Did You Know?
There is a scene where Johnny Strong's character Sean and Colin, played by Sean Patrick Flanery, meet at a bar in the French Quarter named The Boondock Saint. An homage to Flanery's 1999 cult film
The Boondock Saints.
Sinners and Saints ROCKS Dallas
Digging through some independent films awhile back and found a gem of a
flick in "The Prodigy". After that I started following Will Kaufman to
see what he would crank out next. "Sinners and Saints" does NOT
The gun battles are fantastic. Some of the best stuff I've seen on
camera in a long time. In the action field, Kaufman and company hold
their own and then some with major studio productions.
Johnny Strong comes out of nowhere as a Charles Bronson for the new
generation. Clint Eastwood would be proud of some of Strong's "Dirty
Harry" moments in the flick. Fun performances as well from Method Man,
Kim Coates, Louis Mandylor and Costas Mandylor. Wish Kim would have
been in the film more.
Fans of the Prodigy will appreciate seeing Holt Boggs, Matt Beckham and
Mark Hanson as well as others from the film along side names like Tom
Berenger, Bas Rutten and Sean Patrick Flannery.
So many independent films these days are going the horror route or, if
they do tackle something like action, they just can't hit the mark.
These guys are able to do some amazing stuff with blood, sweat and
tears. Can't wait to see what's next.
