I gave it 3 stars for the acting and special effects. Unfortunately the story killed it, especially a couple of plot holes that were obviously stuck in to spice things up but really didn't work. Not really worth 3.49 rental.

Shot well.... but really shouldn't have been made into a movie. Didn't really work on any level.... trouble is the rock monsters.... i started to laugh ... it was Groot crossed with the rock monster from Galaxy Quest.... crossed with Treebeard from Lord Of The Rings.... and so with these movies unfortunately in my mind, the comparison was impossible not to make. The full visual explanation for them comes much later in the movie, which for me was too late. I know its a biblical tale.... and i really wanted it to be great, but it just wasn't for me. It mixed several visual styles and didn't really give Noah any proper motivation, just a series of sketchy visions. It seemed not to know what it wanted to be..... biblical epic.... or made as a "real story".... it ends up being somewhere in between. The same applies to the effects.... some where fab, others looked really bad.... odd directorial decisions.... inconsistent in look, feel and direction.
The limited script was OK... and the actors all do well with what they have (though Emma Watson had a very poorly written part - not her fault i should add). Russel Crow played his part with his usual fortitude (always highly watchable)... but nothing these fine actors can do can remedy the average direction and narrative of this Movie.

I loved this film. I tried not to read too many reviews beforehand, but it was difficult not to have been affected by negative opinions. However, very soon after the start, the story caught me up and Noah and I were on our own. I felt as if I was walking alongside human beings who were still puzzled by the young world they inhabited; still struggling to understand the nature of the creator. There was at times a post-apocalyptic sense, as if Noah and his family were alone in their fight for survival (although when the other inhabitants of the world showed up, keeping well away seemed a good option). The Watchers' fate - transformation from beautiful beings of light into ghastly, creaking stone giants - was impressive in its vindictiveness, and straight away let it be known that we were in the realm of a god who wasn't going to mess about when it came to punishment. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find the pre-deluge part overlong; it was necessary, surely, in order to allow some sort of appreciation of the world about to be destroyed. And, in response to comments that questioned the presence of metal technology and other later discoveries in the antediluvian world, surely that was the point being made: the pre-flood world having been utterly destroyd by the creator chucking his toys out of the pram, nobody could have any true conception of what it had been like.

I was very impressed by Emma Watson, who touched me profoundly in many aspects of her performance. And Russell Crowe was outstanding: a man in torment, trying to carry out the orders of a god who chose to communicate only obliquely, leaving the man he/it had selected to save creation fumbling about in the dark as he tried to do the right thing.

This film was not what I expected from the reviews I have read. I was almost put off it by the great majority and now I have seen the film i find them difficult to understand. I read the bible story as a child and was always aware of the darker side to it which this film reflects. I did read it from the bible though not some watered down versions which removed all the hard and difficult parts. The old testament is full of hard and difficult stories and Noah is one of the hardest to accept as a christian. Because as Christians we are raised in the light of the new covenant of the new testament which make our view of the old testament seem awful, terrible and harsh. But the film is much nearer to the story that i read than any film that i have seen before. If anything it was not dark enough there was only one indication of the beings who where the children of fallen angels with human women. Yes it is one mans interpretation of a a story a lot of people believe they know but don't knock that interpretation if it is nearer to the original than your own. Ignoring the biblical questions the story is a good story and the characters are well drawn and Russell Crowe plays a tormented man that I could believe. The supporting actors were all believable though the men were weaker than the women. Yes you could take notice of the accents but that is ok because it was before Nimrod LOL. I think its a film I could watch over and over again because of the depth of the story. But if you want a children's version of Noah's ark which you can walk away from with a smile on your face this is not for you.

I suspect your opinion on Noah will probably be in large part dictated by your expectations going in to it. In pure Hollywood terms, this is an off beat fantasy blockbuster with some human drama well played by its excellent cast, which overall works despite some odd creative choices. However, you can't ignore that this is ostensibly a biblical story.. and in terms of telling that story, a lot of liberties have been taken. All throughout the movie, The Creator is discussed, and talked to - but if you are expecting a glowing bearded face booming instructions in a James Earl Jones voice, you will be disappointed. Noah gets his instructions through dreams and visions, some herbal induced, and even then these show snippets of the impending calamity leaving the interpretation and decisions up to Noah. The Nephilim (or `The Watchers' as they are called in the movie) are represented here, as has been widely derided, as rock monsters, their angelic beings encrusted with the earth on which they have been banished - but the idea of the Nephilim as fallen angels is in fact mentioned in Genesis as well as other Jewish texts. And the human drama is interesting - but it is all Hollywood writing, a "maybe it was like this" approach, which has no basis in the original source material.
So cast wise - Hopkins plays an odd old Methusaleh who has some magical talents and is more interested in berries than the future it seems, Crowe really does inhabit the role as written in the script, and special mention should go to Jennifer Connally who really makes something out of what could have been a nothing role.
