Boondock Saints 2: Bad Idea or Terrible Idea?

We made a few headlines and took down some of Rhode Island's most notorious drug lords and mobsters. Ever hear of the Chechnyan Mafia in Providence? Of course you haven't. Mace and I took care of them years ago. You're welcome. Anyway, due to my propensity for taking various things into my own hands, (the law, for one. Machetes for another),
A winning formula.All that said, you'd think I'd be thrilled at the prospect of Twondock Saints. You'd think that, but you'd be wrong. You'd be as wrong as Little Zviad, the former head of the now defunct Chechnyan mob, (which is to say,
