Excerpt: Yes it is ludicrous to think that a biblical passage/story can be made into a Hollywood flick. The picture consists of great casting, intelligent screenplay, cool pacing of the story and a provocative director. Russell Crowe as Noah seems precise since he can ply sympathetic and really vicious roles. Jennifer Connelly here was just extraordinary. Loads of quotable lines, elegant visual effects and cinematography. Aronofsky never seizes to make a point.
Excerpt: "I am a man created in your image. Why won't you converse with me?" That is a deeply and painfully humanizing quote of dialogue spoken by the often loathsome villain of this divisive biblical epic. it shows just how thoroughly the script for Noah (2014) tries to probe the premise of a divinely sanctioned deluge like the Great Flood from Genesis from a clearly human perspective and still pay respect to its Judeo-Christian background.
Summary: I saw this movie in the theaters when it first came out. I was so excited about it but so sadly disappointed. It was nothing like the Bible except the flood and the ark. There was no real story line. I almost got up and left several times but thought surely it would get better. I love Russell Crowe but this was so poor and ridiculously boring and non factual. I know the Bible doesn't have a great deal of details but the details weren't even there.
Excerpt: For starters, I am not a religious person. I was brought up Christian, and while I do believe in something more powerful than myself, I don't subscribe to any specific religion, science is clearly the logical choice. Religion is not fact or fiction, it simply is what you choose to believe in to guide you as needed through your life. Noah is an adventure movie with action and phenomenal acting. It is beautifully filmed, entertaining and highly enjoyable on all levels.
Excerpt: Setting aside belief in any religion and whether the movie's script had anything that adhered to those beleifs, I expected it "should" be epic. It clearly was not. So many distractions that take you out of the story, like out dated CGI, clothing and hair styles which seemed out of place, character reactions that occasionally seem to come from nowhere, and nearly an emotionless performance from Russell Crowe.
Excerpt: Well whether you believe in the story of noah or not it doesn't really matter as this movie was just silly. if your going to do a movie on noah it needs to be dark real and dirty looking you need to feel the power of what is to be and the fear and everything needs to powerful. this movie had none of those elements. instead it seemed low budget of just a family and a a load of extras later on. and some cheesy use of cgi. there was no realness to it at all.
Summary: When this movie was finish I sawed a guy on the street dragging a big cross down the street like Jesus. This movie has good visual effect's and Russell Crowe was good as Noah, but this movie was boring and way to long and by the way Noah kills babies in this movie.
Excerpt: 'Noah' is the latest film associated with Christianity to be released this year and it's the only one to cause controversy. I believe it is unwarranted. Some religious folk have cried fowl at the content. But they are forgetting the fact that this was never meant to be a literal interpretation. Their blind dislike has made them overlook the many areas where the film did succeed. This is a much more dramatically fleshed out story than the one it is based off.
