Boondock 101 - The FAQ

The Boondock Saints FAQ

What do “Veritas” and “Aequitas” mean?
From the Latin, veritas means “truth” and aequitas means “justice” or “equality”.

Which hands are the brothers’ tattoos on?
Connor has “veritas” on his left hand.  Murphy has “aequitas” on his right hand.

What’s that tattoo on their necks?
That’s a saint.  Duh.

Does anybody know the entire MacManus Family Prayer?
Yes.  Everybody knows it.  Except you.  Until now.

And shepherds we shall be
For thee my Lord for thee
Power hath descended forth from thy hand
That our feet may swiftly carry out thy command
We shall flow a river forth to thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be
In nomine patris, et filii, et spiritus sancti.


What language is that bit at the end and what does it mean?
That’s Latin.  It means “In the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit”.

What is the whole of Il Duce’s prayer?
And when I vest my flashing sword
And my hand takes hold in judgment
I will take vengeance upon my enemies
And I will repay those who hase me
O Lord
Raise me to They right hand
And count me among Thy saints

Whosoever shed last blood
By man shall his blood be shed
For immunity of God make he the man
Destroy all that which is evil
So that which is good may flourish
And I shall count thee among my favored sheep
And you shall have the protection of all the angels in Heaven

Never shall innocent blood be shed
Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river
The bitch shall spread their blackened wings
And be the vengeful striking hammer of God


Where did the prayers come from?
Troy Duffy wrote them.

Is Il Duce the brothers’ father?
Yes.

How do you know?
I watched the movie.

Come on, seriously.
Seriously?  Oh, seriously!  And here I thought you were just fucking with me.  Alright, seriously.  Let me spell it out for you.  The brothers state that the prayer they recite is a family prayer passed down from their father.  Their refusal to teach it to Rocco implies that it is a prayer known only to their family.  Then when Il Duce comes upon them reciting the prayer over Rocco’s body, he completes it, which would indicate that he is a member of their family, and by his age and their reactions to each other it becomes clear that he is in fact their father.  And if that isn’t confirmation enough for you, Connor calls him “Da” at the end of the film when he asks how far they’re going to go with this.

At the beginning of the film, why do the brothers get up and go to the front of the church to pray and kiss Jesus’ feet?
They have to go to work and can’t stay for the whole service.

Okay.  So why does the visiting priest seem offended and move to stop them, and why does the other one hold him back?
You and your fucking questions.  Alright, here it is.  The act of kneeling before Christ in prayer is a pious one, but far from common.  Doing so in the middle of a sermon is highly unorthodox.  The visiting priest moves to stop them because he is not accustomed to such behavior, but as the brothers are regular members of this parish the rest of the parish priests are familiar with this ritual and so indicate to the visiting priest that it is acceptable and no cause for alarm.

Where can I get the soundtrack?
You can’t.   No soundtrack was ever released.

Wouldn’t a Boondock Saints video game kick ass?
No.  It would suck rhino cock.  Don’t ask again.

How many times is the word “fuck” used in the film?
239 times.  Roughly 2.17 “fucks” per minute.  That’s right.  Troy Duffy is a potty mouth.  Why don’t you go tell your mommy on him.  You fucking pussy.

Is there going to be a sequel?
A sequel has been written and funding is currently being sought.  This is no guarantee that it will be made, or when it will be made, but it is a possibility.

What’s it going to be called?
The original working title was The Second Coming, but was soon changed to All Saints Day.

Will the same actors be in it?
It is hoped that Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flannery and Billy Connoly will all return.

Will Willem Dafoe be in it?
It isn’t likely, and his character was written out due to his probable unavailability.  Which may or not be a word, but I don’t really give a fuck.  At any rate, a new character, Eunice Bloom, was written in to compensate for his expected absence.  She has been described by Duffy as Smecker’s protégé, about 30 years old, red hair and a “real looker”.  Also a manic depressive who stops taking her meds.  No, I did not make that up.

What about David Della Rocco?  How can there be a sequel without Rocco?
Rocco’s dead, you fucktard cockmonkey!  The character that is, not the actor.  What, did you think that was just a dream?  That being said, there’s been talk of his returning through flashback scenes.  However, a new character, Romeo, is being introduced.  We have no real information on his role other than that he’s an Hispanic-American who shares an instant bond with the brothers.

What’s the storyline going to be?
Very little information has been released regarding the details, but the basic premise seems to be that the brothers will be living quiet, happy lives with their father in Ireland, only to discover that they have been framed for the murder of a priest in Boston, prompting them to return to clear their names.

Will All Saints Day have a theatrical release?
Hopefully.  That seems to be the goal.

Why didn’t The Boondock Saints have a theatrical release?
That has been blamed on its screenings taking place so soon after the Columbine incident, and the industry’s reluctance to give such a violent film a wide release.  Fucking pussies.

What’s the difference between the R and NC-17 rated versions of the film?
Violence.  There’s a very slight increase in blood spatter in a couple of scenes of the NC-17 version (in the Russian’s hotel suite and in Rocco’s Lakeview killing spree), and that additional violent detail requires a higher rating.

Could this FAQ be any fucking longer?
No.  Go browse the forums.  All of them, not just the Chit Chat.  Pay particular attention to the Boondock Flicks forum and the Ink forum.  You’ll probably find the answers to any other questions you have there.
