Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.

The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide. The biblical story of Noah can be found in the book of Genesis.

3.0 out of 5 stars Legends March 30, 2014
Format:DVD
The Biblical tale of Noah is only a short story in Genesis. Any movie adaptation was going to have to find a way to fill out a two hour movie. In some respects, Director Darren Aronofsky did fine. The movie is well cast, with Russell Crowe as a determined and devout Noah, Jennifer Connelly as his dutiful wife, Emma Watson as an adopted daughter, Anthony Hopkins as Noah's grandfather Methuselah, and Ray Winstone as the leader of a band of roving scavengers. If you've seen the trailer, you know the cinematography is quite good. The Icelandic location shooting is dramatic, and those portions of the movie which stick to the original storyline work fairly well.

In some other respects, the movie does less well. The Biblical story of Noah is a straightforward morality tale about mankind. Aronofsky insisted on respinning it as a not very convincing environmental cautionary tale about a pre-industrial age. He also chose to rewrite the story of Noah and his sons and their respective wives in order to invent a disturbing and almost lethal family drama inside the Ark. At the end, the message of the movie is quite confusing.

Judging from other reviews, viewers with no particular commitment to the original story of Noah like the movie. Those viewers with expectations of a faithful adaptation of the original story are likely to be disappointed. Judge accordingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christians may hate it, but as a Jew, I loved it! August 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS. On the other hand, reading this before viewing the film just might open your eyes to some of the lesser-known Jewish themes it contains. Never has a movie so clearly illustrated the vast difference between how Christians and Jews read the Bible.

Yes, this is basically a Jewish movie, directed by a Jew (Darren Aronofsky) and written by him and his Jewish co-writer, Ari Handel. One of the early screenings was to a group of rabbis from various Jewish denominations, who gave it a thumbs up. In fact, I believe this is the first-ever major movie with a biblical theme that presents a Jewish POV on the story. That alone deserves a lot of kudos to a director who did NOT pander to the dominant culture in America.

So no, it does not stick to the common Christian understanding of the biblical text -- which is rather short and sketchy anyway, with no real character development. However, the Bible is only a small percentage of the sacred writings that Jews have. Aronofsky also consulted the Talmud, Midrash, Zohar, Book of Enoch, and other extra-biblical sources. Then you have the flood traditions in the Gilgamesh Epic, the story of Atlantis, the Hopi Indians, etc., plus archaological and historical data on what such an early culture might look like. Remember your Bible: "Tubal-Cain, who forged all instruments of copper and iron" (Genesis 4:22) which would place this story in the late Bronze or early Iron Age. People back then did not dress in biblical robes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Type of Movie March 31, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I saw Noah a week ago at my local theater, and am just now able to write a level headed review about it. See, Noah is that type of movie that you either absolutely love, or downright hate. Its the kind of movie that makes people fiercely defensive of their opinions, that sparks widespread controversy. This is rare, as movies nowadays seem to be pretty tailored to their target audience. Most of the controversy is centered around whether or not the film is biblical. As a Christian who has read the bible, I feel the need to point out that the bible is very vague concerning the story of Noah. God has the only speaking part, and the feelings and experiences of Noah and his family are not shared with us. If the film ONLY included the text as it was written, it would be about half an hour, and very impersonal. Darren Aronofsky adds additional material because if he didn't, there wouldn't be a film. There wouldn't even be any characters, other then names. Now, a lot of the controversy concerns what he added, mainly the bit about the fallen angels. People seem very confused about this, shortsightedly likening them to "Rock Transformers". The Nephilim, as they are called, are mentioned in the Bible, as well as in the Book of Enoch (Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah), which is a Jewish telling of the flood that is separate from the one in the Bible. They are also referred to in the Epic of Gilgamesh, which is an ancient historical and mythological text containing the story of the flood, also separate from the bible. If one considers for a moment that Darren Aronofksy came from a Jewish background, its easy to see where he would have gotten some of his content. Read more ›

I read all the negative reviews about this movie, and as a religious person myself, chose not to view it in theaters since I don't like people pandering the bible simply because they don't have faith. It was not until a friend rented it and encouraged me to watch it did I relent, and I figured only because it was free as I didn't want to contribute to artistic nonsense.

I knew in advance this was not going to follow the bible to the letter and that was never the issue I thought I was going to have. The issue was I felt it was going to defame and belittle the story. What surprised me was the artistic license was not tasteless or atheistic at all. There are a few scenes that may push your moral outrage to the extreme but in retrospect I believe these scenes were meant to illustrate the moral dilemma, not for spectacle.

I felt that this was a fair and creative way to express the story and true meaning of Noah. I thought the acting was controlled and well done, not goofy melodrama like so many movies. The direction and cinematography really shined. Take away the religion and cast, and story and you must acknowledge it is a beautiful film to watch. However the story ultimately is in line with the original and is not a rewrite or detour, but a modern interpretation. I have come to realize through this film that people who believe their interpretation and historic portrayals of the bible are the only possible interpretation do their religion a disservice and don't trust in it's ability to illuminate in unique ways.

I didn't think Noah was simply an enraged misanthrope as has been accused in this film, but genuinely was vexed about how and why he should carry out Gods will. After all why would God destroy almost ALL of mankind, you don't think even a messiah would question that? The moral dilemmas are realistic and compelling. I felt a greater appreciation both for my own free will and the ultimate power of God after this movie.
