Here my short review about Four Lions
The film Is about a young Muslim friends Omar, Waj, Faisal and Barry the latter being a converted English. They live in Sheffield and plan on their own a blow in the holy war against the infidels. Because of that, Omar and Waj visit a terrorist camp in Pakistan, where they promote, among other things by mistake while trying to shoot down a US drone using a 4 FFV AT, Osama bin Laden to the afterlife. During their absence Hassan joins the cell. Faisal, who wanted to teach crows to sacrifice themselves as suicide bombers, dies in an accident with explosives. The film reaches its climax when the holy warriors try to blow up the London Marathon in the air, but with their projects fail to kill a lot of people there.
This Movie is absolutely brave and actually recommended for everyone .It is about 4 totally different suicide bombers from London. But he has a very hard topic to be quite successful satire to look at. Here no religion is insulted but blind faith parodies. The excellent actor makes one joke after the other, but not lose the thread and are rarely silly.black humor is when the thread is about to ignite the bomb again and again. If the justification for terrorist violence more or less according to personal circumstances is bent into shape. It should be noted maybe even the Benedict Cumberbatch has a supporting role to the end of the film is absolutely perfect.
In my opinion this is a typical Britfilm and the film fits very good in our overtopic stereotypes.
