The story of the global flood that wiped out almost all life on earth is the original disaster story. Already banned in some Middle Eastern countries, Noah will rile some for the complete omission of the name “God” from the dialogue, others for its numerous dramatic fabrications and still more for its heavy-handed ecological doomsday messages, which unmistakably mark it as a product of its time. The movie is a fantasy-style epic complete with villain and a love story. The animals gather themselves and sleep.
“Noah is no by-the-book Bible story. Think of it as a visually mesmerizing sci-fi adventure saga loosely based on the book of Genesis.” — USA TODAY, Claudia Puig
“Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture’s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah. “— The Hollywood Reporter
