boondocksaints2The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, the duo return to Boston to bring justice to those responsible.

People who have seen and love the original Boondock Saints will be a little more critical towards All Saints Day and I am one of those people. All Saints Day starts off very slow and after the first 20 minutes I was not liking it at all, but stuck with it and the movie got considerably better as the story went on. My biggest complaint with the movie was the character “Romeo” who tries to replace Rocko as the saints assistant. He tries way too hard to be like Rocko and overdoes most of the jokes making the movie seem really corny. Rocko was a great character and isn’t easily replaced, but his brief cameo was appreciated. Along with Romeo, some of the other characters tried too hard to fit in and it was very evident. Looking past that the film in itself isn’t too bad and the plot picks up where the first one left off and flows fairly well.

The best part of the film were the cameos from characters in the first film and without spoiling it there is a nice one towards the end. In fact as I watched the movie up until the end I started liking it more and more, so if you do watch it and aren’t liking it at first, keep going until it ends to get the full experience. I’m sure All Saints Day will disappoint a lot of fans of the first film, but if you don’t try to compare them and accept All Saints Day for what it is then it will be much more enjoyable.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.


8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.


6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.


4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.


2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
