Trailer Talk: ‘Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day’


I have never seen “Boondock Saints.” There is no real reason for this, I just haven’t seen it.

I have seen it for sale on blu-ray for as low as $12.99, but I never, well, pulled the trigger.

However, I have seen “Overnight,” the documentary that chronicles the making of the movie.

It is a stunning film to watch, primarily for the way that newcomer Troy Duffy (who wrote and directed “Boondock Saints”) behaves.

Duffy, who was a bartender at the time he sold the script, has an obscene sense of entitlement. Despite having achieved nothing of note yet, he believed the world owed him everything. I cannot recommend highly enough that you watch that movie. It almost made me want to watch “Boondock Saints” … but not quite. “Overnight,” on the other hand, should be required viewing for every aspiring filmmaker.

In the 10 years since “Boondock Saints” was released, Duffy (pictured above) has not worked in Hollywood. He has spun tales since then of doing “Boondock Saints 2,” but no one really believed him. However, stunningly enough, there is a trailer for “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” (via

When “Boondock Saints” drops below $10 on blu-ray, I will probably check it out. But I would much rather watch “Overnight II.” I just hope someone has had a camera rolling.

    I haven’t seen it for about the same reason. I usually check out movies like that when a sequel is about to be released. At least I did with Get Shorty.

    The trailer doesn’t look bad, so it may be time for a rental.

    Overnight is a must-see movie.

    I saw the documentary and really liked it. I didn’t see the movie either.

    I agree this does look interesting. Something I will have to check into in the near future.

    It’s not a bad movie. It’s not a great one, either.
