FOUR LIONS (2010) SBS ONE, 9.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Walking the path of com­edy and po­ten­tial ter­ror­ism is a very fine line in­deed and in th­ese times of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness some may seem fit to com­mend the team be­hind this film for be­ing so ad­ven­tur­ous. Di­rec­tor Christo­pher Mor­ris co-wrote this story about four dis­il­lu­sioned Bri­tish men who form what could be loosely termed a ter­ror­ist cell. The prob­lem is, th­ese blokes are largely in­ept and while they may be big on ide­ol­ogy, they are low on any real chance of caus­ing phys­i­cal dam­age. An at­tempt to hu­man­ise the face of ter­ror­ism is made by play­ing out farce in re­turn for laughs. ★★★
