Before Snatch there apparently already were hip, foul-mouthed, humorous, action-crime films. “The Boondock Saints” is such a film. Vague, very violent, with elaborate dialogues, black humor and weird characters. Some pretty vague scenes even.
Two young brothers accidentally or not, kill criminals in the city of Boston. An FBI investigator (Willem Dafou) sets out to investigate all these bloody killings. In a cut-up, flashback type of style, the killings and their investigations are told.’
Not a masterpiece, but highly amusing.
