[5.75/10] Noah [3D] (2014)

Noah [3D] (2014)

Quick Review: With its moments of sheer epicness, and others of pure dullness, Aronofsky's anti-religious CGI-laden biblical fantasy fable is a disappointing mixed-bag. The most surprising fact about "Noah" is that the fantasy parts in it are the best ones, with the ark assault being the only highlight, while everything else is an over-dramatic nonsense, that's emotionally contrived. Moreover, it's apparent that the otherwise capable cast struggle a bit with the mediocre script, that ruins the film.

I was interested in it until I heard they completely took God out of the story. Sorry, you can't do a Bible story without God. And not getting my dollars if you do.

Alex, I see your point.
It's not biblically-accurate for sure, but I, personally, had no problem with that. My issues were the pacing and the script. It just wasn't as spectacular as I expected it to be.

I read from other reviewers that it is a good movie, but you are right that it is anti-religious. When I heard that there were rock monsters, I was like, "Are you serious?" I like fantasy, but mixing it with religious stories turns off a lot of people.

Reid, I wouldn't say it's a good movie. I'd rather call it a passable one.
It should have been either all fantasy, or all by-the-numbers biblical. It's a mix of both, and that's it biggest problem.
