What is the Plot of Luther: The Fallen Sun?
Luther: The Fallen Sun’s plot summary is as follows:
“A horrific serial killer terrorizes London in Luther: The Fallen Sun, an epic follow-up to the award-winning television series recreated for the screen, while brilliant but disgraced investigator John Luther (Idris Elba) is imprisoned. Luther escapes prison to complete the assignment using any means required since he is haunted by his failure to apprehend the cyber psychopath now taunting him.”
The summary follows the story of Luther, who will be released from prison to make amends for a wrong from his past. He will go to great lengths to accomplish this goal, possibly even using illegal means.
Given Andy Serkis’ experience playing nasty characters, the actor’s portrayal of David Robey, the film’s antagonist, is expected to be a superb crime drama. He also makes a formidable foe thanks to his versatility as an actor.
