Watched this with my wife recently. Had nothing to really go see at the Theater and decided to take a chance on it. She usually does not enjoy most movies I enjoy but we both really enjoyed this one. I found by the end of the movie I was literally on the edge of my seat for the final show down between the 2 major teams. I highly recommend this movie. Well worth a watch : Like the previous reviewer stated. It did feel like a "Real" hockey movie. Seems these days it is really hard to capture that real sport feel without also going too far and making it very hokey. I will for sure buy <more>
this one on DVD when it comes out. This movie did seem very fresh and original. Seems almost every movie that has come out the past few years have been recycled from other movie ideas. Great to have a fresh take on a hockey movie, especially one based on a true story. Nice to see Jay Baruchel as a co-writer as well. Great job.
494th Review: One of the best, the very best, sport comedy out there (by intelearts)
This is a lot smarter than some reviewers are giving it credit for - it's tough, even nasty on the ice, but seriously not only laugh out loud, but it's also a wonderful inspirational film that both moved and surprised this reviewer.Full of great performances, especially Seann WIlliam Scott and Jay Baruchel who co-wrote and Liev Schrieber, the surprise though is Kim Coates, who with over 40 films to his credit, is a well-known face, but here is seriously the most realistic coach I've seen on film in a while.If you like sports movies you should love this, yes it is raw in the <more>
fights and the language, but that's where a lot of the real laughs come from - but what makes this really worth watching is that it's about the unsung hero, the underdog, the loser finding love, finding a home, and I for one loved every minute of it.
I finally endured 2 hours of The Artist and was very disappointed that it had no depth and no plot. I paid to go to a movie that made me fall asleep midway through the film. So when I came across GOON I was so happy I found a film with so much heart. About 2/3's of the way through the movie, I thought it was a stroke of brilliance to have the main character suspended from hockey for one game so that the viewer could focus on the protagonist's moment of reflection. When Doug finally comes up with my stomach light needs your stomach light and we could both phone home together from ET, I <more>
was struck by how many levels this movie goes after. Instead of being fuelled by toxic jealousy from Xavier, we get a humble little proposal of a solution from Doug in the form of a bedtime soliloquy. Yes there's the comedy, the hockey action,there's a love interest, but for me what struck me the most was the brotherly relationships that these guys have for each other.They end up having to protect each other because they are all on the same team and no one wants to get hurt real bad. The other great scene involves Doug and Ross in the diner at 3am. Totally unexpected. These two goons end up discussing how they mutually respect each other and then Ross tells Doug that if boundaries are crossed, Ross is not going down without a fight because he wants to retire a fighting hero. It seemed like such a civilized, gentlemanly exchange between the two. Personally I never like to watch hockey games in real life, but I definitely understood the guerrilla mentality of these men, and the compassion they have for one another on and off the ice.Goon actually made me think whereas the Academy Award winning picture The Artist made me yawn.
One of my all-time favorite comedies is Slap Shot, so I had at least a marginal interest in seeing Goon. After reading a recent interview with Baruchel in the Vancouver Sun, the movie sounded like it just might have the heart to carry the flame that Slap Shot lit. Sure, no question, Goon comes off as somewhat of an homage, but it's done right, not overtly, balancing the necessary brutality and tastelessness with just enough sweetness. Which is a hell of a lot more than I can say for that pitiful attempt at a Slap Shot sequel.I'm also not usually a fan of Seann William Scott's <more>
typecast everybrah, but his portrayal of Dougie Glatt as a soft-spoken and polite bruiser really is charming. The movie's not without its flaws: Sure, Baruchel's character is irritating and barely necessary, and Eugene Levy is tragically underused, and the subplot with the love interest is kinda out-of-place, but I overlooked those things because the meat of the movie is gold. The comedy is solid, the teammate/coach characters are amazing, and the film's sheer love of the game really, really shines through.So my recommendation is ya pick up a twelve of Moosehead, throw on your old Chiefs jersey, and hunker down for a lot of laughs.
