Four Lions Reviews
I must admit I was taken in by the trailer hook, line and sinker.
I was so bored on occasions I only found amusement playing I spy with the Sheffield filming locations.
Directed by Chris Morris, the not funny satirist who has caused controversy with some of his television shows in the UK including Brass Eye.
I am only surprised the film appears to have been rated so highly by some film critics snd viewers. I certainly won't watch ever again.
The movie tales the story of four men who have a secret plan of becoming bombers in the UK. Needless to say, it definitely falls squarely in the black comedy folder and one that should not be missed, as it is very entertaining.
Remember, true comedy skills means being able to make fun of the mundane, boring and the serious, and the writing here does that in spades.
Definitely something something unique and out there on left field... And you know what? Sometimes going there can be very educational, not to mention, fascinating.
This got recommended to me recently.
There are some really funny moments, just not enough of them.
Great job from Kayvan Novak.
Is it a culture thing? I wasn't sure if the movie was trying to romanticize jihadists, or if it was a parody. I liked the movie, but I'm pretty confused...what were the filmmakers trying to make me feel?
