    Well, for one thing, Matthew, despite opening on 70 screens nation-wide, Boondock Saints II is NOT playing ANYWHERE in the Midwest–only on the East and West coasts. (Nor was it screened for critics, obviously.)
    Nor have I found anyone other than Fiivoren to really talk to about WHY fans love it so much. And when I do find a handful of folks, it will no doubt take a few days or a week to do e-mail interviews, etc and pull the whole thing together. Or I might just do a commentary piece myself on the two films once I rewatch/see them. IF, that is, I still feel like doing it.
    And I still need to see Boondock Saints I again–it’s been a few years.
    In other words, don’t hold your breath…lol

    I’m amazed at some of the reviews on here. Seriously, what did people expect outta this film? Shakespeare? The English Patient? You go to see this for the ridiculous action, awesome special effects and just to have a good time, which is what I had.
