Brief Synopsis:
My Boondock Saints II (no need for the "All Saints Day") differs from the source in the way that it strengthens the overall narrative by tightening up the dialogue, cinematography, and performances while removing the music from the directors band and replacing it with music both more fitting as well as more aesthetically pleasing.
Intention:
Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day just didn't feel like any of the original creative team returned from the first one even though it had the same writer/director as well as much of the same cast. It was tonally off, filled with hammy dialogue and poor cinematography. Performers were directed to be incredibly over the top vs acting naturally. I made this edit in order to make this sequel feel like it belongs within the continuity of the original as well as to just plainly make it a more enjoyable experience.

This was my first viewing of the film so I didn't have any bias towards or against it. That being said, I found this edit very entertaining! The useless dialogue cut really did the film justice, as I didn't find any characters to be particularly overdone or annoying. The added Muse songs were also a stellar touch and really ramped up the scenes. There were two weird moments when the rescores began, but the rest I didn't even know were added until I read the cutlist.

Definitely recommend, and it's a must see when rewatching.

A pretty gnarly movie. I'd recommend if you like Tarantino-type stuff. Editing seems pretty good.

A great edit to a bad movie. Ryantology has made this film a much more enjoyable and fun viewing experience. Nothing can be done to make it the same quality as the first movie but at least now it feels on par with it. If your like most fans of Boondock Saints and loved the first but hated the second, trust me watch this edit you wont regret it.

Thanks Ryantology I think I may sleep better at night now knowing I can finally enjoy Boondock Saints 2 because of your hard work :)
