The story of Irish twins,Flanery and¬†Reedus,that live in Boston,Ma who decide that the Russian mob have to much power. The story starts in a pub owned by their friend,Parkes, while having a drink two henchmen from the Russian mob come in to try to shake down the owner of the pub. That is the last straw, they stand up to the mobsters and then pay the price. The brothers wake up to the mobsters in their home looking for revenge and a huge fight in sues. During this fight the twins accidentally kill the mobsters but when the police and the FBI arrive they don’t know what has happened and the twins are not suspects. After talking the whole matter out between themselves in Gaelic the twins decide they need to clean up Boston.With the help of one of their best friends,Rocco, they succeed.¬†Through out the movie you will laugh, cry and stay on the edge of your seat. You will find yourself rooting for the “bad guys”(the twins) and laughing at the cops, who can’t seem to figure out who is killing all the organized crime bosses off. I am including the transcript of the last scene in the movie, it is also my favorite scene.

“The Court Room Scene

Connor: Now you will receive us!

Murphy: We do not ask for your poor or your hungry

Connor: We do not want your tired and sick.

Murphy: It is your corrupt we claim.

Connor: It is your evil that will be sought by us.

Murphy: With every breath we shall hunt them down

Connor: Each day we will spill their blood ’till it rains down from the skies

Murphy: Do not kill, do not rape, do not steal. These are principals which every man of every faith can embrace.

Connor: These are not polite suggestions. These are codes of behaviour, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.

Murphy: There are varying degrees of evil, we urge you lesser forms of filth not to push the bounds and cross over into true corruption, into our domain.

Connor: But if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three. And on that day you will reap it.

Murphy: And we will send you to whatever god you wish.”(http://boondock_saints7.tripod.com/id1.html)
