This story finds hockey enforcer Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) attempting to settle into a more traditional (i.e. soul-crushing) lifestyle at the behest of his pregnant wife Eva (Alison Pill), after a fight with another player (Wyatt Russell as a rebellious hothead with major daddy issues) leaves him practically maimed.
For all of its crassness, Goon: Last of the Enforcers is, at its core, an earnest look at marriage and the sacrifices and honest communication required to make such a demanding union not only last but flourish.
Jay Baruchel (JB): I did my homework, and I had 20 years of on-set experience at that point, but the one thing I did not prepare myself for and was not expecting: I’m not always comfortable talking to groups of people.
We eventually figured it out and came up with our three visual hero conceits: We would go broadcast first, which is meant to recreate how it’s photographed on television—with a camera on a tripod going north and south.
Certainly when we wanted to marry our actors into the action, as you get closer and see their faces, we used a Movi Stabilizer system, which is this gear head you put on the camera which allows you to hold it handheld, but you get rid of all of the shaky high frequency stuff.
