Perhaps one of the Ten Commandments should be "Thou shalt not make an Old Testament epic".

Top Critic

In a single sequence, Aronofsky combines creationism, Darwinian evolution, original sin, the end of days, and radical environmentalism.

The domestic melodrama and psychological realism which Aronofsky gives Noah to wrestle with are interesting enough, and Russell Crowe is the ideal actor to show Noah brooding upon his lot.

Biblical epics don't come any more soggy or bombastic than Darren Aronofsky's Noah.

April 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If, quite understandably, you enjoy seeing Russell Crowe being manly and bashing baddies, you won't be disappointed, especially if you're not too old. But really...

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.

Audience Reviews for Noah

½

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.

Overblown epic; grandiose filmmaking watered down by self-seriousness. Game performances, amazing special effects but too cumbersome to get through.

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.
