Four Lions


Four Lions
A devout Muslim living in the United Kingdom has decided to form a terrorist cell to bring forth a jihad against a culture he believes is dominated by the sinful and ignorant. However, he isn't much of leader, and he's assembled an unimpressive team of fellow terrorists. As the four of them debate both doctrine and methods, they come up with some really bizarre ideas. At the end of the day, are they a legitimate threat to the safety of Great Britain, or just four half-bright twenty-somethings with more bluster than imagination?
