Four Lions, Trailer
Director Chris MorrisYear 2010Genre(s) Comedies
Omar is a Muslim from the North of England who's been radicalised. He decides he's going to form a terrorist cell with his friend Waj and two other recruits, a Nihilist Islamic convert called Barry and a bomb maker named Faisal - the only member who will not sacrifice his life because his sick father has started eating paper.
Whilst Omar and Waj attend a terrorist training camp in Pakistan, Barry and Faisal work on their plan. Faisal is busily training crows fitted with bombs to fly through windows and blow up their intended victims. Together the group must strike a blow on the nation and make a stand for what they believe in, but trying to do that without incident will be difficult.
The king of farce Chris Morris brings us Four Lions. What 'This Is Spinal Tap' did for heavy metal and 'Dr Strangelove' the Cold War, 'Four Lions' does for the modern face of terrorism.
