Not content with his job as a bouncer at a local Beantown bar and a bit of an embarrassment to his accomplished family, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of the kind of success enjoyed by minor league hockey goon Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber). When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a bloody fist fight that Doug easily wins, the coach of the Halifax Highlanders sees potential in this mammoth sized man who is only hampered by his lack of any hockey playing ability and his brother's old figure skates. This movie has bloody violence and some funny scenes in it. Goon is not like your cliche spots movie this movie takes that cliche and take it to another level.

Why hadn't I heard of this film before? I absolutely loved it. A perfect sports-comedy full of violence, language, raunch, blood, and heart, the film's most important and resonant feature. The characters are great. I loved the cast; Seann William Scott is better than ever. Good script by Jay Baruchel. The surprise comedy of 2012.

There's a bittersweet romantic comedy buried in this brutal and sometimes vulgar sports film. Seann William Scott casts off his offensive typecasting to play a more sweet and optimistic character whose tentative romance with Alison Pill is the movie's most believable and charming parts. The film isn't a nonstop laugh riot, though Scott's motley cast of teammates offers their eclectic brand of humor, but it is touching in the right ways and a uniquely human journey into the world of hockey that is unexpected.

Goon review

Based on the book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey by Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith. Not entirely a hockey flick, it hints more than the sport. Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) is a bouncer at a bar in Massachusetts who was given a chance to tryout for the Halifax Highlanders. He meets a hockey fanatic named Eva (Alison Pill). Soundtrack and pace was perfect while the performances earnest. Seann William Scott finally has a role tailor fit for him. Humor was effective and additional live footage's of Doug "The Hammer" Smith was a nice touch (so stick until the credits totally end). Best line on the film from Doug - "When you deserve a beating, you take it." Even the special features (interviews, fighting 101, goalie audition, power play clips, e...

Review: Goon

Goon is a solid sports film. It is well-balanced in terms of characters, script, comedy, and finds some room for heart. It is well-written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, providing the audience with clever dialogue and a couple nice laughs, a lot of them coming from Jay Baruchel's character. There is a stylish sense of humor that goes along with its dumb concept, which is why Goon is entertaining. Yes, the movie is pretty dumb. But here is a film that knows exactly what it is, and the writers and director take advantage of that and make it as fun, bloody, profane, and surprisingly heartfelt as it could be.

Sean William Scott delivers a terrific performance as Doug Glatt. Doug is a good character, as well as being the best thing about Goon. He is fully fleshed out and developed. He'...

Good for the Aggression

If you watched "Slap Shot" and your favorite scenes involved the Hanson brothers, and if you go to a hockey game only to get excited when a huge brawl breaks out, then "Goon" is the movie for you.
Seann William Scott plays Doug Glatt, a fish out of water in his intellectual family. Doug may not be the brightest star in the sky, but he can land a punch. When he attends a hockey game with his buddy Ryan, Doug gets in a confrontation with another spectator in the stands. Ryan records the incident and puts it on the internet. This catches the eye of a local minor franchise owner who offers Doug a position of a goon on the team. What? Doug can't skate? Details. Minor details to be worked out later.
People don't watch wresting or MMA fighting for the storyline, and they should not expect on...
