What It’s All About:
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day picks up eight years after the first movie where after killing a prominent mob boss in the Boston Crime Underworld, the McManus brothers and their father fled back to their home country of Ireland to seek solitude. A priest is found murdered in a Boston church with the calling card of the saints, and when the brothers hear of this they seek revenge. A rampage against the Yakavetta mob is raging on the streets of Boston as the saints do what they do best – kill bad guys.
The Final Verdict:
It may have been a long time in the making, but Troy Duffy has provided a worthy sequel to the original cult classic. While the movie essentially lives out the same story arch as it’s predecessor, in-house jokes from the first movie, witty dialogue and new characters make All Saints Day feel fresh. This time round Duffy seems to have a firmer grasp of what he is trying to achieve, and that is to create a delightful piece of entertainment that manages to keep a smile on your face.
