Even by cult film standards, Troy Duffy‘s The Boondock Saints is a divisive one. Defenders love the off-kilter McManus boys and their dedication to vigilante ultraviolence; detractors (myself included) find it to be Tarantino lite without any of the master filmmaker’s originality, intelligence, or soul. You need only look at the film’s 17% critics’ approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 93% user approval rating to see that all moviegoers are decidedly not on the same page here.
