between the Italian and Russian mob, the strangest FBI agent ever, and a story of religious vigilantism that combines for one of the most amazing movies made in recent memory.

 

The Boondock Saints Prayers

There are actually two: the Boondock Saints family prayer and Il Duce's 3 prayers

The Boondock Saints Family Prayer:

And Shepherds we shall be

For thee, my Lord, for thee.

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand

Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti

Il Duce's Prayers (3):

"And when I vest my flashing sword And my hand takes hold in judgement I will take vengeance upon mine enemies And I will repay those who hase me O Lord, raise me to Thy right hand And count me amoung Thy saints."

"Whosoever shed last blood, By man shall his blood be shed. For immunity of god made he the man. Destroy all that which is evil. So that which is good may flourish. And I shall count thee amoung my favoured sheep. And you shall have the protection of all the angels in heaven."

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeaful striking hammer of god."

Go ahead, disagree. I dare you.

Boondock Saints is one of the best movies ever. Period.

The Boondock Saints is the best movie ever.

The Boondock Saints IS the best.

      Cult classic ... silly, stupid, and the MOST fun you will have watching a movie !!! Saints 2 is alright ... Romeo's character is cool and understanding Duce II backstory is cool ... but that female FBI agent could have been better cast, Saints 1 ... best movie ever - have to disagree .... but awesome for sure !!! Named my dog Murphy !!!

      Not ONE of the best. THE best. Period.

      How can anybody even compare this to Pulp Fiction, much less call it a knock-off. Boondock Saints is one of the greatest movies of all time, as far as I am concerned.

      This is a fantastic movie that is NOT a Pulp Fiction rip-off. Both are good, but Boondocks is extremely original, with one of the most original characters ever in Willem Dafoe's FBI crime scene investigator. I can watch this over and over again.

    Wrong! It's the worst!

      This movie is one of the all time great independent films, and a sequel has long been rumored in the works, but as far as anyone can tell, hasn't grown any legs. If you haven't seen this film, you need to watch it.

      It's original, with great characters, an intriguing notion of right, wrong, and faith, and just an all around amazing action movie with substance in addition to style.

      Showdown!

      Is this movie a cheap knock off of Pulp Fiction?

      No! It's extremely original from characters to plot, and the story line still revolves around only the brothers.

          Hell no, this movie is actually worth watching!

        • oniyagi 9 years ago

          It was in no way even like Pulp Fiction. Not even the same game, much less ballpark. Boondock Saints was a much more interesting and character driven story. Saints could actually happen. Pulp Fiction just seems way too surreal to me.

        • EshanMonteath 9 years ago

          Both movies are original, and The Boondock Saints is NOT like Pulp Fiction.

        Violence, cut scenes, and a lot of swearing--Troy Duffy sounds just like a cheap Quentein Tarantino

          The Soundtrack is by Troy Duffy's band, who aren't half bad. I'm especially fond of the "Pipes" track.
