I was told by the librarian that loaned me the DVD that she'd heard this "wasn't supposed to be that good". IMDb gives it an underwhelming 6/10 as of this review. Most of the reviews here are on board with that lackluster rating. It was apparently banned in several Middle Eastern countries (lol). I watched it with an open mind, regardless, and with no expectation of any divine intervention. I don't know what Aronofsky was smoking when he dreamed this up, but I found it held my attention. Entertaining. I enjoyed the cast (Crowe, Winstone, Connelly, Hopkins) save whiny 'Hermione'...

Very disappointing on every level...acting (even with this great cast), story line, animated animal shots...etc. We did, I must admit, only watch about ⅓ because it was so much less than we'd expected so maybe it improved. But, overall...I wouldn't recommend it.

this movie was not a literal dramatization of the biblical story. the rock creatures who helped Noah build the ark were not mentioned in any bible story I ever read or heard. the rock creatures were more like Transformers put in to allure younger audiences who need a larger than life fight scene to attract them to the movies. there were other plot twists that were not part of the biblical story but added to make the story more accessible to a modern audience.

I don't mind an update of a biblical story, a big budget and special effects do make a difference. However, Aronofsky doesn't seem to realize when enough is enough. Big boat? Good. Talking rocks? Bad.
I felt more like I was watching a Michael Bay production than the mastermind behind Requiem for A Dream or The Wrestler.

Disappointing. The movie is not Biblical at all. There is a main character named Noah. He does have three sons with biblically accurate names. There is an arc, and an animals two-by-two, aside from that it a complete work of somewhat boring, dark and unrealistic fiction. Watched about 2/3 before turning it off. Anyone who thinks this is a biblically sound and representative movie needs to re-read their Bible. As a whole it's not worth seeing and a waste of time.

90% of the negative reviews are complaints that it wasn't the movie they wanted. Complaints to the contrary, it follows the Biblical story pretty well (for any really familiar with it), but in Aranofsky's own words that's not his intention ("it's the most unbiblical biblical movie ever"). And good for that! Put away the reactions and it's a pretty okay film, though disappointing compared to his others, particularly The Fountain which is his triumph. Worth seeing but nothing to write home about. Only wrote this review because something more level headed was necessary.

Not Biblical at all. 2 hours and 17 minutes of my life I'll never get back. Don't waste your time.

Not quite as dumb as some movies I've seen, but still, pretty stupid. I would have to cast the blame on the director and the writer for this particular travesty, as good actors are completely wasted. Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and Ray Winstone are capable of so much better, and this does not serve any of them well. The Biblical fable of the Great Flood gets thrown in with lots of other nonsense, including rock skinned fallen angels, a Noah who goes slightly bonkers, and a scenery chewing stowaway villain. Reprehensibly dumb, overwhelmingly bleak, filled with terrible dialogue, and pointlessly surreal. It could be worse though... at least it wasn't Battleship.

Noah: "We broke the world -- we did this. Man did this. Everything that was beautiful, everything that was good, we shattered. Now, it begins again."
