Four Lions (2010) Film Review

images-2

How can terrorism be funny, I ask myself? If it’s done by Christopher Morris is the answer. If you are not familiar with his work, check out his television shows Brass Eye and if you are brave, Jam (Jam is extremely challenging comedy that I found too disturbing and had to turn off, so be very brave).

This film follows a group of wannabe English-born Muslim terrorists who are planning an attack on British ground. Their key problem? They are extremely stupid and incompetent. That is what is funny about the film. It is still somewhat shocking and a little full on at times, but geez, I laughed.

Certainly don’t watch this if you are not interested in comedy that has an element of wrongness about it, but if you like black comedy, check it out.
