Staying with our Irish theme for Saint Patrick’s Day, Tattoo Lou’s Flick of the Month for March is the Irish cult classic Boondock Saints. Now, this movie is pretty polarizing: most either love it or they hate it! Well, we at Tattoo Lou’s love it! The plot is this: two Irish brothers (Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus, who are both great in their roles) accidentally kill a few mafia thugs. Feeling their Irish Catholic guilt, they turn themselves into the police and are released as heroes. They see this as a calling by God to start cleansing the world of all the bad guys: murderers, drug dealers, and mafia members. A detective (the always great Willem DaFoe) is assigned to the rash of killings by the brothers, but the closer he gets to solving the crime, the question grows: are the brothers doing the right thing? This indie-movie-that-could proves that you don’t need a Michael Bay-sized budget to create a terrific action film! Although the movie is a bit violent, it’s not violence for violence’s sake – the gore is character driven, and it doesn’t overwhelm the plot of the film. The dark humor of the film adds a great spin to the film, as well. As the movie ends, the viewer is left with some serious questions: is the brothers’ killing spree justified? Should they be punished for their actions? If you like movies in the style of Quentin Tarrantino and Stanley Kubrick, Boondock Saints is a great pick! Put it on your Netflix queue – Tattoo Lou’s said so!
