I give it a solid meh. Its worth watching once out of curiosity.

the soundtrack to the movie really killed it

How so?

I liked it. Watched it night before last.

I think it's better than the first one.

My buddy watched a film called "The Road" last night and he said it was badass.

The Road
Plot: A post-apocalyptic tale of a man and his son trying to survive by any means possible.

I loved the first film.

The second was painful to watch. The same jokes from the original...re-hashed...not longer funny...forced...over the top...

Ugh.

Fucking terrible.  I'm a big fan of the 1st movie.  Number 2 sucked balls.

Being from TN, the fake southern accent on the FBI chick killed it.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 3:57:14 PM EDT
I liked it. Agree with the bad accent on the chick. Worth watching.

The road is a terrible movie.  Super boring.





Boondock Saints 2 is ok.  It is mindless like the first one.  Don't expect any more out of it and you will be satisfied.  I agree with others here that it was too similar to the 1st and the woman is pretty damn annoying.

It had its moments, I was a huge fan of the first one, this one was found lacking in a lot of respects, almost like it tried to be too much like a reboot of the first one with more production value.

Worth watching once

Any other suggestions....?  I might just play it safe and go with the sure "Red Dawn" and snuggle with my new RPK build....

My friend, I will watch any POS movie I can get my hands on if I haven't seen it. I turned this one off about halfway through, and I honestly don't think I've ever done that before.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:07:23 PM EDT
First one was way better.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:08:14 PM EDT
It's decent.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:17:41 PM EDT
terrible

youd think after 10 years they could make a decent fucking sequal

the bad guys are grossly incompetant, julie benz has a shitty character, action sucked, smecker and rocko show up but its done so badly its sad. the other cops are even more retarded. and the mexican guy is about as mexican as obama is an american. hes annoying and a terrible rocko replacement. i hated the movie. i like to pretend there is no sequal.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:23:28 PM EDT
I liked it.  It's not as good (but that's normal, they almost never are), but still very much in keeping, and entertaining.

This!!!

Is was like a really bad Holly Hunter impersonation.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:33:49 PM EDT
nowhere near as good as the first one.  They basically rehashed all the original stuff from the first one.  I lost interest about halfway through but kept watching just to see how it ended.  I could have just as well turned it off midway through.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 4:46:01 PM EDT
Worst movie I've seen in a long time.  Couldn't finish it.  Watch the documentary about Troy Duffy instead.  It will make you feel better about it.

Sir, either your the type of guy who would watch grass grow or you never actually saw the first movie.


I mean come on!  They replaced the Willem Dafoe character with some no name actress who wasnt even a real southerner and couldnt do a fake southern accent! I thought I was watching some high school art class movie. Where the hell did they get that bitch.. off of Craigslist?
The story COULD have worked if Duffy had just made the movie 5 years ago and skipped the female character.

Part 1 was epic and will forever live in many peoples memories. Part 2.....MEH

The only redeeming quality was that it ended.

Should not have made a sequel.

You will be dissapointed. I love Boondock Saints and actually never finished BSII, YMMV

It was crap, thanks for bringing back all the bad memories, I won't be able to sleep again for days.

That movie blew like a married woman on a girls night out.  I watched about 5 mins and couldn't take anymore

I couldn't finish it either.

I loved the first one, I watched it so many times that I could quote it, when I was younger.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 6:58:06 PM EDT
You know that you have to see it, if for nothing more than the fact that you saw the first one. It was alright. The idiotic Deagles lowered some of the points for me, but the mexi-colt was kind of cool in a bbq gun sort of way.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 7:09:58 PM EDT
It has a little more shtick than #1, but definitely worth watching.
Link Posted: 6/4/2010 7:16:29 PM EDT
Go in expecting crap or nothing, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.



Go in expecting something as good as the original, and you'll be sorely disappointed.




YMMV.

Part 2 was one of those movies you think will get better, but never does.

First one was much better.
