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.

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.

July 28, 2014 Full Review Source:

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.

April 16, 2014 Full Review Source:

A water-logged 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.

What's finally impressive about Noah, even to those of us who are hardly unconditional Aronofskians, is the degree of unbending faith on which this massively ambitious venture is built.

Audience Reviews for Noah

An intense, multi-layered parable that defies us to consider all the complex implications of serving the demands of a manipulative, petty and sadistic Creator (both entity and faith) instead of facing Him to follow our hearts - which is something that unfortunately still happens today with many religious people.
July 30, 2014

Super Reviewer

Although occasionally descending into typical blockbuster territory with its gigantic special effects, Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' is a thought-provoking and at times intense depiction of the Biblical story with an intriguing examination of the titular character.

Super Reviewer

Equal parts strange and stunning, Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic is a brooding revisionist work that's a singular artistic achievement of both honest power and otherworldly gravitas.

Though some of the CGI feels a little clunky, Aronofsky places his indelible touch on this bible epic with breathtaking visuals, an engaging story, and great performances from the entire cast, especially Crowe.
