This the director's version of the Genesis mythology; considering how little details there are of Noah's family, the people of that time period in the Bible itself, the director took dramatic license & creatively fleshed out a largely unknown world/time to us. Lots of sci/fi & fantasy elements to it; if you read the bible objectively, it's full of fantastical & hard-to-believe events. I really liked the background story of the fallen angel's sacrifice to help Adam & Noah's visions of the coming flood were thrilling! Beautiful & dark storytelling!

NOT THE TRUTH!!! The Title is a lie and deceitful. If you want the truth, read the Bible.

Consider my motives here - God and myself love you and don't want you to go to hell. Please read below to know how to go to heaven.

Having a relationship with God by repenting of your sins, believing that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and believing He rose from the dead and is the Son of God. (Remember, there can only be ONE truth - Jesus proved it by his miracles - He is the ONLY way to heaven (even atheism is a belief in itself)) Check out: John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10 God bless

If this movie is anything to go by, it shows that biblical stories were written by people with a penchant for fantasy, and bad ones at that.
A ridiculous screenplay sinks this movie into deep waters!

Russell Crowe is an amazingly talented and versatile actor who gets a bad rap. He is even good in a bad film, which this is. An amateurish production, the story is overwhelmed by too many superfluous and gimmicky special effects (and yes, they look ripped off from Peter Jackson).

The scenery, however, is spectacular and the score is stirring, though nothing special. Besides Crowe, Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah is terrific. The other acing is pathetic.

Those looking for story authenticity will likely be disappointed: the director has his own interpretation of the story.

P.S. If you haven't seen Crowe in A Beautiful Mind, Master and Commander, State of Play, or Body of Lies you are really missing out.

Forget anything to do with religion or any sort of religious argument. This movie was just plain AWFUL. Russell Crowe mumbles, the special effects are hilarious (but not suppose to be), some guys from "Avatar" show up, and the script is so pathetic that I wonder how the producers raised the financing for the film, including an A-list cast. And why would Crowe and Jennifer Garner, etc sign up for such a film? Maybe needed tuition money for their kids? Watch it to mock and even then have the fast-forward ready.

Ah No!

A bizarre mix of Christian Mythology, Sci-fi and inane, schmaltzy dialogue. Noteworthy for it's special effects. Geared for a young audience

Big disappointment in all aspects. Hoping at the very least for a decent special effect for the big flood but instead got a cargo containing like box blobbing in a whirlpool with bottom jets blasting for a few minutes. The bible story, attempt to rationalize God's will on mankind, was likely unsatisfying for Christians and atheists alike. Even the location scenic shots were far inferior to any of the Lord of the Rings films.

I give it an "above average" for creativity! Not the ordinary Bible story like you've seen it before. I can understand why the evangelicals don't like this! But I sort of enjoyed it! but then, I don't think the Noah story in the Bible is to be taken literally, so this version was just as interesting as any other. I did enjoy giving Noah's children more personality than I think they have in the Bible story. But wait-did Methuselah die in the flood? Anyway, this version was about as logical as one man building a big boat and herding all kinds creatures on it and taking care of them for 40 days and 40 nights, etc., etc., etc. Too bad some people can't see the story for the beautiful allegory that it is.

This has to be THE worst movie based on a biblical story. No truth in it whatsoever. If you want to know why and how the flood really happened, read the first several chapters of Genesis.

This movie is a waste of time.

This movie is not for true Christians because it really deviates from the Biblical story...I fast forwarded through most of it and then finally just turned it off.

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."
