This was ok. A lot darker than I was expecting. Also leaves a lot of unanswered questions (how are they supposed to repopulate the world without committing incest?). But good acting all around.

Russell Crow was amazing as always along with Anthony Hopkins who never fails to disappoint,
First 30 minutes is quite slow and boring but as the plot thickens and the story begins its great!

One of the commenters brought up an interesting point about the vegetarian viewpoint. This movie is a thinker and has some great messages about what being a human being is and the consequence of human aggression and misuse of our unique power (not only physical but emotional).

BUT -- unfortunately there was also a lot of distractive elements and parts of the film sickened me - like a bad horror movie but realer.

Russell Crowe is a treat to look at and to watch -- he is at home on film as a cat is to napping. I can see a lot of people HATE this movie but I can't hate a basically well-crafted film with good intentions.

It was interesting to see a modern director attempt to portray one of the oldest and most implausible tales of the Old Testament. Since I do not really know the details of the story, I do not understand the parts where Noah gets the help from the huge monsters and do not understand why he was supposed to kill the two newborn female babies, etc. , etc. I probably understand less about the story than when I read about this stuff as a child. The only thing I understand is that it was lucky that the dinosaurs were already extinct because if they were still around in Noah’s time, he would have had to get a bigger boat. A much, much bigger boat.

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!

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."
