Who deserves to pass judgment upon the wicked? “The Boondock Saints” asked that question. Now, because fans couldn’t get enough, we finally have a sequel. Joining Connor and Murphy in this second outing are Clifton Collins Jr. as fellow vigilante Romeo, and actress Julie Benz as Special Agent Eunice Bloom. I recently interviewed Benz and Collins, Jr. Clifton was already immersed in the Saints milieu being good friends with writer/director Troy Murphy. Benz, on the other hand, was new to this world, the group, and their ten plus years of inside jokes. She also had to learn to twirl a gun. Watch the interview after the jump.
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day hits theaters in select cities on Friday.
Here’s the synopsis:
The film is the continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV’s “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!
