Grimsby: Review

the-brothers-grimsby-poster03

Okay, lets start with the story-line, Nobby, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, is a football hooligan from Grimsby. Nobby has spent years looking for his brother Sebastain, played by Mark Strong (totally wasted in this film) who is a MI6 assassin.  Finally finding him whilst he is in the middle of terrorist attack. Right, that’s the plot now the critique. There is some attempt at humor as they try to build on some of  the cliché stereotypical northern gags. Then it slides into depravity with smut, base vile shock tactics in an effort to be comical, some of which border on pornographic. This bad taste then continues throughout the film, it’s not clever, funny, nor entertaining. I am sooooooo glad that I borrowed this DVD and didn’t waste my hard earned cash  on this utter rubbish.  I’m no snob, but have we lost the ability to write humor?  Not one for anyone’s DVD collection. (They brought this garbage out on Blu-ray – WHY!!) 1-5 Stars
