Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Darren Aronofsky's film about the Old Testament shipbuilder has been sparking controversy - but there's no denying that the Great Flood, digitized, is a pretty great flood.
Fresh: In a single sequence, Aronofsky combines creationism, Darwinian evolution, original sin, the end of days, and radical environmentalism.
Rotten: It's overlong and a times sluggish. The fights and battles, designed to give an epic fantasy feel to the movie, are grave miscalculations. And the overabundance of CGI often makes Noah look like a video game.
Fresh: For all the high-tech showmanship on display, this retelling of Noah and the Ark marks a serious effort to engage with the Old Testament as a literary text.
Waste of time and money
Not even what it percieved to be. Monster rocks - really! Not even like the bible except a man, boat & animals....very disappointed!
Interesting and Innovative
Aronofsky’s NOAH is interesting, innovative, thought provoking, odd, disturbing and sometimes bordering on brilliant. Unfortunately, those who were expecting a traditional, verse by verse, Sunday School representation will be disappointed. But for those who are willing to take a contemplative approach to the story this film presents much food for thought. We who grew up with the story of Noah like to see our biblical heroes as perfect and infallible. We like to think that Noah and his family were saved from the flood because they were “good" while those outside the ark died because they were “bad”. The Noah presented in this film is a good man but also very human and conflicted. He wants to be obedient to the task he’s been given but also realizes that he and his family are also tainted by the fall of man. Only the animals are truly innocent and deserve to survive the flood. This leads Noah to a series of disturbing choices that seriously affect his family and potentially the entire human race. Some of the questions to ponder within this film are...“How should mankind live within our world?”, “Who deserves to live and who deserves to die?”, “What is justice and should it always be implemented no matter the cost?”, “Is mercy, compassion and love greater than justice?”, “Do we always correctly interpret what we think God wants?” The animated sequence presented as Noah narrates the story of Creation to his family is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen on film. My favorite character in the movie was Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah. He was awesome. Yes, Aronofsky’s NOAH is not what many people were expecting or hoping to see. Sometimes the story is a little odd and disturbing at times, but this is also a Noah you will not soon forget.
What a waste!
If I could give this movie less than 1 star, I would! It was a complete joke and had nothing to do with the real story of Noah. This was a story of Noah and a bunch of transformer rock things. There went 2 hours I can not get back, not to mention the $25.00 that I spent to see this crap. I would never watch this movie again, even if I was paid to do so.
