Goon

If you can’t beat ’em, beat ’em up.

A tale of minor league hockey enforcers, it has all the bloody action you’d expect, and twice the heart.

Seann William Scott scores as Doug “The Thug” Glatt, who stumbles into a new job after rumblin’ in the stands as a fan.

While he’s a newcomer to the world of icy beat-downs, career enforcer Ross “The Boss” Rhea (an imposing Liev Schreiber) has been handing out concussions for two decades-plus.

Circling each other like De Niro and Pacino in Heat, including a great face-to-face in a diner, the duo shoot and score.
