'Noah' Review

The story of Noah as it is written in the King James Bible is about three pages. If you want to Google it, read it, then come back to this you can go ahead. I'll wait here as I continue to stream some of Clint Mansell's spooky and enthralling score to the new Darren Aronofsky film starring Russell Crowe.
Back? Yeah, so, not a whole heck of a lot there. But did you catch the tiny references to things you may not recall from Sunday School? The “giants in the Earth” and the “flaming sword”? These are the pools from which Aronofsky irrigates his 'Noah.' This is, to adopt a phrase, the “old, weird Bible,” and its visual language more resembles 'Lord of the Rings' than any typical sandal epic.

'Winter's Tale' makes 'Safe Haven' look like 'The Godfather.' It is an absurd story adapted in the most dreary way possible, with lifeless performances, dull dialogue and laughable special effects. I need to cross-reference my files, but I think it is the worst major studio release with respected actors in five years. If any of us cared about our culture at all we'd be gathering our pitchforks and storming Hollywood now.

'Noah' Graphic Novel Looks More Appealing Than the Actual Movie

'Noah' is less than a month away from hitting theaters and we still have no idea what to make of this thing. On one hand, almost every trailer has looked like a complete and total mess. On the other hand, this is the latest effort from Darren Aronofsky, a filmmaker whose incredible previous work has earned him the benefit of the doubt here. The latest material from the film only adds to our bafflement -- two new character posters solidify our worst fears, but the cover of the graphic novel adaptation of the film gets us interested all over again.

Russell Crowe goes from Christian allegory in 'Man of Steel' to the actual Bible days in Paramount's first 'Noah' trailer. The footage made the rounds at religious conferences, but now it has debuted online for all to see.
