The Boondock Saints (1999)
Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly
After accidentally killing members of the Mafia, two Irish brothers decide God has given them a task to rid the world of ‘bad’ people. Smecker (Dafoe) is the best detective in the land who is tasked with finding the culprits for these murders.
Flanery and Reedus are very good as the Irish brothers. Learning on the job, they turn themselves into fearsome killers. Connolly looks fantastic as the most dangerous man to walk the planet - IL Duce - and his initial gun battle shows how good he was at portraying this cold killer. This is kind of a cult movie. One of my best mates put me onto it and I have loved it ever since. The sometimes far fetched story line works for me. I mean, how accurate can you be firing a gun during certain scenes (no spoilers here, but you will know the scene when you see it)? It all makes for a good story I guess.
