Critic Reviews for Noah

All Critics (221) | Top Critics (47)

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

Top Critic

(Director) Aronofsky has crafted one firecracker of an adventure film with spectacular effects, vast warring armies and a disaster scenario for the ages. And at its center is a splendid performance by Crowe.

As misguided a film as you're likely to see from a genuinely great filmmaker.

Full Review… | April 15, 2016

It explores concepts like grace, justice, pride, guilt, and love. It respects its source material and respects the power of human imagination. It takes a sober look at the evil in the human heart. That is the sort of movie worth watching.

Infusing Noah's story, however fictional or true you believe it to be, with the kind of rock creatures we saw in GalaxyQuest is like trying to tell the story of Geronimo with an E.T.-like alien turning up in the Apache desert to offer his assistance.

Family Home Theater

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.

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.
