irish brothers living in boston ("which means...go fuck yourself") take on the task of obliterating organized crime.
i know i'm probably gonna get flack for this, but i don't see why people love this movie. i'm not saying it was bad. i enjoyed it, but i didn't see the extraordinary in it. the plot was a basic good vs. evil in a sort of comicbooky way. seen it. willem dafoe was excellent as usual. billy connolly's character also should get a shout out for awesomeness, but shme. i might go as far as to say forgettable in the grand scheme of things. maybe that was a little offsides. i'll take that last statement back. there were some pretty standout scenes. i thought it was innovative how dafoe's profiler forensic federal guy interprets the scene of the crime, and that is how the viewer gets to see what went down. props for that.
i have heard the sequel is horrendous. stay tuned.
