The Boondock Saints

Have you seen The Boondock Saints? If not, I recommend it...as long as you aren't offended by violence and language. The genuis of the movie is that the brothers are devout Catholics and religiously motivated. They truly feel as if they are God's avengers, taking out the crimial element.

What I'm about to admit may make me appear odd and dark, but I am, and always have been, enamoured with what I call the "good bad guy." The man in the movies or books or history who is doing what could essentially be called the wrong thing for the right reason. The man who believes in truth and justice. The man who risks his own life to fight for what is right. Vigilantes, rogue soldiers, etc.- to some degree they all fit my "good bad guy" theory. The brothers in The Boondock Saints are no exception. They fact that they are spiritual, Irish, tattooed and doesn't hurt either.
