I love John Luther. Don’t get me wrong, I do know that he isn’t real, but I still love him all the same. I don’t know if it’s his gravelly voice, the fact he is undeniably flawed or that coat, as much a character of the series Luther as its lead, but whatever it is, the sublime John Luther, played to perfection by the super talented Idris Elba, makes compulsive watching.
I recently came to the end of the BBC series and really felt the Luther shaped hole in my life. There was no better timing then for Idris Elba’s new film, Bastille Day, to be released.
So, whether you are already a fan of Idris Elba, new to his work or simply a lover of action films, I whole heartedly recommend you check out Bastille Day.
