Jason Panella’s review:
There's a good movie about the life of Martin Luther, but I don't think this is it. Joseph Fiennes is maybe the most consistently good aspect of the film, because everything else is wobbly. The film spends a lot of time following Luther, sure, but shoehorns probably important aspects in with little time to explain ("Oh, by the way, he's in love with this woman we just introduced, and now they're married! You should care!"). So many scenes feel like they're were borrowed from a made-for-TV movie starring Patrick Duffy (with the awful score borrowed as well). Still, the middle 60 minutes are overall pretty captivating.
