FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: Sorry for the late review, but last night I sat down to watch the movie “Noah” which stars Russell Crowe (Robin Hood, Gladiator), Jennifer Connelly (Hulk, Blood Diamond), Ray Winstone (Hugo, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal, Thor: The Dark World), Emma Watson (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, 3:10 to Yuma), and Douglas Booth (From Time to Time, LOL). This movie is very, very loosely based on the Biblical story of Noah (Crowe) who gets told by God that he has to build an arc to survive a huge flood that will kill off mankind because of how evil it has gotten. This movie has many different things that never happened like huge rock monsters that help build the arc who are fallen angels and a big fight between men and Noah’s family. It was very difficult to review this movie. Being as religious as I am (I’m a Christian), I am going to review this movie as its own story rather than reviewing it for resembling the real story. Because if I were to review this movie of how close it is to the Bible, it would get the lowest score for the movie I reviewed and also it didn’t even seem like they tried to get close to what would happen in the real story. Anyway the story gave me a mixed impression. The beginning was slow and rocky and it took until the middle for it to pick up pace. I thought the special effects were terrific and the acting was great as well. I really thought the action scenes were great because of the display of special effects that made it look cool. Overall this movie wasn’t all too great. It was hard to watch because I was trying to review it for being its own thing rather than watching it for religious reasons. If you are a religious person, you should definitely avoid this movie because the only things they got right was Noah’s name, the flood, the arc, and the rainbow at the end. I mean they didn’t even call God “God” in the movie! If you aren’t religious than maybe you would have a better experience than me. FINAL SCORE: 30%= Burnt Popcorn*
*edited after Juicy Awards II, realizing that this movie should be reviewed for its poor Bible story interpretation.
This movie has been inducted into The Burnt Hall of Shame.
