A group of young Muslim men living in Sheffield decide to wage jihad, and they hatch an inept plan to become suicide bombers.

  • The only reason to see it is Riz Ahmed's performance as Omar, the supposed brains of the operation. Mr. Ahmed reminded me a bit of Robert Carlyle. He's dynamic, quick-tongued and intense. And much too classy for this tatty room. show more

  • When it works - and it doesn't half the time - it's as if Monty Python were back, putting its merrily imbecilic stamp on the dark world of terrorism. show more

  • A hilarious farce and a brilliant takedown of the imbecility of fanaticism. show more
