Movie Info

The biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood gets a decidedly unusual retelling in this film, produced as a two-part TV movie and first aired on NBC in May 1999. Noah Jon Voight is an ordinary laborer who one day begins receiving messages from God. It seems the Lord has a special assignment for him: since God is planning on destroying the world with a massive flood, he wants Noah to build a giant ark and fill it with one male and one female of each animal on earth.

Audience Reviews for Noah's Ark

One of the worst movies I've seen, even for Christian like me. Everything in the movie is a huge mixed up of serveral Bible stories combined. I give extra 1/2 star for having some guts to show this on TV. The way this movie is going, it is going straight to hell.

(1999 Director: John Irvin) Is it really possible tha Noah in this movie was portrayed by Jon Voight?? Adored James Coburn's performance and the surprising performance by Carol Kane.

Super Reviewer

A completely inaccurate retelling of the story of Noah and the flood. Apparently, the filmmakers thought that they needed to flesh out the story with out-of-context events from other places in the Old Testament (I'm rather surprised Goliath didn't show up somewhere, actually). The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is here, along with Abraham's nephew Lot, who, in perhaps the most unforgivable bastardization of all, is portrayed as a ruthless, amoral cutthroat. (In the Bible, Lot was the one good inhabitant of Sodom, and God spared him from the destruction of that city.)

There are a lot of good Biblical epics out there. Don't bother with this misbegotten tripe.
