Brief Synopsis – Noah, a descendent of Adam is tasked with saving the animals and his family when The Creator devides to destroy thd world by flood.
My Take on it – Any movie that tskes a story from the Bible will probably come under criticism due to its using poetic license to tell the tale.
This movie is no exception to that.
Most of the changes made didn’t bother me so much because they attempted to fill on the gaps not mentioned per se in the original text.
The problem that I had was the fact that they turned Noah into a zealot hell bent on destroying everyone instead of making him someone who cares to help sustain and perpetuate life once he speaks with the Creator.
The special effects in this movie are astounding and credit should be given for the expert use of that medium to make this movie (at least) seem better than it truly is.
In my opinion, the best way to tell the story of Noah and the Ark is by listening to Bill Cosby’s routine about it. Unfortunately, this comedy sketch is so much better than this movie turned out to be.
Bottom Line – Was disappointed in the way that they turned the character of Noah into a zealot instead of someone obeying the words of thr Creator. Special effects tho are superb. Cosby’s Noah monologue is much more entertaining than this movie was.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
