Seann William Scott Shines Once Again With ‘Goon: Last of the Enforcers’

goon1

As far as hockey movies go, it will be hard to top 2011’s Goon (unless you throw Slap Shot into the mix). Director Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote and starred in the original, takes on the challenging task of ensuring the franchise doesn’t have a sophomore slum with Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Thankfully, he succeeds with flying colors.

Team first and fearless “goon” Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) is back, and during the story’s first act he’s named team captain. Doug’s joy is short-lived after a bloody confrontation with hockey terror Anders Cain (Wyatt Russell) leads to his temporary retirement. With his wife Eva (Alison Pill) expecting their first baby, Doug lands a dead end desk job to pay the bills.

When Anders joins The Highlanders, Doug’s team goes on a losing streak mainly thanks to Anders’ divisive and violent nature. With The Highlanders at their lowest ebb, Doug may have a shot to rejoin the squad once he gets back into playing shape. Helping Doug get back into hockey fighting shape is his old nemesis Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber). Baruchel also returns as our protagonist’s vulgar best buddy Pat, with Elisha Cuthbert starring as Eva’s crass but lovable BFF Mary.

Goon: Last of the Enforcers predictably doesn’t take any of the proceedings any seriously, and Baruchel unabashedly puts a ton of sport movie tropes into his narrative. Everyone looks like they’re having a great time, and once again Sean William Scott is winning as the ultimately kindhearted enforcer.

The ensemble of Goon: Last of the Enforcers have the best comedic moments in the film, and a big part of the comedy’s success lies in letting the supporting cast have their respective moments in the sun (T.J. Miller nearly steals the show as an obnoxious sportscaster).

Goon: Last of the Enforcers opens in theaters and Digital HD September 1st, and if you’re looking for a winning comedy with a ton of laughs and a bit of heart (not to mention a plethora of fisticuffs), then this movie should be right up your alley.

Seann William Scott Brings Back “Thug” Life In ‘Goon: Last of the Enforcers’

goon2

Movie fans may argue that cult classic Goon is the greatest hockey film ever, while others may deem Paul Newman’s Slap Shot as holding that title. The great news for Goon fans is Seann William Scott is back as Doug “The Thug” Glatt in Goon: Last of the Enforcers, a movie that marks the directing debut of Jay Baruchel (How To Train Your Dragon, This Is The End).

This time out Doug is deeply settled into domestic life as he’s an insurance salesman who’s attempting to support his pregnant wife Eva (Alison Pill). Being a family man should lead a person to stay away from the dangers of the puck, but Doug’s a different beast and he decides to make a comeback.

Goon was not an overnight sensation when it came out in 2011, but Goon: Last of the Enforcers has a built in audience. Fans will be able to see if the sequel was worth the wait when it hits theaters and On Demand September 1.
