This is definitely a movie with an agenda, meaning that it's only interested in giving a sympathetic portrayal of Martin Luther, and clearly distinguishing the Catholic church as the "bad guys." Luther's story is an interesting one, and one that has every right to be told in this medium, but here it just never reaches that epic feel that it seems so desperate to grasp. There are some strong performances, especially from Fiennes, and the settings can be quite beautiful, but in the end it basically ends up feeling like an okay made-for-TV movie. The story it's telling is interesting, so if you don't already know it then it's worth a look. But if you do, it really just feels like it's going through the motions. It never quite breathes life into the story; it just sort of puts it on display. There's moments where you can glimpse what might have been, but the end result just didn't leave a strong impression on me. By the time the credits rolled, my emotions and thoughts hadn't really been swayed much one way or the other. It's not bad, it's just okay.
