Fans of the first Goon movie should be looking forward to The Last of the Enforcers, as the previous installment was nothing short of being a throughly entertaining sports comedy in the same vein as the cult-classic Paul Newman feature Slap Shot from 1977. Doug “The Thug” Glatt has already burned his way into the memory of those who saw the first movie over the course of the past five years, and the followup should provide more than enough reason to revisit the character.
Baruchel has been proven himself to be a more than dependable comedy actor over the course of the past ten plus years, but his first time as a director may yet prove to be an expected challenge. That being said, here’s to hoping for the very best from Baruchel, Scott, and the rest of the cast and crew when Goon: The Last of the Enforcers finally sees theatrical release later next year.
Goon: The Last of the Enforcers opens in theaters in Canada on March 17, 2017, and in the U.S. sometime thereafter.
