Four Lions

A black comedy directed by satirist Chris Morris, 'Four Lions' sends up a group of inept jihadists and would-be suicide bombers. Riz Ahmed plays Omar, a devout British-based Muslim who forms a small terrorist group. Omar is an unconvincing leader and his team of fellow terrorists are just as unimpressive. Among them are dim-witted Waj, shy and quiet Faisal and recently-converted white Muslim, Barry, whose passion far outweighs his knowledge. They come up with several destructive plans, including using birds as explosives and bombing mosques in an attempt to provoke non-violent Muslims - but do this rag-tag team of bunglers really pose a genuine threat to Britain?
