The Brothers Grimsby is a movie which in its own way stamped the idea of the MI6 to the ground and pissed on it. In this hilarious and unbelievably gross movie, Sacha Baron Cohen made me laugh and I could not believe Mark Strong can perform such ridiculousness with a straight face.

The movie did not even make any attempt to make the scenes reasonable, it decided to start ridiculous and finish ridiculous, leaving you the watcher to cross your legs ever so often.

Two years ago, Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) added a lot of comedy with enough flipping not to mention Jackie Chan style martial arts to the idea of James Bond. They hit it well with the movie which was a critical and commercial success and a sequel is being planned. This attempt at making the British secret service even funnier and a lot more gross from my point of view even though it was not well received by critics and fans alike, was well done.
The movie was both a critical and commercial failure, enough of that blame will go to the marketing because I and some of my pals didn’t even know such a movie existed if not for a friend who told me it was a movie I would like to see.

As usual for a Sacha movie the antics were ridiculous, it contained a huge amount of sexual references and a large amount of gross contents. The movie took the MI6 serious, but Sacha’s presence turned a serious MI6 mission into a whole catastrophe.
The two leads Sacha and Strong performance were heads ahead of their supporting casts and their roles were more believable while each of the supporting cast were written to be too ridiculous to make sense.

The movie is about two brothers who were separated as children Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen) and Sebastian (Mark Strong). Nobby grew up to be a twat with nine children and Sebastian grew up to be a secret agent working for MI6.

Their paths crossed when Sebastian was on a mission, and after decades apart Nobby recognized his brother by some weird luck and jeopardizes a secret operation, which led to the death of the WHO general and Harry Potter actor, Daniel was infected with AIDS.

Sebastian was the chief suspect of the death and the AIDS infection thanks to Nobby and now he must go underground with the help of his brother. Together they were to find the person responsible and save the world.

Crazy movie.
