Noah

After visions foretelling the end of the world due to man's mistreatment of it, Noah (Russell Crowe) prepares for an apocalyptic flood by building an enormous ark. It will house the planet's wildlife as waters rise, but will the evil of man have any place in God's new world?  Co-stars Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins. From filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan).

One of the last in the line of Seth (Cain and Abel's lesser-known sibling), Noah helps his family exist in harmony with creation, even as the environment is destroyed around them by the greed of mankind. After a vision depicting a doomed, drowned world, Noah seeks the help of his grandfather Methuselah (Hopkins), who entrusts him with a seed from the Garden of Eden that quickly brings a vast forest into being. With this raw material, Noah begins the construction of a vast ask with the help of his family and the Watchers, fallen angels now confined to Earth. But desperate men and women, led by Tubal-cain (Winstone) prepare to take the Ark, and even as a vast flood descends across the planet, those aboard have no guarantee of safety.

The story by Aronofsky and John Logan (SkyfallGladiator) began life as a graphic novel published in 2011. Producer Scott Franklin told EW, "Noah is a very short section of the Bible with a lot of gaps, so we definitely had to take some creative expression in it. But I think we stayed very true to the story and didn't really deviate from the Bible, despite the six-armed angels."

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

A wildly stupid, yet still train-wreck-fascinating piece of work.

A familiar story made newly poetic and strange with a flavour that’s less Genesis than Revelation.

What is so economical, and beautifully expressed, on the page can become a heavy, lumbering beast when translated into conventional narrative.

Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture's most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious.

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

Fantastic, wild performance by Crowe couldn't save this film from diverting from the 'plot' and giant rock monsters

This movie is just that! Wet and sad. It's should of been more like "Nooooo...Aaaargh!" Yeah, kill me now. How do I ask for a refund on my time?

A biblical dramatisation which didn't do the Bible or the audience justice. Interminable and lowest common denominator stuff.

It will make for a resonable movie under the name of Tom's deluge but certainly not Noah. When using such a title, people expect to see something similar to the true account. Facts screwed up in this film: 1. Noah's sons were already married by the time they boarded the ark. 2.Noahs first born, Shem, was 98 years old at the time of the flood. 3. Eight, yes...

A piss take? Seems like it. takes ridiculousness to new levels. Believers must be left totally confused, however, a good job was done of demonstrating how blind faith can be used to justify anything. Peter Jackson would have been proud if it were another in the middle earth yarns.

Noah Great premis for an amazing film, based on a pretty top selling book. Epic to watch, the stregth of will an struggles that a father went through doing what he felt was right. Tough. Like in 'Incredibles' -"Im not strong enough" or 'V For Vendetta' -"I dare do all that maybe become a man"... Along with a for TreeBeard look-a-likes!

The best part of the movie was the Ice cream. Save your money, buy an Ice cream.

Absolute rubbish. Thank goodness the person I went with paid as I would have been really annoyed paying for this movie. The absolute worst acting by Russell Crowe who was mis-cast

This was meant to be a biblical movie but was over dramatize with Hollywood influence. Had waited awhile to watch Noah with high expectation but was let down with great disappointment. It's boring and it felt like the movie has drag on for too long, but it was just over two hours long. Not a family movie and 'Parents' please don't take your kids as I have...

I think I've seen worse but I can't think of any. Interminable, tries to out-do Lord of the Rings- and fails. Don't waste your money.
