Dark and incredibly funny satire on religious martyrdom

In the UK, Chris Morris is famous for the very controversial "Brasseye" series, and he has taken that iconoclastic attitude to the big screen to help create this wonderful little film. It's a crude yet intelligent satire on a group of young men who want to be martyrs for the Islamic Al-Qaeda in the UK. Rather than portray them as dark shadowy men, they are really just everyday bumblers and naive men. The frightening aspect is that despite the humour, they are aiming to mass murder which always is behind the scenes. The film uses humour to demystify the self-styled jihadists and take away any sort of menacing notoriety and show them as the frightening bunglers that they are. The fear is when one group actually manages to carry out what they set out to do. This film is worth watching. You will be rolling with laughter, but you will end the film with many thoughts on the questions raised also. It's simply another great bit of political satire, and I recommend it highly.

Not very funny or entertaining

The film was only funny for a few moments during the last half hour or so. The humor was pretty dry even for a British comedy. The movie did have potential and could've been great if they had cut down on the overacting and made the humor more subtle, but ultimately it was a pretty big disappointment for me as I had heard nothing but great things about the movie. I'm American with lots of British relatives on my moms side, so I would say I'm very used to hearing and understanding British accents but I had a very hard time understanding the main characters in this movie for a good portion of the film. Overall not enjoyable. I really did want to like this movie just for the fact that it takes the very relevant and controversial issue of terrorism and makes light of it. Don't get me wrong, it does effectively make light of terrorism, but it doesn't make you laugh.
