(Note: Some spoilers)

Ok. I only ever write these reviews in the hope that i can possibly save someone else from wasting two hours of their life. This film was absolutely terrible. I have to agree with the opinions of another reviewer when they said they felt at one point they were watching "Transformers". I felt that throughout the whole film , they were trying to mimic the Transformers Hollywood "formula" and create a Michael Bay film set in ancient times, it felt wrong and forced. Ok, so where do we start?

In the beginning .... (sorry , had to) .. i dont know how, but i knew from the first 2 minutes of the opening titles that this film was going to be awful. The introductory opening focused more on creating an arty, pretentious tone with what seemed like childlike graphics and title fonts. This initial artistic cinematography made me feel like the whole film was going to be a journey into the life of Noah , seen from the perspective of Andy Warhol. (slightly exaggerated, but you will get my point).

The back story heavily copied films such as Lord of The Rings and Thor in its presentation, which would be fine if it were not blatantly obvious and poorly executed. As this story is so well known maybe i expected a simple,natural plot introduction to convey the time period in which it was set. Instead we get an epic introduction which elevates biblical characters/gods into what felt like comic book super heroes.

Anyway, after the disappointing opening, everything calms down and a story begins to emerge.

More science fiction than bible story.. yes I know it has been influenced by a graphic novel, but I honestly don't think a majority will be expecting 'that' version.
Featuring giant rock monsters (yes really!!!), almost expected hobbits to appear at one point *sigh
I doubt most people would enjoy watching Russell Crowe lurking around the ark contemplating murdering his grandchildren either?!!!
Awful, frankly the worst film this year and by some margin too.

Apart from the obvious strangeness of the interpretation - rock Transformers, Cockernee Cain-lite, designer primordial attire and all, the premise of the ending had a crucial drawback. If Noah's descendents were destined to be the continuing progenitors of mankind, how was it going to work when the grandchildren were twin girls? Even if Shem and Hermione were planning to have more children, this would only extend the possibility of incestuous sexual relationships to continue the line...ewww!

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.

So so disappointing. There was very little in relation to the story of Noah and the flood and I am afraid for me when "fallen angels" appeared as rock people I completely lost any faith in this being a good watch.

Not my cup of tea at all.

Think this filmmaker was thinking about lord of the rings biblically .. As this version has very little to do with biblical times and more about fantasy land .. I didn't think
They invented denim jeans in that era ....
I was disappointed as it has an amazing cast .. But the story line was a bit too fantasy for me !!!! More futuristic after a holocaust and having rock creatures in it ????????? Very odd ..
