Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
The result isn’t art but it is an improvement: a scurrilous, lowdown, sub-Tarantino action comedy that, unlike the original, doesn’t make you want to claw your eyes out. How’s that for praise?

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
The only truly ugly side to this self-consciously grimy movie is the streak of Neanderthal humor. Operatic overacting is funny. Racist and homophobic jokes? Not so much.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Stephen Cole
The Boondock Saints II does, from time to time, display a vulgar charm. Or maybe it just wears you out.

New York Post

By Kyle Smith
You wouldn't call The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day a taut thriller. More like a fleshy, messy, jangled frenzy of shootouts and much discussion about the mechanics of romantic entanglements that bloom between prison inmates.

By Michael Rechtshaffen
Although the Tarantino influence still is tangible, this time around Duffy reveals himself to also be a big Francis Ford Coppola fan, but the cartoonish end result plays like "Godfather III" meets the Three Stooges.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
An idiotic ode to macho horseshite (to employ an ancient Irish word). It is however distinguished by superb cinematography.

Earns points only for being remarkably unself-conscious about its across-the-board ineptitude.

Time Out New York

By Keith Uhlich
Only Billy Connolly, as the boys’ way-of-the-gun pa, brings a smidgen of sobering gravitas to the proceedings, though he can hardly counter the pounding hangover brought on by all the mock-virtuous butchery.

Isn't for everyone, obviously; it might not be for anyone, come to think of it.
