** In the sequel, Conner thinks up a plan to kill some criminals smuggling heroin, which involves Romeo ([[spoiler: their new Rocco]]) knocking out a forklift driver with a PistolWhip, hijacking the forklift with the brothers hidden in the forklift's crate, then, having the brothers pop out and shoot the bad guys. However, the forklift driver isn't knocked out the TapOnTheHead, ending up injured, pissed off, and explaining to the guys that they could've just held him with their guns. Also, Romeo has ''no'' idea how to drive a forklift and the crate the brothers are in is cramped. And then, physics reels its ugly head when Romeo stops the forklift, causing the crate to slide off the forklift's forks.

** The Twins in general. Did they really recieve a mission from God to punish evildoers and from that moment on are under His protection, or are they just two extremely lucky goofs who took some random idea way too seriously? The movie is ambiguous enough to make both explanations equaly possible.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: In the first film, the AirVentPassageway the brothers attempt to do during their first official hit goes to shit because-- the vent isn't built for two grown men with rope, who have a tenacity to argue, to pass through.
** Also, by the end of the film, [[spoiler: after the brothers and their dad kill the BigBad]], the public view on the brothers is mixed because, despite cleaning up the streets, some just see them as psychopaths probably for actions such as [[spoiler: killing a mob boss in a public courtroom]].

* AtomicFBomb: While the whole movie consistents of F-Bombs, one is particular is this trope. As Smecker and the detectives puzzle over the details of one particular murder case, Smecker summarizes the confusing questions they don't have answers too, and then sits there silently for several seconds before screaming "FUCK!" so loudly and suddenly that the detectives both nearly jump out of their seats.

The film ''Overnight'' details Troy Duffy's [[SmallNameBigEgo inflation of ego]] during the making of the film. He kinda [[PrimaDonnaDirector went off the rails]], a bit. While he has tried to [[http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/10/28/the-filmcast-interview-troy-duffy-director-of-the-boondock-saints-2-all-saints-day/ apologize for his past behavior]], if you watch the doc you'll get a better idea of why we had to wait ''ten years'' for the sequel.

sequel, and why a third film may not ever happen at all, although rumors still persist that it may happen eventually.

** Greenly says, "They're either on their way here, or they're already here." Just as we're expecting a BadAss Entry of the Saints doing the slow walk, we instead cut to them squeezed into a Volkswagon Beetle.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Both films are set in Boston, but apart from the flyover establishing shots, were filmed in Toronto. The CN Tower and Toronto Dominion bank locations can be seen in various shots.



* CompletelyDifferentTitle:
** In Spanish, the movie is known as ''Los santos del infierno'', or "The Saints of Hell".
** In German, it's "Der Blutige Pfad Gottes", meaning "The Bloody Path of God".
** In Japanese, it's ''Jyokeinin'', or "Executioners".

* BadassLongcoat: Il Duce and Rocco. The [=McManus=] twins are {{Badass}} ''Pea''coats; which, considering Boston in March, is a lot more practical. Detective Eunice Bloom in the sequel imagines herself as a GunTwirling cowgirl wearing a duster during one of her summations of the Saints' hits.

* {{Overcrank}}: Nearly every action scene uses this to combine hilarity with {{Badass}}itude. When it stops being used, [[CerebusSyndrome things get serious]].

* ShippedInShackles: Il Duce (who provides the page image for this trope) is moved from his cell to the ground floor for a parole hearing. He is cuffed hand and foot, chained to a rolling platform, and wheeled down to the parole board. The prison is put on high-alert, with shotgun-wielding guards on every floor, all to move one man down a few flights of stairs. Once he's there, they even put him inside a metal cage to protect the parole board. All this serves to establish him as probably the biggest {{Badass}} of the movie.
