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.

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.

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.

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.

December 31, 2015
The film oscillates between glitzy existential horror and somber showbiz spectacle.
July 14, 2015
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.

December 15, 2014
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.

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.

July 28, 2014
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 2, 2014
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.
June 15, 2014
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.

May 21, 2014
Aronofsky's signature grandiosity is too often at odds with -- and diminished by -- the familial melodrama he has created aboard the vessel.
