An exceptional crime drama - mind blowing,
This review is from: Luther: Series 1-2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Put simply: the television series 'Luther' is incredible. The acting is absolutely impeccable and you'll find yourself in absolute awe of D.C.I Luther played by Idris Elba as he such a legend!
The series follows him as an exceptionally talented yet troubled detective faced with various serial killings which D.C.I Luther deals with using unusual but brilliant police tactics (much to the concern of his superiors in the force). In addition to fighting crime, he also struggles to deal with a separation from his wife (first series) and helping a troubled young girl (second series). The acting by the supporting actors is also flawless and their characters are great, notably the enigmatic Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson) who proves to be a problem for Luther from Episode 1 and D.S Justin Ripley (Warren Brown) who is a very worthy character and develops wonderfully. Obviously you'll see these all for yourself.
Basically, it's an extremely well written crime drama/police thriller series with impeccably written screenplay that will keep you gripped from the first episode. The ending to the first series is awesome but seriously, the second series finale will completely blow your mind, I'd say it's worth watching just for this.
Every episode has a twist in its tail and this makes for excellent viewing. I am a crime drama geek and this comes very close to my favourite. If you didn't catch it on TV, buy it now!
