5.0 out of 5 stars Puts big-budget action films to shame., 7 Nov 2003
This review is from: The Boondock Saints [DVD] (DVD)
I am a fool for not watching this film sooner. A complete fool. I spurned it because I had never heard of the director, producer, the actors on the box, never seen it advertised - nothing.
Well, let me assure you that this puts films like The Matrix to shame. Shot on a tight schedule with a tiny budget, this is one of the best action films I have ever seen.
The acting from the on-screen brothers (portrayed by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus - who?) isn't oscar-winning, but the acting by Willem Dafoe as a camp FBI agent and David Della Rocco (as an Italian mafia delivery boy) is brilliant. This is the only film that Troy Duffy has directed and I don't know why. This direction and cinematography are nothing short of sublime, the script (also written by Troy Duffy) is excellent and the editing is superb.
Its an intresting storyline, people have bashed it as 'a catholic school boy fantasy' but this is a silly notion, its a fluid and enthralling storyline with no end of brilliant gun-fights and great conversation.
Don't end up kicking yourself like me, buy it now!
