Film Review - Goon: Last of the Enforcers

GOON 2

2011’s “Goon” was a real surprise. Not only was it an effective comedy that prized a degree of silliness, it was a decent hockey picture as well, living up to the legacy of “Slap Shot,” arguably the greatest hockey picture of all time. “Goon” found its identity early, forging ahead as a brutally violent summary of life as an enforcer, following Doug “The Thug” Glatt as he learned the ugly business of hockey, which requires the beating of men to keep fans interested and testosterone flowing during games. It took the producers long enough, but now there’s “Goon: Last of the Enforcers,” which picks up Doug’s story at the end of his playing days, hoping to find dramatic inspiration in a retirement situation. While “Goon: Last of the Enforcers” has its share of blood-spattered fights and weirdo supporting characters, it goes a little soft, which doesn’t feel appropriate, especially after the freewheeling shenanigans of the original movie.  Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
