Death on Halloween Night pursued by a Knight
After the previous film’s events, Detective Knight (Willis) is taken to jail, as shown in the new trailer. A bunch of bank robbers responsible for Knight’s partner’s death on Halloween night are pursued by Knight in Detective Knight: Rogue. Knight shoots the man planning the bank heists and is prompt in imprisoning the murder. Thanks to a prison revolt, Willis can reclaim his badge in Detective Knight: Redemption.
The teaser reveals that a ruthless criminal known only as “The Christmas Bomber” is at the head of the riot, inspiring his followers to spread havoc throughout the city on Christmas Eve. The police are preoccupied with the rising crime rate outside the jail, so they need a guy inside to quell the insurrection.
In other words, if Knight wants to be pardoned, he needs to get into the holiday spirit by hunting down some wicked guys. Seeing Willis shoot down bad dudes on Christmas Eve is, to put it mildly, exhilarating.
After all, Christmas features prominently in one of his favorite films, Die Hard. Detective Knight: Redemption promises to offer fans a fitting send-off for Willis, and it makes the news of his retirement all the more bittersweet.
