Don't waste your time with this one. Firstly, I am a fan of the director. I really enjoyed Black Swan, Pi and The Wrestler. I am also a fan of many of the actors in this film, but none of this saves it from being terrible.
Russell Crowe overacts massively. Maybe this was his way of trying to save the film, by trying his hardest to bring some passion into the movie. I would say that it distracts from everyone else, but they look quite bored. I think many of them didn't really understand what was happening, so just took the money. The be fair, the film did get better as it went along and around the half way point was very good, but quickly it became terrible. With a poor start and very poor final hour, it is not something I could ever recommend.

The plot is strange to say the least. The rock monster characters are a strange addition and make the film more like Transformers rather than a biblical tale. Also the film was very graphic for a 12a rated film. There is lots of brutality and slaughter for a film of this age classification.

The only real positive is that the film on Blu-ray looked fantastic. Just a shame there wasn't an interesting story to go with it.

Must admit I was caught in two minds regarding the purchase of this one, the film has
been slated by many reviewers and critics, however curiosity got the better of me.
This a Biblical tale -
'Noah' (Russell Crowe) and his wife 'Naameh' (Jennifer Connelly) scrape a living from
the baron landscape with their children.
'Noah' son of 'Seth' has always believed what his father had taught him as a child, and
has endeavoured to follow the path of his beliefs and faith.
He has a dream that he believes to be a message from God, he has visions of the World
being flooded to rid the planet of the evil that has flourished.
'Noah' seeks out his Great Grandfather, 'Methuselah' (Must admit without knowing he was
actually in the film, I knew 'Methuselah' had to be played by 'Anthony Hopkins' who else ? )
to make sense of his dreams and understand what has to be done.
'Noah' has to build an 'Ark' a construction large enough to house two of each creature that
walks or fly's, as well of course, to accommodate his immediate family.
He has the help of the 'Watchers' (fallen angels from log ago)
The King of the land 'Tubal-Cain' (Ray Winstone) who does not believe in miracles, and that
man is master of his own destiny, seeks to take charge of the Ark realising the flood 'Noah'
talks of is to become a reality.
The story on board during the flood a little to 'Hollywood' perhaps, though the film does have
it's moments though somewhat fanciful.
There of course are some decent Special-Effects along the way...
There have certainly been many Biblical drama's superior to this down the years, though I have
to say it was a little better than I expected, though, not great.

Not being a believer I approached Noah with a neutral viewpoint and although it has provoked strong opinions from both Christians and Jews about its ‘authenticity’ (I have read a brilliant review from a rabbi on Amazon.com) purely as a film it totally occupies the fantasy genre. The film definitely has the feel of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy with its creation story, abandoned fallen angels (they reminded me of the Ents) and the barbaric behaviour of men in a barren wasteland ‘other worldly’ landscape. I have to admit that I totally bought into Russell Crowe’s intense portrayal of the outsider Noah, a descendent of Seth and a man possessed who gradually descends into madness because of the enormity of the role the Creator has assigned him, full of certainty and then lost in doubt. However, as the film progressed and despite the impressive cinematography and CGI (in particular the onset of the flood) the screenplay appeared to become laboured and despite my initial goodwill I could not wait for the film to end.

Classic biblical tale meets Transformers meets East End gangster ... A fantastic opportunity to remake this classic story for a new generation which fails miserably. The essence of the story is still very good, and parts of the film reflect that, but it's way too long, and the Transformer style 'Watchers' send it way off course. Throw in Ray Winsome, who comes across as a East End gangster no matter what role he's in, and the film loses it way completely. A shame ...

A word of warning: this is very brutal and violent for a 12 rating, and this may be worth bearing in mind when considering it for younger viewers.

Forget what you think you know about Noah. In this Middle Earth saga the watchers are huge rock creatures that look like they belong in Star Wars. This is a rather bizarre interpretation of Genesis 6:1-5, and was my first WTF moment. The Watchers actually had relations with humans and created a race of giants who apparently ruled over man...not in this film.

Russell Crowe portrays Noah as a dark, bitter, dysfunctional, unlikeable person who obeys God through his dreams. (God doesn't even make a cameo.) The women, whose names aren't mentioned in the Bible are given expanded and important roles. All the time on the ark is spent on personal drama. No tending of the animals that are all living together in the hull of the ship.

Another problem is that Tubal-Cain kills Noah's father Lamech, not to be confused with Tubal-Cain's father Lamech while Noah was a child.The Bible claims Lamech was born in the 182nd year of Methuselah and lived 777 years. This means he died 10 years before the flood. Noah was over 600 years old at the time of the flood. Do the math.

There were a number of surprises, some I won't mention as I wouldn't want to "spoil" a millennia tale. That said, at the end, a son leaves the group before them all having children when clearly the families stayed together for a number of years and raised children until the Canaan/Noah incident which is not mentioned.

Poor Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly acted their hearts out, reminding me of Sean Astin who gave a wonderful performance in "Cabin Fever 3." Nothing like casting pearls before swine.

From a biblical prospective, the film was a disaster and not inspirational. As an action adventure story, the rock creatures made me feel like I was watching Indian Jones with aliens.
