You couldn’t tell this was a fantasy flick by the trailers? There are rock monsters in the trailer.
It was an artistic representation. It’s meant to entertain. I though it was decent.
The Bible is a collection of stories. Written by man… They tried to cross your old fantasy novel with current beliefs.
They don’t reference the word “God” because not everyone believes in god. But all religions have a basic belief system and that is “Be a good person” N
oah is human, and is susceptible to making all the choices and mistakes all humans make.
How many of you have really never offended any of the 10 commandments? Never lied? .., You’re lying now, you hypocrites!

I’m sorry but the minute I see/hear the words, “Russell Crowe”, I switch off and stop paying attention. As an ego-maniacally bloated little vegemite in dire need of a memorable kick up the arse, he’s a total non-event.

We went to something not what we expected. We knew immediately it was written by a fan of satan because “In the beginning was nothing, the water had all kinds of life thriving in it,before it was created.” and the storyline went downhill from there. I wondered if this was a native aborigional, muslim viewpoint, Jehovah’s witness, or Mormon or scientology, there are a lot of scientologists in heathen Hollywood. From what I know of them, they would beat their daughter for having a baby with her husband. Maybe Jim Hensen has a contract for so many movies a year, so they had to put in the rock monsters. What was with the snake skin? When Satan changed from the most beautiful creature ever made to a serpent, did Eve collect the skin? Why did they name this Noah? I once read a crappy fictionalization of this approximate story which followed almost part of this storyline. It had Noah’s wife devirginizing the daughters in law she arranged for the boys with the a unicorn horn. Almost the same thing. I was the only one in the sparsely inhabited theatre to stay through to the credits, I wanted to find out if they gave any book a credit. NOT EVEN GENESIS, OR KJV! Out of 25-40 viewers, only 8 stayed to nearly the end.

You have some good points i guess but are a little misguided on some of your details and facts, Jim Henson (correct spelling) has been dead for about 20 years now, there are 11 other mistakes, maybe go back and review or atleast quote information of substance and established fact so as not to mislead or embellish and in result to unknowingly speak mistruthfully

I have to say that I don’t typically read up on movies like I should because I didn’t even know there was any dispute over this movie. I seriously thought that this movie would be based on biblical events. Given that we are nearing Easter, I decided to skip the typical burn, crash, shooting, killing, sex movie and instead watch a movie based on biblical events. When the transformer-rocks came about, I should have just walked out. Instead, like an idiot I decided to give the movie a chance. Between the transformer-rocks, pregnancy testing, magic tricks, MadMax-like warriors, welding masks and the angriest Noah you will ever see on film, I thought perhaps I was in a comedy movie. This movie is laughable and not in a funny way but in a “how stupid can you be” way. The “CREATOR” of this movie Darren Aronofsky should consider making cartoons. I can’t understand why “critics” like this movie. It’s horrible. Save your money or go see a cartoon, far more realistic than this clown of a movie.

Totally Agree, this movie is horrible for those looking for a scripture based flick. I as so many who believe in the authenticity of scripture, walked away greatly dissappointed. Desire to tell the story should be based or at the least in proximity near what the text entails. To move so blatantly far away from the scripture shows a lack of understanding and respect to which Biblical authors hold most dear (Truth). One should not add one jot or tittle! Especially since there is only one author (God Himself). The Great I AM, The God of Abraham, Isacc and Jacob, The Most High, The one and only true and living God.

Why should it be the same as the scripture when it’s all fantasy anyway?

Did you expect it to be another ‘Ten Commandments’ or Mel Gibson martyr type film. I avoid those at all cost because they’re so predictable and boring.

Wow Rick you have put into words what I was thinking while this movie was playing. First time in my life I wanted to find something on line to express my disgust in this movie. Why call this movie Noah. This was not Noah of the bible, by the end of the movie I was hoping his sons would kill him, why not they deviated so much from the truth it didn’t even matter any more. You know what I thought this would make me feel better BUT I am still angry.

AMEN. This movie was repulsive. It should never have been called Noah–I agree with Trish. Completely different from the Bible and meant to mislead people. The Bible doesn’t need artistic interpretation, and certainly nothing as gross, ridiculous, and horrific as this. The devil had his hand in this movie.
