Storyline

It's a new day for the Halifax Highlanders. A pro lockout has reunited old teammates and brought a crew of new players to the bench; notably missing from the line-up, however, is everyone's favourite enforcer and heart of the team, Doug "The Thug" Glatt. Sidelined after one too many hits and now married with a baby on the way, Doug is hanging up his skates and settling into life as an insurance salesman. But when Doug's nemesis, Anders Cain, is made captain of the Highlanders and new ownership threatens to tear his team apart, Doug is compelled back into action. Ignoring the wishes of wife Eva, Doug heads to the rink, discovering an unlikely training partner in fellow retired enforcer and one-time arch rival, Ross "The Boss" Rhea. Together with grit, passion and unrivaled loyalty, they will grind out one last chance to do what they do best...protect their team. Written by Subrat Jain

Trivia

During the "shut-down hockey" practice session, Coach Ronnie Hortense heckles the Highlanders by yelling "loser brings an orange ball from Canadian Tire". Canadian Tire is Canada's largest retailer (similar to WalMart or Super Target), and sells not only tires and automotive products but also hardware, home, food, sports and leisure items - including the mentioned orange balls that every Canadian child knows is de rigueur for street and floor hockey.

User Reviews

A juvenile, sexually obsessed and overly violent film disguised as a sports comedy
3 November 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a hockey player who has just been made the captain of his team.

He almost immediately gets out of action through a violent fight on ice. Despite his health and his wife's objections, he goes back on ice to beat the bullies.

I have not watched ice hockey before, but I am inclined to believe that players don't just break into spontaneous fights. The fights portrayed in the film are pretty serious. There is a scene where a man's teeth flew out like popcorn. The fights are so violent that I cannot believe they are not charged with grievous bodily harm. The story is not funny, and in fact it is disturbing. It is a sexually obsessed and overly violent film disguised as a sports comedy. I noticed the rainbow colour bag at the beginning of the film, when Doug meets the insurance guy in the lobby. That is surely a non-subtle sign. "Goon Last of the Enforcers" may be funny for some, but I find it too juvenile and violent to be enjoyable.
