A handful of young men set out to take on the decadent West but are more of a threat to themselves than anyone else in this black comedy from teh creator of BRASS EYE, Chris Morris. Omar (Riz Ahmed) is a devout Muslim living in the United Kingdom who has decided to form a terrorist cell to bring forth a jihad against a culture he believes is dominated by the sinful and ignorant. However, Omar isn't much of leader, and he's assembled an unimpressive team of fellow terrorists, among them Waj (Kayvan Novak), who lacks the brainpower to come up with ideas or direction on his own; Faisal (Adeel Akhtar), who is shy and doesn't have much to say; and Barry (Nigel Lindsay), a recent convert to Islam who tries to make up for his lack of practical knowledge with fierce passion. As Omar and his comrades debate both doctrine and methods, they ponder such notions as using birds as explosive devices, creating video communiqués with a hip-hop flavor, and attacking mosques in an effort to provoke non-violent Muslims. But are Omar and his partners a legitimate threat to the safety of Great Britain, or just four half-bright twenty-somethings with more bluster than imagination?

Everyone should watch this at least once. It gets funnier and sadder on the 3rd or 4th viewing. Well done Chris Morris and co.

I've been trying to describe this film to a mate (without giving anything away). Fair to say that it's as you'd expect from Chris Morris; cringy in places for all the right/wrong reasons; but dead funny (again for all the right/wrong reasons)?

Always loved Dara O Briain's explanation of the tired old criticism ' Oh you never make fun of the muslims, do you?'

'No, because I know **** all about it, and if I DID go and learn all about it, so I can make jokes, you wouldn't have a clue what I was on about!'

Then Chris Morris comes along and actually takes the time and does the research to make sure he's making the whole thing funny and actually understanding it all.

To be honest, every part of my dvd collection with Chris Morris's name on it is worth more than three quid, so I went off and bought the special edition for £4.50 at amazon :)

Fantastic film, must watch it with a couple of beers. My favourite scene is when they're running down the street with their so called shopping bags......

Probably only relevant if you are a fan. You could look up "Best of Waj" on Youtube but it will spoil the film if you haven't seen it, or at least if you don't quit it before the end.

I really wanted to love this but I found it a surprisingly hard watch. I didn't like the gulf between how funny it was in parts, how unfunny it was it others, and how bleak it was at a few others. I don't have any problem being taken on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster in films, but something about it jarred and didn't sit right for me.

I understand what you mean, but I think that's what it set out to do mate. :)

And within another 7 posts are the enitre funny lines of this "comedy". Wait for it to be next on film four and save the few quid. Up there in the overhyped films of all time IMO after watching it a while back.
