I had no idea what to expect from this movie, and it initially seemed like it was glorifying the more extreme side of our proud sport - but this is not quite the case. This neat documentary depicts the lives of the hockey goons "drafted" by a semi-pro league team, the Laval Chiefs. For those who don't know, a "goon" is the go-to player when it comes to fighting and rough play - really rough play - rough play to the extent that it isn't hockey anymore. Don't get me wrong, hockey is and should be a tough sport - but not like the Chiefs play. This movie does a great job showing how this style of playing affects these goons and how, in the end, it just isn't worth it for most players. I'm very much reminded of Dave Morissette's brief career as an NHL goon and the backlash following his not making the cut.
Do not expect much actual hockey in this movie, however - the focus is almost entirely on the ridiculous fights and the personal lives of the players. Humorous but sobering, all in all this is a pretty decent hockey documentary.

Slingshot back to the 80's for enforcer type hockey with players living in the arena, boxing training, predetermined fights, etc. Some deliberate mirroring from 'Slapshot'. Read morePublished on March 27 2014 by Jimminy
