Film-Buff Movie Reviews


THE BOONDOCK SAINTS (1999) ***

This film came highly recommended by a number of people. Even still, I had my doubts about it. Now having seen it, I must agree with my friends. This is a pretty good little movie.

After a bar brawl entanglement with the Russian mob, two Boston-Irish brothers learn what itís like to mess with organized crime and are attacked at their apartment. One is left to live, and the other taken out to die. Sheer passion and brotherly love thwart the assassination and leave their assailants dead. An FBI crime scene investigator steps in to put the pieces of the puzzle together. But thatís just the tip of the iceberg when the press dubs the brothers as Saints, for being the underdogs and killing these horrible mobsters in self-defence.
