Four Lions

High-Def Digest
16 March 2011
  • Summary: Full disclosure: A friend of mine was one of the producers on 'Four Lions'. While this might put me in the awkward position of having to judge the work of someone I know, I'll point out a few mitigating factors.

Four Lions (2010)

5 March 2011
  • Conclusion: If you liked In the Loop —or if you're a fan of British comedy in general—you should track down Four Lions , a slapstick satire that puts terrorism rightly in its place. As usual, Magnolia Home Entertainment has put together a great Blu-ray package, with strong A/V performance and supplements that,...

DVD Talk
4 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Even for the most heady, unflinching drama, terrorism remains a risky subject matter to build a motion picture around. "Four Lions" tackles the rituals of a team of suicide bombers with a comedic slant -- itself perhaps an act of cinematic self-extermination.

Four Lions

AV Club
4 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Chris Morris’ corrosive black comedy Four Lions explores the lighter side of jihad. It’s a ballsy romp through one of the least lighthearted subjects imaginable, a wacky slapstick comedy that gleans big, cathartic laughs from the surreal juxtaposition of the mundane and the militantly spiritual, and...

LAFF Review: Four Lions

The 8th Circuit
18 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The film Four Lions is about a group of friends who are muslim terrorist-wannabees, and it’s a movie that doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to delivering a joke. Nothing is off-limits in this film, which is actually a good thing because every time it breaks a “taboo,” you probably won’t even...

  • Conclusion: Guaranteed to offend a lot of folks across the political and belief spectrum, but consistently funny and horribly to the point. A sit-com spin-off is probably not on the cards, though.

FILMDUDE
19 August 2010
  • Excerpt: This film is a witty, riotously funny, and undeniably unique comedy. At no stage does it resort to extracting cheap laughs from its volatile subject matter as is the case with so many other movies that pose as "outrageous".

  • Excerpt: Sent 90-tal, eller möjligen tidigt 2000-tal innan den nosade sig till mig, förgyllde Chris Morris min värld med "Brass Eye", en fejkdokumentär humorserie som satiriserade undersökande journalistikprogram som har sina svenska motsvarigheter i exempelvis "Striptease" och "Uppdrag Granskning".

  • Excerpt: Nyligen avlyssnade jag ett avsnitt ur Utbildningsradions ”Pop och politik”, där det refererades till en amerikansk förhörsledare med uppdrag att psykiskt knäcka irakiska fångar, delvis med musiken som vapen.

Illdåden kväver skratten

  • Excerpt: Får man skämta om självmordsbombare? Klart man får. Chris Morris tar till det tunga artilleriet i denna mockumentär som med skakig handkamera följer en grupp självutnämnda brittiska mujahedin, som mest av allt vill spela in videos med sig själva i krigsmundering.
