Oh my word!!! Those die hard Christians are gonna have a field day with this movie, GIANT ROCK CREATURES, REALLY... REALLY?!?!?! I had to keep on reminding myself that this is a "Bible story" adaption, because it felt more like Transformers meets those TITANS from The Hobbit.
Plus why do movies like these always need to make God be seem so mystic, mysterious and neglective? Its lame and used too death!!!
Bringing me to my last nick picking observation; here are some GREAT casting choices. But, damn is this script lame. It's as bland as the paper it was written on making it seem like just another quick cash in simply because its a religious movie..
Shame on you HOLLYWOOD. SHAME ON YOU!
Slow and completely ridiculous. How did Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly & Emma Watson get themselves involved in the crap.
Darren Aronofsky's Noah was one of my most anticipated films for this year and what a better story to do than one that every single person in the world is aware of. The problem is that I think it didn't worked so well as I thought it would be and unfortunately this is my first big disappointment of the year.
Noah was chosen by God to save The Creation from a flood. He had to build an arc and put there two animals of each species. God wanted to punish the human kind and start all over again. This story is told to many of us around the age of 6 or 7 but some of the elements felt a little bit strange. Not about what I mentioned before but about the other stuff that was added to the story to turn it into something more dramatic.
I have no complaints about the performances. The two I would like to mention in particular are Russel Crowe's that did an amazing job portraying Noah and Emma Watson that was very surprising in her role, she was very emotional and really touching.
It has its ups and downs and the main reason why I think it not worked so well was because of the pace. At times too rushed, when there's reasons to be more detailed and deep. At times too slow, giving importance to things that were not that important. I understand all of the messages and Aronofsky's intention, what he is trying to pass to us but he kinda of ruined what could have been an absolutely amazing film.
Despite all of the flaws I have to say that this is definitely a film to see at a big screen. You will appreciate it more that way.
Overall, Noah had its glorious moments but those moments were not able to safe the whole film.
just blah....could of been shorter and just boring, just a lame movie
