Satirical comedy about four British suicide terrorists eager to make a grand Jihad gesture, but not exactly cut out for that kind of work. Film critic Kevin Toma believes this is as shocking and hilarious a movie about degenerated religious fanaticism can get.

Synopsis

Omar is a devoted Muslim who decides to make a powerful and ultimate statement against a sinful society. The team that Omar composes, however, is a bunch of simpletons with very unconventional and hilarious ideas: equipping birds with a bomb, a video message with hip hop influences and shelling the internet. The question is whether Omar and his partners with their half-hearted methods pose a real threat to the safety of their country, or only to themselves.
Director Christopher Morris fights terrorism with a very effective weapon: humor. The four failed terrorists undeniably tickle the audience’s funnybone. Four Lions shows us that apart from being ideologists, these suicide bombers have quite simply gone berzerk.
