San Francisco Chronicle
Probably the world's first jihad terrorist comedy, Four Lions is a daring, brilliantly conceptualized film, but like the bumbling bombers of the title, the execution tends to be hit-and-miss. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A shockingly hilarious, stiletto-sharp satire directed by Chris Morris and written by a squad of British wits. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
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. Full Review
Justin Chang
Variety
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. Full Review
Kim Newman
Empire
Guaranteed to offend a lot of folks across the political and belief spectrum, but consistently funny and horribly to the point. A sit-com spin-off is probably not on the cards, though. Full Review
