This movie has been getting a lot of backlash from the fans of the first movie. People are saying that "It wasn't like the first one" or "It's ten years too late". I'm a fan of the first movie and I enjoyed this one immensely. Of course it isn't like the first one, but 10 years too late? Not to me. Duffy gave himself a decade to make a followup to the cult phenomenon and, well, 10 years later, he gave is possibly the greatest sequel to the first movie one could ask for.

Returning to the roles of the insanely badass McManus brothers are Sean Flanery and Norman Reedus, and boy, do they do great here. Also, in place of the lovable Paul Smecker is Julie Benz as Eunice Bloom, a sexy, funny, and smart FBI agent, who, in her words, is "so f--kin' smart, she makes other smart people feel like they're retarded" (she stays true to her word!). And also, Billy Connolly as the daddy, Il Duce. But, in place of David Della Rocco is Clifton Collins Jr. as Romeo, a HILARIOUS Mexican dude, whom, believe it or not, tops Rocco by a thousand! And believe me, the cast here is SPECTACULAR! Not a single disappointment.

It is 8 years later. The McManuses are living a quiet life on a farm in Ireland, and the brothers (albeit with hilarious long hair and beards). One night at dinner, a priest comes in and gives them the news: They're in trouble. A Boston priest has just been killed, and the killer had done all he can to make it look like the McManuses are responsible. Upon hearing of this, it's time to shave the beards and cut the hair, and jump on the boat back to Boston. On the boat, they meet Romeo, a hilarious and quirky Mexican dude who is interested in joining them. After a rough patch, he joins them, and the minute they are off the boat, they are a team of three.

This movie easily made my number one on the list of 2009's best titles. What instantly made me expect this movie to be great was that Ebert said it was awful. If the learnid and refined critics say its bad....then chances are its good. Everything that I loved about the first movie was brought back ten fold in All Saints Day. It was much longer, so there was room for a truly great story to develop. And the timing on all the humor was nearly perfect. One thing that I was really relieved about was that Romeo (Clifton Collins Jr) did NOT turn out to simply be a Rocco replacement. There are other characters and thier great performances but talking about them would spoil the plot. Bottom line: This movie is great! Period. And anyone who walked out ten minutes in has no right to bad mouth this movie since they didn't see it all the way through.

Hiding in Ireland with their father (the grey haired assassin from Boondock Saints) for the past 8 years, the MacManus brothers are being pulled back to Boston by someone who killed a priest using their trademarks (pennies on the eyes). Of course the returning crew of police detectives from Boondock I (who have since sainted the MacManus brothers for doing what they only dream of doing...rid society of scum) don't believe they are responsible and have the pretty, big belt wearing FBI Agent Eunice Bloom (from Buffy, Angel and Dexter) who agrees. They realize that someone wants the brothers to come out of hiding. The Yakavetta Family Mob Boss (played by Judd Nelson) only knows that he wants revenge for his father's death, and the death of the Saint's is the only answer. Meanwhile, we find out how and why the Elder MacManus became a killer (ironically it was the death of his father by mobsters). There is also his eventual capture and incarceration as a result of his brandishing his own sense of justice. As the person at the center of this charade is unveiled, you will marvel at the quick and easy pace of the movie.

Now while I loved part 1, there were times in part 2 that I thought they tried way too hard. The easy flow of humor from Boondock 1, at times seemed forced in 2. I also don't think that Bloom was half as good as Dafoe's Smecker. But all in all I was satisfied with the final product, and I am sure that we will see the Saints again, I just hope Duffy goes back to some of the magic he created in Part 1. For those who just want to pick up Part 2 without seeing Part 1, I wouldn't suggest it. As a stand alone, you probably won't get or appreciate it, OR understand Part 2. But as a sequel you'll appreciate it where the Saints have been and where they are going because this movie picks up right after the last one. Either way, have a "Saint Marathon" one weekend and gooble up a great story.

I saw harsh reviews saying that its the new Transformers 2 = awful awful awful movie. But I agree with "B Nice" that Transformers 2 wasn't that bad. Take the movie for what it is: just an action packed summer blockbuster with comedy and a hot chick. What did you expect, a Best Picture out of Transformers 2? Of course not. Enjoy the special effects and stop criticizing the rest (sorry had to vent and defend Transformers 2, its decent, not terrible... like this one). But something like Boondock Saints 2 deserves more criticism than Transformers because the first is a cult classic and a new addition to the series may devalue the first. I agree with the average rating for this movie - 3 stars. I feel I had to voice my opinion because there's two extremes posted: awesome or awful. It is neither.

If I saw this one first then the original, I would have thought this was a good movie. However, seeing the epic first one and then this, I was a little let down... hence, your people's references to Transformers. However, like Transformers 2... it was decent in its own right and not as bad as many people are saying.

Now I will compare it to The Godfather series. For example, there are flash backs to the old days and it tries to be like The Godfather Part II in that way. I immediately thought of that when I watched it and even though I recognized it was trying to be like it, I still enjoyed those scenes... even though it was a little unoriginal.

The movie as a whole was not nearly as good as number one, but it doesn't make it a failure. The character Romeo was great. The concept was great... but the "artsy" scenes with the woman were a fail. Using sex appeal in those montages were insanely cheesy. That's the only thing.
