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.

Inventive, ambitious, brutal and beautiful: a potent mythological epic. But also wilfully challenging, as likely to infuriate as inspire,...

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

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.

Noah 'Just my Opinion'

By alisb2007
Don't go thinking this movie is totally from the Bible. It's Hollywood that's all it is. The way they changed the story was ok. A little disturbing because of what I grew up knowing about the...

Poorly executed effects on IMAX look terrible

By Mrl8
Monsters with flashlight eyes and obviously superimposed Noah and kin. For $20.00 take your date to dinner and talk instead of seeing a mess of a film where the previews all look better than the...


By wvu1980jenkins
too much 'make believe', not enough substance. Needed to stick to the real script, the bible. Too much artistic license. Transformers sci-fi input made the movie more adventure than interesting....

Phony Drama

By palea
From the time Noah and family entered the ark until the end the movie, it was all phony drama in an effort to keep it interesting. We new what was going to happen but the director and script just...

Say What?!

What the hell did I just see?! Rock monsters -- I **** you not. They not only defended the Ark, but they helped to build it. If there was one righteous family to be saved then this lot was not it....

Fictional Fantasies

By mkpfsp
On the whole, I enjoyed the movie. But would not say it is a must. Some of the visual effects were quite good, but given the state of the art, not original. I didn't mind the departure from...

Unholy garbage

By cureguide
This was so boring and tedious. I could not believe what a mess. Stupid and ridiculous special effects from the 1970s and way too long with Jennifer Connolly and Russel Crowe closeups staring in...
