"The Boondock Saints" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Problems - Choose The Right Issue...,
This review is from: The Boondock Saints (Unrated Director's Cut) [BLU-RAY] (1999) (Region 2) (Import) (DVD)
Two brothers (from the McManus family) decide to rid Boston of its mobsters - one by one. A local cop (Defoe) tries to track them down and stop the systematic killing. But then the Detective begrudgingly thinks - maybe the Irish boys are doing him and the city he loves a genuine favour? "The Boondock Saints" was so well received - it even spawned a sequel nearly a decade later...
However - fans of this gritty thriller will see that there are two versions of this film. And they should also note that the 'Unrated Director's Cut' out of Denmark is the BLU RAY to buy. Unfortunately the 20th Century Fox 'US' release is REGION A LOCKED - so it will not play on the vast majority of our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which most aren't).
Although the Danish issue has foreign language all over its box - it's REGION B - and therefore will play the English film on our machines...no problem...
With not much hope of an actual UK release - the Euro option is the way to go...
