    The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A sequel made simply for the demand of it, that manages to have a couple moments where it recaptures whatever spark the original had, but is hampered by a retcon of their introduction into a finale, 8 years of radio silence, some horrible soundtrack decisions, a femme fatale with big heels to fill against Dafoe, a cavalcade of villains who can't decide when they wanna be threats or jesters, an extremely self-serving dream sequence, and a backstory that makes no…

Rocky is smarter, harder, faster, and the rest of the movie is too. The romance between him and Adrian is more refined, his relationship with his son is neither overbearing nor…
