Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that - while terrorism is about ideology - it can also be about idiots.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: You laugh until the laughter turns to ashes in your mouth. And then you laugh some more.
Fresh: These guys are not charming; they're horrifying in their ignorance, and they cause real damage. But there's a weird relief to be found in the opportunity to laugh ourselves sick at their expense, if only for an instant.
Fresh: Brilliantly incendiary.
Rotten: Might this not have worked better, and conjured more startled outrage, as a mock documentary on TV?
one of the best movies I've seen in the last year
i laughed so hard I cried. But despite being somewhat slapstick it is very intelligent and will make you think... Everyone should watch it.
"Rubber dinghy rapids bro. "
Monty Python does jihad
One of the more intelligently amusing films I've ever seen ... and at the same time tremendously sad.
