Stunning film. Ignore the naysayers.
Those that hate this film and are yelling for you not to go are complaining because of their need for a literal interpretation of a story that is very short in Genesis.
This is stunning. The core themes of faith, hope, sin, and God's will is in very much in tact. Noah's actions in the second half mirror Abraham. This film is based on many religious texts -- Hebrew, Sumerian. It is an intelligent look at a story that has been told by many generations. It is respectful. Don't let others tell you otherwise. They have their religious agenda.
As far as a film goes, it is exciting, entertaining and full of great performances, especially Russell Crowe's. It is a labor of love for the director and it is obviously made for a modern audience.
There are those that complain "God" is not in the film. This is the silliest argument of all. The word is mentioned and God is prevalent throughout the film. It is more in keeping with the idea that God speaks to us quietly, in dreams or visions.
