The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest.
A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
An aging alcoholic cop is assigned the task of escorting a witness from police custody to a courthouse 16 blocks away. There are, however, chaotic forces at work that prevent them from making it in one piece.
For the last 8 years the brothers have been living with their father on a sheep farm deep in isolated Ireland. One day their uncle tells them that they have been framed for the murder of a Bostonian Catholic priest. The boys must return to Boston to not only clear their names but find the men who framed them.Written by

About 23 minutes in, Romeo says "This ain't rocket surgery." The correct expression is (either) "rocket science", or, "brain surgery". He said a combination of both, which is erroneous. See more »
Father Sibeal MacManus:
We just wanted you to know that you aren't alone.
There you go again saying "we" again. Who is "we"?
You ready to go?
I hear they party pretty hard in that monastery.

I'm not sure I'm in love with that new look you're sporting, Betty Boop.
I went to your funeral you son of a bitch!
I know. Loved your shoes. The skirt was a tad risque for a funeral. But then again, who am I to question one's sense...

I just saw the movie tonight at the advanced screening. If you're a Boondock fan, this movie is everything you'd expect it to be. It was awesome. Cant wait to see the third one, if there is one.
To be honest, I think the editing sucked in the movie cos at some points, there was no transition. Also, the director should have considered making a 2 hour 15 minute movie instead of the 1 hour 57 minutes. But it was good regardless. The movie was well written and had a lot of humor. The actors did a great job. The cinematographer was good too. The only thing I didn't like was the editing.
I don't want to spoil the movie by discussing about it. But I will be back after it releases on the 30th. Hope it gets released nationwide so that more people will know about the Saints.
