Stylish and fun in a cheeseball sort of way (think Tarantino without the retro hipness), these Saints are amusing enough -- until the endless gunplay, blood-splattering, and monotonous SCREAMING MATCHES wear you down. I'd had enough within 45 minutes, but you'll have to make it through 110... and then there's the sequel that's on the way.
The new special edition DVD features two commentary tracks, deleted scenes, outtakes, and a script of the film that you can print out. Perfect for acting out at home.
