Goon trailer, fighting on the ice
The Goon trailer tells the story of the film which is about an ice hockey player hired purely for his fighting abilities, which I thought every team did, but then I have no knowledge of ice hockey nor any understanding why they would fight rather than play.
That said the trailer had me laughing at the end with the line about baseball, and strangely curious about the film for a number of reasons, those being Liev Schreiber, Seann William Scott and Kim Coates.
Plus there's the fact that I'm really not sure how Goon is going to be played. Looking at the trailer you could be mistaken for thinking that it was going to be all straight, but it is billed as a comedy, and yet the trailer moulds itself in the style of all good underdog sports stories. Except he's not playing sports, he's fighting.
I like that line in the trailer when the two fighters start taking their gear off ready for a head to head on the ice. It does suggest that the comedy isn't going to be the usual run of the mill Hollywood comedy.
I'm keen to see where Goon goes, and this trailer does look fun.
