Parts of this movie were interesting and well-written, but others were not.

On the positive side: 1) I liked the subtle environmental theme 2) some of the cinematography and special effects were brilliant 3) the locations in Iceland were wisely chosen 4) everybody in the cast was ideal for his/her role.

On the negative side: 1) the watchers should have been made out of better-organized stone, they were cartoonish and unrealistic 2) having Tubal-Cain break into the ark and hide inside for months was unnecessary and weakened the story 3) the significance of the serpent's skin was poorly explained and didn't fit well with the rest of the story, so it probably should have been left out.

It would have been more interesting if we had another ten minutes or so of scenes portraying the background of what was going on in the world before Noah built the ark.

Expected eye candy, so I wasn't sure why I watched it, but was pleasantly surprised by the thought provoking element of trying to understand/be obedient to God...

Since almost every culture has a great flood story it is hard to know why this had to be called Noah. This movie is offensive to Jews, Christians, and Chinese. It would make the following people pull their hair and gnash their teeth: historians, cultural anthropologists, physical anthropologists, archeologists, biblical scholars, anyone who cares about accuracy, and architects.
There was some moderately good acting, but nothing great.

Visually stunning, this adaptation of the story of Noah and the Ark will no doubt leave many viewers baffled with it's general presentation. Costuming looked right out of the Hercules/Xena TV shows, and some of the CG just doesn't stand up to High Definition standards. There are some decent performances turned in by Jennifer Connely, Emma Watson and Russell Crowe, but don't count on this film being memorable regarding their respective careers. Best to watch this on DVD (Standard Definition).

This movie is the worst I have ever seen. I would not even give it a half star rating. The story was stupid and boring and the special effects was like watching a cartoon from1960's. The story is nothing like the story from the Holy Bible.

Not based on the biblical story, but interesting fantasy which explores family relationships and struggle between good and evil. Interesting CG, but hoped there would be more interactions between animals and humans. I'm not sure why, since this is certainly not the story I learned about in Hebrew School!

Unbelievable! This is more like a cross between a science fiction and a fantasy film. It bears only a small resemblance to the Bible story of Noah and the Ark. It's really difficult to understand why the story in the Bible would be so terribly perverted in such a manner. I can't say with any certainty that the Bible is factual, but I can say for sure that this movie is ridiculous.

"The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky."-Sunday school song
I don't know if you can win with a Bible film, even though we've seen two epics this year ("Exodus: Gods and Kings," now in theaters and 75% whiter!). One of the most humorless directors on the planet, Darren Aronofsky, followed his sadistic "Black Swan," with one of the most disturbing stories in the Bible (Seriously, the Bible does not promote family values.), wherein God decides he's done with the human race and wipes all but a handful (And some lucky animals. Poor unicorns.) out with a massive flood. As someone who grew up Christian, I was interested to see what an agnostic, sort of arthouse director would do with the story. It turns out he made it look like Middle Earth and feel like "Gladiator." Conservative Christians who were offended (and aren't they always) by his liberties must realize that the screenwriters had to beef up the story, which only takes up a few pages in Genesis. Some detected an environmental theme, while others just seemed pissed off that a non-Christian made a movie from a book that is an important source of myth, regardless of your beliefs. Russell Crowe is in full glowering mode as Noah and I think it works to show him as a driven man who was a bit of a jerk, but we've also seen Crowe play this role many times. The supporting cast is erratic: Jennifer Connelly (laboring under a bad accent), Hermione, Ray Winstone as the bad guy, the voice of Nick Nolte. The rebel angels look like a mix between Transformers and Ents, but they're still kinda cool. It's worth it for the impressive effects, but the tone and story never really come together. It is not, per other reviews, one of the worst movies ever.

Bad movie, not based on facts, bunch of lies made to entertain. Noah was a good man, that's why God saved him & family.

Looks like hollywood did it again...they took a popular name and used it to make a piece of junk to sell to the public. It was like watching some midevil movie with an ark in the middle of the country and a few alien rock forms thrown in to add to the stupidity we were watching. This movie was totally in poor taste.

Noah: The time for mercy has passed. Now our punishment begins.

Noah: A great flood is coming. The waters of the heavens will meet the waters of earth. We build a vessel to survive the storm. We build an ark.

Noah: Fire consumes all. Water cleanses. It separates the foul from the pure. The wicked from the innocent. And that which sinks from that which rises. He destroys all, but only to start again.

He chose you for a reason, Noah. He showed you the wickedness of man and knew you would not look away. But then you saw goodness, too. The choice was put in your hands because He put it there. He asked you to decide if we were worth saving. And you chose mercy. You chose love.

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."
