In a single sequence, Aronofsky combines creationism, Darwinian evolution, original sin, the end of days, and radical environmentalism.

For all the high-tech showmanship on display, this retelling of Noah and the Ark marks a serious effort to engage with the Old Testament as a literary text.

In some ways, Noah resembles one of those Kirk Cameron movies about the apocalypse, only with a better cast and more dazzling special effects.

It's overlong and a times sluggish. The fights and battles, designed to give an epic fantasy feel to the movie, are grave miscalculations. And the overabundance of CGI often makes Noah look like a video game.

Darren Aronofsky's film about the Old Testament shipbuilder has been sparking controversy - but there's no denying that the Great Flood, digitized, is a pretty great flood.

The film sometimes plays like a Bible story filtered through the lens of a Snow White and the Huntsman -type re-imagining.

Noah isn't exactly the epic that bible-thumpers wished for, but Aronofsky's vision is masterful enough to create truly mesmerizing moments without being swept away by the murky waters of blockbuster boredom.

This is an epic that could easily have gotten lost in spectacle, but Aronofsky has managed to balance things just right, making for a thrilling and touching cinematic experience.

Aronofsky manages to transform a story, hokey on paper and even on reflection, into a spiritual flood-saga that's pretty damned immersive and elemental in its power.

It isn't the changes to the base story that are bothersome. It's the bat-guano crazy embellishments that make little to no sense in the grand scheme of things that do.

Aronofsky's signature grandiosity is too often at odds with -- and diminished by -- the familial melodrama he has created aboard the vessel.

Noah manages to be both reverent and action-conscious, but not strongly either one.

It ranges far, wide and clumsily in expanding its slender source material, but Noah aches with aspiration, its sincerity and ambition virtually leaping off the screen.

It's certainly not the sometimes-whimsical Bible story that's told to so many children. Director Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' is a drama about a tormented man determined to do God's bidding and about people who are ravaging the earth.

Aronofsky makes an intermittently arresting Bible movie

April 18, 2014 Full Review Source: Movie Habit

Aronofsky's grand, crazy vision is filled with more awe and reverence than a traditional snoozefest like Son of God, and, in its fun, flawed and chaotic way, Noah is a popcorn flick about the endless wonders of the universe and of the human soul.

Darren Aronofsky upends convention-but stays true to the bible-with this controversial epic.

Pro-vegan and anti-industrial messages aside... as (a) non-Biblical, alternative history version of the Great Flood, there's some interesting stuff going on here.

A water-logged turkey...an epic disaster of truly biblical proportions...Bloated, gloomy, super self-serious and - worst of all - boring, the film is so dull and portentous it's likely to make atheists convert, just so they can pray to God to save them.

There is so much here that is wonderful and strange, my problems with the film are not much more than quibbles. ... I think Noah is Darren Aronofsky's Take Shelter.

Audience Reviews for Noah

Interesting take on what the world was like in darkness, when The Creator wouldn't answer man because man was corrupt. That The Creator wanted to end mankind--chilling but frankly not entirely unbelievable. I liked the Watchers--something, literally, out of the stone age. I thought Russell Crowe did a wonderful job as the man entrusted with the most horrible task imaginable--I've seen that kind of single-minded ruthlessness in the cause of supposed goodness: jeez, just look around the world today. I loved Ham and his conflict with his father. Highly highly recommend.

Truthfully i couldn't get into it. Like it is visually beautiful and the cast is brilliant and the direction is fantastic but I dont have any love for the film and felt no thrill for it

Loved it! Russell Crowe is always great in epic films like this and Aronofsky did a really good job putting his stamp on this story.

If you didn't know it was a Bible story, this would just be bizarre and hard to follow. If you know it's from a Bible story, it's still bizarre -- just in a different, more frustrating way. Acting is up to par and costumes are better than average, but the CGI and cinematography are a big, bland "m'eh". I was kinda praying that the Creator would have flooded the editing room and washed away this project before I could be duped into buying the ticket.
