The Boondock Saints (20%)
Here’s the perfect example of critic Kryptonite. Hated by reviewers but now a beloved cult classic, The Boondock Saints shows that the audience knows best. If you disagree with this statement, remember that this crime film has a lower score on RT than Sharknado (82%), proving that the world already went mad a few years ago.
It’s hard not to cheer for the vigilante twins as they decide to rid Boston of all evil. Supporting the charismatic leads are sensational performances – from the likes of Billy Connolly, David Della Rocco and Willem Dafoe – and highly quotable dialogue for you to impress your friends with. There’s action, drama, and even a fair amount of comedy (mostly provided by Della Rocco). What’s there to dislike besides the fact that it wasn’t directed by Quentin Tarantino?
The sequel, 2009’s The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, is another story. Avoid that film like you would anyone peddling Twilight fan fiction. It’s pure trash.
