Season 4
Luther

Critics Consensus

Idris Elba remains the best thing about Luther in an all-too-brief season which packs a lot of plot into a short time frame.

Audience Reviews for Luther: Season 4

  • Sep 23, 2020
    A two-episode fourth season of 'Luther'. It's peculiarly short, reportedly due to time constraints, as such I wasn't truly able to connect to any of the events onscreen. I still enjoyed what I saw and what they give, but it does feel a tad rushed/undercooked. A decent chunk of episode one focuses on new characters as opposed to Luther himself, which didn't feel right - though by the end, it was good that we got to know the characters of Rose Leslie and Darren Boyd. Laura Haddock's role isn't the best, I didn't connect with Megan to be honest. I did enjoy Patrick Malahide as Cornelius though. Basically, in short, I rated the stuff involving Leslie and Boyd but the one about Luther and his own story wasn't that massively interesting to me. It's a season that still has its moments but is definitely hampered by the 120 minute run time, with the aforementioned premise involving Leslie and Boyd concluding kinda abruptly. Still, Idris Elba is a big enough reason to watch, he's great again. I remain excited for season five.

    7.0/10 — "Pretty Good/Engaging"

    Basically a two hour Luther movie- Everything is top notch, great acting, terrifying villain, and Luther has a price on his head!

    Its still luther but not really special. 2 episodes are hardly enough to tell a full story. Luther without Alice is simply not Luther

    3 1/2 stars My rating is for the whole show, not just season 4. I finished the last episode of Luther that is available on Netflix, and I believe anywhere. Series 4 only has TWO episodes! That is not a series. That’s just a 2 part TV movie. Anyway, for the most part I think the show is fantastic. Especially the first 2 seasons(series). Idris Elba makes for a great detective. The role feels so natural for him. I’ve always enjoyed dark detective murder mystery type shows, and this is done quite well. The show starts to fall apart a bit in season 3 with the completely useless inquest into Luthers police habits. They need to stick to what the show does best, which is Luther is being badass and facing crazy serial killers. The last 2 episodes were not that great, honestly. Worth it for Luther alone, but story-wise it was too much jammed into too little time. What goes on should have been done in at least 4, if not 6, episodes. Maybe then we would care about these people. Especially the new officers.

    Great show, great stories, great performances! Captivating, dark police drama. Only sorry the seasons are so short, but they compensate in intensity.

    Solid addition to the "Luther" series that suffers from being too short but even a little Idris Elba as John Luther goes a long way. As usual, the best thing is Elba's brilliant performance as Luther, continuing his turn as a tortured cop who does what he believes is right but knows he crosses the line more than once (at one point, he lectures his new partner, nicely played by Rose Leslie, to go by the book). The killer himself is pretty gruesome and you can understand why Luther comes out of retirement to track him down, particularly after certain events. However, this feels more like a TV movie than an addition to the series and the absence of Alice, Luther's nemesis/love of his life, is felt, though her spirit is felt throughout the episodes. Overall, probably the weakest of the seasons, though it is always great to have Luther back, even in the smallest doses.

    Darker, more raw and horrific, more moving parts that you'd think can be wrapped up in just 2 hrs. I might almost say not quite as good and a bit rushed.
