Customer Review

on 4 April 2014
Cinematic experience is about thrilling and exciting viewers, but not over focusing on that angle. At the same time, there has to be depth in storyline and characters. The balance has to be right. Noah fails to achieve the right balance. Noah failed to keep me enthralled for long periods. I was literally about 2 and half hours in a cinema hall watching a bland and confused piece of film making. It is meant to be a bibloical interpretation of a story losely based on Noah's arc. It starts with talking rocks and loses the plot completely. There are plenty of bland moments throughout the film. Hardly any action and excitement at all. I do not mean glory violence scenes and scary creatures for the sake of it. It needed to be surreal and be creative in its story-telling. There are no special effects, apart from the talking rocks and high seas. I appreciate with a biblical piece of making film there is a distinctive style of storytelling, but how it is delivered needs to be more interesting and appealing to viewers. The attention span presents a major issue in the film. I struggled to connect with the story and characters. I found the characters very bitter, particularly Noah who came across as moody and unlikeable. I am not sure how accurate the film reflects the main character, as unfolded in the original story. My knowledge of the subject area is very limited. I am assuming the character is a hero and should have been portrayed in a better light. The film lacks clarity and direction. It needed to be more coherent. I agree with the negative reviews on this ocasion. It needed the oomph factor. I would not even consider purchasing it on blue ray. 2 stars is a fair reflection.
