A disappointing return for Idris Elba’s detective
Luther: The Fallen Sun is a Netflix film that serves as a continuation of the BBC series Luther, starring Idris Elba as John Luther, a brilliant but troubled detective who breaks out of prison to hunt down a serial killer. While fans of the show might be excited to see Elba reprise his iconic role, they will likely be let down by this film’s lackluster plot, weak villain and wasted potential.
The film suffers from a lack of originality and suspense, as it recycles many elements from previous seasons of Luther, such as Luther’s relationship with Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson), his former partner Justin Ripley (Warren Brown) and his new ally Angela Rose (Cynthia Erivo). The serial killer, played by Andy Serkis, is a cartoonish and unconvincing antagonist who has a vague motive and an unrealistic plan. The film also fails to explore Luther’s character development or moral dilemmas, instead relying on clichés and contrivances.
The only saving grace of this film is Idris Elba’s performance, which is still charismatic and compelling despite the weak material. He manages to convey Luther’s inner turmoil and determination with subtlety and intensity. However, even he cannot elevate this film above its mediocrity. Luther: The Fallen Sun is a disappointing return for one of TV’s most complex and captivating detectives.
I have never been a fan of idris Elba but there are two things he was superd in, the movie “mountain” and the TV series “Luther”, this BBC TV movie “fallen sun” was garbage because yet again it was aimed at the American market, nothing about it felt realistic or even plausible, add in the ridiculous stunts of vehicles exceeding the 20mph speed limit of piccadilly circus with cars and busses careining out of control fast n furious style and we have the biggest joke going then throw in Andy Serkis as the evil genius bad guy that goes toe to toe with Elba in hand to hand combat and we get farce on a massive scale, what should have been a slick and gritty addition to the Luther series becomes nothing more than balderdash but to make things even worse is the addition of Cynthia Erivo in one of the most unbelievable roles as a police detective, sadly even the brilliant Vincent Regan and Dermot Cowley couldn’t breathe life into this dead donkey of a movie.
