“Noah” is directed by Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”) and is based on the story of Noah’s Ark. It stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, who were also co-stars in the 2001 film “A Beautiful Mind.”  Emma Watson from the “Harry Potter” film series is also part of the cast.

“Noah” Movie Review:

So, what’s our take on the movie?

It’s a big-scale movie and it is EPIC! The movie “Noah” is a retelling of a well-known biblical story and movie viewers will find that the movie is bigger and more exciting than the original “Noah” story.

Director Darren Aronofsky has made the biblical story come to life and turned it into something much easier to comprehend and enjoyed by the movie’s audience. The action scenes as well as Noah’s family life that was also told in the movie is a wonderful thing to see.

In the original “Noah” story, most people are focused on the building of the ark and the great flood, but not everyone knows Noah’s personal, or rather, family life. If you have seen “Braveheart” and “The Lord of the Rings,” you’ll get a mix of those two epic films in this movie.

Anthony Hopkins (“Hannibal,” “The Silence of the Lambs”) plays Methuselah, Noah’s grandfather, who is also the oldest man that is recorded in the Bible. Noah’s family values life and mankind, yet they lived amidst lost humanity.

In the movie, Noah gets visions where the Creator speaks to him telling him what mankind has done to the earth and it is time to put an end to it. He tells him that he is going to send a great big flood and Noah should get ready. He was instructed to build a refuge for the innocents, includingthe animals.

Russell Crowe as Noah did an amazing job while Jennifer Connelly, who played Naameh, his wife in the movie, is a lovely epitome of mercy. Emma Watson also  did wonderfully as Ila, Noah’s adopted daughter.

This is a movie that you should not miss. One word for it: EPIC.

And that’s the “Noah” movie review. “Noah” will be released in the U.S. on March 28, 2014  and on April 4, 2014 in the UK.
