If you're OK with a very liberal interpretation of the source material, "Noah" should entertain.
November 14, 2017
Although Aronofsky has dipped liberally into the well of fantasy in his recreation of Noah's tale, he does it in a manner that serves up a quasi-modern story laced generously with allegory and backed by some solid, no-nonsense performances.

This Noah, embodied by [Russel] Crowe, is a pure Aronofsky monster.

I can't say it's a bad movie, just that it's not a movie for everyone.
September 12, 2017
Why craft a subtle emotional cue when, with overpowering string instruments and the ubiquitous sonic boom, you can prevent an audience from thinking at all?
September 6, 2017
The CGI animals are spectacular, the battles less so and, though none of it really makes sense, neither, some might argue, does the Bible.

This is the biblical story of Noah as retold through the eyes of Aronofsky after a three-day Tolkien bender capped off with multiple viewings of The Neverending Story.

The decision to make a movie about Noah and his big boat might seem a highly questionable enterprise, but bad ideas never seem to stop anyone lately.
August 9, 2017
Aronofsky has done his Bible-storytelling homework. The entire narrative has the feel of an oral storytelling culture, with the use of repetitive "chiastic" or "ring" structure so hearers will remember.
August 4, 2017
Really, Noah works so well because it is such a personal take on this biblical story.
July 7, 2017
In a sense, Noah is almost Talmudic in its obsessive pouring over and questioning of Biblical text. Yet, at the same time the movie is daringly 21st Century.
March 10, 2017
Noah is incredibly compelling visually, as Aronofosky manages to bend the source text into an environmental allegory about how Man is the worst.
February 28, 2017
On the whole, Noah is a mad captivating trip. And yes, it's the best movie about boatbuilding and livestock export you are likely to see for a very long time.

July 14, 2016
Gruff and gentle, skilled with a blade and tormented by his visions, Russell Crowe proves yet again that no one anchors an epic as well as he.

June 18, 2016
It's as odd and schizophrenic a picture as you're likely to see in the focus-grouped, play-it-safe moviemaking climate of the moment, and the fact that it exists at all is sort of a (ha ha) miracle.
June 7, 2016
Noah isn't perfect, but in its flawed, trembling beauty it's more interesting than much of Hollywood's recent tentpole output.

(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 | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 13, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.
