Goon Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Not content with his job as a bouncer, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) dreams of a more rewarding job and gaining his parents respect. When a chance encounter with an on-ice thug leads to a fistfight that Doug easily wins, the on-looking coach sees Doug's potential, in spite of his lack of any hockey playing ability. Joining the team and with the encouragement of his best friend (Jay Baruchel), Doug quickly becomes a rising star. Soon he'll have the opportunity to face-off against the infamous league thug, Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), perhaps finally land a girlfriend and stick to a job he enjoys. Now all he needs to do is learn to skate.

Review: This film banks off of the fantastic cast.  Sean William Scott strays from his "stiffler" roots and puts in a great comedic-drama performance.  The support from Liev Schreiber as hockey's bad boy bully is a fantastic addition.  He plays badass with style.  I expected this one to either be over the top or just a huge miss, to be honest, but it really surprised me by turning out a film with heart.   We can definately recommend.

Interest Range: Comedy
