Despite wild deviations in spiritual themes and execution, nothing in Noah approaches sacrilege or surrender, making this an acutely sensible biblical epic. It may simply be too strange for the masses to notice.
"Noah" brings together a stellar ensemble cast, with Russell Crowe delivering a commanding performance in the titular role. Jennifer Connelly's emotive depth adds layers of complexity to her character, while Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, and Emma Watson shine brightly, each contributing their unique essence to the narrative. The film's grandeur is matched by the cast's talent, creating a captivating cinematic experience that's both powerful and moving.
My god this user rating is low for now reason at all this is a good movie at worst and when looked at by fans of cinema and an open mind it was one of the best films of 2014. Very captivating and great performances with Aronofsky's skillful touch to it.
It isn’t “The Ten Commandments” and Crowe is no Charlton Heston. But Noah makes Biblical myth grand in scope and intimate in appeal. The purists can always go argue over “God Isn’t Dead.” The rest of creation can appreciate this rousing good yarn, told with blood and guts and brawn and beauty, with just a hint of madness to the whole enterprise.
The director’s vision is so dark — and Mr. Crowe’s grumbling, sour-stomach persona so much like a Tums commercial — that you don’t care much what happens to him or his ark, which looks like a big barge with a stove pipe in the middle.
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).
This movie wasn't what I was expecting. The book of genesis is exciting enough without adding stone giants, a lord of the rings-style mass battle, and a mad-max dystopian world. There are a few good scenes (mainly when the CGI animals are all arriving at the ark) but I mainly found this movie to be a grim, confusing mess. Some kudos to the director for not playing things safe, though in this case I don't think it worked out particularly well.
Trying to hide truth or spinning the fact? Or probably both? Typical holywood movies, deception everywhere. God never forgave those fallen angels, they are bound to be punished until now. They didnt even help Noah build the ark.
