2/10
Slap Shot is hailed as the holy grail of hockey movies (sorry Youngblood). Sometimes great ideas are not meant to be messed with because they lose their appeal. Goon was funny, outrageous, and totally unexpected, that this sequel was an absolute disgrace to the original. A really stupid side-show of characters and story derails what could have been an epic comedy sequel. The jokes didn’t hit their mark, the overall story and game lack the heart, desire, and passion of the original. I hate comparing movies to each other, but this movie is just terrible, much like Slap Shot 2 is to the original.
