Even if this movie was not the famous biblical saga it would have been a terrible movie. I understand there is not a lot of story with a family floating around in a boat.......so don't make the movie.

Despite some of the negative criticism, I enjoyed this film. I thought it was a sensational epic and once again Darren Aronofsky has delivered a cast led by Russell Crowe who gives a raw performance.

I wanted to see this before anyone reviewed and read their comments. One of the worst films I have ever seen.The story line rambles along. The rocks that turn into monsters are stupid. what a waste of acting talent on a dumb film. A 100 million down the crapper.

I must have seen a different Noah. I think it was the WORSE movie I have ever seen. It is obvious that the writer, director or anyone involved in making this movie has ever read the Bible. It was just plain STUPID. I would give it a "F" not only that but a double "FF".

Worst. Not "worse."

It would be sad, if this flick did poorly, because of the religious stigma.

Until reading Richard's review, I honestly was going to skip it. Even afterwards, it took some major coaxing & promises, to get my wife to see it with me.

It could just have easily been about a gene researcher, facing ethical obstacles, dealing with threats to her conscience.

This is about a man with a strong sense of right and wrong. He also has a strong conviction, that human beings are not worth saving; which I can't always argue with. But the difference between the Noah character, and our own self-righteous indignation, is that Noah includes himself among the unworthy.

The flip side, near the end, explores what can happen when one's moral convictions are off the mark, when one parks one's brains & heart at the door, and ignores something that rivals conscience - compassion.

The religious angle could be considered backdrop. The core of the story is about a human being wrestling with right & wrong, moral conviction & possible insanity, compassion and firmness.

It's about us, about any of us who sometimes doubt whether we're doing the right thing, and is worth checking out.

I just saw "Noah": Very good movie, and here is how I plan to explain it to my kingdom kids...Superman's dad is chose by God to make the ark, so he and his wife (Hulk's Girlfriend from "Hulk") along with his kids including the new "Romeo" and "Percy Jackson" cross the land, find Hermione Granger, who fancies Romeo, and after talking to Thor's Dad, they build the ark despite the growing threat of Ares from the first "Percy Jackson" movie (or, if you want, Beowulf)......understand?

This film is a great masterpiece of biblical scale. It's the best bible film since "Passion of the Christ." Even though it's an ancient story of mankind it also reflects our world today. It's ironic really, but then again it's human nature. The best movie I've seen so far this year. The story is definitely more than we imagined.

Just wanted to say thanks Richard for showing me which movies to go spend my hard earned money on over the years. You & I rarely disagree and I always look forward to hearing your input.

I just wish someone would bring the "Book of Enoch" into this. I am a Christian and I seeing the Bible making a comeback, I guess Hollywood has nothing more to write than stories about the Bible and Marvel Comic super heroes, unless it is a remake of another told story.
