Noah the nut???

Please don't waste your money on this one. Sooo bad. If the movie maker's intent was to try to make Noah into a psychotic baby killer, and God a figment in his deranged mind, they hit the mark. You don't even have to be that familiar with the story of Noah to know they had no intentions of telling His actual story, and those of you who were hoping this would be inspiring, well, you'll just be appalled. Just awful.. And to have Noah's wife and father using snakes skins, tea leaves and witchery? Just ridiculous!

I did not go expecting to see a biblical account. I did expect to leave with a deeper love of God. Issues of faithfulness, family, Love of God and love of man were seen. The director simply answered the question of what was it like to have been Noah. The answer reflected The times. Movie is must see for the visuals as well as the acting.

"Noah" wasn't bad if viewed as a science fiction movie. There were a lot of liberties taken with this movie and some were downright ridiculous. The performances were very good and some of the special effects were cool. I especially liked when the animals came to the ark. I didn't get bored in the movie...but it wasn't exactly engrossing either. It was a little too brutal for my taste and Noah comes off like a lunatic instead of a man of God. My husband and I were disappointed on many levels.

Absolute JUNK of a movie

Do NOT, do NOT, do NOT go to this movie--it was an absolute horrid script--I was shocked that four big stars would have been associated with it. Forget about literary license, after they introduced the giant stone characters "protectors" (they conveniently didn't show them in the previews) and the magical glowing snake skin, and only used the word "The Creator" (as though it wasn't even God), then I just changed my thinking and thought of it as science fiction--with a slight trace (10%) of the biblical Noah. But when Noah became a psycho killer--plotting the death of his family and newborn--then I just couldn't stop saying, "Good grief!" so often my wife had to shoosh me. Sure, the acting was fine (of course--look at the actors), but the entire storyline was a train wreck. The guy next to me walked out 2/3rds the way through. My wife wanted to keep seeing if it would get better--nope. The audience drug out of the theater like dead zombies. Dark movie. 5 out of 5 rotten tomatoes!

The good, the bad, and would I watch this movie again?

Noah: The good, the bad, and would I watch this movie again? The Good: The movie was epic and the first half of the movie I thoroughly enjoyed. The way they presented creationism and the reason behind why God brought the flood were presented well and I found no fault. The Bad: I have no clue where they brought this idea that Noah tried to kill his own grand children as this concept or the essence of this concept is not even alluded to in the Bible. I mention this because they used this false accusation as a core theme throughout the movie. A second core theme throughout the movie is that they said one of Noah’s sons did not have a wife, which we found to not be the case. Genesis 7: 13 states, “On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.” Would I watch this movie again? No, it seemed abundantly clear that Hollywood’s agenda was to take a biblical hero and turn him into a villian.
