We fold our hands and close our eyes. We pray for the madness to end and cry to be saved. Prayers touch our lips, and our souls soar on the wings of faith. But when we leave our sanctuary, we find a world without angels.
If Batman ruled the streets and Superman handled the country, the news would not bleed from war stories here and afar. We wouldn't fear to lock our homes and protect our families. We wouldn't treat strangers with suspicion and use lies to conceal the truth. We could open newspapers and watch the news without flinching at a world gone mad. But where have all our heroes gone?
And if we become vigilant, take the law into our own hands, do we become criminal, or do we become heroes? Is saving lives worth sacrificing our own? Is going to prison the price to pay to change the world? Do we do nothing, stand by and let evil reign, or do we do something?
In the movie, Boondock Saints, two heroes rise under the guise of angels. They take flight into the heat of crime to avenge justice. Moved by faith, they are armed to the teeth and ready to do battle. But will they succeed, or will their wings be clipped by the gunfire of bullets?
The dance of the vigilantes has begun. Crime may have met its end, but will it surrender without a fight? Stakes are high, and lives are on the line. And who will win this dance?
In a display of good vs evil, the cry for angels/heroes to come save us, we are brought into the lives of two brothers brought to life through the heart and soul of gifted actors. We are wrapped up in a storyline that begs the question, "Do we become vigilant, or do we do nothing?" This movie goes above and beyond words and images of what lies within heroes and why this world needs them, and as we close our eyes, fold our hands, hope and faith touch our lips. And we silently call for the Boondock Saints.
