Goon 2011 ★★★½

Seann William Scott is great. He brings a lot to his character. I liked the guy who played La Flamme as well and Liev Schreiber was good. Not just the typical bad guy, at least in one scene he shows a little more depth, having a moment with Scott.

Baruchel didn't annoy me as much as I had expected but that's only because I thought he would be in the film a whole lot more. He was good in the scene after the family dinner though. Nice scene.

  • The further away I get from this film, the more I like it. I need a rewatch very soon. You are being to kind to Baruchel though. He is much too over the top in comparison to the rest of the performances.

  • True, he definitely is. It was just a matter of expectations I think. I thought there would be a whole lot more of him. If he had kept going like he did in the beginning I would have hated him.

  • That's a good point, I was glad he isn't in the film that much.

Please to comment.
