Betta handguns, Become a Boondocks Saint with a Beretta!
One of the top films on the Internerational Movie Database is the 1999 hit, The Boondock Saints. If you recall, the film opens with mass in a Boston Catholic church, where Irish American fraternal twin brothers Connor McManus (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy McManus (Norman Reedus) pray while a sermon is read, mentioning Kitty Genovese, a real-life crime victim brutally murdered while her neighbors watched without intervening. As the priest begins his homily, the brothers approach the altar and kiss the feet of a crucifix. They depart as the priest reminds the congregation that they should fear not just evil but also the “indifference of good men”. The brothers conclude that the priest finally understands, Connor stating, “I do believe the Monsignor’s finally got the point…” and Murphy replying, “Aye”.
That night, Connor and Murphy receive a vision from God telling them to destroy all that is evil so that which is good may flourish.
Not that this really coincides with any religious belief whatsoever, the movie was rather badass, with a cat getting shot and lots of explosions, violence and beretta handguns. It’s just Hollywood, so don’t discredit them if they can’t understand a simple religion.
