Frequently Bought Together
Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott, American Pie, Role Models) may not be the sharpest blade on the rink, but he’s got a killer right hook. When his best friend (Jay Baruchel, Knocked Up) runs into trouble, Doug’s ability to beat the crap out of everyone and everything impresses the coach of a failing ice hockey team who quickly enrol him as protector of their screwed up ex-star player, La Flamme. Bonding through brawls, beer and broken bones, the team find a place in the big league. But when Doug comes fist to face with notoriously violent pro-player, Ross ‘The Boss’ Rhea (Liev Schreiber, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), the gloves are well and truly off...

Seann William Scott may best be known for his career-making performance as Stifler in the American Pie movies, but as he proves in Goon, there's a lot more to him than that. In fact, here he plays someone that's against the characters of his that we've met before. In Goon, Scott is the innocent one, who just happens to have a real talent for bashing seven shades out of people. Which, consequently, leads to an ice hockey career.
Goon works on two objectives: to be funny, and to be violent. It comfortably succeeds with both. There's teeth falling out and blood spilling, as Goon delivers on-ice action of some intensity. There's room for the jokes to keep flying too, and while the tone of the movie is wildly uneven, it nonetheless hangs together well.
The DVD boasts some interesting extra material too, with footage that didn't make the final cut, funny bloopers, a closer look at the fighting, and some time spent in the company of Seann William Scott and co-star Jay Baruchel. But with a scene-stealing Liev Schreiber also on board, Goon's main feature remains the best reason to pick this disc up. It’s not for the squeamish, though. At all. --Jon Foster

Doug's proficiency at taking and dishing out beatings sees him rise up the ranks until he is set to meet his aging idol and renowned brawler Ross "The Boss" Rhea (Liev Schreiber - X-Men Origins: Wolverine) - will the nicest guy on the ice be able to topple "The Boss"?
Goon is an Ice-hockey film that is less about hockey and more about team spirit and straight-up fist fights. William-Scott plays Doug with great aplomb, being genuinely stupid without straying into some sort of mental problem, the end result is a funny guy that you can feel for & laugh at without pitying - not an easy role to nail. He is supported by a host of amusing team-mates, all with their own idioms.Read more ›
This story concerns a guy called Goon,who is a lousy skater,but is signed up by a struggling minor league hockey team in Morth America,because he is a devastating Hitter-a real knockout specialist! We follow Goon through his many fights,plus a touching little romance which barely merits inclusion in the movie,until he finally comes up against his undefeated rival who he's got to take out,if his team is to win the League title.
And that's it,the whole story-,except for the end,which I leave you,the readers, to find out for yourselves
Good but Gory,and don't be surprised if the kids cream your next door neighbours kids,after they've watched it. Ha!
The film is partially fact-based, mostly a story about hockey bruisers beating each other up. There's not much hockey, what there is is filmed in short spurts so you can't follow the action. A rather sweet little love story runs parallel to the main. I am a skater, and I think that British ice hockey is not so violent. I support the Army/Navy/Marines teams, and they would not be allowed to get away with the bad behaviour in this film. It's quite enjoyable though.
`Goon' is a good natured film that aims to please and does just that. Scott is great as the simple minded Doug, think Stiffler, but pleasant. There is a worrisome feeling that Doug is perhaps mentally challenged, but it is never delved into, so I assume he was just meant to be a bit thick. The film blends the off ice action well with the on ice action. I like my sports films to actually recognise the activity, rather than completely ignoring it. `Goon' does this and some of the best scenes are set out on the ice as The Goon fights for glory.
There is a certain rawness to the film that is in keeping with Doug's lower league status in the film, but is also down to the lack of budget. Michael Dowse does a good job in directing a film to the scale it is, but you cannot help wondering that with some more support the film could have been even better. As it is, the film is a good watch, especially for Ice Hockey or comedy film fans. However, the alienating nature of the rules of the sport may be off-putting to some.
Its raw nature means that `Goon' does not need to be seen in BluRay for the film to work.
