“Goon: Last of the Enforcers” lists the reasons for its R rating, and in all honesty, it sounds like an apt plot summary (judging by the trailer):
R for pervasive language, crude sexual content and bloody sports violence
Yeah, that about covers it, right?
This sequel seems to bring more of what fans loved from the first movie, as it once again features Seann William Scott while being written and directed by big-time Habs fan Jay Baruchel.
For hockey nerds, there should be plenty of appearances from current players (highlights include Tyler Seguin and Michael Del Zotto), although the best line of the trailer was probably dropped on former enforcer George Parros. That’s no way to treat an Ivy Leaguer.
The movie releases On Demand and on Digital HD on Sept. 1, then comes to DVD at the more hockey-season-friendly date of Oct. 3. Maybe its Rotten Tomatoes score will play the role of the scrappy underdog and turn things around by the time the release date nears?
