GRIMSBY

A new assignment forces a top spy to team up with his football hooligan brother. —IMDB

GRIMSBY is an offensive, incredibly crude, politically incorrect piece of cinema. The acting is average and, while there is a good message about family, this is buried in so much gratuitous obscenity that the message is almost invisible. There is no way I can begin to describe how gross this movie is. Apart from one or two laughs, this latest offering from Sacha Baron Cohen is completely unfunny. How he managed to get the likes of Mark Strong to partner with him is beyond me. The soundtrack is ok and there are some good action sequences but GRIMSBY is worth paying money NOT to see it — it is so bad. It is xenophobic, racist, and misogynist and is obsessed with bodily fluids, sex and guns. I think Cohen has become desperate and needs to move on from filmmaking.

1/2 (half a star)
