To say Sacha Baron Cohen is a controversial figure is like pointing out humans require water in order to survive. After all, we are talking about the man that has become synonymous for radically contentious roles – as seen in Brüno, The Dictator, and everyone’s favorite, Borat. And, I’m guessing his devoted followers are hoping for more of the same in the new film, The Brothers Grimby. Well, if that’s true, you’re in luck Sacha fans… In The Brothers Grimsby, directed by Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, Now You See Me), Sacha Baron Cohen stars as Nobby – a devoted family man that spends his days drinking in England (in the town of Grimsby) pubs and watching soccer (or football if that’s what you’d prefer to call it). Since his adolescence, Nobby has been separated from his younger brother, Sebastian (Mark Stong), who’s grown up to be a professional spy in

Today people know him as a actor from 2 really good movies but what people don't know is that he helped and helped to stop a war to make this place a better place and he made people laugh and change their lives by acting making them think he's going to die when there's someone in tahere and showing them that he knows how to act.

Too often, movies and literature depict war as a virtuous endeavor. Young men are often told during war that they should become a soldier, for honor and glory.
The greatest attribute to Hackman’s character is the passion for the game and commitment to the way he believes it should be played. Hoosiers is a movie that stirs emotions in your heart for those of us that feel passion for our profession. The story is more than the final outcome, but is the journey to get there and conquering adversity along the way. As Hackman himself says to his players in the locker room before playing for the championship, “I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game. In my book, you’re winners!” This movie reveals a powerful message that winning isn’t everything; it is passion and striving for excellence that matters most.
