Noah is a retelling of the biblical story of Noah and the Ark.
First thing to remember while watching this movie is that it is inspired by the story of Noah, and not the actual story. That will save you the anger that this movie may cause. Anyway, moving on, Russell Crowe keeps calm through most of the movie, while doing his token brooding quiet angry voice, which does fit in the movie. Jennifer Connelly did a successful job playing the concerned wife of Noah, since her husband is building an ark in the midst of a drought. The script did need some refining, but the actors made the script they were given better. Graphics in the movie were top of the line, be it water, animals, or even the prelude of what all had happened up to the point of Noah in a mosaic looking screen was quite interesting and well played.
The music throughout the movie added emotion, but wasn’t overpowering.
This movie is good for most ages, and while it deviates quite a bit from the Bible, it is a refresher to get you back into the Bible.
I give the movie 6/10 popcorns
Rated PG-13 for violence, disturbing images and brief suggestive content
