Boondock Saints And shepherds we shall be for thee my Lord for thee Power hath descended forth from thy hand that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command we shall flow a river forth to thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be In nomine patrie et fili et spiritu sancti This is the prayer that best describes the movie Boondock Saints It becomes the battle cry for Connor McManus Sean Patrick Flannery and his fraternal twin Murphy Norman Reedus who live in south Boston When the Russian mob starts to muscle in on their Irish neighborhood they decide to take the law into their own hands Directed by Troy Duffy this film distinguishes itself from other cult classics as well as blockbuster releases because of the way in which it was filmed Duffy uses a flashback technique for the numerous gunfight scenes throughout the movie By doing so Duffy develops the characters reveals critical information about the story and creates scenes that draw the audience into the story I will support my claims with evidence so that I can possibly convince you the reader to go and see this movie at the earliest possible convenience Connor and Murphy are living in southie Boston as the movie starts off They are attending church on St Patricks Day as the Monsignor is giving his sermon during which he is reminded of the brutal attack of a young girl in broad daylight where bystanders watched but did not help He says that all must fear evil men but the evil we must fear most is the indifference of good men Connor and Murphy agree with the Monsignor and fashion their lives according to this belief After they return home from the meat packing plant where they work they head for their favorite bar McGintys since it is St Pattys day Doc the Irish bartender with Turrets Syndrome regretfully informs them of the Russian mob
