Misdaadfilm waarin twee Ierse broers (Sean Patrick Flanery en Norman Reedus) in Boston door toeval afrekenen met Russische maffiabazen. Ze worden niet gestraft maar als engelen gezien. Dit geeft ze het idee om alle 'slechte' mensen te vermoorden. Inspecteur Smecker (Willem Defoe) staat voor de taak de moordenaars te pakken, alhoewel hij het eigenlijk met de boeven eens is. Movies.com schrijft: The shots are smooth, the multiple action scenes cool (think Woo), and the characters have some good moments. You get a real sense of brotherhood and playfulness between Connor and Murphy.' Anders Englund (DVD1138,i) : 'The characters are really intriguing, especially Agent Paul Smecker (Dafoe), who is described on the back cover as excentric. (...) Boondock Saints is written and directed by newcomer Troy Duffy. Being the first movie he makes, you wouldn't expect it to be this good, but it is.' De dvd bevat geen bijzondere extra's.
