Professional Reviews 8 of 10
[Martin] Overall, Harrison's two-part documentary serves as the definitive cinematic introduction to Martin Luther, avoiding the short cuts that the fictional Luther takes to paint his portrait. Some of the things I thought cheesy in the fictional film made much more sense when connected with the facts (like the lame visual metaphor of Luther as wild boar, that is actually based on a Pope Leo X document). Luther is certainly a complex man that combines heroic aspects with villainous ones, more plentiful biographical data exists to fashion worthwhile drama. - John Nesbit
