Thursday, March 8, 2012

Despite the fact that Glatt can't skate his best friend, Pat, convinces him to give it a shot, and Glatt becomes a hero to the team and their fans, until the league's reigning goon becomes threatened by Glatt's success and decides to even the score.
Starring: Jay Baruchel, Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Marc-André Grondin, Eugene Levy, Liev Schreiber
Directed by: Michael Dowse
U.S. Rating: R

There's not much to say about Goon. A brainless sport comedy that was all about punches, fights, blood and... More blood.

Seann William Scott plays the role of Doug Glatt, a very respectul guy who got into a minor hockey league after beating and kicking a hockey player's butt who tried to punch his friend Pat during a game. Glatt was approached by the coach of a team after this incident and invited him to join the team. After his success on this minor league, he was promoted to join a team on a higher league, where he would face Ross Reardon, the ruthless player that everyone fears to death.

As said before, it is a brainless film, with a very, very poor script. Seann William Scott plays kind of a different role. We usually see him playing roles as a bad, disrespecful guy... But in this particular role, he actually plays a role of a very respectful guy with a single talent: To punch people on the face.

Definitely, a film to rent and watch on a DVD (when all other comedy films were already taken).
I would rate this movie with a 2/5
