Aro Favourite Four Lions

 

UK 2010, 97 minutes
Dir. Chris Morris
Rating: [R13]
Genres: Comedy / Hostages & Terrorism

Topics: Religion, Politics, Satire.

 

Aroview: Explosive comedy of folly and idiocy that follows four would-be Jihadists as they bicker and blunder towards their intended target.

Perhaps only the English could have the 'bollocks' to get away with such barbed treatment of a touchy, topical subject, but those familiar with Chris Morris's TV work ("Brass Eye", "The Day Today") will know exactly what to expect. Like the previous year's IN THE LOOP, this wraps up its politics in a torrent of thick accents and buffoonery that might need a second viewing to fully absorb, though first time through it still pays off generously with big laughs and a deadly sobering message. Those that like their satire undiluted by reverent platitudes will want to look no further.
