Best film in 2008 for me.
What a shame I didn't see this in the theatre.
True it dips into cliche once the Mafia boss shows up but I can't knock the movie too much for it.
What I really didn't like was that scene where the Dwarf goes on about the Manson race war. It wasn't funny and it seems like they had it there to raise the running time.


9/10

***********SPOILERS************





the movie would have been better if:

the scene in which Farrell accidentally kills the child was changed completely, executed in a more believable setting. when do little kids pray in churches? and the whole confession killing is just, well, lame.





What makes the scene even more ridiculous is the fact that the kid didn't hear any of the bazillion shots Farrell fired into the Priest before the padre staggers into the room the boy is praying in.

But it's a movie. I don't expect realism.
I like that scene.

good point.

I dunno, that scene is too boondock saints-y for my liking.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Didn't upgrade, I'm content with my DVD. Watched it again tonight (first time for the wife, who wanted to see it as she loves Banshees).

I like this film, but it should be funnier. T.H. is right to compare it to the Coens' films. It absolutely would have been funnier if the Coens had done it.
