This was a decidedly unexpected and unusual film. It takes the biblical story of Noah and then develops it in ways that you don't really expect to create something utterly alien yet strangely relevant. What I really appreciate about this film is how unclear and allegorical it is. Biblical films filled with the self-certainty and unquestioning authority of the '50s tend to be pretty dull. There is never any question of what is right (whatever God says basically) and never any possibility that God will allow the heroes to suffer for his commands. Modern day viewers will likely be put off by such fanatic certainty and unquestioned self-righteousness so it's nice to see a film that still keeps the point intact but brings the issues more in line with real emotions.

The story is the traditional one taught in Bible school but it follows unusual interpretations. For a start the word God is never once uttered. Instead he is referred to as The Creator. Also present are fallen angels known as The Watchers, giant hunks of beings trapped inside moving rock. The first segment follows Noah's attempt to decipher his visions, and the intense emotional scenes are well designed to be difficult to understand precisely without guidance. The next section follows Noah as he builds the Ark. This section has the interesting addition of an army led by Tubal-Cain, the self-proclaimed king of the world. Not surprisingly he wants on the Ark. This bit is a major addition but I think the story needs him if it's going to work. If you're going to have an apocalypse movie you need to see the people who are going to be dying, and if you're going to be following the 'it was God's will' angle then you need to show how utterly depraved the people about to be smited are.

Noah was a very intriguing film to watch. Cinematically there is a lot of originality about the film and it does it's best to remain theologically neutral. I was surprised at the high level of subtle violence in the film. Russell Crowe is always watchable and the comparisons between Noah and Maximus are undeniable. There were also good supporting acting from Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone. I'm still coming to terms with a post Harry Potter Emma Watson. The film trailers chose to avoid depicting the Watchers, perhaps wisely. While slow to get going, the film comes into its own with the introduction of the ark and the visual delights that accompany the unsympathetic destruction of the world. Overall, a worthwhile watch and while it will likely leave audiences, of all beliefs, with questions; there is no denying that Darron Aronofsky is a visionary.

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 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.

The strange thing with Noah is that, though a biblical story, almost one of the best known in fact, the film itself isn't preachy, it is simply telling a story, a story that could happily sit alongside a fantasy or historical piece. Visually stunning, and captivating, the only negative, and the reason it's not a higher score, is some of the acting and rather clunky scene progression in parts. Crowe is amazing, as always, so is Winston, gurning to his heart's delight and spitting out almost clichéd 'bad guy' spiel. But at times some of the supporting cast just feel a little two dimensional, a little rushed, un-fleshed and paper-thin. This could be because the focus is Noah, but I feel the film would have benefitted from a more rounded layer of secondary characters. This is also reflected in the ‘clunky’ scene progression, possibly from a time duration issue, but the odd extra minute here or there, on an already long film, I don’t feel would have been a bad thing, it would have allowed a smoother and less stereotypical smattering of dialogue to move the story on.
All in all, a good film, well worth a watch, and another good film to a great director’s back catalogue, watch it, what’s the worst that could happen?
