Four Lions
2010
Comedy writer Christopher Morris makes his feature directorial debut with this outrageous comedy about a group of young Islamic Brits who fancy themselves bloodthirsty jihadis of the first order. The film showcases Morris's satirical talents at their vicious best in a scathingly hilarious indictment of true believers and the social systems that create them. Viewers took note and bestowed it the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the L.A. Film Festival.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

It's possible to make a funny comedy about incompetent suicide bombers, but this ambitious production fails to pull it off. The characters are played way too broadly: The blowhard, the coward, the moron, etc. There's a few funny moments, but not enough.

Ryan Dunn: The sheep blowing up scene made me laugh out loud. Ended up too neatly, though. I agree with your assessment. − November 14, 2011 • more by Ryan
