In the vein of Hot Fuzz, this film is both comedic, suspenseful, goofy and entertaining. Did someone wreck it by telling me this is a Canadian movie? Unlike our music scene, Canadian-trademarked films don’t often get the credit they deserve. I’m convinced that if you are a hockey fan you will especially enjoy the obvious exaggerated caricatures of key NHL officials. This must be a Canadian movie! The plot is so ridiculous that right from the “drop of the puck” your into its quirkiness right away.  Both lead actors are compelling to watch without feeling like you’re watching the same old “unlikely partners turn into best friends” cop scenario. I cannot stress again that if you’re a hockey “super fan” you will get more out of it than I did. Although calling the IHL Commissioner Buttman is genius!
