I was given the movie NOAH to review in exchange for an honest blog review and promotion of a giveaway. This is in way shaped my opinion of this movie.
NOAH has received a LOT of controversy all over the place prior to it even hitting the theaters. Now that I’ve seen it first hand I can see way. I read somewhere, unfortunately I didn’t save the link because I had no clue I was going to be doing this review, that the producers of this movie wanted to keep it as close to the Bible as they possibly could and that they had cut out many aspects of the original screenplay. Knowing that going into watching this movie really makes me wonder how far off from the Bible it originally was?
This movie had many dark scenes in it and I honestly didn’t not follow it 100% because of that reason (if there are too many dark scenes I can’t follow along with the storyline to well with my current TV. Yes, that is a hint that I need a new TV.) However, my mother-in-law did watch this movie and she is a Bible reader.
She was highly upset with how they made this movie. She stated that it did NOT follow along with the story in the Bible worth a dime. You could see just how upset she was over it by how she described the movie. She proceeded to give me a lot of examples, but I told her to stop because I hadn’t seen the movie yet.
Now if you just watch this movie for purely an entertainment standpoint and not try to play the compare it to what is in the Bible it’s a really good movie. It has a lot of drama, action, and many great effects in it. That alone will captivate you as a viewer. There were many aspects of the movie where I was impressed with how they showed various scenes.
What are your thoughts on this movie?
