-COLLIDER

"The sleeper hit of the presummer movie season and the best hockey film since Slap Shot (1977), Goon just cold-cocks you into submission with laugh after laugh."

-Peter Howell, Toronto Star

Soon he’ll have the opportunity to face-off against the infamous league thug, Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), perhaps finally land a girlfriend and stick to a job he enjoys.
