This one of the movies that listed in my must watch list. This movie is about the stupidity of five men who later become only four men who desperate to become a Jihadist by making bombs and blow themselves up. Their main objective is to enter heaven. This brilliantly conceptualised film shows that while terrorism is about ideology and bravery it can also be about idiots. Idiocy that were narrated not only towards the stupid five men of terrorists but also to the anti-terrorist force.
Just look at the poster, you'll be wondering why the hell would a crow be equipped with a bomb. The fanatical terrorist wannabe try to train crows to do the bombing because one of them is not brave enough to bomb himself and leave his dad. But at last he bomb himself while moving explosive together with a mob of sheep. So there goes the four lions name to symbolise another four of them. But the story revolve around the five men.
They fight to decide either to bomb a mosque, internet or anything in order to make the Muslim world to rise, they go to training camp and accidentally kill Osama Bin Laden, they make the abundant of Jihadist video while using AK 47 replica of dildo size, they dressed in stupid looking costume and equipped with bomb, the special forces team were too dumb too acknowledge which is what and what and at last the four men become intentionally and unintentionally suicide bomber of the great city London.
Christopher Morris have really done a good job although with lots of obstacle while he try to realise this movie. The project was originally rejected by both the BBC and Channel 4 as being too controversial but Moazzam Begg never feel there's nothing wrong with the script that could touch the sensitivity of Muslims. So he try to collect fund from his fan and in return they can become extras in the movie and at last he produce this superb movie. His plot of emotionally engaging farce is undeniably brilliant.
