Dan O'Neill80 - Goon isnít perfect but thatís not the point, itís supposed to be a funny, violent, and entertaining hockey flick that features not only the goriest fight sequences I have ever seen in a hockey film, let alone sports flick, but also has a lot more heart to its story than the trailers, posters, and even its talent involved may have you expect. If you love hockey, definitely give this a try.

CinemaVisitor Erik65 - Rather enjoyable comedy based on true events. Super violent, vulgar and quite funny at the same time.
