Plot / Synopsis

Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) is a very nice but also not very bright man who feels ostracized from his family, his father and brother both being doctors. One day he visits a minor league hockey game with his friend Ryan (Jay Baruchel). Ryan taunts the visiting team during a fight and one of their players climbs into the stands. Doug, in defense of his friend, headbutts the hockey player and knocks him out, which prompts the rest of the crowd to cheer him. Soon after, Doug gets a phone call from the coach of his home team who offers him a job as an enforcer, a players whose role is to protect his teammates and acts as a deterrent by hitting or fighting opposing players who take liberties with his teammates. Written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, co-writer of Superbad and Pineapple Express.

Goon Movie Trailer Review

Goon looks promising as a comedy film. Although the protagonist is your typical generic stupid brute juxtapose to dumb blonde stereotype, he has the heart. This is where it probably shines. Although the book is is based on received mostly mixed reviews, maybe a Hollywood makeover will give the story a successful launch off.

As for the Goon trailer, all I say is that it was awful but decent. Awful in a sense that it generally summarizes the movie and that is a big No! in my book. Decent in a way that although the trailer already spoiled most of the story, it somehow still able to captivate one's attention. How will the protagonist goon eventually become more of an asset as a hockey player rather than just the mindless brawn. With that I can say this trailer is awful and decent as a trailer.