This film is basically for any hockey fan out there, that enjoys a film about the sport, it's not as great as slap shot 1, 2 & 3 or any of the mighty ducks films or even the greatest hockey film of all time in my opinion Miracle, but it shows the violence part of the sport. This type of hockey that is played is basically what an enforcer in the game does, granted it's not as bad in the bigger leagues like the NHL or KHL, but it is what it's like in the lower lower leagues, it's a film that shouldn't be taken so seriously, i mean in part of the film for example they <more>
give laflamme a 5min penalty for high sticking yet the announce as a double minor, any hockey fan knows a double minor is a 2+2, if you're getting 5mins for high sticking, that's normally a game penalty.
I really enjoyed it. the love story is romantic. Funny words to say My Dogg Sean Kicks fists face in and is a gentle giant. kind of original sport movie. expressive of this sports penalty protection bouncer "goon"s of the ice. takes place in Canada. lots of gay jokesso to continue the action is great. on the ice is cool hockey great cinematography. This is an underdog story. A good movie to bang the broad too. The team drinks beer and pisses and spits with the flare of The Replacements meets remember the titans but Way more realistic... as based on a true story. Also the rivalry and <more>
I must say I was a bit nervous as a Hockey fan about how this movie would fare in UK. There is a fairly good following but there are still a lot of people who don't realise that fighting is part of the game and that 'Goons' actually do play the game.I thought there were some good laughs, entertaining fights and an overall heartwarming story that for me make this into a very entertaining movie. Yes, the dialogue and jokes are simple and the plot is quite thin but what were we expecting? Too many people expect movies to all be Oscar-contenders and don't see a film for what it <more>
is, in this case and entertaining comedy-drama that doesn't take itself even slightly seriously.
If this is your type of movie, you won't be disappointed. (by december_starz)
I think that if you go to see this movie, you know what you're getting into. It's essentially a love letter to the violent side of hockey written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, both of whom are known for a particular kind of comedy, and it stars Seann William Scott, who is known for playing a particular kind of character. Check out the 'People who liked this also liked...' section on the page for this movie. You'll see flicks like The Hangover, Crazy, Stupid Love, and Role Models. If those are your type of movies, chances are you'll enjoy Goon. The premise of the <more>
movie is that a likable, polite, not-exactly-bright bouncer, Doug Glatt, is invited to join a semi-professional hockey team as an enforcer. I think what I chiefly liked about the film was that yes, there's lewd and crude humour and a somewhat predictable plot line, but you'll like the characters and at no point does the movie start to drag or fail to entertain. I was also pleased to see that, as a Canadian hockey fan myself, I wasn't spoon-fed easy stereotype jokes. The things that were funny hadn't been recycled a hundred times in every other movie that pointedly features Canada as a setting. The characters do drag out the old 'eh' every now and again, but you feel more like it's a wink to Baruchel's home audience rather than something intended to hit you over the head with a 'SEE, we're in CANADA!'Bottom line: This flick isn't going to win any Oscars. But if you want to see something thoroughly entertaining, it's a good bet. If you don't laugh at least once, you're - probably my grandmother.
There is one element that distinguishes a "great" sports movie from a "good" sports movie. It's "the feel". It doesn't matter if the movie is about baseball, basketball, football or hockey. If it doesn't smack of authenticity you might as well flip over to a live game. "The Natural" had the feel of baseball and for hockey "Slapshot" has always been the template for the great hockey movie. I happily add "Goon" to that rarefied space.As far as movie making goes, it has all the right stuff. The acting is convincing and <more>
solid, the jokes are funny and there is lots of on-ice action. But the defining feature of this film is that it feels real. It feels like these are real guys playing a real game in front of real fans. True hockey fans will get the in jokes, wince at the ankle injury, relate to the dressing room banter, and feel tempted to yell "head's up" when the bad guy starts to take a run at the little guy.The key scene is, of course, the final showdown between "good goon" and "bad goon". We know it's coming, but sometimes we know the NHL fights are inevitable, as the tough guys line up before the face-off and start jabbering. The build-up is just as visceral in "Goon", and when they finally drop the gloves it reminded me of that great final shoot-out scene in "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly", as the guys do the pre-fight strip tease and wait for other to draw first.I will risk the wrath of my fellow hockey fans who have grown up worshipping at the church of "Slapshot". It was a great movie, although a bit long. I found "Goon" to be more entertaining, as authentic and more believable. Nice work guys!
