even with apparent lack of objectivity, LUTHER proves to be more interesting and more accurate depiction of history than anything recently produced by Hollywood

Interessante por natureza (o tema fascinante), o filme perde pontos pela frieza da narrativa e por simplificar idias e alguns acontecimentos fundamentais na vida de Lutero.

An entertaining, well-crafted primer on one of the most important Christian leaders since Jesus Christ.

About as swashbuckling as a history lesson gets.

Luther is the textbook radical: he acts out what his contemporaries merely profess.
November 21, 2003
A few too many amateurish techniques and oversimplified confrontations hold Luther back a notch or two from greatness, and stamp it instead as entertaining Lutheran cheerleading.

There are enough sympathetic figures in the Catholic establishment (Matthieu Carriere's Cardinal Cajetan chief among them) to create some sense of historical nuance. Moreover, we get to see some warts of the Reformation.

Both as a veteran movie reviewer and long-time Lutheran, I left the theater with the feeling that "Luther" is a good movie about a great man.
October 6, 2003
Shot on 100 locations in three countries and outfitted with impressive props, costumes, art direction and medieval streets, Luther makes up for what it lacks in vigorous storytelling with such production values.

Heady theological badminton, as vigorously thoughtful as it is piously historical.
October 1, 2003
A throwback to the days when such movies as 'A Man for All Seasons' tackled big religious ideas in the context of significant historical events...
September 29, 2003
Completely stealing the picture, Peter Ustinov ... is breathtakingly brilliant.
September 26, 2003
Corny and irritatingly simplistic though this fast-paced biography of 16th-century German religious reformer Martin Luther may be, it's undeniably entertaining.
September 26, 2003
Engrossing, as much for its history lesson as for its filmmaking.
September 26, 2003
An informative immersion in the history of both Catholic and Protestant churches, and a rather refreshing take on medieval morality.
September 26, 2003
After a summer of numbing mindlessness, there is something frankly refreshing about a movie that deals even superficially with as significant a figure as the rebellious 16th century theologian Martin Luther.
September 26, 2003
Luther is more educational than engaging and fine if you want to feel like you've just paid $10 to retake high school history.
September 26, 2003
Actor Fiennes, writers Camille Thomasson and Bart Gavigan and director Eric Till have done a laudable job of bringing this dusty historical character to life.
September 25, 2003
In the role of Luther, Fiennes projects just the right blend of charisma and quiet intensity to make the character come alive as both a thinker and a man of action.
