Amazon Review:
It really shouldn’t work. A black comedy that’s basically about four terrorists, planning an atrocity on UK soil? That’s surely a film that’s designed to wind up tabloid newspapers? In the wrong hands, it certainly could have been. But under the diligent stewardship of Chris Morris, Four Lions emerges as one of the best films of the year.
It’s a perfectly pitched, at times rightly uncomfortable comedy, that brings together a quartet of inept terrorists, who when we meet them, can’t even put a video together without it falling into farce. It’s an opening scene that sets up Four Lions perfectly. And led by the terrific Riz Ahmed and the scene-stealing Nigel Lindsay, the company of actors rise to the challenge that Chris Morris sets them.

Four Lions isn’t a perfect film, though. The tone is a little uneven at times, and it’s very much one that’s going to feel more at home on a television than a cinema screen. But it’s still a daring, risky and at times extremely funny piece of work. And it’s one not afraid to pull the rug on you, either, never shielding itself away from the undercurrents of its subject matter. It’s the most ambitious comedy in a long, long time, and it’s credit to all concerned that it works as well as it does. --Simon Brew

DVD Description
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 the 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?

I thought it was average at best.

Didnt reach anywhere near the heights of other Chris Morris media - BRASS EYE or THE DAY TODAY

There's absolutely no glorification of suicide bombers in this movie, I think it's more an issue of how you feel about the subject matter. None of the jokes were lost on me but I found it distasteful, I can be a sick mothertrucker when it comes to comedy but find nothing amusing when imagining the aftermath of a tube train bombing. There is a place for bringing horror and evil to the level of comedy but all in good measure.

How about these plots,

Follow the exploits of a hapless school caretaker and his plan to rape to young school girls, watch as messing it up and tries to drown them in the bath,,,,,,,,,,but oops, he left the plug out. (Ian Huntley, Soham)

or

Loveable but silly old man thinks he's living in a wild west movie in Scotland, mistakes primary school for saloon and has a shootout. (Thomas Hamilton, Dunblane).

Exactly my view. Don't know how such a mediocre film was made out of a great premise, brilliant cast, and the great Chris Morris as mastermind. Nathan Barley was crap too.

Ordered, thanks.

great film!

Yeah they're doing it just to annoy you, didn't you know that?

How about the same people that come on and berate the film with the same stupid argument every week? and only have a come back of "Oh you probably read The Guardian"

Thanks! I love this film and was waiting for it to come down in price

Hooray ! Muslim terrorist comedy. I'm sure the nearest and dearest of the … Hooray ! Muslim terrorist comedy. I'm sure the nearest and dearest of the 7/7 victims will appreciate Chris Morris's sense of humour (if he had one) the same man, beloved of the Guardianistas, who took the urine out of those concerned about paedophiles (draw what conclusions you want out of that) This "comedy" will be hilarious to the usual suspects (whether it's funny or not)If ever I shook Morris's hand by accident, I think Id need to wash MY hands - desperatley - after.

PhilK got destroyed last time this was posted and he tried to criticise it. He tried to make some comparison about the media's portrayal of paedophiles:

Love it

I dont see why they just cant give this away for free and make it compulsory viewing for schoolkids as part of the national curriculum.

Surely the Beeb could put it on a 24hr iPlayer loop or use it as the nightly 'test card' filler when they go ahead with the cost cutting excercise of no longer showing programmes after 12pm.

After all such a hilarious movie that reinforces all the positive stereotypes of terrorism can only enrich our understanding of such a subject.

It would also greatly enhance race relations if a fatwa could be issued on anyone who doesnt watch this and find it so hilarious that they find it the funniest film in the history of moviemaking.

"rubbbbber dingy rapids bruhh!!" funny movie! worth the fiver

Great price for a superb cutting edge satire.

It has just this week (deservedly imho) picked up the award for Best Comedy at the Empire Awards:
