Well, we all know the story of Noah’s Ark as it is told in the Bible. But the story in Noah is not quite like the original one. This one includes fantasy and sci-fi elements like magic and angels who are transformed into some kind of robot rocks. And I have to say the weapons that they use don’t seem to fit that era.
Overall I didn’t love the movie, but I didn’t hate it either. I thought the actors all did a great job portraying their character and the music fit the different scenes. Some elements in the movie were a tad over-the-top, like the angel-rock-robots. It’s great that Hollywood wants to make the story more appealing (maybe?), but that didn’t work. On the other hand, it did add some action to the movie.
On IMDB the movie got a score of 6, which is understandable. When I first saw the trailer in the cinema I got excited immediately. I was hoping it would be an amazing whirlwind of adventure, so I got a bit disappointed.
I give this movie:
