Goon

BluRay Authority
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) comes from a family of doctors, but he spends his nights busting heads as a bouncer at a small town dive. He might not be as smart as the rest of his family, but Doug is as tough as nails and no one has been able to best him in a fight.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to movies about hockey, the palette is a bit limited. I mean, let’s face it, I’m racking my brain and the only ones I can think of are Happy Gilmore (and even that’s more of a golf movie), The Mighty Ducks , Youngblood and the granddaddy of them all – Slap Shot .

  • Summary: I hate hockey "fans" who are only in it to see the fighting. Hate may seem like a strong word for such a silly offense, but I find great beauty and talent in the sport, and it's insulting to be near anyone screaming for blood, rather than appreciating the talents who handle the puck.

Goon (2011)

29 May 2012
  • Conclusion: It might not be the best hockey movie ever made—that distinction will probably always go to Slap Shot —but I have no problem putting Goon at #2. (Sorry, The Mighty Ducks .) There's just so much to like about this movie —it's crass, funny, and violent as hell, but it's also as tender as a bruise,...

  • Excerpt: california lottery Character development? That comes later for Goon , a film finding itself more enriched with blood splattered ice and enamored by being a master of irresponsible language.

Goon

AV Club
29 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The latest by Canadian director Michael Dowse ( Fubar , It’s All Gone Pete Tong ), Goon may seem patterned off Rudy or Rocky in the way it follows Seann William Scott ’s unlikely rise from the junior leagues to a farm team for an unlicensed National Hockey League stand-in.

Review: ‘Goon’

Variety
11 September 2011
  • Summary: Doug Glatt is sweet-natured but armed with a solid punch, as is "Goon," based on the lovable true story of Doug Smith, a hockey enforcer who achieved minor-league fame.

  • Conclusion: The likeable Scott does his best with a weak script. Jay Baruchel's cameo stinks the place up. Approach with caution.

  • Excerpt: Det första jag tänker på är Kevin Smith och Warren Zevon. Zevon är en av mina favoritartister och Kevin Smiths nästa (enligt egen utsago sista) film är "Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song)", som baseras på en av Zevons låtar.
