    Pros:

    The special effects of the flood and the collection of the animals.

    Cons:

    Having giant rock creatures in a biblical story didn’t seem to be the right option.

    Overall:

    Noah is a mix of fantasy, sci-fi and the book of Genesis. Living in a post-apocalyptic looking world, Noah starts seeing visions and translates them into the mission of saving two of every animal when man will be punished and cleansed of the sins of the past.

    It is an intense look into the evil of mankind from the Old Testament that leads to the world’s largest disaster. The special effects are done so well to make it believable and let the audience feel the magnitude of Noah’s mission while understanding the burden that is placed upon him and his family. The animals and the flood itself creates a wonderful imagery, but seems to go a bit far to include fallen angels that had turned into giant rock creatures that roam the earth. This took away from it being believable and would not be well accepted by people with religious beliefs who think it should be kept as close as possible to the book of Genesis.

    Anthony Hopkins plays Noah’s grandfather Methuselah, but seems like just a strange side story with his main focus on eating berries. Russell Crowe plays the role of Noah well throughout and pulls off the troubled focus that Noah has coming to grips with his mission and what he feels must be done to correct the sins of mankind. Not a happy feel good movie, but it is hard to think it could be when it is about flooding the world to start fresh.

    Pros:

    Great special effects, scenery and convincing acting.

    Cons:

    Can be a little slow at times and if you are strongly religious then you might have preconceived ideas on the storyline.

    Overall:

    This is a good movie that if you put aside any preconceived ideas on the Noah story and allow some other elements (like Rock creatures) to creep in, makes for an interesting watch. The scale of the scenery and special effects are terrific and worth watching. The movie is thought provoking and challenges what is really right and wrong, and the type of tests that await human kind post the decision made by Adam and Eve.
