-Very fun movie, fun pacing and fun switching back and forth in time. Great characters and solid acting. There are a couple of slow moments and a couple of ways in which I felt that a particular plot twist was all about something not being clearly available to me in the same way that it was made available to a character, which left me feeling a little bit cheated out of the opportunity to stay up to speed alongside a character who was figuring out what I was trying to. The point of the movie has to do with two or three great characters which are a lot of fun, in an action movie about bonds of family and taking justice into our own hands through faith.
-7 or 8 out of 10. I'll go with 7 because I tend to be a pretty critical movie-viewer, and this movie certainly is not perfect. Totally worth the watch and far above most movies out there.

A bit of a fringe cult classic, it's a shoot-em-up vigilante justice movie. Not for everyone, but a good "popcorn and beer (or whiskey)" type film for a Saturday night. William Dafoe steals the show.

Sorry, I couldn’t get into this movie at all. Supposed to be like a Quentin Tarantino movie, so I am told, but in my opinion without any of the quality. Very surprised that this movie is so highly acclaimed.

First discovered this movie on St Patrick's Day as it was a tradition of a group of friends from school. It's definitely a hidden gem! It's now become my family's St Patrick's Day tradition too.

amazing movie. Norman Reedus & Sean Patrick Flannery play a very believeable pair of twins & a very unlikely pair of vigilantes. Not for the weak of heart or easily offended
