The film oscillates between glitzy existential horror and somber showbiz spectacle.

The kind of stubborn art-epic we get once in a blue moon, the sort that makes me feel protective of it, grateful for it.

Just as the Bible speaks in many ways to many people, so does Darren Aronofsky's epic Noah.

Full Review… | March 4, 2015

Darren Aronofsky's Noah was the most exciting big-budget studio film of 2014. While comic book movies are all the rage, Aronofsky's Noah treats the great flood as the ultimate origin story: the origin of life as we know it.

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

Full Review… | August 1, 2014

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.

Audience Reviews for Noah


A multilayered parable that defies us to consider the implications of serving the demands of a cruel, manipulative, petty and sadistic Creator (entity and faith) instead of facing Him to follow our hearts - which is something that unfortunately happens even today with many religious people.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

Overblown epic; grandiose filmmaking watered down by self-seriousness.

Game performances, amazing special effects but too cumbersome to get through.

The Gandiman
Tony Gandía

Super Reviewer

It has some glaring flaws, but overall, Noah is an enjoyable movie that is entertaining and thought-provoking. Aronofsky deftly blends his own unique interpretation of the story with the Biblical power and mysticism of the original. The film is a visual treat and features fantastic, powerful performances from Crowe and Watson.
