I was really intrigued by this film because I like Mark Strong. He was great in "Kingsman", "Kick-A**", and was even the best part of the horrid "Green Lantern" (but that's not saying much). It seemed like Strong may have been stepping a little outside of his normal role for this film, so I wanted to see it.
I am somewhat familiar with Baron Cohen's humor. I had seen "The Dictator" a few years ago, and I just recently watched "Borat". This film was full of Cohen's normal humor, but applied to an action-comedy film.
There were some really funny jokes in this film. I laughed really hard at some parts, but the hardest that I laughed in the film was when the person I was with was disgusted by one of the scenes in the film. The humor is raunchy, and very gross at times. If you liked Cohen's other films, you will probably like this one too.
The film's storyline is pretty good. I'm not saying that it's phenomenal, I'm just saying that it is pretty well thought out, with most things being explained. The film was really short, so it never dragged, but it never rushed either.
So, "The Brothers Grimsby" is a fun time at the movies, but it is by no means a must-see film. but if you want to see it in theaters, see it quick, because it won't be there for long.

I look at films as if through old red and blue 3D glasses— one lens is as art, one lens is as entertainment.
