The movie, Noah, is based on the Bible story about Noah’s Ark. This movie stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, and Anthony Hopkins. The story is about Noah, who lives with his wife, Naameh, and his three sons. He can also communicate with the creator of the Earth, God. One night Noah gets a dream about the end of the world, death by water. He figures out that God wants him to build an ark to survive the storm while the evil men are destroyed. Noah and his family are chased out of their home by people that don’t want Noah alive. On the way out, they meet Ila and take her in as their daughter. They get to where they need to be and build the ark there. Noah was told by God to bring every innocent (animal) with him into the ark along with his family so that the world may start over. But, someone doesn’t like the idea of the ark and goes out to destroy it.
The acting in this film was decent but a little bit too dramatic at some parts. The actors did a great job in their roles but could have been a bit more realistic in some parts. There were parts where you could tell that there was no true fear. In other parts they showed the perfect level of drama. A good thing they did with their acting was emotions. When there was a sad scene, the actors did a great job of showing the emotions that their characters were having. The special effects were amazing for the most part. Almost everything seemed like it was real, except for the animals. The animals moved a little bit too mechanically to be believable. But other than that, the special effects in Noah were very good.
I would give this movie 4 out of 5 stars because there were some times where there were too many unneeded details and it could have gone a little faster. This movie is rated PG-13 for a reason so it is definitely for the 12 and up crowd because it did have its moments. There were some very scary scenes that would be unsuitable for younger children and there were some intense and gory, graphic scenes that could be disturbing for kids. There were also some romantic scenes that didn’t show anything but implied adult content. I would not recommend seeing this if you are deeply religious for it adds some details that are not in the Bible that may be offensive. Noah hits theaters March 28 so be sure to check it out.
