Four Lions

We are 4 Lions.

Director Chris Morris
Runtime 1 h 37 min
Release Date 7 May 2010

A phenomenally good movie investigating the roots of terror acts. These movies always have a risk to look documentary or too dramatic, but this one nails it. It shows things right from the beginning where characters have some stupid ideas, and then things get more serious. Acting and irony are also what makes this movie shine. Might be the movie that lead Riz Ahmed to his most acclaimed roles.
