If You Want to Watch Fantasy, Stick with Lord of the Rings,
This review is from: Noah (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) (Blu-ray)
I prefer writers and directors who stay faithful to the real story. After all, if you are going to tell a story, might as well be accurate about it regardless of it being biblical or not. I understand artistic license. However, it should not overshadow accurate storytelling. That is the reason why good filmmakers strive for authenticity and historical accuracy. I wanted to like "Noah." But the walking Rock Angels appeared like a bad ent (talking/walking tree) of Lord of the Rings. Not even Russell Crowe's acting could save this film. Then I realized that this is a fantasy film with an agenda in mind, e.g. God used the big bang and evolution vs. God created everything in six days (Gen. 1). Whether intentional or not, the film missed the real message of Noah: that man was destroyed for his sins against God, not for what he did to nature.

It seems that God and nature are one and cannot be divided if one is truly intimate with god and not just intellectual... I have not yet seen the film but if the message is that man destroys nature then it should make sense that god in the form of nature retaliates. Thanks.
