I'm a big fan of Goon, a fun, funny film with a lot of heart. Goon: Last of the Enforcers isn't as strong - its script and improvisation aren't as sharp as the original's - but it's often enough that we get to revisit these largely endearing characters. Some years after the first film, good-hearted Doug Glatt isn't in as good a shape as he used to be and may be forced to quit the Halifax Highlanders and commit to his family full time. The team owner wants to replace him with his own, somewhat disturbed son anyway. And Liev Shrieber's retired goon is in here looking for his own relevance. It's all about the next step for these guys, how they have to adapt to changing circumstance, advancing years and shifting priorities. The hockey action is once again excellent, with some nice new gags, but it's really about the characters confronting the fact that you can't play the sport professionally forever. If you enjoyed the first film, you'll likely want to reconnect with these guys and won't be disappointed with their various arcs.
Not as good as the original but then there's only soo much storyline left to write about.
Definitely no need for a sequel to this.
I liked the first one. Kinda like that with a little feeling. Not bad
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
