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.

I am a person of faith but I did not find this movie's altered story line completely out of whack. The movie actually becomes a combination of the stories of Noah and Abraham (and Isaac). Hopefully this will make people think more carefully about the sacrifice of a child for all.

The acting and effects were very good. Not a movie for young kids to see but worth a watch.

This is an excellent movie, consistent with other Aronofsky films. Aronofsky is an auteur who wants to entertain you but also make you feel uncomfortable, sick, unsettled. Think REQUIEM FOR A DREAM or BLACK SWAN.

What really stands out in NOAH is its provocative advocacy of vegetarianism. Aronofsky reinterprets the fall from grace and the story of the flood as arguments against eating meat.

Check this film out. It is a "treat."

it doesn't deserve to be rated. So zero stars, they didn't follow the scripture at all. don't know why bother doing it even!

A dismal pice of crap. If you have to watch it, try fast forward. Glad I did not pay to see this in a theater!

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."
