The Hollywood Reporter

By Todd McCarthy
Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture's most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah.

This is a Noah for the 21st century, one of the most dazzling and unforgettable biblical epics ever put on film.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Noah can be silly or sublime, but it's never less than fascinating. I was on board from start to finish.

Empire

By Dan Jolin
Inventive, ambitious, brutal and beautiful: a potent mythological epic. But also wilfully challenging, as likely to infuriate as inspire, whether through its unmitigated Old Testament harshness or its eco-message revisionism. If only more blockbusters were like this.

It is never less than fascinating — and sometimes dazzling — in its ambitions.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Noah is no silly action blockbuster with a Biblical pretext. Rather, it's the product of writer-director Darren Aronofsky's vigorous engagement with the Biblical story and what it might mean in our time.

Miami Herald

By Rene Rodriguez
Will Noah anger some rigid purists and scholars because of the liberties it takes? Perhaps. But the point to take home is the message the movie leaves you with, which works regardless of your faith (or lack thereof). Humans are inherently flawed. How we deal with those defects is what truly matters.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Hold off on burning Aronofsky at the stake till you see Noah, a film of grit, grace and visual wonders that for all its tech-head modernity is built on a spiritual core.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
Holy ship! Crowe’s grumpy Noah and his dysfunctional clan help God reboot the too-wicked world in this imaginative (but hardly sacrilegious) and visually spectacular elaboration on Genesis.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Noah is no by-the-book Bible story. Think of it as a visually mesmerizing sci-fi adventure saga loosely based on the book of Genesis.
