    What could have made Noah work is the same sense of urgency – of fateful craziness – that made "Pi" so memorable, and which also factored into the fatal obsessions of "The Wrestler" and "Black Swan" (two very flawed movies that admittedly benefited from stronger lead performances than the one here).

    An incredible movie with great graphics, story and characters. As a christian I do not find a unique interpretation of the Noah story a bad thing. No, on the contrary I think it is a really good thing - if I want to read the actual story, I'll read the Bible. The Noah is not a retelling, but rather an attempt to understand the values and to make the short tale something bigger and more complex. And they did it right - drama made me weep, action made me thrilled, conclusion gave me feeling of hope and happiness Full Review »

    While not the worst film I've ever seen, Noah has to be one of, if not the most disappointing.

    I was under no illusion that this would be
    100% faithful to the source material, and some embellishment was to be expected, but what Aronofsky has done is inexcusable and absurd.

    What a wasted opportunity.

    What do you get if you mix 130 million dollars, a talented but clearly misguided director and a story believed and respected by hundreds of millions of people around the world.

    In this instance, a nonsensical mess thats what.

    The 2 points are for a few striking scenes in an otherwise dreadful movie.
