Movie Info

The life of a professional hockey player was not always a glamorous one. For legendary goaltender Terry Sawchuk, each save means one more gash to his unmasked face and one more drink to numb the pain. Even with a wife and seven children at home, he is haunted by the void left from his childhood which he tried to fill with cheering crowds. Sawchuk traveled across the country racking up 103 shutouts and 400 stitches to his face, proving that this is a man who lives, breathes, and dies a goalie.

Critic Reviews for Goalie

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (9)

  • Dramatically speaking, despite its loftier ambitions, "Goalie" remains stuck in the neutral zone.

    February 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The pic attempts to cover all the biographical bases of Sawchuk's life, to an exhaustive but ultimately superficial degree.

    January 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Director Maggs tells a tough, sympathetic story in an imaginative way that makes Goalie feel like a war story.

    March 1, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's nothing terribly wrong with Goalie. It's well-structured, handsomely shot, and features some impressive acting. The thing is there's just not that much to make it stand out from the crowd either.

    February 19, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • At the heart of Goalie is a tragic tale worth telling, but unfortunately the film, despite its best intentions, fails to do it justice.

    February 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Although far from a sentimental take on Sawchuk's story, Goalie is little more than a deeply flawed attempt to grapple with his legacy that will leave hockey fans and neophytes alike wishing for something more.
