1. The filmâs cast wears clothing that would have been considered modern in the early 19th century! Seeing the characters walk around in shoes, use backpacks, and have fine stitched clothes was an immediate turn off for me from the first minutes of the film.Love the machine stitching and leather gloves!
2.Â The film promotes Evolution instead of Creation!!!Â How is this even possible in a Biblical movie? Noah sits down to shareÂ the story of creation to his family once again and the film shows how creatures of the ocean appeared, eventually turned into lizards, dinosaurs, apes, and finally humans. Nowhere does it mention that man was created in Godâs own image.
3. The main builders of the ark are angels who fell from heaven and becameÂ giant rock creatures! I know it sounds ridiculous and it is!These 6 armed rock creatures are Noahâs friend and help him build and defend the ark
4. Noah decides that God actually meant to kill everyone. While on the ark, Noah decides to end the human race by killing his familyIn the film, Noah contemplates suicide and murdering his family
5. The filmâs villain successfully sneaks onto the ark by using an axe to cutÂ a hole, befriends Noahâs son Ham to plot against his father and kill Noah
The true story of Noah is so powerful, so compelling, that you donât need all the Hollywood nonsense to enhance this film. Add a simple storyline a la James Cameron in Titanic and use todayâs technology to engage modern day viewers and piqueÂ their interest in one of the worldâs oldest stories. Unfortunately film director Darren Aronofsky completely missed this point andÂ the result is a cinematic disaster.
Watching this movie left a chilling effect on me as I left the theaters. I was outraged, upset, and simply mortified that a story of such epic proportions could be twisted around and retold in a way that leaves audiences completely voidÂ of the truth. I shouldnât be surprised though, the filmâs director Darren Aronofsky is aÂ self-proclaimed Atheist and yet this man directed the film!Â But as I researched more to find out the truth I found hisÂ self-proclaimed goal was to makeÂ Noahthe âleast Biblical Biblical movieâ. Aronofsky seems to have done the impossible, he took a Biblical story and made it into a secular film that does not mention God once.
I have never once given my opinion, I am only posting an article. Anyone saying that it's "sad that I thought it would be any different" has clearly missed the point of the post. Although yes, I would expect a movie based on a Bible story to be at least remotely Biblical in the same way that I expect a movie based on a book to at least resemble the book.
