I remember when the first trailer for The Hurt Locker came out, and I thought, “isn’t it a little… strange… to put out a war movie about a war we’re currently fighting?” Well, director Christopher Morris and writers Jesse Armstrong and Simon Blackwell (In The Loop) have taken that question and basically fucked it senseless. I honestly thought I’d never see a concept like this make it to the big screen. Actually, did anyone even contemplate the idea?
That idea is this: A foursome of wannabe suicide bombers who aren’t particularly good at terrorism, and are trying to find a way to kill themselves for a good cause. Yes, it’s a suicide bomber comedy. Yes, it’s in incredibly poor taste. But before you judge it too harshly, watch the trailer because you know what else?
It looks goddamn hilarious.
