    Kretschmann... delivers one of the finest performances seen on TV this year.
  2. The movie races so quickly through the milestones of his career... that some of the most powerful moments in his papacy are underplayed.

    Fear plays like an illustrated Life of the Saints on fast-forward. Blink and you can miss decades.

    All this feels dutiful and rote - the CliffsNotes version.

    It zips through 60-plus years of Wojtyla's life at a pace that manages to be both breakneck and boring.
  6. Stiflingly reverential, sadly superficial.
  7. I think I could have written a better script during the two hours it took me to watch "Have No Fear." I think you could, too, and I don't even know you.
