Goon

June 1, 2012

My brother already wrote a wonderful review for this film so I’m not going to repeat everything. I just had to put a couple of thoughts out there in an attempt to promote this film

Goon is a charming little flick that had me laughing, cheering and biting my nails. It is anchored by two fantastic performances by Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber.

Scott plays a hockey enforcer named Doug Glatt who is recruited to play for a minor league team to protect the star player. The all-star lost his mojo when Schreiber knocked him out and made him scared of his own shadow.

What follows are fights, laughs and a wonderfully dumb/smart Seann William Scott.

Goon was released by Magnet (13 Assassins, Tucker and Dale) and their movies always end up on Netflix. So rent, buy or watch this film on Netflix. Recommend it to a friend and pass it along.

    This movie left me wanting to subscribe to a Canadian Minor League Hockey Channel. Sean William Scott played his character of diminished intellect but over-sized heart better than expected. The plot swerves through family expectations of their sons and men playing out their hearts and last years on the frozen stage. Reflecting I cannot remember a moment of not being fully immersed as the plot unfolded. It was a joy to have a main character so tongue tied and frustrated that he resorted to the sign language of fisticuffs to express himself.
