3.5 out of 10 Not Morris at his best
Brock from Limerick, 08 Sep 2011
HUGE fan of Chris Morris, he is a big hero. Check Brass Eye, Blue Jam, The Day Today to name just a few. However, directorial debut is a bit of a let down. Aside form a few laughs, there is no 3-dimesion to the characters and the film does not hold together well as a linear piece.

3.5 out of 10 Original and mostly good
Donal from Cork, 07 Jun 2011
Okay, some of the humour is a bit silly slapstick, but on the other hand there are very good acting performances and a few really funny characters. A bittersweet comedy. There are extras on the dvd that give some background colour to the story, that are worth watching.

4 out of 10 A shocking comedy/funny drama..
Aimee from Galway, 13 Jan 2011
I enjoyed watching this but it did leave me a little confused with some of the plot holes. But as long as I don't dwell on them I can remember the really good bits, and there are many.

1.5 out of 10 Four Lions
Frances from Clare, 18 Feb 2011
Four British Muslims efforts to become terrorists turns into not a lot more that slapstick comedy. There are a few laughs but all in all quite forgettable.

4.5 out of 10 We loved it!
Donal from Galway, 26 Oct 2010
A very funny movie. It could have happened like this. It makes you think about prejudice and how it could affect things in very different ways.

What's it about....
Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that - while terrorism is about ideology - it can also be about idiots.
