WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
28 years ago, two brothers were separated after they were adopted by different families. Now, the older of the two – idiotic football hooligan Norman “Nobby” Grimsby (Cohen) – is about to reunite with his long-lost younger brother for the first time since their separation… however, Sebastian (Strong) has grown up to be one of MI6’s deadliest assassins, and their reunion unintentionally botches a mission which sees both brothers on the run and the world in danger – which can only be prevented if both of them team up…
