Four Lions is comedy writer Christopher Morris's feature directorial debut, an outrageous comedy about a group of young Islamic Brits who fancy themselves bloodthirsty jihadis of the first order.

Viewers took note and bestowed it the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the L.A. Film Festival.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    A shockingly hilarious, stiletto-sharp satire directed by Chris Morris and written by a squad of British wits.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Michael Ordona

    Doesn't offer moviegoers one obvious message, but rather a complex and considered glimpse into a rarely seen world, one of utter absurdity and horror.

  • 50

    Variety Justin Chang

    An audacious premise gets dangerously unstable execution in Four Lions, a ballsy but wobbly high-concept farce that sends up the bumbling schemes of a Blighty-based jihadist cell.
